The psuedo-professionalization of individuals and structures...

Why I feel unprepared to practice... behold my notes from a three-hour class:
In my defense, it was a discussion of images of oppressive structures...but mine includes not one, but TWO sea-monsters. Plus snails. On bicycles.

I have been meeting with all these grad students lately, and I re-realized (because I've known for a while, but it floats out of my consciousness) that if I had the opportunity to study one thing that seemed totally self-serving and isolationist, I'd study math. I wouldn't be good, but I would have a good time.

(Look, I don't even bother to know the freakin' date. This was last Friday.)
