My horoscope this week

From the Onion:

After years of being an emotionless drone, you'll finally break down and cry this week, instantly rusting your metal hinges and joints.
I post this because there is a danger that it may happen this week... Being a teacher is tough! OK, it's not that bad, but sitting in meeting after meeting after meeting, during which I am inundated with new information, all while knowing that I have stacks of lesson plans and syllabi to write and stacks of boxes to unpack... I'm used to coming home after work and doing nothing! It's a bit overwhelming right now, but once the students start, and I start to settle in to a bit of normalcy, things will all be good. I complain, but when it boils down to it, I am a member of an amazing staff (which by all accounts, and by my limited experience, is one in a million) who will prove invaluable!

Long story short (too late, I know): Rough start. Things will get better, but not easier.

Heehee my onion horoscope says...The stars, in their infinite wisdom, indicate that you have something on your shirt. Also the stars indicate that you always fall for that one...I think your's is much more profound.
