The Blackboard Jungle

days spent beating back the seeds of doubt

Apologies for the lag in posts here of late.

It's only when things go awry in one's personal life that I realise what boundless elasticity this job has. One or two incidences of difficult news, and I can block out the world by simply working harder.

The Sisyphean struggle can also be a boon. No limit to the needs of the students I teach here, and no limit to the depths of workaholism I can hide myself in.

That's pretty useful, at times.
