How can I be coming back from a long weekend feeling exhausted and overwhelmed? I have a paper due on Thursday, that’s why. And I’m blocked.
I think it may be that I’m overthinking. (ya think?)
I don’t feel connected to the students (they’re all in another program and are friends already). The lecturer uses a “quasi-socrative” method and always argues the opposite side of a point. It makes the class kind of intimidating.
I don’t think he likes me. And that’s self-defeating. And I shouldn’t care. But I kind of do. I told him I wanted to start a twitter handle for the class and he said he didn’t want one because it would restrict free speech. When I asked him about the paper I’m writing he said something like “all the facts are there, I’m not going to tell you the answer.”
All that said, I Do like his class. The material is super-interesting and he is very organized and funny and the discussions are thought-provoking. I’m glad I’m taking it.
OK, productive procrastination is now over. Must Write Draft Of Paper Now.
Maybe if I just blogged the paper it would be easier…?
