March 2, 2021

I'm not sure if anyone remembers that I once had a blog or will ever see this, but it's March of 2021 and I just read back my old posts and enjoyed them so much that I thought it was time to update this so in 3 years I can look back and remember where my life was at this moment. So I'm 22 years old (I'll be 23 in a month) and I'm at Midwestern University getting my Master's Degree in Speech Language Pathology. I just finished my second quarter and only have 5 left (3 academic and 2 full time placements). Life is so good and I am so grateful for all of the people and opportunities in my life. When I graduated from Purdue University in December of 2018, I was more confused about the direction my life was heading in than I had ever been before. Only a little over two years later and I feel very confident that I've found the right career path for myself and am doing things everyday to prepare for my future...while still enjoying living in the moment - or trying to! I've never been so great at that. I'm always focused on the next things. That's one thing grad school has helped me with - slowing down and "being where my feet are". I have so much going on and am so busy all the time it's hard to focus on anything but the moment I'm living in and I think that's a good thing! As of now, I'm mostly interested in working with the adult population, specifically individuals with Aphasia. I still have a ton to learn about and that could change, but that's where my heart is at now. I'm in about 4 classes each quarter and then clinic, between 4 and 5 hours a week. This past quarter I worked with 3 clients and I am continuing working with them all in the next quarter which starts in a week. I'm looking forward to taking new classes and continuing to learn! Maybe I'll keep this blog thing going and write again? Maybe in 3 years, I'll find this post and do another "life update".
