Apology to third years.

Our TA union called a strike last night.  I have mixed feelings about the situation (I think everyone does).  Fortunately, teaching third years, I have not encountered the verbal berating some of the other grad students/TAs have: my students are a bit more aware of the complex position in which we find ourselves.  It’s difficult to ignore emails from good students who are earnestly trying to improve their work (I have an unusual number of these students this year).  I’ll miss hearing their ideas for their performance project, and working with them in tutorial (which was starting to be a lot of fun).  Hopefully I’ll be back there soon.
