I'm going to use two excuses for this:
1. College is lame and makes Lindsey's free time disappear.
2. Lindsey hasn't done anything remotely interesting lately.
While 1 still holds true, 2 no longer does!
Before we travel down that road, I'll just ramble on a bit about what I've been up to since the last update.
- I'm still in college and I haven't been killed by it yet. All of my classes are going quite well, especially Spanish (I mean, I hope it would after four years in high school, right?). Downside to it all is that I have to walk up this b!tch of a hill every day and I want to suggest that the college install a ski lift.
- I've changed my plans regarding my career. Instead of going for a four year biology degree with pre-vet courses then going to another college for another four years to be a veterinarian, I've decided to just be a veterinary technician. And no, it wouldn't be me just working with technology, I'd essentially be a nurse. Sure, I would run the tech, but I could also do minor surgeries, give shots, assist in surgery, do blood/fecal tests, etc. There's quite a lot that a vet tech does. In order to achieve my latest dream, I've applied to the Vet Tech Institute in Pittsburgh. It seems like a very good school and a place where I'd be quite happy (I'm not at my current college to be honest). They take animals from shelters and we work on them alongside ACTUAL veterinarians and all of the animals are adoptable to students! I'm still waiting to hear back from them. I've got my fingers crossed. It's kind of expensive and I'd have to live there, but it's something I really want to do.
- I am currently taking 10 mg of Lexapro each night before bed to rid me of my anxiety/depression. So far it's working very well and I am a lot more calm, happy, and focused. I do get some fatigue and really vivid/strange dreams (one night I dreamed I was a Siberian husky that could talk and had to rid the world of aliens with Harry, Ron, and Hermione from the Harry Potter series), but it's a lot better than being constantly worried and in a fog.
Now comes the fun:
This weekend was the Covered Bridge Festival and Shelby happens to live right next to one of the bridges on the tour, so she had a bake sale to get some cash from tourists and tourons. I had to make that last distinction because while there were idiots lurking around the bridges, the old people were adorable and I wanted to take them all home and feed them cookies. I love old people. Anyway, I decided to head over to Shelby's house (Cori and Kristen, who had to leave shortly after to go to work, came too) to keep her company and help hold down the fort. We managed to sell quite a lot of baked goods and saw some pretty interesting people ("Did he buy immigrants online?"). Once it started getting pretty cold out and the activity died down, we closed up shop, checked the inventory, made a list, went to the store, bought some more ingredients, and baked some more goodies. I couldn't manage to get up there today, but I'm sure the sale went very well.
That's all. I'll be back again though.
Oh, yeah! The subject of this blog? I've had the Inspector Gadget theme song stuck in my head all day.
Gluten-free cookies I bought for G-ma. I bought a pumpkin roll for me. :D
Cori breakdancing to attract customers.
Bahaha. Poor Beaner.
