There’s a recurrent theme in my inbox as another semester is near the end. (And yes, I do use that wooden desk Gmail theme. Let a man keep his kitschy customizations.)

I have been intending to write this essay for months. Why am I finally doing it? Because I finally found some uncommitted time? Wrong. I have papers to grade, a grant proposal to review, drafts of dissertations to read.

John Perry’s How to Procrastinate and Still Get Things Done looks like a good article on the ‘active procrastination’ I wrote about yesterday. True to form, I’ll read it later.
