As you are all keenly aware, you are standing at the precipice, you are taking those final steps in the MA journey, and you are so close to the finish line. In a couple of weeks, you will have your MA in hand, and you will breathe a sigh of relief. And perhaps in the very same breath, you will also wonder, …what next for me? No matter what your plans are, no matter what you have lined up, there will be highs and lows in your future.
As I think about each of you, how talented each of you is, , I want to share the sentiments here in this TED talk as a bit of “food for thought”. Please listen and consider these thoughtful sentiments, as you continue to build an authentic and meaningful life:
I will see you all next Tuesday, and we can talk about those final touches and last minute concerns that come with closing out your thesis work. And we can also spend a little time reflecting on the meaning of this journey in the design of your “one wild and precious life”.
Ps. Please note that the final submission deadline for your thesis is now Friday, May 7th.
