Still Grading but not Wallowing

This post must be brief. I'm still trying to get all my papers graded. I have until 4:00 p.m. tomorrow to do grade changes before report cards are printed, but I'm going to try to stay awake as long as possible tonight to get a bunch done. I have to take a online test tomorrow for work, and I must get my assignments completed for my library science class. Anyway, while I am still grading tonight, I'm not wallowing in bad feelings like last night. Tonight, I feel determined rather than depressed. I have to get caught up so I can make time to blog about some more interesting things. Things like reading Frankenstein, the Basquiat exhibit, The World's Fastest Indian, and procrastination.

Okay, I have to get back to work now. Later.

Once I again, I am sitting in my chair the night before grades are due with a mile-high stack of papers waiting to be graded. Why do I do this to myself? I can't figure it out. Do I just not care enough anymore? I feel bad for my students, who have to wait forever for me to give them papers back. Just last week, I was frustrated by the prof for my library science class--she didn't get our quiz grades posted as fast as I thought she should. How can I complain about someone else when I am the worst? It really depresses me to have to grade so much crap, and my students give me crap more often than not. I'm such a glutton for guilt that I persist in giving them assignments. And I do feel guilty, which contributes a great deal to my guilty feelings. Thank goodness, the other parts of my life are going so well. Otherwise, I might not make it until the morning. I guess I better get back to work now. Good night all!
