but so Michael pointed out that Levinas and Deleuze could pull me into a morass from which I might never emerge unless I do some work on later chapters first so that I know how to be selective in what I do with them. this might be true. unfortunately I have become a linear writer when it comes to academic stuff so I really want to start at the beginning and end at the end. I never used to write this way. It is either the testosterone or a compulsion leftover from studying for my exams.
today's question is of course whether to do work at all and if so whether to grade papers at all but you can probably guess that I will be putting off the paper grading for as long as possible. my TA won't be done with hers before Monday so I have some time. I will be crying to myself come Sunday.
I want to go shopping. I worked hard this semester. I deserve a present. bigger than a burrito.
