I went to Tuesday night class last night. Partygirl called me just as I was finishing up one thing and getting readyto plunge into another, she asked if I wanted to go, and I just said, “Yes.” Like a person with a normal life.

The speaker talked about people who let their lives be ruled by feelings, fear, or fatalism. Big mistakes.

Then I came home and graded papers, and then got up before dawn to grade some more papers, and now I must rush to get to class. Directly after class I have a phone interview, which I guess I’ll have to conduct in the classroom. Then a bunch of deadlines.

At least it’s not fear, feelings, or fatalism.
