Licensed, Certified, and $400 Poorer

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.


  1. yea--I get the first post!!!! Beautiful day in the midwest--unseasonably warm--70! : )
    Putting up Christmas lights today, but will not plug them in until after Thanksgiving. Your posts are great--give a great insight into daily life and customs. Next time I am baking, I will think "I should be doing this during Alison's free talks--then she could clean up the kitchen!"

  2. I am sure that ASHA is very glad you paid up! :) Just think of all those journals that you can read when you get back home!!! I'll be sending my check in today for licensure too so I will be poorer as well...
