Vet update - Saturday

I've just come back from the interview orientation and I have to say, that everything confirms my decision that I WANT to be a vet. It is the ONLY thing I want to do.

Sometimes when you sit a room of your peers and watch people who are where you wish you were, it's easy to have second thoughts about a choice. The last 3 hours has confirmed every decision I've ever made to get myself to this point.

Wish me luck for Tuesday. I think most of my nerves up until this point was me doubting this choice - what I am sacrificing and giving up, and what I'm asking Matt to support me through - knowing the emotional, physical, and monetary cost this is going to be. It better damn be worth it. Now, all doubts are gone. This is what I am meant to be, and I can now push any thoughts away that I might be happy doing something else, or that it might not be worth the cost, or that I'm not good enough. I have finally answered those questions to my satisfaction - and thank God that I did so BEFORE the interview. I left the orientation early because I felt like I learned what I came to learn - do I really want to do this, and CAN I do this.

And the answer is an unequivocal "YES"!
