Beginning to feel overwhelmed by my workload. I have a research only role, so I cannot fathom how people manage to do this job _and_ teach as a lecturer.

@graymalkin If you ever find out, let me know!

Less unseriously, I think the answers are some selection of {teach badly, research by 'manage only', research in big collabs, live in a permanent 'manic kamikaze swan' state}.

@stephenrkell it’s mentally exhausting. I’m juggling finalising a paper resubmission, starting a new collaboration, exploring a new paper with an existing collaborator, helping with a large grant application, trying to sort out a talk, co-organising a workshop, and will soon need to start my new investigator award too. If I had teaching to boot I think I’d buckle under the pressure!
