Why there should always be a box of candy in the office:

I might have eaten a third of a box of Fannie May candy that was left open in the office today…  I better replace that sometime before I leave.

Each morsel melted away some of my stress over research projects, but not enough.

My personal agenda has been to really push students into a new realm of strong writing with this project.  I want to leave some really positive mark on writing in one class.  I just love writing so much.  There is a looming cloud of panic over some students, and that metaphorical storm dropped some rain on my trek toward the finish line.

I wish I had a cape.  Or a guardian angel.  And a fresh start.

I am so glad that we don’t actually have nerves on our brain to trigger pain.  But the emotional impact called “stress” is no fair trade-off.
