Essays Out the Wazoo

What is wrong with me? Why do I keep assigning essays? I don't mind writing essays, if I have something to say, but you know what I don't like? Grading essays.

I have a stack of essays today from Sophomores. I still have half a stack of Junior essays. And those junior essays have another essay due in a week.

At this rate I'm going to be grading until well into Christmas.

And yet, it's all I can do not to play on the Interwebs or read my book. I even want to work on lesson plans. Why? Because ANYTHING is better than essay grading. Fellow teachers, am I right here? Or am I just a terrible teacher?

Wait. Maybe you shouldn't answer that after all.
