Expectations

Have you ever felt that people expect more from you?

People have always underestimated me and I loved it. Nothing was expected of me so it was easy to exceed other's expectations.

Ever since I was accepted to vet school, people in admissions keep reminding me that I was the first to be accepted this year. Most of the doctors and technicians in the teaching hospital know me and I get comments about how I have seen so many surgeries that I should be able to do some with no problem. Seeing things and doing things are completely different though!

I have no doubt that vet school is going to be interesting. Hopefully, a good interesting.

My Escape

Everyone has to have something to get away from the business of work and school. My outlet has always been sports. Playing sports has always allowed me to forget all the responsibilities and problems in my life and just have fun.

Below is a video of me ski jumping. I must say that this is my favorite winter pastime. It combines skiing with a tidbit of danger. I do not suggest anybody especially novice skiers to try this. Enjoy.

First Week of Final Semester

I just finished my first week of my final semester for my fisheries and wildlife degree. It didn't even feel like I was in school. I had so much free time that I went to the teaching hospital a few times to watch some small animal surgeries. Not having classes on Fridays is going to be the highlight of this semester. However, my job starts next week and I know classes will start getting hectic soon. I expect Parasitology to be very hard as I have to learn all these characteristics about a ton of different parasites that all look the same.
Well, it's always good to have a good start though.
