NaNoWriMo 26

One of the most heartbreaking things I seem called to witness is a student’s hustle overcompensate him or her right out of an actual education. To survive, many of us have learned to enact a modified Uncle Tom where conformity or adaptation looks like confident posturing and competent word use while the reality of mastery of either competence or confidence slips further and further from one’s grasp. You want to know the paradox? Change is what one seeks yet it is the very thing one has been forced to resist at one’s peril all this while. So now, it is difficult to determine what requests for integration and what requests for assimilation serve one’s ultimate purposes and therefore should be accepted.
