      Well, I’ve been trying to work out the organization of this paper, and when I struggle with organization I tend to feel like each bad attempt is me trying to make my ideas stupider than they really are. But then when I find the right organization, I feel less stupid. I’m feeling less stupid tonight. So that’s it.

      Although I’ve certainly thought of it before in relation to students. 🙂
