For reasons I can't fathom, I feel really crap today. Maybe part of it is due to being tired and overworked. Maybe it's because I don't feel like I have a hope of getting out of here this year after all. It feels like my life is on hold again on a number of levels, and when I try to get back on track, something else comes up to throw me off... Like the bit where I have to prepare for peer observation on Tuesday pm, but the Accred. Bollox Visit is on Wednesday. Or the bit where I don't even have the time to do any of the reading I need to do for the course I am taking because I am constantly having to read stuff for the courses I am teaching. I had all these plans for creative things: got new art materials for my birthday and all, want to get on with my story and want to get back to the gym... I need a holiday! And it's only week two of the semester.

Thanks for the sympathy! And the advice about answers to students -- it is actually my usual strategy for exactly the same reason that you espoused: it commands more respect. :-)

As it happens the session went relatively well, if frustratingly for one of my two(!) students: his script wouldn't run, despite all three of us trying to figure out what the problem was. The other student's identical script worked. But hey. I guess that is the mystery of programming (I should say scripting, really!).

Too true about the Sixth Week Blues! I shall keep plugging away like a good little lecturer.
