More of a random post, but a list of various events:

New Moon:  I was lucky enough to see this movie with two awesome friends the day after it was released.  Theatre was packed, and they even opened up a second theatre for the showing!  It was a lot of fun being there with all the other Twilight fans.  And the director did an infinitely better job on this one than the first movie.  I felt like it followed the book much better, and there was no wasting 10 minutes of lying in a field staring at each other.  Very awesome.  (And for the record:  I was Team Jacob before he was hot.  Just sayin’.)

In other news, Madeline Pickens is once influencing policies at the OSU vet school.  Someone really needs to tell that woman that having money doesn’t make you intelligent.  I just don’t understand why one person can have more influence than a multitude of highly trained (emphasis on the TRAINED) professionals who deal with public health and animal welfare issues.  (Well, I understand it, but it’s embarrassing.)  Heaven forbid controversial issues be driven more by facts and investigation than opinionated millionaires.  I wonder how PETA feels about Madeline Pickens’ race horses.  (Or more importantly, how they would feel if she wasn’t rich.)

Lastly:  prayers for my dear friend Stacy who recently experienced an unspeakable tragedy.  She is a beautiful, intelligent, strong woman who should not have been made to face such saddness.  Sending prayers and love her way.

Until next time…

Since I’m un-officially done with my 3rd year (woohoo!!!!!!), this post will just be a conglomeration of random thoughts as I spend time NOT studying and finally being able to relax.  So enjoy!

-School:  Awards banquet was tonight.  Surprisingly, I had an absolute blast!!!!!  I met the coolest woman who was the pure embodiment of how I want to be when I grow older.  Outspoken, lively, loving life, not afraid to share her opinions — she was amazing.  I only wish I’d been able to sit at her table and talk to her more.  I could have spent hours with her.  I wound up getting one award for ZEW (zoo, exotics, and wildlife) preceptor/conferences, which was really cool.  I wasn’t expecting it at all, but it was a wonderful surprise.  I did get to sit with Dr. Ketz, which is always enjoyable.  So overall, it was really a nice night.  Not having a test tomorrow was an added bonus.

-Love:  I get to see my wonderful husband in 5 days!  It’s been way too long and I’m excited to finally be seeing him for the first time since Christmas!  I’m really looking forward to a nice relaxing trip, getting to visit good friends, and mostly just getting away from the toxic school environment that has been weighting me down for so long.

-Friends:  Went on a shopping trip with Melissa yesterday.  Oh so much fun.  And I have a problem with makeup and body stuff.  This was already common knowledge, but it was rather obvious I haven’t been really shopping in awhile.  Oops…..

-Life:  Got my hair done today for the first time in awhile.  It’s darker and redder than the last couple of times, but I still like it.  Plus, since it’s red, it will fade rather quickly, and then I can go from there.  I’m not complaining, though.  I really love it.  I was in dire need of a deep condition too, since I haven’t had anything done since last semester, and it was rather obvious that my hair was desperate for something.

-Animals:  Not much going on in this front.  My dad’s bunny was diagnosed with cancer last week and went under surgery to remove a tumor that wound up being about the size of a softball.  Nevertheless, she is recovering quite well, despite having chewed her outside stitches out.  Hopefully she’ll still be around for a little longer, but it was nice going home over Easter weekend to see her since I don’t know when I’ll be able to visit again.  Life is, as you can imagine, emptier without little Luna, but I am dealing.  I’ve got ideas of how to keep her memory alive, so perhaps there will be an update about that soon.

Other Random:  not sure how alphainventions.com managed to direct traffic to my blog, but I’m not complaining.  Surely my life has to be interesting to more than the 2-3 consistent readers.  😉

Alright, off to go………oh wait, I don’t have to study tonight!  HAHAHAHA!!!!
