March is my hell month. Like now, I have piles of papers and plates to check, curriculum review to finish, grades to compute, etc. Talk about mega S-T-R-E-S-S.

To stay sane, I always remind myself that beyond this fire-and-brimstone month are the heavenly summer months of April and May. Two lazy months with pay. NO students, papers, plates and gradesheets. Mmmmm! Heaven after hell. Ecstasy after agony. Play after work.
