Ugh, this hurts. My head hurts, my brain hurts, my eyeballs hurt. I can’t believe that I’ve been hacking away at this translation of the Plato’s Ion for 3 plus hours and I’ve only gotten as far as 16 lines. Pathetic doesn’t even begin to describe it. Humiliating is what I feel when I’m in class and those 3 plus hours turn up something that doesn’t even remotely sound like any language on this planet, much less Greek into English. And mindlessly thickheaded is what I feel like right now because no matter how much I struggle and try, I cannot make sense of what seems so simple to others.
Giving up is not an option.
Failing seems to be the only thing looming on the horizon.
