It Is Done.

Scoop out my eyes. They're useless now that I've finished marking.

(Which is not to say the assignments were bad, because they weren't. For the most part, I found much to encouraged by. It's just that reading forty six short stories, each at three to four thousand plus (and I suspect that a bunch clocked in at five), in the space of a week, and commenting on each, is just one of those things people were not meant to do.)

As a teacher, I know how much that really does suck.

However, I assume that each story was different.

I correct the same 12 algebra problems or the same 8 history questions each night. For five different classes. For an entire school year.

It's a wonder I haven't snapped yet.
