This week and the last two have consisted of 14 hour days of work, Monday through Friday. Most schools don’t let teachers 24 class hours, but it seems my university doesn’t see burnout as a real problem.

What really irks me is I just noticed that I’ve lost out on two job opportunities, with better benefits and facilities because I’ve been slaving away to keep up with the workload here. Neither were as big as writing for AMC, but they were decent possibilities. If I had more time, I’d elaborate, but I’ve got midterms to grade.
