It is that time of the semester when I despise writing. Unfortunately there is still much to be done. I no longer wish to hold a pen, pencil, or type but I am forced to in order to get grades. After a few short weeks it will be back to the grind. More writing and more grades. Then on to grad school or a job, both require writing. All that is left to look forward to is retirement, which does involve a bit of writing. Writing checks for the grandkids and signing birthday cards. I can handle that.
