Oh, I love my colleagues. There is this bunch of paperwork that I need to do, which is so confusing that one practically needs to get another PhD to understand how it needs to be filled out. The idea that I have to do this paperwork has been poisoning my entire day. I've been sitting here in a vile mood, contemplating the sad need to do the stupid paperwork and feeling sorry for myself.
And then a kind colleague came by and suggested that we all gather on Wednesday and do the paperwork together. Oh, happiness! Oh, joy! All that bad stuff I said about communities? Forget it. I am now a joyful convert to the idea of a community that shields one from the sad necessity of doing this scary paperwork on one's own.
