Finding Inspiration

While we all come to graduate school “bright-eyed and bushy-tailed”,it can be easy to get overwhelmed. We get caught up in our work and may even lose sight of the the reason we decided to pursue a graduate degree. It is very important to find ways to feed your passion outside of school. For me, this includes volunteering and creative writing. While neither of these are directly related to my coursework, they feed my passions and bring me back to reality. Other grounding activities i’ve indulged in include include recording gratitude and making what I call “passion goals”. Some of my passion goals are to read 4 books this year (not for class) and to do at least one craft every month. There are plenty of self-care activities out there that can support your passions (or even help you discover more!) 


Stay Positive!
