Hi everyone! I can only write a short post today. I'm traveling for the ASA (American Sociological Association) conference, in Las Vegas, NV. My time is limited and my internet connection is poor!
Anyway, I'm thoroughly enjoying my 2nd official "No Makeup Monday" while networking and presenting my own research at ASA. This is the largest and arguably most important professional conference of the year, so I was delighted to find that I feel GREAT sans-makeup. Sociologists rock. It occurred to me today that I feel more pressure to wear makeup when spending time with my students, than my colleagues. I need to give this more consideration in the coming weeks. Also - I decided to ditch my contact lenses for the day and wear my glasses. I'm consciously trying to channel Daria (remember her??) - a personal hero of mine, along with Miss Piggy! Both of these women (characters??) are bravely unapologetic about who they are. I have always found this to be inspiring.
As Miss Piggy has fabulously said, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye!"
