Graduate students are quite awkward and I think I am becoming more and more like them by the second. The long pauses, the glances to the right and the left, the grimace when no one is saying anything. I just say this because we had lunch with a speaker and I went through all of these gestures through out the hour of me not really saying anything. Which is painful for me, you all know that.
I tried for awhile to get the others to become more social and less toolish, but it isn't working. I think this means I must adapt to be more like them.
