I Will Survive … A Grad Cover Version You Must Sing!

I had a blast at the Graduate School Survival Skills GHC session. It was about surviving, but most of all thriving in graduate school! I have posted session notes here. We ended the session with this version of I will survive (It's a must go-to karaoke song for all grad students! To be sung to the tune of "I Will Survive"): At first I was afraid, I was petrified Thinking I could never do research, I'd have to hide I spent so many nights thinking all I did was wrong I grew strong I learned how to carry on Now my groove's back! From a dark place. I just walk in and people leave with love of my research taste I have changed the way I work Now I know that was the key And I know for just one second Grad school doesn't bother me And now I'll go! Walk out the door I'm turned around now Doubt's not welcome anymore I used to feel so very hurt that I could cry I thought I'd crumble I thought I'd lay down and die Oh no, not!! I will survive! As long as I know how to think I'll make ir out alive I've got all my life to live I've got all my thoughts to give And I'll survive I will survive! Hey, hey! Stay great, Daniella
