Before my sabbatical can begin, I must:
— Attend three committee meetings.
— Have one meeting with a program administrator.
— Eat lunch with the dean.
— Go to two job talks.
— Grade sixteen literary interpretation final papers.
— Grade twenty new media final projects.
— Grade sixteen graduate term papers.
— Grade two senior theses.
— Revise a curricular document.
— Write two letters of recommendation.
— Pack and ship a semester’s worth of belongings.
I’ve got six days. Any bets on whether it all gets done?
