I have a paper due tonight, and it occurred to me that I'm writing it backwards. Meaning I wrote my outline forwards, but when it comes to fleshing it out in actual composition. . . I wrote the conclusion first, and I'm flipping each page of the outline forward as I'm completing it. This is far from the first time I've found myself working backwards on a project. I also do some things left-handed (I'm a righty) but I've chalked that up to my left-handed mom's influence.

Is it narcissistic to be fascinated by how my own brain works? Or is it just one more reason to ask myself why it took me so long to figure out I should get involved in teaching?
