I decided before I went to China that I would maintain my speech pathology license and my membership in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association so that I can easily return to the field if that's what I decide to do. I just renewed them both online, for the cost of almost a month's salary in China. Yikes! I hope it's worth it.
In other news, I have found a way to view comments again. Hooray! So feel free to re-start the conversation.
