But I had made the mistake of applying for a bunch of jobs last year. And now that they are almost ALL panning out, I am up to my eyeballs in classes. I have two online classes right now, which end in October, I pick up two more (perhaps THREE) starting in mid-September, and then will likely pick up FOUR more in October, on an 8-9 week schedule. WOW!
I'm hiring a maid. In fact, I'm probably going to pay for an hour or two of babysitting a few days a week, right after school, just so I can get all the grading done. Can I pay someone to sleep for me, and transfer it? Who needs sleep anyway?
It's not like I'm an art teacher, who gets to play soft music in class while everybody sits around and paints a vase of flowers. Grading papers takes a while. I have to grade hundreds of papers in a single class--and to have 1-2-3-4-... oh, my God, EIGHT classes in a single semester (maybe NINE), well, I must be insane.
If one of my future blogs ends with gibberish at the end and trails off to nothing, you'll know I've gone off the deep end. Please look for signs I've lost it, and call the authorities.
