Sometimes, we get so tired, we just have to laugh. Here in academic land, as the semester progresses, things seem to move faster and faster and faster. And faster. Around March, it started to feel like someone hit high-speed on the ol’ hamster wheel, and didn’t let go!
Tomorrow, the spring semester ends and we celebrate the success and achievement of our students who graduate and leap the chasm from college to career. We hope; it’s not always a linear path with the uncertainties and challenges our grads face these days.
While preparing for the ceremony tomorrow, my colleague in the office and I were getting a little punchy and to my mind came the image and hilarity of the old I Love Lucy episode where she and Ethel are madly and furiously trying to work the line at the chocolate factory; and with their apparent success, the supervisor just says, speed it up. Yep, we can relate!
Now, can we please have some chocolate?!
