Sounds about par for the course for this time of year. Being a TA for the first time this semester, I have spent the past week trying to decide what is worse: writing my own 25-page research paper for a seminar or grading 40 10-page "research" papers written by freshman undergrads. Surprisingly, I've come to determine that I'd choose the first option. But in the event that I had a 25-page paper due for a seminar, I'd probably choose the grading.

I love the banner! Fabulous picture!

Know what you mean about procrastination. Reading blogs is my favourite avoidance tactic especially for school related tasks!

My house is never as clean as it is right before a big paper is due. Seems my dust bunny tolerance drops lower and lower as the deadline gets closer and closer! Or maybe its just that I'd rather polish the taps on the sink then actually write the darn thing.

The grammarian in me is wondering if the correct term is swiffered, or swiffed. Regardless, that sounds like a very productive day!
