In Higher Ed, Motivational Monday, Politics, Pro-DiSPO, Public Interest, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Workin' Woman on 02/15/2016 at 06:00

Happy President’s Day!

Here’s a tribute to my personal favorite Commander-in-Chief, Ronald Reagan, whose 105th birthday would’ve been earlier this month ~ as well as to the Challenger Crew, whose crash took place just over three decades ago …

References to The Great Communicator:

Ronald Reagan

 R.I.P. ✌ also to my Lolo Tico (February 10, 1909-August 26, 1996) on his birthday and his 20th anniversary this year.

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?

Desk Cube

Flashback *Feline* Friday: Here are the other dimensions of my grad cat at my desk! {More Bay & el Valle}

Type of Presentation Description Dissertation
Informative Speech Sharing facts based on research Concept Proposal as Information Session for my Committee
Persuasive Speech Supporting opinions with research Proposal Defense to convince Committee; IRB request
Interview Asking and answering questions ~ which also involves the powers of persuasion Committee, Faculty and Public Defense ~ all for which I’m preparing to get into defense shape (also involved when I initially applied to my doctoral program, my final and comprehensive exams)
Special Occasion Speech  Celebrating an event Acknowledging my support system after successful full Defense ~ when I shoot to become Doctor
Cat Clip & Keroppi

With cat art as all the rage lately, I’ve been trendsetting since before then at my work zone! + #FrogFetish#Keroppi

PS also is for … Pet Smart ~ where I go for my catsentials!

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!
