Seriously, how long does it take for my department to decide on the TA appointments for spring term? Call me crazy, but I thought that such decisions should be made, oh, I donít know, maybe before spring term starts.

Welcome to academia. Nothing gets done in a timely manner. I guess I should get used to it. But itís still inconsiderate, and surprisingly unprofessional. Most significantly, itís driving me crazy! I canít make plans, or tell my boss when I can work. I canít prepare if I donít know what class Iím assisting with. So Iím left feeling woefully unprepared.
