Annual Review Brings Tedium

The tenure process requires assistant professors to submit an annual review of what they have done the past year. Even though I officially have been an assistant professor since Oct. 1, I am in the process of my annual review today.

Although it is interesting to reflect upon one's career, the process itself is extremely tedious. The first year is, of course, the most difficult because you have no template from which to work. And I am spending so much time on this annual review that I want to list it on next year's annual review as a major accomplishment.
