*My "month in pictures" post has had to be postponed, after reading Samm's blog post about all the issues Blogger is currently having with loading photos into blogs and blog posts and even whole blogs disapearing...so I thought it would be a better idea to share my very exciting news instead!
I found out my exam results and VCE mark early in December and was really happy with how I went but for the past month and a bit I have been waiting anxiously for University offers to come out and find out which course I got into.
And Guess what!?....last Monday I found out I got offered a place in my first preference of
I am so happy and very excited at the moment!
It wasn't really until this year that I decided I might like to do Speech Pathology and it wasn't until after going to the open day at the university and watching the demonstrations that I knew this is what I would love to do!
I decided I wanted to do something working with children and helping people and possibly in the health care industry but the past couple of years, my other ideas were doing a double degree in Nursing/Midwiffery and specialising in NICU, Psychology or Primary Teaching. I decided on Speech Therapy because in some ways it is a little bit of all three and I think it would be really interesting. I also like the diversity in being able to work in schools, hospitals, private practise etc.
and Speech Therapy and many jobs in the health industry such as nursing and also teaching, are occupations that you can have a family and come back to.
Also, I watched an American show a few years back where they were using therapy dogs in Speech Pathology with children, which I found really interesting because I do a lot of work with dogs and training (there's something you didn't know!).
Anyway, so there's my exciting news for the week! I have enrolment day this Friday and then University starts in March, so it's going to be all very new and exciting and I can't wait!
Hope you had a great weekend,
