Sometimes I don't even realize how much I'm cramming into a single day. From volunteer hours, class lectures, working in the research lab, shadowing SLPs, studying for exams - not to mention working 2 jobs, being a wife, a dog mom, a friend, etc. Life has been overwhelming to say the least. Not in a bad way, but in an "OMG what just happened" way. If I'm being honest, had I known just how competitive SLP programs are, I might have been too scared to go after this. Some days I still question whether I'm smart enough to pull this off. Then I snap out of it and realize how much I've accomplished.
I will hold myself to a standard of grace not perfection.
There is no guarantee that I'll get into grad school, but I can say that I have given 110% to this so I am PROUD. And I also believe that you reap what you sow. POSITIVE THOUGHTS = POSITIVE VIBES = POSITIVE LIFE.
Anyway, thanks for being a part of my journey to grad school :) I'll keep you guys updated, but I won't know much until the spring!
