and that's done

I waited until the end of class, after everyone presenting today had presented, to make the announcement. Apparently a couple people had already heard (Facebook, maybe).

I held it together okay though at one point I had to stop and take a deep breath to steady my voice. It still feels kind of surreal. (We've been asked to just go ahead and assign whatever grade the student was earning at that point as a final grade).

This is the first time I ever had to do something like this and I heartily hope it's the last.


What especially stinks is I now have somewhere around 20 student papers to read, comment on, and grade. I can't put it off as I have things I must do tomorrow after class.

2016 just needs to stop already.
