I just emailed my best friend saying that I wouldn’t be able to write tonight because I had to go to bed. Then I announced it to my wife who then said, “but you have to.” So here I am.
Today was a very off day for me. As a student, I want to believe that all the work I put into mastering whatever subject I’m taking i’s going to pay off somehow. Yet there is always going to be the one day you go to school and every single discussion is a miss of some sort.
For my discussion on Marx’s Materialism, I voiced my opinion on the separation of ideology and materialism. Before I spoke, everything made sense in my head. After, not so much. If you’ve ever seen the SNL sketch of Sarah Palin’s (Tina Fey) interview with Katie Couric, where she makes no sense whatsoever, well… that’s pretty much how I think I sounded today. If only I would have ended my whole speech with “Maverick,” then it would have been perfect.
Good thing the day is over.
Here’s the link to the SNL sketch in YouTube if you’re in for a laugh: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BE2gE-VVjBI
