Today was rough. I was supposedly supervising some independent study students in a lab working on an independent study class, although the very competent uncredentialed colleague was doing a great job without my help thankyouverymuch. Then I had three lab sections of my lab, and concurrently to that I was teaching my research students a surgery for the first time. Well, I lucked out. The independent study went fine without me. The three lab sections went pretty well, though I noticed the students seemed more tired in the later afternoon one. And the research students, with far too little direction from me, did a very nice job nonetheless on the surgery. Whew. Got away with it. But I will not triple book again.
