Dans le brouillard . _________ ___________ . 💪 Ce matin, il était l'heure de la reprise. . 📚 Après une semaine de repos et de réflexion, de doutes, d'hésitations, me voilà de retour avec une décision. Au cours de mon doctorat, j'ai dû me poser la question de l'abandon tous les jours, et plusieurs fois par jour. . 📚 Pas évident d'être motivée et de savoir où l'on va lorsque l'on a la sensation de s'être complètement plantée... . 📚 Entre deux crises de panique et de remise en question de mes choix de formation, j'ai souvent réfléchis à ce que le doctorat m'avait apporté. J'ai beaucoup appris. Beaucoup grandi. Je me suis souvent dépassée. Mais à quel prix... . 📚 Alors ce matin quand il a fallu m'y remettre j'étais un peu tremblante. Jusqu'à quand survivra cet énième élan de motivation ? . 📚 Un peu dans le brouillard, je lance un dernier regard vers 2018. J'ai un plan. J'ai trouvé une utilité à ce doctorat, malgré le changement de mon plan de carrière. Les prochains mois le confirmeront peut-être... . #🤞 #phdlife #phdmotivation #phdanxiety #phdepression #igersorleans #igersfrance #igersloire #bienveillance #liveeverydaybetter #liveyourdreams #dreambig #amoureusedelanature #macampagne #greenlifestyle #naturaliste #auvert #lilloise #girlswhogarden #greenthumbs #healthyhabits #bienetre #gratitudedaily #happyculture #loi#loiret #promenade #orleans #loire #poesiedelanature #centrevaldeloire

Took the entire morning to reply to all the emails I received over the past 2 weeks. Also started to plan how I am going to read and take notes for my comprehensive exam preparation which caused A LOT of anxiety 😬 hoping once my reading lists and questions get finalized at the end of January I will feel better about prepping for these papers and exams 😬😬😬😬😬😬 I wish I could have the life of my in-laws dog Stella, who lives her best life everyday. #dogsofinstagram #cariboo #holidaysareover😭 #yql #phdlife #phdchat #phdanxiety #comps

Part of me wonders if PhD stands for Panic (attacks) Happen Daily. This was taken at the end of a panic attack was that lasted 40 minutes. Not the first one I’ve had this week and it’s definitely not the last. #phd #phdlife #phdepression #phdanxiety #impostersyndrome #gradschoolproblems #mentalhealthawareness #depression #anxiety #academicmentalhealth

Good luck to all my fellow NSF-GRFP applicants! But also remember super hard that securing fellowships doesn’t determine your worth as a scientist or human, and also these applications are largely giant crapshoots. We need as many people as we can get interested in furthering science and you’re a hero for pursuing it as far as I’m concerned #nsf #nsfgrfp #fellowship #proposal #applications #lablife #gradstudent #phdepression #phdanxiety #impostersyndrome #phdstudent #phdcandidate #funding #sciencelife #gradstudentstruggle #mentalhealthinscience #mentalhealthinstem #gradmentalhealth #mentalhealthinschools #gradstudentlife #academia #researchlife #younginvestigator #womeninstem
