Happy Sunday! I'm glad to report that the sun hath somewhat returneth. So what if it snowed yesterday!? And I don't want to talk about it...
Despite the whacky weather, it was another good week. And I know that there are harsh weather conditions all over these days. Stay safe out there!
This marks the end of the semester at the university. Chaco's practically all moved out of the dorm, and Wolfgang brought one smallish load of his junk. Finals week is next week, and I turned in my last paper yesterday. It feels sort of weird to not have anything coming up due. I was at a loss when I first sat at my desk this morning, so I went over to the tutor site I work through.
They have a "resource" page where anyone can post a homework-type question and tutors will answer. The link gets plenty of traffic, so I know there will always be something to do over there. It keeps my brain awake and keeps my idle hands from doing the devil's work.
Some of the other tutors don't like it. "Why should we be working for free?", they moan. "This is just for lazy students to get someone else to do their homework!", they chide.
As for me, I see it as standing out in the food court offering little samples on a toothpick. There are plenty of other free answer-this resources on the internet, so why not add ours to the mix? I believe people actually learn from it, even though yes, there are the lazies. Plus, I like to see how other tutors answer questions. It's a good thing IMO. Although there was a "who's the daddy?" type question on there earlier today. At first I thought it was a nursing school question, but it actually looks like something more for Maury Povich...
Along those lines (tuting, not "who's the daddy?"), I'm set to meet with a new summer tutee next week. I'll wait to take on any more until I have a better idea of how busy my summer class will keep me.
And lastly, it's Mother's Day so I want to wish all my mom friends a happy one. We've never made a big deal out of the Hallmark Holiday around here. I've told my kids that "every day is Mother's Day" for me, and it's true.
I'm also grateful to have had my own sweet mother for so many years, so Happy Mother's Day to her in heaven.
