Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

Feeling Cha-Cha

My British stylist doesn't even know what a Cha-Cha is, but man does he know hair.

Three years after we first met, he finally understands the nuances of me and my hair. When I sat down today he said, 'are we doing the same thing?' Yes I smiled, big sexy hair.

Just wanted to operationalize some terminology, because it seems no matter who the stylist is- they get it. Don't ask me what they conjure up when they hear 'big sexy hair,' but it is friend tested and approved. That phrase universally means serious Cha-Cha hair.

Besides my anti-frumpy campaign, today I found out...
  • I was accepted to present at a national conference.
  • The Chicana professor I had been hoping would join my dissertation committee, did.
  • That the city is like Pandora's box, open it a little and beware: Lesson from last night!
  • That posting up multiple copies of 'My Dissertation Time,' calendars printed on green paper and created in google freeware do help.
  • That it is going to be a long 72hours if I am going to make the deadline set by Dissertation Calculator for this week, a very cool tool- look it up online if you need one!

So here I am with my Cha-Cha hair staring at the green calendar in front of me. At another point in my life I would have considered it a waste, of a very good hair day.
