starting off behind

I find myself, once again, in a position of being behind on my assignments before i knew the work had begun.

Teachers will do this. “As you see from the syllabus, this first class is when we will discuss the final chapter of Moby Dick. You all read it, right?”

No. No I didn’t realize I would be expected to handle this work before I knew I had been given the job.

But I’m excited. I have a lot to do, and not nearly enough time to do it all right. I guess I”ll have to do it the way i do it and hope it will be good enough.
