Perhaps I have some explaining to do

I've been listening to some songs with very strong messages about the world (World on Fire, Mother Father etc.) and looking at photos on my computer I had all but forgotten about. It really leaves me in a funny mood. Thinking about how my mentality has changed through the years, how my friends have changed, how I don't even really know some of them anymore, not really anyway. But most of all how in the world can I even begin to make my imprint on the world, and in what way would I like to do it? I think that I only really began to struggle with this question after I came back from China, and even more so after graduating from college.

For a second I actually felt guilty. I couldn't help but think, I'm in South Carolina working at an Animal Clinic, I'm not doing anything to work towards a global goal. I do kind of wish I had the guts to go in New Orleans, or Indonesia, or other areas of the world with a larger problems. But the reason I am here makes sense. I needed to take a first step, in any direction. I needed to prove to myself that I could survive not being a boomerang child and living off my parents. And I'm writing all this here because that is exactly what this blog is going to be about. Of course it will probably be just my friends reading this to keep up with what I'm doing, but I figure I will probably end up with a handful of interesting threads and stories as I work to try to figure out where to go next.
Horray for a long weekend!

Friday was complete insanity. I came into work expecting to float between being a receptionist and kennels considering it was the day before a long weekend so we were going to be packed, then around 10 till 9 one of my friends tells me that I am in fact assigned to a vet. So I have a very short time to finish what I am doing and mentally pepare myself to be working with her for the whole day.

I think I sat down for maybe fifteen minuites all day. There was one point when we were in two rooms at once and a third room was called for us (we only have four rooms.) I started putting stickes with the room number on the files so I could keep track of who was where. I screwed up a few times in small ways, but I think I am getting better at being a technician. No terribly interesting stories though.

By the end of the day I was completly wiped out, so even though I was suppose to take one of the kittens home, I was too tired to get the litter and food and all to bring him home. So I went in on Saturday to grab the little guy. I just took him back to the clinic a few minutes ago. I miss him already, but in observing him over the weekend and realizing the amount of attention he is going to need, I don't think that I have the capacity to raise a little guy yet. Who knows, looking at his silly face stuck in that little cage I might change my mind after I finish cleaning the little stains he left on the carpet.


Leaving Xanga

I recently changed locations after spending almost a year at home after graduating from college, and I think it is time that I changed locations in the internet world also. As I do not have time to maintain more than one weblog I will only use this one for my own updates, stories and rants. Besides this one is more accessable to other people for comments and the like.

First post finished. Now I get to play with colors and the like, then I can start real posts.
