need vacation

pitiful that I should be burning out so soon but the last thing I want to do today is grade papers and prepare for class. I'd be happy to do my own work (although I do realize that the grass may only look greener over there) but I just don't feel like playing the teacher role today. it's hard. it stresses me out. it takes time away from what I'd rather be doing.

but of course they rely on me (I guess. I don't know for sure) to come up with something to keep them fruitfully engaged every Tuesday and Thursday and class meets so early I can't do what I like to do and just put everything off until the morning.

bleah. I don't know what I will do when I have to get a real job that involves teaching 2 - 3 classes at once and having no time off during the semester. I can barely get any of my own work done as is.
