To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it.
- GK Chesterton
As many of you know, I am going on PELP (Planned Educational Leave P-something) in Spring'08. This was a difficult decision for me. I have held on desperately to school, perhaps too desperately, and I don't have a good reason why, and perhaps the resouces would be better spent on someone else. I'm told I am entitled to those resources, but entitlement to resources does not mean I should use them. Thus I've decided to go on PELP, but still go to classes. It is my hope that not actually being enrolled will free up time and energy for other things. What other things? Preparing for prelims, giving more talks, writing these posts, cooking, and I'm sure I'll find other things.
