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?"
