My Inner Bean Counter

I've spent the last several hours scheduling out a bunch of schedules and stuff for a committee. It's not what I signed up for when I got a phud in English, you know? It's time-consuming, nit-picking, playing with numbers and dates and stuff, and not at all metaphorical or fun.

And yet, I feel strangely satisfied that I've completed a draft of something, and that it is potentially useful.

I am, right now, deeply in touch with my inner bean counter, and she is happy.

    Alas, that is how we get sucked into middle management/admin work in academia: those little moments of immediate satisfaction on a job that can be completed in one day. Be afraid, Bardiac.
