A Little Self-Aggrandizement Never Hurt No One

Today I received the following comment on my Facebook page:

“Truth be told, Mikel, during my second year you inspired me when I was going through one of the worst times in my life. Your passion for academia is only exceeded by how accessible you are to your students. I always made a point NOT to skip your lectures or seminars because I was afraid I would miss out on something.

I have always been something of an underachiever but when I was taught by lecturers such as yourself, I discovered my grades were much higher than I would ever have expected.

So thanks for that. ;-)”

Now, apart from being beautiful and moving (not to mention exceptionally flattering), I think getting comments like that should be all of our goals. This is why we got into this game in the first place, isn’t it? Well, that *and* to watch movies all day!

Thanks Scott – that post means a lot to me!
