Today was my first day of Spring Semester 2012. I am teaching 2 sections of Effective Speaking. One on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11-12:15 and the other on Fridays from 11-1:50. I will admit, that I get really excited for the first day of class and have trouble sleeping. To me, it represents a blank slate and a world of possibilities. I always have high hopes for the semester in the first few weeks.
Today, I needed an outfit that would convey authority and personality. This outfit is tried and true, see here. That can be viewed as both a positive and a negative. This outfit is very safe– there is minimal accessorizing going on. But, I need to give them something safe in order to start to get to know me. As the semester goes on, I will take more liberties with my outfits. But, dressing for the occasion is an important concept.
It was quite warm out today for a Winter day in the NE. I heard it got up to about 50 degrees or so. None-the-less, it was rainy and windy this morning. Here I am bundled up and ready to tromp through puddles on my way to campus!
I can’t wait for Thursday– I already have a few outfits in mind! Stop by to see what I wear the next time I teach and my second “first day” of the Spring Semester 2012.
