A Odd KNUE Weekend
I rarely get bored, but at KNUE a weekend easily gets boring. I’ve had to read lots of bland papers by people who really aren’t trying to work on their writing. One student blithely informed me that she doesn’t like writing and so she plagiarized. I asked if she thinks its okay for her students to cheat on their assignments that they don’t like.
On top of that I have to check them all for plagiarism. Several probably plagiarized because the writing is just off. One guy probably handed in his narrative essay from last term. It’s exhausting to figure out so in the end I wind up just giving low points for ideas/creativity and leave it at that.
The school is always dead on the weekend. Now I think winter break has started so it’s even more desolate. I’ve watched several videos and tweaked my facebook page. Last night I went to dinner with a friend. Finding decent food is a struggle in the end we gave up and got some fried pork cutlets and then went to a cafe. Finding good food was never a problem in Jinan.
I went back to the office to use the internet this evening, but the door’s locked. Then I went over to the library forgetting school’s out. It’s closed. So now I’m outside the library with my laptop using the wifi. Weird.
Guess I won’t get much job hunting done tonight.
