miss my students, but not my early morning classes.

spend some time one-on-one with as many students
as possible, and help them link to jobs, or the right
person to tell them about courses, and to talk about
how to prepare for exams.

where it's going. I'm at the point when a lot of
decisions come into play. So I need to take a breath,
have a decent sleep, and then continue tomorrow.
Thanks for your kind encouragement. It helps a lot
when I'm on a major push, like I am now with this
Have a getting-what-needs-to-be-done-done day.
