O, For a Schedule Free of Meetings

Today is one of those days when the idea of cancelling my classes and returning to bed sounds like the best possible way to spend my day. In days of yore, I might have done such a thing. But you know what? As much as I want to do that today, I won't. This is not because I have some sort of heightened sense of responsibility but because it would be too much of a pain in the ass to reschedule the meetings with students that will fill my afternoon.

I hate meetings. And the longer I'm in this job, the number of meetings doubles - quadruples. It's like the meetings are breeding.

Maybe it won't be as long a day as it seems like it will be?

(What makes it worse is that I've got another afternoon of meetings on tap for tomorrow. Such a time suck, meetings are.)

It's good to know I'm not alone. (And I KNOW you feel my pain, Dean Dad!)
