A would-be medievalist holds forth on academia, teaching, gender politics, blogging, pop culture, critters, and whatever else comes her way.

Yes, this really is yet another blog by a disillusioned grad student. I sympathize, but that's just the way it has to be. For hints as to what my bizarre alias means, click here and here and, if needed, here and here. To get a sense of what I'm up to, feel free to check out the sections called "Toward a Wiseass Creed" and "Showings: Some Introductory Wiseassery" in my main blog's left-hand sidebar. Please be aware that spamming, harassing, or otherwise obnoxious comments will be deleted and traced.

Fear and Loathing in Grading

My avoidance of grading is entirely out of proportion to the enormity of the task, my ability to complete it, and my track record. While I still think it's good to keep a certain sense of "holy fear" while grading, I'm beginning to think my approach falls well into the realm of neurosis.

I really, really need to do something about this. Any suggestions?
