I keep thinking about college - where I'm going to go and whatnot. I'm getting my bachelor's in Liberal Studies after this semester is over.
I've been batting around the idea of becoming a vet - since I was a little kid.
I keep talking myself out of it - because I think it would be too hard. Well, everyone tells me it is going to be very hard. And I'm not disagreeing with them either. I'm sure my classes are going to be a challenge. I keep trying to figure out what would be the easiest degree for me to get... and I've even looked at things that I could get - but I would be miserable doing... but I could do them.
And then I realize what an idiot I'm being - because I'm talking myself out of doing something that I've wanted to do - because it might be too hard for me to do it? I'm thinking to myself: won't I regret a decision like that for the rest of my life?
I've decided to stop being an idiot today - and really plan for this. I want to volunteer at a vets office (if that is possible) and at a shelter. I thought maybe I could donate a certain number of hours a week if they would take me. One of the professors at my university is a vetrinarian.
So I might get to talk to him about what I'd like to do as well.
One of my professors also liked the idea of me volunteering - she said it would break my heart a few times and see if I could handle it.
I would like to know if I could handle it before I went to school.
In the meantime - while I'm going to do my best to get my bachelors - and after that volunteer and take a biology and chem class. If all goes well, then I'll work to get all the requirements needed before I head into veterinary medicine.
Anyone else decide to scrap the easy way and decide to do what they really wanted? Or in the process of planning?
