Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Ummm idk where to start? I’m 24, currently a vet assistant, and in school to become a vet tech. Maybe one day I’ll be a veterinarian, but I’m kind of focused on my tech certification first and foremost lol. I work two jobs, at two separate vet clinics, and find time to study and game in between. I love my dog and will gladly talk about him constantly
What Inspires You Every day? : My dog, Sonic, if I had to choose anyone lmao but also my parents? They knew from day one that I’d pursue a career in the vet field despite my not knowing my career path at first. I just want to make them proud. And I think Sonic is proud of me regardless, or at least he is when I feed him snacks haha
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Memento Vivere. I have it tattooed on me actually. It means remember to live, and I think all too often I get caught up in my comparing my self and accomplishments to others that I forget to enjoy the ride, even if I feel like I’m going too slow. I’ve spent a lot of time second guessing my abilities, and what I want from for myself and my future, and it sucks? I want to live in the now, and enjoy myself while I do it,. I work 14 hour days and I challenge myself to try to decompress and be chill for a moment
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I think my ultimate goal right now is to graduate LMAO and pursue my bachelors.
My secondary goal is to get a puppy.
Both are equally important
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I’ve been a hit eh altogether lol. I’m still working. So I could be a lot worse off. The pandemic itself hasn’t been hard so much as other things that happened. Though I can’t wait to see the bottom half of my coworkers faces finally haha
What is a message you would like to give others? : Don’t be afraid to leave people behind for the sake of your happiness and growth. I left a three year ‘relationship’ because i didn’t feel like I was growing the way I should have been, and I wasn’t happy with where I personally was in life. I had to make my own moves in life and that included not living or being with this person. And it fucking sucks. I regret it sometimes, because I truly felt like we were soulmates, but I needed to get stable in my life and career and adulthood and I just knew I wouldn’t if I let myself settle like that.
Its hard. And it’ll feel like trash. But you cant let yourself feel or be held back by any one or thing.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: Nothing really? I don’t think I usually talk about myself anyway much lol.
I guess the only interesting thing that is worth noting is i finally bought a blendjet. Real exciting stuff to make a smoothie in my car
