It’s Summer! Reflect, Recharge, Recognize and Reignite Your Goals

Share on Social Media

Welcome to June and, for some of you, the beginning of summer break! As we step into this new month, let’s take a moment to recognize the significance of June 19, Juneteenth—a vital celebration of freedom and resilience in Black history. It’s a reminder of how far we’ve come and how much further we can go together.

For those of you off for the summer, I hope you enjoy every moment. Bask in the sun, relax, and recharge. But remember to carve out a little time to review your notes and keep your mind fresh. A little effort now can make a big difference when classes resume.

Graduate students, I see you working hard without a summer break. It’s crucial to take short breaks, breathe, and rejuvenate. Self-care is essential. Remember why you started this journey and keep believing in yourself. You’re doing incredible work, and taking care of your well-being will help you go the distance.

For anyone contemplating going back to school, let me tell you—if it’s something you’ve always wanted or feel a desire to do, go for it. Time will pass regardless. Two years from now will be two years from now, whether you take the leap or not. The real question is, what will you be saying to yourself in two years if you don’t?

Here’s to a fantastic summer! Embrace each moment, take care of yourselves, and keep striving towards your goals.
