slouching toward the communal kettle

Against my better judgment I returned to work today, and it wasn’t that bad. Mason is helping me keep perspective; he’s dreadfully ill and spent most of the day shivering. I’m okay to teach but I’m finding it hard to keep focus when I’m supposed to be marking.

This whole marking thing is getting dire; I may have to lock myself into the shed this weekend, just so that I can whittle away at my big crate of marking without distractions like human interaction or meals. Either that or pull myself together at work. I know what I’d prefer.

It’s weird: last year I spent so much time avoiding everyone that I got tonnes done. This year they seek me out to share sensitive news, so I’m less inclined to hermit with my marking. A good thing?
