I used up most of my brain power today working in the writing center at school. We’re getting to the end of the semester and so from 4-8 pm today I sat in a chair as an array of students plopped down in the seat across from me and handed me things to read. I read, edited, commented, corrected and advised. As soon as one person thanked me for my work, another one would settle in the chair and hand over their paper. I believe I read something in the neighborhood of 60 typewritten, double-spaced papers today. It was a lot. There was a moment, around 7 pm, when the words all started swimming together and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to continue. But I gathered my wits (at least what was left of them) and kept on going.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take my worn out brain to bed.
