Recently, a coworker suggested to the guidance department that I take on a student during my lunch, and being that I'm new, I was assigned this student for ten weeks (this is within my contract, so it's not an option for not do it).
That being said, I'm also a full-time graduate student at a school over an hour away.
Every time this particular coworker sees me, she tells me that I look exhausted or wants to know what's wrong.
What's the appropriate response to this?
I was actually feeling good today and then she said that and I tried to explain that I'm super busy and just don't get to sleep much but she then wanted to know why I didn't take summer classes, etc., etc.
Who is bothering you at work?
Unrelated (sort of) how long is your commute?
