My future, I hope, will be/ In the home of a brave and free male

As you may know, if you are stalking me and/or following me on Twitter¹, I went to Indianapolis for a conference last weekend. At the conference, I went to a session about why more females than males study abroad, and how this can influence study abroad marketing efforts. This session has been bothering me ever since, because the presenter had interviewed female study abroad students and had discovered that one reason a lot of females (at her university, anyway²) study abroad is that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do so. This is one thing that we try to point...

Try saying it out loud

I was just thinking that I would like to form an organization called Emerging Professionals in International Education and then be elected as head of this organization so that I could print up business cards that say: Chair, EPIE. *grooooooaaaaans*...

She's mighty, my tea

Dear People At Work, Please stop stealing my tea. It wouldn't bother me so much if there were one or two of you taking it in order to drink it on your own, but you tend to take the box, which is clearly marked with my initials and set it out whenever there's a presentation, offering it to millions of strangers. Oh, and while we're at it, Dear People Who Come to My Workplace, Please stop being so rigid and unmovable. You are never going to find an internship if you reject all of my suggestions for no apparent reason...

Will I be pretty? Will I be rich?

One of the questions I get all the time at work is, Is it competitive? When people are looking for study abroad programs or looking into programs like the State Department internship, they tend to ask this question, which never fails to surprise me. It never occurs to me to ask if something is competitive. Why do they want to know? Will they refrain from applying if they don't think they can get in, or do they just want to know what they're up against? Why do they need to know that? I just apply to things and figure I'll...

Venting @ work

This job would be a lot easier if everyone who came in would just shut up and let me tell them what to do. Get off your ass and walk down to the OIP yourself! Why do I have to bring you a flyer? That's not my job and you have to get your lazy self there eventually. You have limited options for getting to Cuba! Get over it. Go somewhere else or don't be so picky. Part of studying abroad is learning to adjust, so adjust already. If you study abroad with this rigid mindset, you're going to have...
