Long time, no post.

So after many months of debating whether I should post an update, I decided: hey, why not. I'm sitting doing nothing on overnights and I've got time to kill before rounds.

September came and went, and I finally achieved a childhood dream: I earned my degree in veterinary medicine. Yes, it wasn't the traditional way and it caused me a lot of grief and self-doubt, but in the end I believe that it made me a stronger individual. I'm better at rolling with the punches and at receiving criticism.

I'm now over 6 months into my internship and I'm still mostly enjoying myself. Winter in upstate NY is rough (it's currently 7 degrees F) but so far hasn't been too bad. Foaling season has started off with a bang and a fizzle, but that's the way life goes.

I applied for equine surgery residencies, and I'll find out about those at the beginning of February. Fingers crossed I get something. I really like UC Davis and enjoyed my visit there, so here's hoping they liked me too!

Anyway, that's my life right now. Can't say that I have much to complain about, and it could be a lot worse.


  1. Hello,
    First of all let me say I really enjoy reading your blog! I am a highschool student in California and I would love to go to RVC. Is there anything you recommend I do to help my application? I am currently in both Chemistry and Biology AP, and I am worried that I will not get fives on both of them; most likely a five in bio and a 4 in chemistry. Is there anyway around it if I don't get a five on both AP's? I will keep studying to get the 5's but I am nervous about chemistry. Any advice?

    1. Honestly, I have no idea about anything regarding the application process for high school students. I would talk to admissions about this stuff.
