Graduation is less than a week away. Of course, I’m excited but it’s pretty sad to think that this chapter in my life is coming to an end. Veterinary school is difficult, but it has been my entire life for the last four years. I’ve met so made so many different friends and I’ve become very comfortable with life the town. After all of my other graduations, despite everyone’s best intentions nobody really keeps in touch. I can honestly count the number of people I still talk to from before vet school on one hand. As a result of this, the thought of leaving here and moving onto somewhere new is frightening.
Since this will be my first job, I just don’t really know what to think. I’ve got so many unanswerable questions constantly floating around in my head. What if I don’t like my new job? Will I actually be good at it? What if I don’t like the area? How will I adapt to living without anyone? There are just so many questions that I have no clue how to answer. I won’t know if it’s the right fit and if I’ll be happy until I get there. No matter where I go I know I will make the most of it. If the first job doesn’t work out it will only be for a year and then I can move onto a better opportunity.
On the hand, I will finally be a practicing veterinarian. Everything I’ve ever worked for is about to become reality. I’ve been in school since I was like five, so it’ll be nice to finally get out in the real world and start putting everything to use.
