Intense workloads and chronic conditions

Student working on a laptop

The blog has been a little quiet over the past few months.  This semester I am working between two different colleges.  I am teaching multiple classes to a diverse range of students.

One of the colleges that I work at has finals next week.  In two weeks my course load will be much lighter than before.  That will be good because the stress is getting a little high and I feel exhausted.   Some days I come home and go to sleep right away.

I already have some classes reserved for me for Fall 2015.  That has relieved some of the stress.  However, I would have the same problem of working multiple part-time jobs with no benefits and no personal life.

Unfortunately, I don’t know if I’m going to get a summer class yet.  This was an issue last year (see summer employment), and I hope it doesn’t become an issue again.  I am already talking to people to see if they need a math professor over the summer.   I’m hoping because I’m being more proactive this year will lead to better results.

In the little free time that I do have, I have been job searching and making more attempts to network.  I will update you on my progress in another blog post.
