"It does not matter how slow you go so long as you do not stop." - Wisdom of Confucius
When your boss and two veterinarians compliment you on the way you handle a bad cat that no one else had success with it.
Yah, that happened today.
I came to a realization last night that I am stuck in a rut. It was brought to my attention last night that I haven’t made a “To-Do List” in the last few months. If you know me, lists are my thing. I make lists for everything, it keeps me sane.
Recently though, I’ve been feeling less motivated to do anything lately. I know there are so many things I need to stay on top of, but at this point I cant bring myself to keep going. Over the past few months, I’ve been secretly sulking in my own self-pity after leaving SLO and transferring to CSUCI as a bio major. I know I can still get into vet school with a bio major, but the amount of time it’s taking is far more than I had planned.
Because my classes are now biology oriented and less of an animal science orient, I feel bored. This boredom is taking a major toll & I need to get out. I know if I dont, I wont even have a chance to get into vet school.
Work at the animal is going by slow. I have learned so much, but since I’ve been stuck, I haven’t been focused. I make little mistakes that apparently only I notice, but it bothers me so deep. I can’t figure out whats going on.
I’m hoping this is a phase. I’m hoping this is just an obstacle every student goes through. I can’t stay down so long or I’ll lose myself. I’m struggling so hard to keep myself up. Laughing as much as I can, joking as much as I can, trying to be myself. But when I go home at night, I can feel there’s something wrong.

jennjann asked: I saw you go to cal poly slo and are in animal sciences! I just got accepted into the program and can't wait to confirm :) do you like it?
I went to cal poly slo last year and unfortunately had to leave because of finances.. but if i had a chance to go back, i would go back in a heartbeat!
The program is absolutely amazing as well as the professors. (your advisors know what they’re talking about!) I absolutely loved my year there & I’m very excited for you!! That program is so hard to make it into because of the requirements. CONGRATS!!
I thank cal poly slo for giving me the experience. Thanks to them, I have a job at an animal hospital and am learning so much!
Finals are right around the corner & Organismal Biology doesn’t fuck around -___-
I’ll post more once winter break hits!
