I gave the freshmen their midterm this past morning. It turned out worse than I thought it would. After going through all of them, I decided to curve them by using the square root method. I want them to see their raw scores as well, but I don't think it is worth putting some of them at risk of a poor course average from which they may not be able to recover, even if they improve their work habits.
Last night I had a dream that I was looking at a printed list of my accomplishments, which included receiving public attention for my musical abilities. In the dream, my mother (who has been gone now for almost 9 years) was crying softly because her parents had been unable to support the development of her musical interests. As I get older, I am coming to realize that family karma presents lifelong challenges, even when the family members are gone.
Last night I also realized that I was hearing what appeared to be fragments of Bosnian in a dream. I had been stepping up my studying of it recently since I had come to a place in the textbook where I felt I was getting stuck and would benefit from some review. I have also downloaded an app that allows me to tune in to Bosnian radio stations on my phone. I have a bluetooth speaker I can send the sound to, which is better than the built-in phone speaker.
