i have a lot of good things going on in my life right now so i'll contribute to this thread
1. i'm starting vet school and get to live out my dream in august...super duper excited, especially because i get to bring my dog with me to school this year! i previously lived in apartments/dorms and didn't think it would be fair to her to take her away from her yard (she loves to lay outside alone), but this year i'm renting a HOUSE with a big, beautiful, fenced in yard for her to play in
2. i got to draw blood for the first time at work today! i've worked at the same clinic three years (on and off, during summers/school breaks/etc since i've been away at school a lot) but usually just work kennel/help out with minor assistant duties like restraining for exams/blood draws/x-rays etc...never have really had a chance to do much else just due to circumstance. today one of the doctors had her dog in for vaccines and she let ME draw blood for the heartworm test! i kind of sucked at it and the blood ended up clotting so they had to redo it themselves, but i hit the vein and got a good amount of blood!
3. i'm going to toronto for a mini-vacation/long weekend on wednesday and am super excited since i've never been to a big city like that...anddd the drinking age in toronto is only 19, which is convenient as i'm only 20
