You Know You're A Speech Pathology Major When

Things that only speech pathology majors know all too well.

You Know You're A Speech Pathology Major When

There are a ton of undergraduate programs that you can go into. The one that I chose is the famous Bachelor of Arts in speech-language pathology. I absolutely love it and I guarantee that my fellow speech majors say the same thing. There are easy times and many tough times, but with the knowledge and experience you gain from the program, you know of these aspects.

1. The start of the program is something beyond what you’ve ever learned.

2. While in your phonetics class, you are in the library making sounds to transcribe the word and people are telling you to be quiet.

3. Once you learn about voice, place, and manner, you can’t help but watch the tongue and jaw movements while talking to others.

4. You enter into the audiology classes and you start to question which side you want to go toward.

5. As you move further, you feel the need to highlight all of your notes because everything is important.

6. You're running around trying to contact offices for observations.

But you can't find any because it's like finding a needle in a hay stack.

7. The dreaded GRE.

We don't speak of that.

8. Then comes the application process and you want to cry every day.

9. Once you’re applying, you’re realizing that everyone else has started to you pretty much start to compete.

10. You see that envelope in the mail of your either acceptance or denial and you sit there with it in front of you for hours, not wanting to open it.

11. You open the envelope and you see an acceptance letter and you scream because your dream came true.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
