WEDNESDAY: AM routine is a little more painful since I didn't get to sleep until around 1 AM. 9:10--ENG 1101. Debate on whether the SAT should be made optional as an admissions requirement. Learn that about half my class took both the SAT and the ACT. Wow. 10:20--GLC. Handmaid's Tale. Really good discussion. I love this class. Lunch. 12:40--Victorian Literature. Browning's "Porphyria's Lover" and "My Last Duchess." One of my absolute favorite units of the class. 2:15--Office hours. Students seem very concerned about their grades and progress. 3--Pick up Child. Unwind a bit. Read some Mark of Athena. 6:30--Take Child to dance. 7--Ballet. 8--Home, listening to C-SPAN radio. Child is very engaged and says that when we get home, I should run and turn this on the tv because "I'm pretty interested!" Listen to debate, with interruption to put Child to bed at 9:30 (she would prefer to stay up, but since her sleep was interrupted the night before, I want to make sure she gets at least a semi-decent night's sleep). To bed at soon as we're done watching the debate.
