The Thrill of Victory
Much of our failure to understand human nature arises from neglect of the need to have our faculties excited and our lives thereby enhanced. The human animal cannot be itself without this exciting enhancement. Excitement is not merely good, it is indispensable to a proper human life.
— Lancelot Law Whyte
Have you ever really tried to sustain this type of effort?

Tuesday’s Survey: Message received. Vids on the way (when I find the time).
Grades: Speak with me (or use the Contact Page—see Week 12 Grades) before the 12 week progress report if you believe your grade should be raised.
