It’s the week after spring break, and I must say, my brain has one leg in vacation mode and slowly tippy toeing its way towards study mode (but let’s be honest, my brain is mostly preferring vacation mode at this moment).
Second-year student from Los Angeles, Calif.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and the opportunity to enjoy some delicious turkey. It has been a week since I arrived back in Ames from visiting my family in Los Angeles for the Thanksgiving holiday. It was so nice to see everyone again, including my two dogs and my bearded dragon. The weather was also perfect (low 70s)! I am now back in Ames, and it is definitely starting to feel like winter. The mornings so far have been a chilly 18 degrees, but the peep of the sun in the afternoons makes for a nice stroll outside.
Hello Vet Med Enthusiasts!
The month of October has brought beautiful red and orange trees, as well as nice chilly mornings and evenings. I was pleasantly surprised by the early kiss of snow we received in the beginning of the month. It’s time to take out the warm coats and scarves!
My summer filled with concerts, beaches and staying up late binge watching Netflix has come to an end, and it is that time of the year again…back to school! I arrived in Ames last weekend, after a three-day journey from Los Angeles with my cat, Maddy.
It is mid-April, and final exams are looming closer and closer. It’s unbelievable to think that there are only 3 weeks until second year will come to a close.
Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to participate in the Ophthalmology enucleation lab. This wet lab was in conjunction with the Feline Club. Each student had a cadaver dog or cat to practice enucleation techniques.
It has come to that time of the semester when us vet students can take a sigh of relief and embrace spring break.
After two months of non-stop midterm exams, I decided to take a mental break and venture out to Chicago for some sight -seeing, as well as to experience the infamous Chicago deep-dish pizza! Chicago is about a five-and-a-half-hour drive from Ames.
