Hopes and Ambitions

As some of you may know, and many of you may not, my main goal in life/career plan/wish is to become a vet. Unfortunately this is very really really difficult, almost impossible. Just a little figure for you, Bristol University has 10 applicants for every one vet place. So 100 people get a place out of 1000 applicants- (that took so long to find on google!) So yeah it's crazy competitive.

Anyway more to the point, if you want to stand a chance of getting in you have to have loads of work experience so that's what I'm up to this week, working in a vets :) It's pretty interesting but does get boring as there's a lot of waiting around. I've seen some really good operations and all the staff are lovely, it's just the awkward standing around for over an hour, with nothing to do, that gets a bit tedious!

So I apologise for not posting so much this week, believe it or not, doing nothing is very tiring! Just being on my feet all day wears me out plus I'm starting to get more stressed about finding farm placements for next year. So far I've done 3 weeks in vet practices (including this week) and a week lambing on a farm so I'm not too behind but it's still stressful!

I hope you're all Ok and enjoying the summer, I'd better go and get some rest ready for my early start tomorrow, ahh working life :P

Thanks for reading,

  1. It sounds like hard work and alot of determination and dedication, but if you really want to be a vet you might just have to stick at it! :) x

  2. That's a lot of hard work. It's like trying to get into medical school, I suppose (sigh). You need a lot of experience.

    Best of luck to you! It sounds like you really want to be a vet and with that determination, I'm sure you will.

  3. best wishes in your aspiration of becoming a vet!
    yes, do please get some sleep! i should probs be getting more of that myself!

  4. Hope it's going okay :)

  5. Thank you all for your comments :) I'll keep working hard, I suppose if you really want something that's what you have to do :) x
