on alter-egos..

all I want to do lately is have enough time to write up this one result. in fact this morning I woke up extra early to $\LaTeX$ a lemma and most of its proof, before having to start my day job of being. . well.. a "professor."


I didn't mean for it to come out that way, but there seems to me a sharp divide between the 'me' that teaches university maths and the me that does the research.. or tries to, anyway.

it's a little like how Batman has to play at being Bruce Wayne, if only to make sure that he can be whom he thinks he should be, for at least some of the time.
