Personal Growth

The past few years have seen me do a lot of growing up.  I earned my second degree-a degree in veterinary technology, passed the national exam to become a certified veterinary technician, applied and was accepted in the state of Colorado as a CVT, have been working in the field for the past year, and have earned some much needed self confidence.  It was pretty challenging to overcome my lifelong queasiness about blood and guts, but when you study anatomy and begin to see how things work, it really does become fascinating.  This fuzzy person was there for me through all of it.

I also took a beginning drawing class and a zoology class while working full time this spring semester.  Focusing on myself, on things that interest me and that also make me feel useful, has gotten me through some rotten times in recent years.  I think I'm a stronger and better person for it.  I feel like I've grown a lot on the inside.  On that note, I start guitar lessons next week, will be doing volunteer work at the Denver Zoo this summer, and am loving drawing in my spare time.
