Happy National Dessert Day!

Carrot Cake topped w/Cream Cheese & Pecans

C is for … Carrot Cake * Cream Cheese * Chopped Pecans

My peers who’ve preceded me in finishing their doctor of philosophy degrees can agree:

Cleaner and clearer are better.

That means: clean desks and clear minds

Plus clean PowerPoints to clear our minds!

Two of my esteemed classmates who graduated a few years ago and whose guidance I sought for my paper and slideshow both explicitly pointed out that I most certainly must cut back

Down to 120-140 slides, no more than 150!

As the ☼summer☼ drew to a close ~ during my most recent hurdle (that lasted four months as we entered fall term), my statistics ~ I already reached 300+ slides and reached 300+ pages of my dissertation

Yet that’s way too many to fit into a two-hour presentation (including professors‘ Q&A) ~ so I’ve reduced down to almost ½ so far!

Declutter Dissertation

This slide: an indicator that I measured a TON of stats! I ended up taking out 50+ slides last night … Shooting to eliminate more. Next issue: making sure that the fewer slides that I look less cluttered!

Just as I’ve had to minimize my clutter-bug and shutter-bug ways, I’m also de-clutteringcleaning and clearing up my PowerPoint

That way, I can advance into the next round!

Public Speaking

And how it applies to the college courses that I teach and my own doctoral dissertation

Asia Cube

Flashback *Feline* Friday: My grad cat keeps me company through this cube at my desk! {Fun fotos taken when we lived in Cali then when I taught in the Valley}

Don’t y’all always like my alliteration?

Jones Soda

Don’t cat photos always make anything better? This from my sweaty swigs, ya dig?

A&A *Highlights* this Week:

  • Big Asia actually being my bed buddy from sleeping to waking up for the 1st time in 9 years (she usually sleeps at my feet or elsewhere)!
  • Vocal Annie playing copy cat with me by imitating (the greatest form of flattery) the pitch of my voice ~ another element that I teach in speech!

Therefore, Lil’ Ann‘s the mockingcat!
