I had no idea the weight of the Paraphrase. Sure, the book will be at least 700 pages long. It’ll be heavy. But the weight of it on my shoulders was apparently enormous. I’ve been in a relatively vegetative state since sending it out, which is rather uncharacteristic of me.
I’m crawling out now, though. Slowly but surely.
I did spend a few minutes yesterday looking over my most recent teaching evaluations. It was interesting: I’m consistently scoring low (relatively, like a 4.4 out of 5) on “starting and ending class on time.” Odd. I never had that anomaly at Rochester. It must be that these time-constrained cadets take such things a bit more seriously.
