You Might Be A Vet Tech If...

Hello! I am alive still and things are going good :D I'm sorry if I worried anyone but I have been so busy that just getting home was a blessing. This semester is almost done YAY! Only to start up again in about two weeks after that >.> Ugh. Oh well.

Quick update -- I am currently working at the hotel, the vet clinic and still going to school. I am still in the process of lowering my hours at the hotel. I'm basically going to school full time and have to part time jobs (31 hours at the hotel, 20 hours at the clinic, and 12 hours in school + 2 online classes)

When I'm home, I use it to sleep and study, lol!

Kind of boring but alas, my mind is fried, I just really wanted to get onto LJ and write, I feel like I've been neglecting it.

Under the cut is just a cute list I found :)
