OK ... I know we're supposed to share "yer pain".
And, I'm aware the name of the blog is College Misery ...
BUT ... I'm having a rare "life doesn't (totally) suck" moment.
Yes, I did just get a letter today from the IRS about that "little" amount I owe them.
And, earlier, I did have to address an online student's stunningly misinformed comprehension of wombat emotional health.
But ... right now, I'm on my back porch, basking in a cool evening breeze (after a pleasantly warm day). I'm grilling a nice piece of meat, with a decent adult beverage in my hand. My SO is watching the mini miscreants riding their bikes on a fortunate cul-de-sac (city maintained) adjacent to our little plot of land which (unusually) abuts to the rear, not the back of the adjacent street, but a strip of trees.
Yeah, if you walk through the house you will sense it was bought on a post-grad school shoestring, constructed by architecture school dropouts, and the street looks like Archie Bunker's neighborhood - but I'm on my back porch ...dammit!
And at midnight tonight the second-to-last week of a quarter will end, so a crap pile of final papers (or lame ass excuses) will be overflowing my in box tomorrow morning ...
OK ... cool breeze ... grilling ... (now more) adult beverage ... (clinging to) ahh, the moment.
