Friday Afternoon Confessional: Bachelor PartyI confess that my thread about Spitzer's high-class prostitute is kinda obnoxious. I confess that I feel like I've been obnoxious in social situations recently, though it's unclear to me if the other people involved feel the same way.
I confess that I continue to set unrealistic reading goals for myself with my exam prep. I hope it's not too unrealistic in aggregate, though, because I've just scheduled them for six weeks from now. I confess that the scheduling has been driven more by my desire for tidiness than by any kind of assessment of how much time I actually need to prepare -- I just want to get them done by the end of the semester.
I confess that William James's Varieties of Religious Experience is a cool book -- though I also confess that I didn't read all of his examples. I confess that I'm about to read Bergson's Creative Evolution, the first step down the path of becoming a radical Anthony-Smithian.
I confess that I'm glad that it's almost Easter, because I gave up dating for Lent and I'm really jonesing for an awkward conversation over drinks. It has been a huge money-saver, though. For instance, right now I actually have money. Plus, you know, the economic stimulus check is coming before too long.
