I believe I can pass… A bit of R&B for Grad Students

So, a few days ago, my sister sent me a quick email to cheer me up, saying ‘I hope you aren’t on the verge of breaking down’.

She usually sends me songs to motivate me through the week/day etc. This time, she had sent me the Jacob Lusk version of the song “I believe I can fly”. You guys all know the song right?

By then, I was suffering from a thesis coma of some sort (?) and was passed out in the lab by the contents of my thesis against will.

Anywho, as soon as I heard the lyrics of the famous song, I had to edit it to make it relevant to my life.

Almost instantly, I had my masterpiece of the day… a song called “I believe I can pass”.

For those of you who doesn’t know the song, or don’t have a mp3 of it, try listing to it on Youtube on the background while singing to the edited lyrics.┬áTrust me, it’ll boost up your energy for those of you writing your thesis right now.

(scroll down for the lyrics)

I used to think that I could not go on
Thesis is nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true work
I’m pouring on the everlasting pages
If I can write it, then I can defend
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it
***
[Chorus]
I believe I can pass
I believe I can finish this
I think about it every night and day
Ready the fingers and type away
I believe I’ll be done
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can pass
I believe I can pass
I believe I can pass
***
See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in research I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me, oh
If I can write it, then I can defend it,
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it,
***
[Chorus]
***
Hey, cause I believe in me, oh
If I can write it, then I can defend it,
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it,
***
[Chorus]
***
Hey, If I just start typing
I can pass
I can pass
I can pass, hey
If I just start typing
I can pass
Passsssss~ ohhh!!!
*****the end*******
I think some super talented band/singer should make this into a recording. Please… all of us can use some of this motivation.
