So I sat with a student and went over her rough draft with her, word by word. It was almost solid run-on sentences among other problems. Then she turned in a final draft and she had fixed NONE of the things we marked. Final draft was exactly the same as the rough draft.
I don't know why I bother, sometimes.
Thu Sep 15 2005 17:49 The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring:
I got more than my share of bulb catalogs in the mail this year. Whenever I get a catalog, I want every flower in it. Today, I realized that the discout offers for advance order were expiring--one of them today! So I spent the afternoon going through possibilites, making a big chart to compare prices, and ordering. I have spent way too much money, and I'll really be busy when my boxes arrive. For example, I ordered 200 more crocus bulbs to plant around the stepping stones. I loved what I did last fall so much that I want to do the whole thing.
Anyhow, the garden should look spectacular. I got some different flowers to try.
