I'm not a mommy, but I am a student. I noticed that some of you were going back to school, but didn't seem to be looking forward to it. I just wanted to say that time will probably fly by for you - it did for me anyway. I got my bachelor's in speech and hearing sciences and then I took a semester or two off when I got married. After that, I started my Masters in speech-language pathology (speech therapy), which was one of the hardest things I've ever done. It was a very stressful time. The program at my university is one of the top ten in the nation, so it's a good program, but it's a ton of work! I had a part time job when I worked on my Bachelor's, but there was no way I would have wanted a job during my Master's - I probably would have went nuts! We had classes and had clinic, which made it really difficult and I would be doing school work/clinic work 7 days a week and frequently 12-14 hours a day. Despite this, I'm so glad I did it. There were many times during my Master's that I questioned whether or not that I even wanted to go into this profession, but now that I'm almost done, I'm glad I stuck with it. I hated grad school, but I love the profession I will be graduating in June thank goodness! I just think if you really put your mind to it and are motivated, then you can do it - that's what I did.
Thanks for that uplifting post Karla and welcome to the board! I'm Shana the host of the board, alot of us do get down and out but who doesn't right. That's what we are here for to get our feelings out in the open and with these lovely group of women we try to encourage each other. I applaud you for sticking it out and finishing that master's I know it had to be tough! I think a big CONGRATULATIONS is in order!!!!!!!!!!!
