The Week that Flew By

This week, in a long-delayed response to an email from my advisor, I wrote to her, "Now that I am teaching, each day seems to last a year but each week seems to last a minute." It's fulfilling work, but it is intense; because I teach one morning class and one evening class each Monday and Wednesday, those days feel like two. I've caught myself saying "yesterday" when referring to that morning...


Here's what captured my attention this week...

I'm reading: Student papers. They're solid, but I still do not recommend them. 

I'm listening to: On Friday night, I attended a concert organized by our friends' teenage daughter to raise funds for Hungry for Music. She performed "No One Else" from the show Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812--beautifully, I might add--and the song captivated me. 

I'm watching: Last night I saw Murder on the Orient Express. It was exactly what I was in the mood for: a campy caper. The performances were excellent, and it was suspenseful enough to be interesting without ever being tense. I won't lie--it's not a great movie. It is a fine one, though, and I left the theater in a good mood. 

What are you reading, listening to, or watching this week?
