We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.
-- Kurt Vonnegut
I remembered that quote from the beginning of my high school psychology course in eleventh grade. But I forgot that it was Vonnegut; I thought it was William James. A Google search remedied the error.
So if I pretend to be done with my code and my paper, and to feel bright and chipper in the face of another semester, will it take?
