Pulling hair out...

I JUST WANT TO READ!!!

*breathe, breathe, breathe*

Have graded two classes of research papers. Will polish off another today. Then I have three more classes to grade over the weekend The pile of books on my nightstand is laughing at me.

Hell, at this point I'd play Nintendo DS, CLEAN MY HOUSE, or do anything else not related to paper grading if I could.

*ducking head and going back in*

I love you all! I'll be free again one day!

  1. I have been known to clean toilets, organize odd closets within my house, and even do ridiculous amounts of laundry and ironing .... just to avoid grading reasearch papers. I get your feeling. But 2 sets? Seriously? Good for you!

  4. You're almost done!!! Just think of the big fat book that will be waiting for you when you're done. And all the challenges you can join, and all the lists you can make.....or am I the only one who enjoys that?? LOL

  5. Isn't working life just a drag - it gets terribly in the way of laughing books (I love the image) and other wonderful things. I cannot wait for the xmas break either - just hold on!

  6. Sounds like there's a light at the end of the tunnel! Not much more to do, and we'll all be waiting when you get back :)

  9. I feel your pain. I have a hefty stack of papers on my desk as well, and although I should have started them today, I know I won't crack the first page until Monday.

    I'm going to regret it, I know.

  11. There, there, Andi. It's almost over. We'll be here after you've finished your papers and had a reading binge and a margarita or two.

  12. You could make life easier and provide blogging fun by letting us grade them. I'm sure we'd do an... interesting job.

  13. I find that downloading free hour long downloads of things like diner dash is the greatest way to procrastinate. If you get them from Virginmedia and play continuously they last for hours without cutting you off!

    Also - the mean an online house selling on Amazon refunded me my money instead of sending me a copy of The Sugar Queen :(

  14. Aww you poor thing. I hope you get some time to yourself soon. I see in your margin that you're reading the Sugar Queen, I have that as a "to read" book and I can't wait. I hope it's as good as Garden Spells. I thought that was such a good book...

    Anyway, hang in there Andi!
