Medusa's losing it

Going up for tenure +
applying for 35 jobs +
teaching three jam-packed couress +
advising umpteen thousand majors +
writing umpteen hundred recommendations for students +
serving on multiple committees+
running a new lecture series+
writing a panel proposal for a major conference +
prepping for a friggin interview with the tenure committee (have you ever heard of such a thing? the 500-page binder wasn't enough?) +
a way overdue revise and resubmit gathering dust on my desk +
the collection I am editing

= An exhausted stress ball called me

Tell me it's going to be okay.
