but so I brought work with me and don't feel like actually opening any of the books but I'm here and the office is ugly and there is only so much online stalling I can do so I don't know. maybe I'll just go back home. am a little soured on school today but I must not lose sight of the distinction between school and my work. if they don't want to pay me to write I'll just write anyway and show them.
I guess it is a little tantrum-y of me to protest not receiving money while in school but I'm of the opinion that higher education should be funded to the point that we all get paid for learning. at the very least there needs to be enough money so that students can find teaching work and/or fellowships. what good does it do to create a class of indebted scholars?
i have to start grading papers tomorrow. life sucks.
