- I’m taking a class called “Social Identity, Health, and Illness” and we’ve been talking a lot about insecurity and how we are driven to hide our insecurities to appear as successful as everyone else seems to be and how those who appear successful are also insecure and how the things we do to our bodies (always?) come out of insecurity. And then this segued into a class about the erotic (i.e. human engagement) versus the pornographic (i.e. objectification). We haven’t talked very much about health and illness yet.
- I often experience the effects of the hormone that makes a writer hate what they’ve written, and it often prevents me from reading the things I’ve written and even from writing in the first place. I should let it sit until the next morning, or longer, more often. How else is one supposed to get better?
