Motivational Movie Monday: TV Professors

Happy 1st Day of School (for my students + others out there)!

As I’ve been ready for the fall term since this past spring ~ when I revamped my syllabus, & my wardrobe has been planned for awhile now ~ I’ve happily hitched myself to my dissertation, so I’m challenged with breaking away from my “spouse“!

Of course, I’ve also played my collection of movies & shows in the background + to motivate yours truly the teacher

My 2 favorite sitcoms of all time:

Friends & HIMYM

I actually share common careers with my least favorite main characters from both:

  • Dr. Ross Gellar from Friends
  • Ted Mosby from HIMYM

We 3 all teach at the college level!

 Dr. Ross Geller

That’s basically the extent of it. Although their 2nd best friends/players are the ones who I favor the most (as characters & the actors who played them) ~ I’m not like either 1 of them

 Joey Tribbiani

  • Joey Tribbiani from Friends (who “doesn’t share food”* ~ but apparently didn’t mind sharing his women ~ I also watched his name-titled spin-off to keep me entertained during graduate school a decade ago that co-starred this chick from The Sopranos as his big sis)
  • Barney Stinson from HIMYM (who can resist this tailor-made “awesome” * “legen-wait for it-dary” * “Suit up!” * “Challenge accepted!” + author of The Bro CodeThe Playbook ~ both of which I have as audiobooks on iTunes)

How about you? Which character(s) do you admire the most? Who remind you of yourselves?

Are you a Ross/Ted (since they’re similar)?

  • Do you tend to correct people on their grammar or their pronunciation of certain words?
  • Do you go out of your way to impress a woman of man (depending on which way you swing)?
  • If YES to the above, have you worn something outrageous to impress said woman or man? (Think: Ross‘ leather pants that he tried to remove with powder & his Casper the Friendly Ghostscary white teeth or Ted‘s red boots that were featured on his ex-fiancé’s baby’s daddy-turned boyfriend-then husband’s movie, The Wedding Bride)

No offense, but I wouldn’t want to be that guy ~ the one who is nit-picky about people’s grammar. However, I must be when I grade or copy edit (just not as much in my personal relationships)!

 HIMYM DVDs 

Are you a Joey or a Barney?

  • Do you scheme to score your latest conquest?
  • Are you clever (like Barney), or clueless (like Joey)?

*Speaking of Joey not sharing food, here’s a fave food parody from the Fung Bros ~ who film on all things Asian ~ that was released exactly 1 year ago on my birthday

Stats Cat

Is having my stats cat on my grad gear bad luck? I didn’t ask for it… She just jumped on before I tried it on!

Summer☼ ~ when Shifts & Skaters are in season!

Angel Annie

Leave it to this Angel Annie to always come throughall over the place!

Now that I’ve received {drum roll please} …

2 lessons that I teach & practice: (1) Visualization ~ Walking across the stage (2) Self-Fulfilling Prophecy ~ Taking the steps toward reaching this goal

… my doctorate graduation regalia …

Dr. D

Business in the front … Party in the back!

… and accompanying dresses (including the one for my dissertation defense), these are my pieces that I plan to feature in my doctoral grad announcement photos in solid shades that I ♥adore♥:

IMG_9011


Shift Dress (more forgiving / less flattering straight silhouette) in Coral (to suit my stylist Dr. Garza‘s taste): Spaghetti Strap Slip underneath Crocheted Lace Overlay * Skater Dress (more figure-framing A-line short skirt) in Mint (close enough to fulfill my Tiffany blue obsession): Strapless Slip layered under Sleeveless Scoopneck Sparkly Silver Lurex Fishnet

✌Both Dresses by Charlotte Russe

Now if only I can pair

Coral & Rose Gold

This coral shift dress pairs well with these rose gold chunky heels {by Forever  21}! #PrettyInPink

But I could make do with my own!

Minty Fresh

I can rock out this mint skater dress with these just-as-*sparkly* stiletto heels {by A’Gaci O’Shoes}! #MintyFresh

Since I plan to drive around for my photo shoot, I’ll wear these comfy gladiators in between venues!

Gladiators

Both dresses coordinate with the stones in these gladiator sandals ~ which mi Cuñada and I both picked out for ourselves together!

S also is for …

Suits!
