Haven't smoked. But I have been just a bit bad about keeping in contact with fam, and slept through some classes, a bit stupid about getting help and confronting academic issues. One thing I swore to myself months ago was, unless it was studying (even then), never to spend entire days in my room. Do things, take initiative, don't while away time on worthless shit. Read, write, pray, think before you speak. Sleep. All of these aims have been precarious, but at least I have't been as bad as before. I think, reflecting on life, that 'progress' is an awful model of existence but if I were to use it, my line may be shaky but it's always going up. I think you're just a tad more than bad habits, Naomi.
It does tickle me a bit, but I'm glad to hear you're working. And honestly, if the professor is sincere (even I've been lately just floored by the amount of hard leftism, genuine or otherwise, in uni instructors) than I don't begrudge him for separating his work from his politics, to the extent we can. I don't think there's ethical consumption (or production) under capitalism, and difficult to earn your wages "radically". A fellow has to eat.
