SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) This is so true and how I've decided to look at my year off too! I just finished my undergrad at U of R so I don't have any more schooling to do and with so many credits (a non-science related degree program plus extra for the pre vet requirements) taking more classes would barely change my GPA. Soo..I'm going to continue working at the SA clinic I've been employed at for almost two years now to continue to gain experience in the field. I know, from living in a city my whole life, that I need more LA experience so I've decided to volunteer at a therapeutic riding center which I hope will be so cool and rewarding all at once! For fun I'm going to read ALL sorts of books since I never had time nor did I ever feel like recreational reading during my UG (I finished reading A Dog's Purpose in less than 24 hours last week and would recommend for any dog lovers out there haha). I also want to foster rescues so bad but I will have to work on my mom with that one. Other than that, I just want to relax and have fun with friends and family to make up for weeks spent studying and doing homework and working whenever I wasn't studying or doing homework. My best friend is moving to Calgary tomorrow to start her first big girl job so now I'll have time to visit her as well! I guess even at the hardest times, if you dig deep enough, you can find positives in any situation!
