Friday Afternoon Confessional: The Two SourcesI confess that I continue to be disappointed in my progress on exams, even though, realistically speaking, I'm doing fine. I confess that for the first time in a while, my worry about insufficient progress is actively hurting further progress -- I thought I'd finally figured out how to prevent that vicious cycle, but apparently not. I confess that, at the very least, I finished my Greek textbook. I further confess that, disturbingly enough, I enjoy reading reference grammars.
I confess that I don't even want to know what's going on in Iraq at this point. Literally no matter what happens, for me it's going to be evidence that we need to get out. Is national reconciliation happening? Great -- let's leave. Is a civil war happening? Great -- let's get out and let them have at it. At this point, the Iraq War is like discovering that you've accidentally married your sister -- there's only one option, and it's not "trying to make the marriage work."
I confess that this dating site (via Unfogged) may be the cure for all my complaints about online dating.
