While I don't have nearly the load that Nick or Mike or Thomas have had, it's enough. I'm self-employed and on top of revenue-generating income, I have to deal with all kinds of administrative stuff that temps and "captive" employees don't. I think Jen has a sense of what I'm talking about. While the administrivia can be a bit annoying at times, I'm blessed to be self-employed and to have the opportunities I have. Were tings different, I wouldn't be able to take the measely three credits I get to take twice a year.
That said, I'm taking summers off, which means that you'll be subject to my insufferable opinions for at least the next three months.
Sorry to break it to you. Just offer it up.
