Grad student survival 101


We made it to March!!!!

Now that you have looked over your goals and are marching forward, I wanted to take this month to share some of the insights that I’ve gathered from my experiences as a grad student. For March, look for posts on grad student tips, time management, research, power point, and writing. Of course, these will be sprinkled with motivational quotes and reminders throughout.

This month, if you have not done so yet, I challenge you to cultivate your writing habit. For today, start with this:

The 10 minute freewrite challenge:
Starting today, write for 10 minutes. If you can’t think of something to write, then  write about why you got into grad school. Reflect on what you hope to accomplish, and maybe even (if it’s not too scary) what you see yourself doing when you get that PhD.

Happy Writing!

    I wonder what it is about March/April that makes it so tough to be in grad school. I need all of the motivational quotes I can at this time!!

    • I’m with you, there! Hang in there. Spring and summer are just around the corner. Hopefully, the load will let up a little bit for you so that you can get a breather!
