Ugh. This is the worst part of the semester, in my opinion. With every syllabus I'm handed, I get one more stress pimple, I swear.
I know it's like this every semester, and every semester the workload ends up being manageable and I somehow find a way to get through it. But right now, the list of crap I have to do this semester looks insurmountable.
I just have to keep reminding myself that I always feel like this, and worrying about it isn't going to accomplish anything! Also, I have to remember that professors seem to enjoy spending the first week or two trying to weed out the weaklings!
