Okay, the time has come once again for final exams. I will also admit, that grading has kicked my ass this quarter. I have been swamped with student papers. There are times that I can detach myself from the student’s work, and just grade… but sometimes it is difficult. Sometimes I take it personally.
There are times I want to stab offending questions with my red pen, hoping that that error never occurs again. And yet it appears over and over, like some monstrous mockery of mathematics, preying on another victim.
I’ll keep up the good fight. I don’t want to speculate on why aggressive music and horror movies are my medium of choice to listen to while grading. Perhaps it is because it suits the whole bloody business. Or maybe it’s just what suits my personality.
Here is another finals week playlist.
- Combichrist – Throat full of glass
- Saliva – Click Click Boom
- Godsmack – Voodoo
- Johnny Cash – Hurt
- Skinny Puppy – Pro-Test
- Emilie Autumn – One Foot in Front of the other
- Seether – Fake it
- Saliva – Ladies and Gentlemen
- Death*Star – The Quick and the Dead
- Paint – Cups (Extreme edition)
As for folks who follow my blog – thank you for your patience. I know I’ve been squirrelly this quarter.
But I’ll be coming out swinging in Winter quarter.
