I like to listen to musical soundtracks while I draw. Currently, I’ve been listening to the Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables soundtracks, which both are conveniently one hour and forty minutes long. I can listen to the musical and know approximately how long I’ve been working depending on what song I’m on. Sometimes I work in my friend’s room and yell out random lines.
Some people’s weeks end as soon as their last class on Friday is done and get to relax and go out, but not for the farm teaching assistants (TA). This semester I am interning with Dr. Kerns and his teaching assistants on Friday nights. Our nights can include feline spays and neuters, declaws, vaccinations, appointments, grading and more.
We meet out at the barns and families drop off their cats for us to treat, neuter or spay and some appointments may come in and then it’s to the barns! Our job is to vaccinate all the horses at the western barn over the matter of a few weeks and we may have some stuff do do at the animal science barn. Each week contains something different.
This week I got to assist Dr. Kerns with a spay! We also had to vaccinate … Read More »
97 DAYS UNTIL I BECOME A GRADUATE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF FINDLAY
(with both a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of science!)
The first three weeks of this semester have flown by, making it a little easier for me to handle the idea that I’ll be a communication professional in the real world come a few short months. Since I have been working towards this day for 21 years of my life, I’m not really sure how to live without striving for education. Here’s a collection of thoughts going through my head.
I don’t know how to adult.
I can hardly handle my 8am once a week, how am I supposed to wake up at that time every day?!
Where am I going to find a horse to ride? I don’t think I can go without riding for too long.
What if I lose contact … Read More »
Wow! Snow! Not just falling from the sky anymore, but actually building up on the ground, too! It’s so pretty! So smooth! So fluffy! So glittery! Snow is magical.
I can see how people get tired of it, especially if this sort of weather starts in November and goes on for months and months. However, it’s still so new to me that sometimes I just wander around outside wondering at it all. I got so excited in my printmaking class because I saw icicles! They were pretty tiny, but they were icicles nonetheless. Winter is so cool… literally.
Nothing’s more difficult for me than trying to find the motivation to dive right back into classes when I come back from break. Winter break was definitely well needed after such a hard, stressful and busy fall semester. I cherished great time with family, friends, working and celebrating the holidays. Winter break has come to an end and it’s time to come back to my Findlay family and the reality of school.
As upperclassmen syllabus week is now cut down to the first 10 minutes of class and then we hit the ground running as we dive right into lecture. The first week goes by rather slow as there are not very many assignments or studying to be done yet. At this point, you can cherish the time you have to watch your favorite movies and TV shows, get caught up on odds and … Read More »
I’m tired because I didn’t sleep much two nights in a row, and that threw off this whole week for me. However, I think I’m getting back into the groove of things. I had a good time at home over break, but it’s nice to be back.
