I’ve arrived! Well, two days ago, but this is one of the few times I haven’t been attending papers and panels and events, and had the chance to do a dress rehearsal of my paper. While in the hammock. Under the lovely Florida sun (this is only partially facetious; I managed to buy a pair of sunglasses so my antagonistic relationship with sunlight is a little less than usual).
So far, it’s been a blast and extraordinarily educational. I’m less than a neophyte academic, so I have much to learn (but I’m learning! I think…).
Anyway, have pictures of palm trees! And green! Which is so very, very not what Chicago looks like right now. (Also, my phone camera is old and terrible, and I’m not much of a photographer, so the quality is so-so)
