I find myself in possession of approximately 110 student essays, each awaiting my painstaking care and attention. What a lovely situation to be in on this Monday afternoon!
While I would very much like to go bury my head under a duvet and dream happily of a life in which I do not have to read freshman composition essays, it seems that instead I must actually begin grading. Oh, woe! Wail! Rend! Weep! Gnash!
The only consolation I have is that there will be three glorious hours of Heroes to watch tonight, and I will be able to enjoy every minute of it, guilt free, if only I do my due diligence with the grading. I’m ready to get started on that any minute now.
