Well . . . . I am FINALLY done grading finals!!!!!
23 research papers, 54 essays, and 24 biz english portfolios (filled with various emails) along with other various tests and exams have all been read and assigned grades.
. . . sigh . . . that was the most grading I think I've ever done. Three college level writing classes is pushing the limit of sanity. :)
And, yes, I really did use all the ink up in a total of 5 pink pens--all different brands. (I even had to resort to grading the last set of papers in bright blue ink.)
