I just realized that this week is the first of the final third of the term. Yikes. Also, how has this term gone by so quickly? I get a bunch of assignments in today that really kickstart the unending pattern of grading, returning assignments, receiving more that characterizes the end of term. It’s also the part of the term where students who’ve previously treated things lackadaisically begin to realize that they’ve been doing so and want to try and wheedle extensions out of me. I’m kind of a hard ass on the topic of extensions, though, right now, I’m kind of feeling their pain a bit as I could use an extension or two myself. At least the weather is finally cooling down…

These outfits are from before the temperature began to drop. As part of “Operation: Wear nothing but Pencil Skirts,” this skirt is a recent addition. It’s made of really stretchy jersey so it’s actually somewhat difficult to walk in, at least until it stretches out a bit (it’s kind of like a jersey covered elastic band). It’s also quite a bit longer than I might like — I’ve got it really hiked up here (wearing it at my waist puts it several inches below my knees) — and so I’m deciding whether I want to get it hemmed or leave it with a somewhat flexible length.

This was from a non-teaching day. And, confession time, I’m pretty sure these are actually jeggings. However, they’re flared and made of denim, rather than denim-printed spandex so I’m ok with this. They’re super comfy and replace, for the time being, my jeans of a heavier denim. I also enjoy how the mini-FR is all blur, all the time in his most recent appearances. This is probably a fairly accurate representation of him.
