February 14, 2023 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Dear Hoyas, 

Exhausted. Sleep-deprived. Saddened at the latest national tragedy out East Lansing. Stressed to the max. Sound like you? Yeah, I’m feeling it, too. As a native Michigander, I’m just sad today, and angry, and exhausted (not midterms, for me, but a teething baby). So what to do, eh? 

Well, it is Valentine’s Day and if I’m honest when I was in college, today was a total bummer of a day (with the exception that one of my besties’ birthdays is also today). We often focus very easily on what others have and value our worth on having the love or acceptance or admiration of others. This Valentine’s Day, I challenge you to look at the most important relationship you will ever be in – the one with yourself. The truth is that you are NOT defined by your failures. The C on a midterm. The internships you didn’t get. The broken hearts. The missed points or shots in a game. The job you got fired from… It is so easy at a school like Georgetown to feel like everyone else has it together, and that it can be hard to feel like you belong when all you see are others’ successes and not their failures (and trust me, they are there for all of us). 

But… You. Matter.  I will say that again. You matter and you are loved. You are unique, and I am constantly amazed by the wonderful minds and hearts that I have the privilege to accompany here at Georgetown. So today, go ahead and give yourself a hug. Do a little something just for you. Buy a fancy latte. Blast that favorite song and dance around your dorm room. Call a loved one who you miss. Go for a walk (seriously the weather outside is amazing and would lighten anyone’s mood). Smile at someone. Oh and I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you to register for the upcoming Government, Education & Nonprofit Career Fair. *wink, wink*

Then, once you’ve done something to take care of yourself and honor yourself, then come make an appointment to see us. An internship, or a job, or a career is only one part of ourselves. We are a beautiful and complex creation of so much more. Last, I’ll leave you with this quote which one of my parents sent to me when I was an undergrad. I often return to it, and I hope it will be helpful for you, too: 

“May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us. – St. Therese”
