Wow! Almost an entire year has passed since my last post, and for that I am sorry. The past year has been crazy and so much has happened so I’ll do my best to quickly get y’all back up to speed with what’s been going on.
The 2012-2013 school year was my senior year of college so I’m happy to say that I’m now a college graduate holding a Bachelors of Science with two majors; Wildlife Biology and Captive Wildlife Care and Education. My senior year was crazy between 16 credit hours; an extra 3 credits that I sat in on voluntarily (without receiving the credits as I wasn’t officially enrolled in the course); and my senior thesis but it was a great last year for sure. I graduated on May 18th (as Valedictorian by the way ;) ) and have since been at home getting things ready for the next chapter, which is, of course, the best news of all!
Earlier this year, the Cheetah Conservation Fund offered me a full-time position as a research technician! I obviously accepted (as the new blog title takes into account), so tomorrow evening I’ll be headed off to Namibia to start my first job post-graduation. Words can’t describe my excitement and I can’t imagine anywhere else I’d rather be. Every trip to Namibia previously has always had an end date to which I regrettably counted the days. This time however, there is no set end date and that is a great feeling for sure. I will try to make updates regularly (definitely no year log gaps this time!) about what’s going on in Namibia so I hope you’ll all follow along, as it’s going to be great!
