I’m Pretty Sure I’m a Failure

*grumble*grumble* What a lousy day. *grumble*grumble*

Here’s a tip, kiddies: don’t go into teaching unless you have thick skin, because you’re going to take hits from all sides—from the administration, the other faculty, the bad students, the good students …

Tomorrow will be better. Tomorrow will be better. Tomorrow will be better.

Except that I’m not prepared for tomorrow’s lectures yet and I’m not through my stack of papers to grade. Damn.

Maybe tomorrow won’t be better.

My best buds are probably going to be the victims of some drunk dialing tonight: “Hey man, I don’t suck, do I? You’d tell me if I did, right?”

    I’ve been at it for 36 years. It was never better nor worse than it is now. Just keep on keeping on.

    “Except that I’m not prepared for tomorrow’s lectures yet and I’m not through my stack of papers to grade. Damn.”

    I bet all you’re going to hear tomorrow is “when do we get our papers back!? When do we get our papers back!?” ;)

    Well, I made it through, and got most of my grading done last night …

    Larry, I haven’t heard from you in awhile—I was sure you’d stopped reading. Good to see you!
