Study Break

Exam week has just started and it has already been crazy! I had my first final exam yesterday and although it went well, I was already exhausted. In order to recharge, I went to bed early last night and woke up this morning feeling refreshed. I realized that I was so tired and worn out because I wasn’t allowing myself any breaks. It’s important to realize that no matter how busy you are, you must take breaks! No matter how short or how you spend them, they are important to mental sanity (and overall wellness). This morning I took the time to pick out an outfit and watch an episode of  Grace and Frankie, one of my favorite shows on Netflix!

In order to stay comfortable ,and look semi-presentable, I decided to wear my Pink Azalea monogram shirt that I got over spring break. It is super comfortable and I love the color combination. When I was picking the thread color I wasn’t sure if I would like it, but it ended up being perfect!  I paired it with dark wash skinny jeans and black sandals. I purchased these sandals last year at Payless (they were a steal!), but here are some similar ones (not as inexpensive, but still budget-friendly!).

Time for a Break

After a week of exams and a 7 hour drive, I am finally home in South Carolina! Even though it is rainy and gross out, I am so happy to be home! This past week was crazy and stressful, but I’m now free from school until the end of January. Today has been spent unpacking and working on Christmas presents. I also made myself the most delicious lunch:

This afternoon I am heading to the store for more lights to decorate the house and the tree. I can’t wait to share the decorations with y’all!

A Pre-Vet Student’s Guide of What To Do Over Winter Break

With the semester 2/3 of the way over, I am crazily trying to make plans for winter break. I have almost 6 weeks off of school and it is the perfect time to get more shadowing experience with a veterinarian. Winter break is prime time for an internship because even with doing a 3 week internship, it still leaves 3 weeks to celebrate the holidays with family. I am going to put in some hours at work (I work at a small animal emergency hospital) and have found an equine veterinarian to shadow. A variety of experience is always helpful when applying to vet school, plus it’s really fun to be around and work with other animals than cats and dogs. Since I have spent 13 years around horses, I already have an equine background, but it can never hurt to get more experience! As a student who has shadowed many veterinarians over the years, I encourage all pre-vet college students and even middle school (that’s when I started!) and high school students who are interested in becoming a veterinarian, to reach out and contact their local vet. Veterinarians are normally more than happy to help students out and to have you shadow them because they know what the process is like and they want to help!

Stay Fabulous,
