Recently I have spent lots of time doing online homework and even wasting time on certain questions. However this is not a terrible thing because […]

by Katie April 10, 2015

My biggest challenge in college has been stress management and making time for myself.  I think it’s extremely important to take care of one’s self and have “me time”, time to spend with friends and time to do the hobbies that you most enjoy.  Balance is key.  Does that ideal always happen for me?  Well, […]

PRAXIS PANIC

by Isabella March 18, 2015

On Monday, I had the good fortune to take my PRAXIS examination. It’s the exam all students wishing to obtain licensure to become a speech-language pathologist have to take.
