tagged by @tenuredphdstudent 

Name: Rebecca
Nickname: Rebs
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Gender: F
Current Time: 10 AM
Average hours of sleep: 9. Sleep forever!
Last thing googled: An article for my queer theory lit review. Which is getting so long because I love it. 
Current number of followers: 40ish. Lil baby blog.
Dream job: Professor. Crossing all fingers and toes. And writing like a mad woman.
Things I post: Clothes. I may have to write 6 papers in the next 3 weeks but damn if I won’t look good doing it. 
Why I chose my username: Because I’ve been thinking and having a lot of conversations with people about how grad students dress. And, because I and many people I know went to the internet before they started grad school looking for advice about what to wear. And because I don’t like traditional business clothes so I’m still figuring out how to look like myself and still feel professional.

Came back from the national conference last night and deliriously taught class today, which devolved into me telling my students to photoshop the head of a famous theorist on to the body of a prairie dog and long story short I had a good draft of that image in my inbox five minutes after class.
Anyway here is what I wore to a conference mixer. I think people usually stay in business clothes for these but I swapped my pumps out for boots so that I would be ready to go out after.
