Day 5 – Oh Baby, Marking Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over.

The official reading and writing may be done but I still have to assign percentage grades. At this point it feels like there’s no end but I know it all has to be in by Wednesday so there’s that little headache. Guess who’s not coming home at a decent hour tomorrow night?

It’s also the first day of term for my other teaching job. I informed them that I probably won’t be available for very much longer. Tutoring and the MA is enough for me, I think. I’ve been seeing spots and almost blacking out every time I go to work in the afternoon so that’s not a good sign. Although I do have one student that I want to see ‘graduate’ from the programme. Would it be creepy if I told him he could email me any essays he wants checked? Probably. I’m think I’m just having a very To Sir With Love  moment.

I would have taken the other job...

I would have taken the other job.

I know I’m in the final stretch but I’m so exhausted I just want to pass out. “I think I can, I think I can…”

I’m also enjoying the office a little too much. It’s only a matter of time before I bring an air mattress in there. I know CH would be game for that.

Or someone can buy me this. Wishlist!

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Danced to ‘It’s Like That’ in order to wake up. It’s better than coffee…and that’s the way it is. Huh!
  • Started a Tumblr account and immediately got bored with it.
  • Went to work and rubbed my temples like an angry old lady when one of my students refused to do his work.
  • Watched Home Movies with the commentary on: “Nobody’s staring at me. People are staring at you and your stupid rich-bitch dress”

Random “I mean, right?!” lyrics of the day:

I can go for being twice as nice
I can go for just repeating the same old lines
Use the body now you want my soul
Ooh, forget about it now say, no go

I, I, I ‘ll do anything
That you want me to do
Yeah, I, I, I’ll do almost anything
That you want me to
But I can’t go for that, no
No can do

– Hall & Oates
