This was my student who told me she made an extra thank you to me in her video presentation (which I do not grade so would not see). She thanked me for being an awesome professor and encouraging her through many tough times.
Warm all over...one never knows what kindnesses students are able to absorb when they are so stressed out.

I Sent a note back telling her how much I appreciated her acknowledgement...and then offered her more support after she graduates

I’m grateful for accepting my first travel assignment and the new opportunities and experiences that await me!
This contract will allow me to pay off a substantial amount of debt, the opportunity to work with a new population, and live closer to my best friend for the first time in seven years!

After nearly a year of negotiations with my research IRB I was notified today that I may proceed with my study. I've learned so much along the way, and my patience with the process has really grown.
This is a concrete marker that my PhD process is moving forward and that I will make it to completion.

I am grateful for all of the rain we've received the last couple of days. I hope and pray that the water went to all of the places it's needed most.
And, I'm grateful that today when I woke up the sun was shining, the sky was clear, blue.

I felt supported and confident in my abilities, and in hers.

I will forever be grateful for my students and parents.
I was not expecting as much gratitude from them as I have received.
On Saturday my rage got the better of me and I lashed out at someone who was undeserving. I have apologized and begun to make amends for my actions, but it does not clear me of having erupted in the first place. I am human, every now and then my emotions get the better of me. Whenever they do, I tend to feel emotionally low for days on end (until I feel that I can forgive myself for the damage I caused when I became mad). My students and parents have helped me feel less bad in a time where my mental state is not in the best shape.

I bought a high quality paleo salad for lunch. It was delicious. I paid too much but it was fun to enjoy and savor it regardless.
I felt special and well taken care of by myself.

I am so very grateful for A, my mom, my dad, Duncan, Erin, my doctor, and my 2 kitties for helping me stay positive, for supporting me, and loving and caring for me after I was in a major car accident last week.

He created an intimate 3-person social gathering in which I was finally able to be my whole self for the first time in a long time.
I’ve been feeling only allowed to be partly me in many gatherings lately, but at this one my whole self was welcome – complexities, ambiguities, and all.
