Good News

Which makes you weary

Sometimes in life,

You wait for something for so long

Anxiously thinking, what if…

And going through all what if nots…

That you become numb

And indifferent to the news

When it finally comes.

I got tenure today.

Do I feel relieved? – Yes.

Do I feel excited? – Not really.

Just exhausted and burned out.

Still 50 more final papers to grade

Before the deadline on Monday.

    Congratulations. But I hear this. There are also different types of news, and this type comes with a lot of work!

  • Now I'm conflicted if I should congratulate you. But what I will do os send you lots of love and hugs 🥰🥰🥰

    Well, congrats though burned out. I know the feeling well. I have had many moments like that, even here on Vocal. Expectations and reality do not blend well. Still, make it count.
