Open-Thread Wednesday: The End of the Semester Approaches!

17144881396_2dc08d8fdc_k

Spring has finally arrived in the midwest, and it’s a little more than two weeks after Easter (or only just over a week, if your tradition follows the Julian calendar). For those whose academic calendar follows the semester system, that means the end of the term will soon be upon us, with commencement following.

Between now and then, we’ll be racing to get through the last of our material for our courses, grading assignments and exams, planning for commencement festivities, and saying goodbye to students we’ve journeyed with as they move on to the next stage of their lives.

How do you approach all that the next weeks hold? What keeps you motivated? What helps you manage the stress that the end of the academic year brings? What has you looking to the future? Let us know in the comments!
