I must have corrected 60 theory tests today. It was a grind, but I'd rather work than loaf. The full day of work today fulfilled half of my obligated two work days for the Certificate of Merit program this year.
Working at Transfiguration Church in Castro Valley was a pleasant change. The room we theory test correctors were situated in had many windows, which contributed a more cheery outlook to the proceedings. Our regular correcting room in the music building at Chabot College has no windows, which can make an occupant start to feel stir-crazy after being sequestered for hours within. I enjoyed the venue change.
The teacher sitting directly across from me for most of the day at one point uttered this memorable line:
"This student of mine scored 91%... the same score as last year. Another mediocre result."
Is this fantasy? Am I a participant in this madness?
