Today's Gratitude Item: Managing to fix my colour chart program so that the labels are readable (black labels on light colours, white labels on dark colours). Whilst this sounds like something really simple, it was surprisingly tricky to implement.

Today's Gratitude Item: Marking two classes worth of programming assessments. It took a while and was a bit tedious but I'm very glad that it is done.

Today's Gratitude Item: Writing a Python program to automatically copy and rename a .pdf to generate marking sheets for my students. When faced with 80 files that needed to be created and individually named, writing a program to do the hard work made sense. This time around, things went remarkably smoothly. That almost never happens. Usually I go around in tight little circles for days trying to figure out how to get something to work.
