no parallel here between politico-economic theory and the end of the semester crunch, but I do like putting it that way. it’s a bit pretentious.
This, however is more of a prayer to the wind / exhortation to myself.
Duane, you can do amazing things in short timespans. You’ve proven this almost every semester. Now you’re set up in a better spot for finishing than any of those other ten semesters. Don’t fuck this one up. You’ve got 270 hours, with only a few distractions. Please, please, I implore you, stay on track with this one. This is the final time you have to do this, make it count. To you there is only one goal right now, and at 6 pm May 11th you will have conquered. Please for once don’t let yourself down. Like Erik always says, “You are here to be magnificent.” Now go be that.
