I know I shouldn't say it.

You know how everyone says you shouldn't complain about being busy, because by doing so, you just

1. imply that everyone else could not possibly be as busy as you are, and
2. also might start a war about who is, in point of fact, busier.

(me. obviously.)

But still: I am feeling frantic. I will not elaborate. I will just say, however, that in the next week, the following shall occur, with or without me, in my personal body, doing the events that the occurrences imply:

  • write a poem a day, because (a) National Poetry Month, and (b) priorities.
  • bind 400 chapbooks! with students!  (are you coming to this event? you totally should!)
  • meet with an unknown amount of students, because who knows if they will sign up? even if I beg them?
  • put in my travel forms GOSH
  • work out loads of times, because (a) working out makes me feel better, thus (b) sanity, or what passes for it
  • teach a Publication Center workshop because way back when we planned the schedule it seemed like a good idea to do this the week before the chapbook launch hell YES
  • take just a few more things to Print Services, and beg them to print them immediately
  • catch up on all the things that I left to their own devices while I gallivanted away to Houston and then to Cedar City on academic and literary jaunts, huzzah!
  • teach the Publication Studies class, whatevs
  • defend America, aka all the department curriculum proposals before the General Education Committee, good LORD
  • go and pick up my Costco membership that has been waiting literally for months so I can
  • buy refreshments for the event
  • and other administrative issues too banal, frustrating, and so forth to elaborate BUT I COULD ELABORATE, HOLY HELL I COULD
Etcetera.

Not complaining though, not one bit.

I'm just going to say, though, that I have mostly been keeping up with Poem A Day for National Poetry Month (the cruelest month). And I'm gonna brag about it here.
