For some reason, Tuesday made me extremely grumpy. I think it's just that I have a lot of face time early in the week, and it eventually wears me down. Plus there's the stress of never quite knowing what will go wrong in lab, and so then trying to figure out how to triage things is stressful. In addition to the salt problem, we had some difficulties with the salt meters and with the chloridometers. The students eventually figured out how to work with the chloridometers, but all of the collective issues meant that instead of individual lab groups collecting individual data, we had to aggregate data across the whole class. It's not the end of the world, but it's better if all of the students get to gain experience with all of the instrumentation.

Also, next time I should get even more crayfish. Twenty-four was barely enough.

Does anyone want some crayfish?

But. There are only three more labs to go. The remaining three labs have their fair share of moving pieces to manage, but that's a finite number of labs remaining, so I'm starting to feel like maybe I WILL survive the semester after all.

Meanwhile, the Giant Stack of Grading is still pretty huge.

Back at it.
