Taking a Breather for My First Love

Did grading for 3.5 hours straight this morning. Will be administering midterm exams in a little less than an hour from now — taking a breather to heat up my lunch and maybe take a peak at The Elegant Universe.

Before I got into English language and literature, my first love was science, especially astrophysics. It’s probably the reason why I pushed all the way to learning Calculus and taking an astronomy class in college, even though, as an English major, I needn’t have. Calculus and astronomy were my last official links to my earlier love of astrophysics.

So documentaries of astrophysics, especially cosmology, hit that “happy” button deep in me, but, what with staying late grading last night, I missed most of this current documentary. So I’m thrilled that I can see it online — thank God for PBS and broadband connection!

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
