|I really, really like my cat.|
|He seriously posed this way.|
I worked New Years Eve, like always. We're only there until six & I always take the stance that the night has just begun & we can go out. We stayed home. Watched the ball drop (which I realized is INSANELY anti-climatic) & drank mini bottles of champagne. If how you're New Year's is spent is how your year will go, I'll take being comfortable, warm, happy, & slightly buzzed over anything.
|Oh hey. Safari Sammi, here.|
I start school on Monday. Which, probably isn't that big of a deal except I haven't been in school for a while. It took me a long time to decide what I wanted. I went from journalist to translator to hair dresser (most unlikely) to public relations to pharmacist to nurse to finally, zoologist. How did I land there? Easy. I reminded myself that from age 7 until high school that all I wanted was to work with animals. I was pretty discouraged in high school when people told me all the math I would have to take, so I scrapped it. But, at 26 I realized that this is what I am meant for. I am meant to scoop elephant poo & cuddle with baby tigers. I am meant to spray off penguins and lay down hay for the rhinos. I haven't completely decided if I'll go onto vet school after that (ultimate dream). I figured I'd cross that bridge in a year or two. But, animals. That's it. That's been it forever.
I am pretty insanely nervous about going back. The idea of math paralyzes me. The thought of professors calling on me & I don't know the answer makes me want to vom. I have a great support system, though. I have David who is super good at math & my family & friends cheering me on. I know in a few weeks, once I get into the swing of things I'll be okay. But for now, I'm losing sleep, tearing my thumbs apart, & freaking out every second.
I'll try to be better at this, but please be patient! I'm still getting the hang of all this. I'm excited about everything 2014 has is store for me & I am even more excited to share it!
