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...

Back to School

Sort of...

Had a brief moment of vanity as I walked through the new university campus I am teaching a class on, sun was out, sunglasses on, just the right outfit for a short commute out of the city.

Then momentarily horrified I remembered I had trailing behind me a bag on wheels of sorts. A gift from a think tank event I had attended and perfect to stuff with the essentials; laptop, power-cord, agenda, clipboard, file folders, notepad, resource and textbooks. I decided to add my personal items and forgo the purse as well, sunglass case, wallet, lipgloss, water bottle, pen, pencil, highlighter, post its in various shapes, and binder clips...I know this because when I got home my roommates asked what was in the bag.

I stopped in the quad and called the one person I knew could coach me through this awkward moment- my best friend from 9th grade. Of course he couldn't find the time from his office job to take my call- that is besides the point. "I hope the students know I am faculty and not one of them! In my day I would not have been caught dead lugging this thing around."
