Just kill me now

Just Kill Me Now (Not Really)



Ok. I am dumb. Or maybe just a Junior Faculty Member trying to Do It All. This is what my plate looks like:

  • Four classes on Quarter system -- three sections of survey, so semi-easy in prep terms, except that I get confused, because they're all on different schedules. Those are hybrids, so online discussions to grade, plus a 200-level online course I've never taught before and I'm hugely behind on reading and commenting on their posts. Shit.
  • Job apps starting to be due. 10 distinctly different cover letters to write.
  • Book Reviews still waiting
  • One advisory/governance committee (would you please choose three sub-committees and by the way, would you take lead on one of these?)
  • One other committee -- assessment stuff that will be great, but requires output.
  • Actual work for the classes -- Finish updating assignments on surveys for the last 4 weeks. Finish assigning primary source presentations for the online class (add/drop FINALLY over and I know who's in the class). Grade two weeks of survey discussions and three weeks of online discusssions. Actually re-read what I've assigned. Write first exam for early-beginning survey. Prepare for peer observation in same.
  • Phonebank for Dems on Saturday morning.
  • Next week -- go to lecture by visiting scholar on Thursday.
  • Go to State Historians meeting in town 5 hours away on Friday night for Saturday meeting. With boss. Possibly after lunch w/ said scholar
  • Two job apps should be in by now.
  • lather, rinse, repeat


Note I have not included exercise, dog, fence (yeah, still not entirely painted. It's rainy), ADHusband

(quick and undeserved grading break, via Rana):






If you see me, please remind me I have to go.

You have to go! :-)

I know just how you feel...except that right now I am serene and calm knowing that I have a break through Tuesday.

And then it will start up all over again.

(Although thankfully not job applications. GOOD LUCK!)
