Goin' to College to get me some Knowledge


yeah. that below?
My stack of books for the semester. and a few more on the way. That big ole' thick one near the bottom, I swear it weighs 20 pounds!!
Good gracious me alive!
I cannot. CANNOT.
( or perhaps I am merely refusing)
believe that week numero uno of college 2010 has been completed!!!
Not sure if I feel like groaning, patting myself on the back for surviving, embracing the excitement that's bubbling up, or just pushing the thought out entirely!
What an emotional roller coaster week one has been!
Most of you know..I am enrolled in the Veterinary Technology Program. This is my first term of the program. I really feel like I've found my "element." all my life I have been involved with animals... having pets, reading about them, always wanting to catch them, nurse them back to health,touch them, learn about them, keep them as my own. ( mom turned me down many times on that last one) They fascinate me. Horses have for sure been top on my list, I've been working with them since I was 10 and riding competitively/seriously for close to 9 years.
Let's just say I love my furry friends. ha ha. and no don't worry I'm not secretly working for PETA. [they cross the line of insane in my opinion! sheesh!!]
So why not further my love of animals by making a career of it?!
OH! OH! OH! Yesterday I got my SCRUBS!!! I warned you I am easily amused and excited. You should have seen me. I picked them up at the campus bookstore and clutched them tighter than a momma with her baby. These were mine. My very first pair of scrubs. Ater putting them on I didn't want to take them off!! Nobody told me how COMFY scrubs are!!!! ooooh my goody goodness!! I seriously feel like I'm wearing my PJ's. .yes I am in love. It's so weird though... I kept seeing this girl in scrubs in the window reflections..realizing it was me. I never pictured I would be one of those girls walking to class in scrubs, all official with my name and school program on them. geeez, I suddenly feel like I should feel more grownup. Yet I still feel like I'm a kid most of the time.... a kid in scrubs trying to be smart. LOL.
Are you all still out there? More posts to come I promise! =]
