Okay, so you guys may or may not find this is exciting as I do, or even really care for that matter, but I have an announcement! About my life! My future!

For quite awhile I've been interested in becoming a speech therapist. I'd love to work with kids for a living, but I don't want to be a teacher. I love helping people, but I don't want to be a psychologist. This is a really ideal job for me, and speech pathology is really interesting. But here's the catch - Gustavus doesn't offer a degree in speech pathology, communication disorders, or anything similar. I mean, there's a communication studies major, but it's not specific enough for me to be able to successfully go to grad school after graduation and do well there.

So...I am transferring schools. I don't know where I'm going yet, but I've started applying to several schools and I'm super excited. They all have really specific speech pathology/communication disorders degrees, and they're also a lot less expensive than Gustavus, which is a nice bonus. Not that I don't think Gustavus is worth what tuition is, it's just that it is expensive, whereas state schools are a lot cheaper.

Anyway, the schools I have applied to are...

Minnesota State University - Mankato
Minnesota State University - Moorhead
St. Cloud State University

Of course I have to see where I get accepted first, but Mankato is my first choice. Their program looks amazing, and I'd get to live like 20 minutes away from Gustavus!

So that's where I am right now. We'll just have to wait and see what the future holds! Anchors aweigh!


  1. u were supposed 2 b my lawyer & get me out of jail :(

  2. Good luck! I'm sure that you'll get into your first choice, the smarty pants that you are =]
