I'm a Pretty Surly Person

Side note: I'm in Scotland right now! But I was a very industrious blogger who pre-drafted all my posts for while I'm away so the blog will continue like I'm not even gone. Anyways, back to the actual post.

Every year when new graduate students enter university in the fall, my office organizes into teams of three and goes and presents to the new students about what services we offer for them and the advocacy work we do on their behalf. It’s great and high energy and I genuinely love it…but then there those days when we do 15+ such presentations in a day and, even just for a few moments, I’m so not feeling it anymore. And that was exactly when these photos were snapped. It’s basically me at my surly best!

Oh my - fifteen presentations in one day? I'd be ready to kill. But then again, I am severely lacking patience ;) Hope you're having a wonderful time in Scotland!

Those are some dagger eyes! I'd probably be feeling that way after needing to be high-energy for over a dozen presentations.

I'm definitely impressed with your vacation prep - getting all your scholarly work and blogging done before take off? Amazing. Hope you are enjoying every completely relaxing moment of your trip!

I absolutely love the texture of that top! And ohh university presentations, you're allowed to have a bit of angst to you. Which university are you with? I tried to figure it out based on the bricks in the background, but I can't. Ha.
