We are at the point where every task I complete I need to psych myself up for it and be like, "it's not even that bad!" Which is true; I do not actually mind reading or writing feedback on student work, in principle. Or I wouldn't were I not SUBLIMATING INTO THE ATMOSPHERE due to lack of energy/willpower to maintain structural integrity.
The problem with this reassuring phrase/truth, however, is that I am incapable of not hearing it in, you know, Dean's voice.
So you see the problem here. XDDD HAAAAALP.
