(12:01 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Tuesday Hatred: Strangely warmedI hate allergies. I hate it when allergies make the prospect of a casual stroll to enjoy the nice weather seem too exhausting to contemplate.
I hate having been such a spendthrift of late. I hate that I still don't have any teaching work for next fall. I hate how bad a lot of academics are about answering e-mail. I hate the many inexplicable delays that characterize academic life more generally.
I hate that several packages have yet to arrive: two books I ordered from Amazon, plus additional copies of my Zizek book.
I hate it when several figures from my past come back in rapid succession.
I hate it when people say "the surge" was a success -- and even more when those same people take that made-up success as evidence that we'd be stupid to leave.
And you should also love, if you have it in you.
