What I'm doing; what I want to be doing.

What I'm doing; what I want to be doing:

1) Grading papers, dealing with work-related things, scootering to work in the rain. 2) Revising my novel, working on song lyrics for a short album, writing the script for an indie movie, writing a new story, starting the next novel.

Guess which is which? Bursting with creativity but must fulfill crazy-busy Day Jobbe duties even though the top-level administration is considering cutting my position. Why, exactly, am I fighting for this?

Feh on being a grown-up.
