How are you? We’ve only just met, but I feel like this might be one of those friendships that’s a slow build. That’s alright though, as we’ve got all year to get to know each other.
For those PhD-ing, this year is the start of many things, and some of them may be terrifying and some of them may be exciting. Whatever comes, remember that you are doing a PhD and that is awesome.
For those who have finished, think of this as a good year to start the rest of your life. There’s nothing holding you back now. It’s all up to you, and wherever you want to go.
But above all, remember to be kind to yourself. I didn’t do nearly enough of that in 2015, and I’m going to resolve to do better this year.
