This past week has been jam-packed with way too much to do. Necessary things. Things I simply cannot ignore. I'm leaving today for the CSC in Nashville, and this is all the stuff I had to get done in the last week:
1. Write the paper that I'm presenting at the CSC
2. Read Gilead because Marilynne Robinson will be a plenary speaker
3. Make minor corrections to my dissertation, proofread the Works Cited page (again), and get the finished version back to my director
4. Prepare to teach a class on "Images of Women in Literature," which I taught on Friday afternoon
5. Prepare for Honors Symposium.
6. Re-read Frankenstein before I teach it at Honors Symposium.
7. Shop for and prepare a nice Father's Day meal
8. Start teaching Honors Symposium on Monday
9. Download and fill out a bunch of graduation-related paperwork, drive to Ole Miss and run around campus, handing in one form here, picking something up there, taking it to another office on the other side of campus, paying fees, etc., and jumping through all necessary hoops prior to the defense, then driving home (same day)
10. Submit an essay for a critical edition of Mansfield Park
11. Pack for the CSC
That doesn't even count things like laundry. Boy, I'm tired.
