I have not been able to get on top of stuff yet this semester. There might be something to *not* having so many classes and immediate deadlines that is
Sigh. And having only small amounts of homework so far is also messing up my usual motivation. I have two homework batches to grade today, and then one more class to prep for tomorrow, and what I *should* do is knock those out right away so that I can work on job apps or my article. But instead, grading these response papers, one by one, has been like sloooooowly pulling off a band-aid, each one followed by plenty of internet procrastination. Grrr.
I need to do something to re-set my work habits or hire someone to be my whip-holder or something. I also need to start those oh-so-annoying community college job apps. Or plan a plan for nonacademic jobs. I still haven't made any sort of decision about that.
Hmph. How am I going to stave off a nap while grading homework papers?
