Last night, I went to see Happy Go Lucky, Mike Leigh’s new movie. It was excellent and not nearly as sombre as his other movies. If you have never seen a Mike Leigh movie, I recommend you check him out. He does plain, good cinema. Nothing fancy, just good script and good acting.
The exams continue. I have had three more crying girls, two guys who wanted to shake my hand, two nervous breakdowns and have been informed of three bereavements, four broken bones and a cut hand. I have had depressingly few foreign nationals.
Out of the 500+ students I will have examined by Saturday, there have been six who were truly musically talented. 1.2%. I have to admit that makes me feel sort of good about myself… but at the same time that means 98.8% of students I have heard have been unmusical in varying degrees. That is a lot of unmusic to listen to. 113 hours, actually.
Gosh, I miss my knitting! 16 down, 2 days to go.
