November is the cruelest month (and yes, I know that’s callous). If you’re involved in any realm of academia, this is a fact you already know. November is the month you constantly drop the ball because you’re juggling so many items–at least one of them a chainsaw. Then suddenly it’s December, when all the things you were supposed to have done are due and you’re scrambling to figure out to make all the undone things of October and November happen in two weeks or less. Woof.
What I’m saying is, readers, that I know I owe you all sorts posts. Some of them are even mostly written! Alas, you won’t see them until this semester is over and maybe a week after that. To tide you over, here are some photos of my annual Thanksgiving dinner (14 mostly graduate students in a one bedroom apartment–it’s my favorite challenge of the entire year), and a link to the podcasts I’m listening to in hopes of finding the brain power to push through the next two weeks.
Leila is a geoarchaeology PhD candidate who never expected to find herself in geology or in the Midwest. She holds an MS in geology, and a BA in anthropology. Her primary interests are thinking about past landscapes and the people who lived on them, outreach/informal education, statement jewelry, and perfumes no graduate student should own. Her favorite color is gold glitter and she is often the only woman at an airport bar.

Getting hooked on this, but feel bit of a fraud as way older and retired:
Just can’t let geology go! X
