Except that the philosophy professors have to write an assessment report on the major and get it turned in to the powers that be. And I'm on two different committees that have regular meetings and side work over the summer. And since salaries keep slipping further behind the norm, I signed up to teach a May term class in which we do a week's worth of work every day in order to cram a semester into three weeks. And I'm under contract to write a book by the end of next summer, and so need to make some good progress now to avoid 60 hour work weeks next year. And I've got a couple of new courses in the fall to prepare for. Yada yada yada.
Still, summer brings a change of pace. Just like I'd get pretty tired of living in a climate where the weather is always the same, I'd quickly become burned out in a job where the work is always the same. And I generally like the stuff I have to do. It is a blessing to be able to make a living doing something you enjoy.
