The Questions That Plague Me

Who knew that writing a bio for your fellow-students at graduate school would be so exhausting?

We're all "distance learners," so in my opinion, this first introduction is rather important. I mean, I've got this fake persona to create, and it's so hard finding the balance between "outlandish" and "too humble."

Of course, I'm kidding.

But really. How "real" should I be? I want to write like I write, but would that be right? On the right, there is objective truth, but then what is left on the left? I fear there is only frilly fluff.

And these are all "academia" people and all that jazz.

...Not interested in being boring.

But no one probably cares anyway.

I was thinking about words like "wanderlust," "whithersoever," and "whilst," and quite frankly, those words seem appropriate to me. Should I let my true self shine through? Or should I hide behind a facade of boring normalcy.

These questions plague me.

I wonder what it will be like to do real work?

For this paper, write how you speak - no matter how weird that might seem to others! :)

Using just the right tone for distance education is tricky! My best advice is to trust your intuition - and you have lots o' that, chicky!

Coming from a person who has to sit with their peers every week, just impress the professor. Students just try to sound smarter than the others and it gets old, while your professor gives you grades! :)

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.

You wrote "Who knew that writing a bio for your fellow-students at graduate school would be so exhausting?
We're all "distance learners," so in my opinion, this first introduction is rather important." then described all the opposing thoughts that came to you.

So, as one who had to do this twice now, I'm intrigued...

"What Did you write?"

(Came here via the [Next Blog] button too.)
