By the end of the second day of teaching in my week (Wednesday), I had a stack of papers for each of the three courses I'm teaching this semester.
I did that to myself.
At least most of them are really short (paragraph assignments), and the others are short diagnostics for the writing class, so I won't grade them, just get to know the students a bit and be alerted to some potential problems.
Still, I did it to myself. And now I have to go read more of the diagnostics.
