Three weeks ago, I joined 33 other speech-language pathology students as we began our graduate program. Since then, we have organized and stocked our desks with office supplies, chocolate, textbooks, snacks, and colorful markers (Target made quite the profit off us the past couple weeks). We’ve also started classes and successfully conquered our first neurology quiz.
AND we’ve been entrusted with other human beings and expected to help them become better communicators. They call that clinic.
While the 12-hour days can feel long at times, I feel blessed to be at this place at this time with these people. I love it. Looking back over the past 4 years, it’s amazing to see how God has brought me to this point. My freshman year, I did not enjoy college and basically chose to major in speech pathology because I didn’t know what else to pick. Now, it’s second nature to use terms like…
I’m nerding out right now just thinking about speech pathology. When you stop and think about it, it truly is extraordinary how God made us to communicate with each other (and Him!) through speech and language. The human brain is amazing!
So this next week, take a moment during your busy days and mundane tasks to notice the extra in the ordinary of your life. And once you find it, go ahead and nerd out over it. Trust me, it’s fun.
