outlines and desks

last night, i saw my digital clock strike 2 AM as i fervently finished my 4-page research paper outline because i had a meeting with the professor about my paper/outline at the luxuriously late time of 8-freakin-30 AM. 

did she read anything past my thesis at the top of page 1? 
instead of reading all my hard work's evidence, she told me to start over (in scholarly terms, like "perhaps you should consider a free-write, letting the critic in you be silenced so that your ideas can flow and you can find the direction you need to take your paper...")

despite this completely discouraging meeting, i found some redemption in organizing my desk, which had clearly been neglected for 3 weeks. 



so, what was your monday like?
