Sisyphus in a Skirt

La vie: You know the Greek myth about Sisyphus, who had to spend his eternity rolling a stone up a hill just to watch it roll back down? I think I’m beginning to understand his frustration. As soon as I get all of the planning, teaching, grading, emailing, and organizing done for one day, it’s time to go home so that I can wake up and do it all again the next. And quite frankly, my dears, I’m exhausted.

Yes, I do want some cheese with my whine. I’m sorry, that’s all I seem to do lately. Thank you for listening; I promise, this won’t be the place I always go to complain. I think I’m just putting a lot of pressure on myself to do well at this job, and make a good first impression on students and parents (whom I met last night!). And that nagging perfectionist in me just won’t give it a rest. But she’ll have to shut up sooner or later—this girl needs some sleep!
