End of the Idyll

No, not spring break -- I still have a week to go before I get to that.

No, here's what it is: for the past hours, I've been caught up on my grading. In two and a half hours, that's all going to change, as a small wave of papers comes in.

Then a stack of bluebooks three hours later.

Then bluebooks again 45 hours after that.

Then 72 hours more to (hopefully) finish it all before spring break actually does begin.

I know this is hardly a unique story (my friend M. told me she just received one hundred and thirty-five three-page papers!), but right now, it seems overwhelming, and I'm having trouble packing up my stuff to leave for work, because I know what's waiting for me once I get there.
