Just one thing

I have so much to post, but I have to finish two books (not read, finish, don’t worry) tonight and write a paper on them, so there’s only time to write down one very important thing I learned today that I want to be sure not to forget:

I must never let academia or academics determine my self-worth. I am so much greater than the sum of my papers, research, etc… or lack thereof.

Thanks to Margaret for helping me figure this out. 🙂

And thanks to Dana, Jennifer and Maggie for a wonderful evening. Now I’m content and mentally prepared to write my paper.

What a day. What a week. And it’s only Wednesday. More later.
