Sigh. I need chocolate.
I do not want to become cynical. It is better to be a fool and love a sham than to be jaded and despise a holy man. My bright-eyed students wearing their hijabs have far more beauty in them than my snarking attempt-to-be-urbane lectures. O God I hate Academia, I hate what I am becoming. May God judge us all and carry the heartbroken idealistic children in His arms. May they hear the beating of his heart. To them belong the Kingdom of God.
