I've only got 6 days left (2 actual teaching days) in the semester. I am looking forward to greater flexibility with my time and an opportunity to figure out how to rework my classes. Why is it that I have all the brilliant ideas during the semester, after the syllabus is finished, but never during the breaks? Well, I'm learning every year and I can say that I've burned enough pancakes on one class that I have it down pretty well (Blokey says that classes are like pancakes, you gotta burn a few 'til the turn out right. I don't know why I'm talking in Forrest Gump analogies).
Today, the second day of the Academichic Dress Your Best challenge, I'm highlighting my cheekbones, which make me look like my lovely mum. But really, I am celebrating those parts of my face that I've felt insecure about in the past, too. While my face is no classical study in symmetry, I've learned to like it's lopsided and funny bits too (like my large ears, which will keep getting bigger, and still won't accept earrings). I shied away from make up since I entered grad school (because academic ladies are generally make up free) but I think I can try to have some more fun with it once in a while. (Not this semester though, my hilarious students will be all "Yo, puh-fessah, why you look awll nice today?")
Hope everyone has a lovely Tuesday.
