but I don't think that up until now I had ever graded a paper at 1am. seeing the day through in the middle of the night gives one a special feeling as though one is special for keeping watch when your half of the earth is asleep. someone has to stay up and make sure everything goes ok and I guess this week it is my job.
if I'm up like this tomorrow night I might do laundry after I grade papers. the new laundromat at the end of the block is open 24 hours and is discounted from midnight to 6am. I'm not sure I want to wheel my laundry down Mission Street in the middle of the night but really it's just around the corner so I wouldn't be wheeling very far.
you know I have no idea what I will be doing or where I will be doing it a year from now. this bothers me some.
