AIM fast

No AIM/Trilly for 24 hours! Lets see if i can do this....

Oh, I remember

Pre-vet symposium was refreshing. I remember why I'm taking organic and other classes I don't particularly care for. For a while, I've been wondering if 6 more years of school, $100,000 in student loans, and sacrificing a bit of the social aspect of life is really worth it. Do I have the passion and dedication required to even get there? What else am I equipped to do? Maybe this isn't where God wants me. But pre-vet symposium really confirmed my mission in life.

"Being admitted to the profession of veterinary medicine, I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowlege and skills for the benefit of society through
  • the protection of animal health
  • the relief of animal suffering
  • the conservation of animal resources
  • the promotion of public health
  • the advancement of medical knowledge

I will practice my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of veterirnary medical ethics.

I accept as a lifelong obligation the continual improvement of my professional knowledge and competence."

Someday I hope to take that oath. I don't know if I'll work in a general practice or in a lab somewhere, but I want to help animals and people through my work. I just want to help. I want to know what veterinarians know. I want to be the person who gives a little boy's first puppy his first set of vaccinations and smiles as the boy lovingly takes that puppy home. I want to be the person who puts her arm around the old man who says goodbye to his beloved friend for the last time. That's what I want almost more than anything. It hurts. So that's why I'm here, and I'll do what it takes to follow that dream. Even if it means never dating a single person until I'm 30 or studying when I want to be with friends.

Up, uP and away!

Well i'm off to michigan in 4 hours... a lot of sleep I'm getting...

Today was one of those days. I got a headache, had a ton of meetings, missed lunch, got a $50 parking violation (again...), discovered I bought the wrong type of feminine products, and forgot my pin number to the atm machine. Lol... but it's not so bad. I still had a good day despite the bad parts. I'm going to michigan with pre-vet club! That makes me happy.

Love your neighbor as yourself. Would you tear down your neighbor? call her stupid? ugly? Probably not. So don't treat yourself that way. Love yourself! You are wonderful!

Selfish, Selfish me...

Ok... I should have been studying... and should be studying. Grr. I want a reason to dress up and go out and have fun with people. *sigh* Oh well. I guess i wasn't totally unpreductive... i finished my organic lab report, ambassador application, and a lot of errands. hmm I feel bad for torturing an old friend though. Well... i guess it wasn't technically torture. *ponders*

I found bible verses for my girls. That's exciting.

Verses to pray for my lovely ladies:

"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. "
Colossians 1:10-12

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
Ephesians 3:16-19

"And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."
Colossians 4:3-6

It's going to storm. I love storms. I can't wait for it just to roar outside while I feel so nice and cozy inside. Hmm... There are a lot of things i've never done... Somethings will never be done; others will have they're proper time and place. God's good timing.

Never have i ever....
