So I got the acceptance for a spring conference today (yay, though not like a tremendous yay because it's not entirely unexpected) and I thought, "Hey, I don't feel like prepping for class! I don't feel like grading! How's about I dust off that abstract and do some preliminary researchy things!"
Dude, like EVERY book I'd want to check out of our library about my topic has already been checked out by my diligent students who are apparently beginning their papers for me three full weeks before they are due.
I suppose I should be happy? Indeed, I am happy. But this also means that I really do need to grade and/or prep. Harrumph.
