I wasn't behind, but now I have two big stacks of papers to grade.
And a thesis prospectus to work on.
And another student asked me to read and give him some feedback on a project.
I don't know which way is up, but since time is linear, things will move along and end at some point. Hopefully, by that point, I will have turned in all the grades for the semester.
But for now, well, put me at overwhelmed.
And secretly laughing at someone here who's a bit of a jerk for being a jerk and creepy. They're separate, jerk and creepy, but this person is managing both.
I heard another person in a meeting today say these improbable words, "I'm looking forward to assessment."
I was rude enough to actually comment on the uniqueness of the statement aloud during the meeting. It's obvious that I'm not administrative material, I think.
I was in another meeting this week where an administrator actually acknowledged that our [campus group] had been forcing faculty to collect a huge bunch of data and had never used it and had no intention of ever using it. The administrator didn't, however, acknowledge that the collection of all that data might have been a waste of faculty time.
