As much as I love my new home, it’s hard being the new person at every meeting – watching everyone form their opinion of you. So, I’ve decided to take control of the situation and give myself a new persona. A nickname really, but a persona sounds so much cooler. I considered many alternatives. I have a colleague who is known as The Dragonlady of New Mexico, a really excellent persona. Too bad it’s already taken.
After much thought I’ve decided my new persona is… Biggie Rat.
“Oh no, I’ve got a meeting with Biggie Rat later today!”
“Have you started the new problem set for Biggie Rat’s class yet? It’s really hard.”
“Watch out for Biggie Rat!”
As in, next year the backs of the t-shirts will say:
“Biggie Rat Blinded Me With Science.”
