Very nearly there

It's almost the end of the semester. I'm taking a test on Wednesday for the current section we've been covering (some evolution mixed with bio-habitats and populations), then a week of review and the lab final, followed by the actual final the following Monday.

This semester has gone by really fast. I've enjoyed it. I love that I'm finally getting to do science to stuff. I love learning and I love being in college. I wish I had gone when I was younger. I envy people who went younger. People who got to live at the university and join sororities and stuff. I doubt I'll do any of that. At this point, I'll just be happy to be accepted to the program!

I have a lot of hopes for after I finish college. I'm sure I'll have to work at a vet's office for a while, but I'm hopeful that I can start finding large animal vets, and then eventually work at a zoo. I would love to work at the zoo in North Carolina, near my family. There's also a wildlife preserve there, and other options. I wouldn't mind working at a shelter or something similar.

I just can't help thinking, though, at times, "What if I go through all of this for nothing?"

  1. I seriously doubt you'll go through all of this for nothing--for one, continuing education students seem to garner more respect from hiring managers (at least the ones I meet), particularly when they've held downs jobs AND succeeded in furthering themselves. It's way more impressive than a typical high school-to-college kid living off mom and dad's money showing up at an interview (and with mediocre grades, to boot).

    I won't pretend to not hope you get to come out here. :)
