Spring: the season of renewal, rebirth, new life. The birds are singing and the weather is warmer. New green shoots are pushing through the earth after weeks of ice and snow.

My brain is awakening from a winter of fog.

It’s time to dig in my heels for the last five weeks of the semester. My second wind is kicking in.

It’s time for the last big push. It’s time to begin collecting data, reflecting on my work, coming to conclusions. I have a renewed energy for what is ahead of me. Then, it will be on to the next chapter.

It’s time to appreciate the beauty of spring and use it to energize this phase of your life.
