Hat Season

February 22, 2015

One of my professors always likes to remind us of the many “hats” we students wear.

Of course, there is the “student” hat—the graduate student hat. When we wear this hat, we are students at a university.

There is the “teacher” hat—the hat we wear when we go out on placements to our elementary schools and teach for a full month.

There is the “researcher” hat—the hat that is never taken off but is worn underneath the other hats at all times… because, of course, observations made during waking moments goes into the field notes.

Then there are those other hats: the “sister” hat, the “daughter” hat, the “best friend” hat, the “girl that guy is dating” hat, the… blah blah blah blah blah blah blah hats x 100 hats!

I’m tired.

Don’t get me wrong, I like all of my hats. In fact, I love all of my hats. And I love that I have so many hats.

You see, the problem isn’t the number of hats that I have. I mean, we all have so many hats.

It’s just… I wish I didn’t have to change hats so often.

But I guess that’s life for ya: there’s always some element of change.

And the thing that triggered this post…. My research proposal was accepted to the Dean’s Graduate Conference at my school! I’ll be presenting in 13 days. Oh my magic stars…. How will I ever manage with all this hat-changing?

But… challenge accepted!
