Greeting young scholar, with books in your hands,
Your journey has just begun in the land of PhD!
Many challenges lay ahead, so take careful heed,
To the lessons that you learn, and the knowledge that you need.
In the land of PhD, where students abound,
There’s much to learn, and much to expound.
The life of a student, a researcher supreme,
Is filled with challenges, yet it’s all but a dream.
From picking a topic, to reading for hours,
To crafting a thesis, and presenting with powers.
There are classes to take, and papers to write,
And deadlines that loom, causing fright in the night.
But fear not, dear student, for you’re not alone,
In the land of PhD, you’ve got a home.
R3ciprocity to guide you, colleagues to share,
The journey ahead, with each and every dare.
But as you embark on this academic quest,
Remember to take breaks, and give yourself rest.
For while the life of a student may seem grand,
It’s important to keep a life beyond the desk and stand.
So take time to read, and time to explore,
The world beyond research, and the academic score.
And when you’re feeling stuck, and progress is slow,
Remember the words of Dr. Seuss, and let them flow:
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
For in the land of PhD, you are in control,
Of your future, your destiny, and your soul.
So embrace the journey, and never give up,
For in the end, the reward is more than enough.
You’ll hold a degree, a badge of your might,
In the land of PhD, where dreams take flight.
Ready to make your mark in the land of PhD?
Reach for the stars, and your dreams will come true!
Go out there and make it happen, dear scholar, your future awaits!
You have the courage, you have the knowledge,
and you have the drive to make your mark in the world of academia.
So, what are you waiting for?
Go conquer the PhD journey!
In the land of PhD, your dreams are within reach
– so take the first step and make them happen!
