Sharing some randoms since my last post

One year of graduate school is complete! I am now in my third week of my second year in graduate school. I must say it has been going quite fast. I can’t believe that it’s been two years since I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree! I’m getting old ladies and gentlemen! LOL

Let’s do a quick recap as to what has been going on. I am taking 4 classes again this semester; one being my practicum course. Practicum is a pre internship where I must complete 100 hours in a school under the supervision of a counselor. My practicum is at my Alma Mater, Norristown Area High School in Norristown PA. I am working with a wonderful counselor who was actually my counselor when I was a NAHS student. It is great to be back at Norristown. I am able to see all the great things that have changed as well as those that have not. I cannot wait to learn and absorb from the site and my supervisor. This week I get to take my ID photo and become official! Haha! I will be sure to keep you posted on how the semester is going.  

This weekend I will be in D.C. speaking with senators and their representatives about the state of education. I will also be able to give my testimony on graduate school hardships. I have been asking students on the WCU Graduate Student Association Facebook page to get more information on their hardships. I want to be able to relay messages to these government officials. If you have anything you’d like to share please leave a comment below.

The blindfolds are from an exercise we did in class to help us "understand" what its like to have a vision impairment

This is the Philadelphia Multicampus University (WCU has a Philly campus for certain programs!)

A flick before the Graduate Student Orientation a few weeks back. Biggest turnout we've had in a while!
