Today I taught my last class. It was Marbury v. Madison, which I’ve always loved teaching. Students tried very hard to guess why the Judiciary Act of 1789 was unconstitutional, and there was heated debate. The winners got unicorns, a tiara, and a copy of the Constitution. It was a lot of fun!
I listened to Pachinko by Min Jin Lee on the way there and back. I love this book so much! It’s the saga of a Korean family living in Japan. It’s very beautifully written, heartbreaking at times, and it makes me crave kimchi (because at one point in the story the characters make and sell it). I might have to take a trip to one of my favorite Korean supermarkets tomorrow for lunch!
I know you won’t miss the commute, but won’t you miss the student interaction? Mixed feelings, I’m sure…
