This week, I can't get these lyrics out of my mind. Mostly because Keith - our neighbor in the library carrel area - is always playing "All Because of You" by U2 pretty much every day in his nearby study space. (Not complaining - I like that song.) But also because I really connect with these lyrics in light of my (thus far) incompetent work on my comprehesive exam briefs:
"An intellectual tortoise
Racing with your bullet train"
In other words, comps is eating my lunch. But there's this dim light at the end of the tunnel... growing slightly brighter every day...
It just struck me that the next line in the song is something like, "Some people get squashed crossing the tracks." Hmm... I hope that I don't end up feeling like that part of the song really speaks to me!
