March is child life month

Wow! We are 2 days into March and so far it has been great.

First, March is Child Life Month, so Happy Child Life Month!

 

Second...drum roll please...I GOT INTO GRAD SCHOOL woo hoo!! Honestly did not think this would happen. I applied to one school, one. I do not recommend this at all. So please don't do it! :)

As of Fall 2018 I will be attending the University of Minnesota through an online platform, getting my masters degree in Child and Adolescent Development and Child Life. Essentially it is a dual masters program. This will be the first time they are admitting anyone to this program.

I was really on the fence about accepting this offer or not, but I've decided to just do it. I've wanted to pursue Child Life for the past 7 years, and I still do, so I need to focus on that. As of Fall 2018, I will officially be a Golden Gopher. Kinda a weird mascot, but I'll go with it!

 

My class through UCSB extension - Intro to Child Life- will be coming to a close at the end of this month. It has been an awesome introductory class. I have really enjoyed the instructor as well as collaborating and hearing my peers ideas and thoughts. I highly recommend taking this course to test out the field a bit.

p.s. I got the super cute pin from Adventures In Child Life! Check out her etsy shop!

Practicum Time!
