Guest Blogger James Gray This Weekend And My First Podcast Appearance (Wednesday 3/16)

Hey everyone, I’m still trying to rest up so that I can beat this illness, and so I have asked good friend of Camels With Hammers, our popular frequent commenter James Gray (of the blog Ethical Realism) to fill in for me this weekend.

Sick

I’ve been lethargic from sickness since Saturday and so I have had no energy for blogging and have felt the need to spend as much of my energy as possible recuperating so that I can be well for my students as soon as possible.

Sometimes [Read More...]

Why Free Time Should Not Be Labeled “Optional”

Lily reflects on her failures to reflect this summer: Whenever I’m extremely busy, free time is always the first thing to go.
