Thank you! Apologies for being so inactive recently.
Although the majority of my pracs/labs didn’t run this week, my schedule turned out to be pretty full on. I have 9am lectures each day which means I have to be up by at least 6:30 - something I am definitely not used to. Next week labs are running which means 5-6pm ends to most days too.
That being said, I am absolutely loving my course so far. It’s so refreshing to be studying something that I’m actually interested in and for which I already have a basic understanding of a lot of the concepts, rather than learning everything from scratch.
Animal & Agricultural Sciences has turned out to be be my favourite subject so far; our lecturer is great and learning about animals in a practical, real-life sense is really fun. Although the lecturer is a bit hard to follow sometimes, I’m also really enjoying biology. It always was my favourite subject so I’m not surprised. I’m sure I’ll enjoy Animal Evolution too but we don’t start on the actual content until next week. The only thing I’m worried about is not having done chemistry in high school, so hopefully I’ll catch on quickly.
I’m thinking of sticking a giant ‘DVM’ on my wall to remind myself of my goals. Whether or not veterinary medicine is what I want to pursue, I want to at least have the option. At this point I have high hopes for my future!
