grading, nene, and sienna
yesterday, the students in com 201 took their final. for the most part, the scores are really impressive. the best part is that a ton of the 95 students improved their scores from exam one to exam two to exam three. for me, that's the best. this class and these students were more than special and i hope to write more about them both when grading is finished.
i continue to house-sit and cat-sit for sarah while she's in italy. her pad is in capital hill, about two blocks from victrola cafe on 15th, walking distance to everything. every morning and every evening i feed sarah's cat, nene, and with each feeding she becomes more and more nice to me. she has neither scratched me nor bitten me for three days!
when sarah returns, spring will be nearby, which reminds me of this picture - taken nearly two summers ago.
two nights ago, sarah called from sienna. she had just returned from a day trip to florence and was practically speechless from what she had seen. sarah returns sunday night.
