The School Year is Almost Over!

Yes.  That is a note of relief you hear in my title.

In the past year, I've taught eight classes, at three different colleges/universities.  That's a lot of lesson plans.  And essay reading/re-reading.  Not to mention the paper grading.  Almost 300 students times 10-15 papers, a piece.  Well, is it any wonder why I've let my blogging slip?

Not to mention my dissertation.  Which, frankly, I haven't made as much progress on as I'd hoped.  But, I have a research trip scheduled for July.  So.  Then.  Writing, disserting, all the time. 

'Cause I'm only teaching one class each semester this summer.  And, working on a gender project for the Dean's office.  And starting work on a novel.  And making product for two businesses.  And setting up the fall/winter show schedule.

Goodness.  I need a vacation.  Or a chill pill.  Or an extra day in the week. 

No one ever talks about how tiring living a dream life will be...


  1. Keep on Keepin' on, my friend! and don't forget to sleep!

  2. Wow, goodness gracious you ARE busy! And even though the school year is almost done it sounds like you're not going to get much of a break this Summer. Well, I certainly hope you're enjoying the dream life even though it comes with a LOT of work!

    P.S. I vote for an extra day in the week!
