(12:01 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Friday Afternoon Confessional: IndulgencesI confess that I got a new phone and might actually be in love with it. I confess that having used an ancient phone for so long has likely kept me from fully understanding its inadequacies. I confess that I signed far too long of a contract to get it for free (after mail-in rebate). I confess that the whole notion of a mail-in rebate is so transparently a rip-off that I can't believe people have put up with it for so long.
I confess that I have occasionally been staying out way too late recently, and weirdly, it almost always seems to happen when I'm out with one particular person.
I confess that I have begun a crash course in reading Italian, all so that I can read an Agamben book that will be available in French in a couple months. I confess that I am not enjoying reading the contemporary literature surrounding my dissertation project, though I am relieved to find that my initial intuition that my angle is unique has been borne out thus far.
I confess that in my quest to find adjunct teaching work, I got some wrong information and e-mailed my CV and cover letter to a retired professor who was reportedly on her deathbed.
