Lately, I’ve been thinking about the funny things my friends and I do now that we are in the thick of graduate school. Our lives have become one twirled & tangled speech language oral mechanism hearing swallowing neuroanatomy mess. So really, take a break from all that stress and insanity and laugh over how strange you are!
You know you are in SLP graduate school when…
*You text your friends in IPA
*You assess every child you see out in public (or do this)
*Eating healthy isn’t even an option. Can Starbucks be a meal replacement?! Oops.
*You realize how little you know
*SOAP is now all capitalized, doesn’t have anything to do with cleaning, and kind of makes you cringe
*The first place you go at Goodwill is the games, books, and toys section
*You get a break and all you do is watch reruns on Netflix
*You are torn between loving your classmates and wanting to be back home
*You’ve seriously considered taking (or are taking) some sort of ADHD medication or anti-anxiety medication
*You get zero male interaction. Okay, well maybe the delivery man or an older male client.
*The more you learn about different disorders, the more you think you might have one.
*Dollar bins are THE BEST.
*You think this is funny
*If you go to a different school than your undergrad, you have ZERO school spirit.
*You spend half of your measly graduate assistant income on lamination and velcro
*You could have an entire conversation with your classmates using abbreviations
*You test if your outfits are clinic appropriate by kung fu fighting and rolling on the floor
*You collect children’s books and board games
*You feel constant pressure to pursue a PhD and do a thesis
Isn’t being in SLP graduate school fun?! Did I miss anything?! Let me know!
