vetavision

Its been super busy here but not a lot interesting has gone on. It turned very cold and has done nothing but rain for the last 2 weeks. It was-6 when I woke up this morning!!
Last week, thursday--> sunday was a huge open house at the vet college that is put on every 3 years known as vetavision. All students work at a booth (I worked at the dairy booth). There are things like large animal surgery, small animal surgery, clinical pathology, gross pathology, bugs and worms, wildlife medicine, exotic medicine, etc. there are over 30 exhibits!! all students also had to volunteer at admissions, concession, gift shop, etc. all in all it was about an 8 hour commitment all 4 days for me. Here is a clip from the local news on vetavision if you want a peek at what went on! There are also live animal demos such as the dairy booth, petting zoo, poultry, beef, horses, llamas,sheep, alpacas, exotic animals, fistulated cow that you could stick you hand into, etc. All in all it was a success but left me tired and a very unproductive weekend homework wise. It was fun setting up though as we had to move about 200 bales and I love moving bales. It was a fun alternative to class :)

I am super excited for the upcoming thanksgiving long weekend. Can't wait to go home, see the family, the horses, and just forget about studying for 3 days! Grandparents will be down from Winnipeg who I have not seen in a very long time.
I've also had to get a new lap top as my old girl finally died on me and classes have been going so fast I can no longer keep up with pen and paper! The 1st laptop I bought was a dud so I am now on new lap top #2. Hopefully its a keeper!
