Likewise, my goal here has always been to make posts of value to the world. Things I'd like to read myself. Maybe I've failed, or maybe not; I hope I've succeeded at times, regardless of how many people ever read these words. (This may be the opposite of the narcissistic Facebook/Twitter model of what-I'm-doing right-now banality).
Anyway. I don't have time for value/content today. As I mentioned in post-131 , this is the end of the semester. I have to finish 75 essays by 4:00 PM tomorrow. "No ifs, ands, or buts", as we say. It's the last time I will see the students this semester, and some of them it's the last time I will ever see them. There is no possibility of delay.
I write this at 11:30 PM (Korea time). I have another plan from 9:30 AM to 1 PM tomorrow, so it's "down to the wire". The stack of essays sits there taunting me.
