I imagine that for many people the last two weeks of the semester can feel something like this …
Easy scheduling of a committee meeting. Seriously, opening an all green Doodle is like heaven.
Polite emails that include a greeting, a coherent message, and then a thank you.
Two words: Free food.
… and $2 Tuesdays at Sports.
Superior coffee and non-routine refreshments.
When people come to your office hours to talk about something other than grades, grade adjustments, grade disputes …
That feeling after you give a flawless presentation of interesting results and answer every question successfully.
When students laugh at your corny jokes.
Getting something (anything) right and someone else notices.
When your conference registration is waived!
Positive AI evaluations.
When students pay attention and engage during 9am Friday discussion sections.
Significant p values.
