I just realised it's been over a year since I last wrote a journal entry. In the past year I've been in the final year of school and applying for universities, and I can tell you now I am glad to see the back of that process and quite frankly, the school. This combination of work, applications and general illness in the last year but also the importance of everything I've done has been why I've been so quiet and inactive, so sorry to people I haven't talked to in forever! Plus last year in all the holidays I was volunteering or doing work experience, so I didn't even have spare time then. The good news is that I got offers to study Veterinary Medicine (Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Surgery with Veterinary Medical Sciences, if we're being accurate) (Yes this does mean I'm doing 3 degrees) and despite a horrific exam period due to me becoming very ill to the extent the doctor said I may not be able to sit my exams this year, I got the grades I needed and this month will be starting at uni and be there for the next 5 years. This is something I've wanted to do since I was about 9 and have been working for since, so this means more to me than I think anyone else could ever believe, and I can still hardly believe I will be doing, seeing how much has been against me, in the last couple of years especially. However, this also means that if I was inactive this year, I am now going to be extremely inactive due to the nature of my course and my future career. And the fact my campus is in the middle of the countryside so who knows what the internet is like out there.
Other things that have happened in the past year, not related to animals (which most of my life is), is that I became a Guide leader and a ballet teacher. Despite not getting on with children. And ended up in charge of about 40 of them helping run the school dance show at a major venue in my city for dance and performing arts. And competed in my first horse show last week and found out milking cows is really fun. Oh wait, that's animals. *facepalm* And got a 2DS just because of Pokemon. And I'm working on a Chandelure plushie, which may or may not ever get finished now, even though I only need to do a couple of the arm things.
On a slightly negative note, I got taken into hospital last week after having a very bad fall from a horse (in said horse show) and seeing that I am now incapable of doing much other than watch daytime TV and do stuff using my hands, I will have at least one more thing to upload before I move!
