Sophomore Year Recap

Hello, I'm back, and I am alive and well! It's been a full year since my last blog post, so I figured I should probably update you. This past year in my life has been such a super busy and redemptive time and I can't wait to share it with you!

      Picking up where I left off, last summer I ended up getting a fantastic job in the Parasitology Lab at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine! (I can hear the "ew, gross," through the computer screen now, haha!) I've really enjoyed my job because 1. I have learned SO much about the importance of parasitology in veterinary medicine, 2. I have the BEST coworkers ever, and 3. I've made so many great connections. I worked all throughout my sophomore year and will continue working there this fall, so be on the lookout for a blog post on how to balance working part-time and being a full time college student!

      Once the summer ended, my sophomore year began and boy, oh boy was my fall semester a wild one! Auburn won the Iron Bowl, I was in a car accident that totaled my car, I adopted a kitten (!!!!!!), I ended up dropping my organic chemistry class, my Pre-Veterinary Medical Association (PVMA) club began preparing for hosting a symposium in the spring, and I was still a somewhat anxious college gal. 

      Spring semester rolled around and things got fun! I turned 20 years old, it snowed in Auburn TWICE, and my PVMA club hosted the APVMA 2018 Symposium which was a huge success! I had some amazing opportunities thrown my was as well like being offered a teaching assistant position for one of my favorite animal science professors this fall, and being elected the Social Chair of my PVMA club!  Along with his I realized some really big dreams of mine that will hopefully be coming true this fall! I'm sure I'll be sharing more on that later!

      As you can tell, it was a really great year for me! One that was full of growth and a period in my life that meant so much to me following such a difficult freshmen year. With all of that being said, I'm expectant that my junior year will be even more eventful and a period of even greater personal development. I truly cannot wait to share what I hope will be coming true in my near future!
