No wonder you feel burnt out. I've done journalism and newspaper but not
the same years! Also, when you are having trouble with computers, try
seeing if your printer can do "sticky copy" for you for paste up. THat's
how we did it before getting computer access. It could take the stress
off. Sometimes we have to revert to the old fashioned methods, just like
cutting an oversize mat with a Dexter and a ruler rather than a mat
cutter!

Check and see if you are doing too much extra stuff. I always find that
it's the extra paperwork, the extra committee, etc. that piles on the
stuff.

Also, sometimes you just have to drop everything and go to a movie! or
something.( Thursday, after oging to the doctor, fixing my husbands lamp
by taking it off the wall and running to the Busy beaver and using my
charm to get the asst manager to fix it (cost of part 2.99) Did dinner for
us, mopped floors, three bags of leaves and at 6:30 called my next door
neighbor to see if she wanted to go to a movie. At 7 am we were on our way
to the movie to see Double jeopardy. Since I rarely go to a movie, it was
a treat!

Publications are the ultimate stress, I think.Can you only teach art?
Isn't journalism in the English dept. ?

Now, no baking of cookies, etc. for the holidays.

Laugh as much as I taught Art classes. If possible, see if your
printer
the equivalent of using a Dexter and a ruler to cut an oversized mat that
won't fit in a Logan or other mat
