Today is the day. December 17 2010. It is a special day for me if you count exams as special. I have worked on my end of course paper for a few weeks now and at long last it is finished and ready to hand in (well it was ready two days ago). It is only 2500 words but I am well pleased with it. If I dont get a good mark there is no justice in the academic world and I will stamp my feet, you just know I will do that. I have spent this morning helping those new to computers make their work look good. including making a dotted line disappear for which there was no formatting information. One of the girls left part of her assignment at home and had to re-write 500 words.
This morning we sat in the library by the window and watched the snow gently falling, dusting the lawn with delicate crystals. The sun came out and they faded into the grass, they were gone.
