So I was thinking to myself for fun, what would I be doing if vet school wasn't a possibility for me? If there was no chance that I'd be going after a DVM, what would I be doing in this alternate universe? My second choice: Pastry Chef. Yes, Pastry Chef. I'd still do a lot of volunteer work with animals and shelters, but I wouldn't want to be a tech or assistant for my whole life. My second great love is baked goods! Becoming a vet is of couse my first choice, but if that never panned out I'd be quite happy opening my own bakery. How about you guys? Your second choice? Is there anything outside of vet med you could be happy doing?
