If I didn’t need to focus tonight, I’d take a Xanax. I’m in freak-out mode.

I spoke to my niece earlier, and she asked me if I could come over “for a couples” and play. I told her that I’d love to, but I have to work. She was persistent, asking if I had to work tonight, tomorrow morning, and so on, and I ended up in tears. I would love to just play, and not worry about grading, failing students, or my Exam.

Let me vent for a moment. Here are the things giving me angst:
1. My Exam. All I have to do is study (memorize around 15 poems), and just take the test on Friday. And then defend it sometime next week. I’m terrified of failing.
2. Grading. For some reason, students expect A’s, but aren’t willing to put forth the effort. And they get angry with me when I give them the grade they earned.
3. Grass. My lawn is at least ankle high. Today is the last sunny day (per the forecast) for about a week. But I don’t have time to mow today.
4. I am in physical pain, and I’m going to have to suck it up and call a doctor soon.

OK…my 10 minute break is up.
