Today is my first day that I'll be working at Devonshire Veterinary Clinic. I'm a little nervous... but VERY happy. This is a really good job for someone like me. I get to wake up fairly late (gotta be up by 1pm), I get to have all night to myself (I get off at, I think, 8pm), and I get to work with puppies and kitties and animals alllll day! ^_^ I mean.... PART of my job is walking dogs and giving attention to kitties! :] How awesome is that? Pretty awesome, if you ask me. ^_^
I don't really mind wearing scrubs... it makes me feel like I have a real job. haha. I'm not sure why... it just seems more official... like I'm doing something important. :P Let me dream. hehe. Larry says I should get a stethoscope to wear just for show. I think it would be kinda cute. haha.
The only parts of the job that I know I'm going to hate are helping the vets Euthenize the animals (I have to hold the animals down while they do it :[ ) and cremating the animals (that i do on my own. D:) I'm sure there will be plenty of days where I call poor Matt bawling my eyes out and speaking incoherantly... but I guess it comes with the job. I just keep telling myself that I HAVE to do it to help the animals. They are in pain... and I'm helping to save them from a miserable life. *Shall probably end up reciting mantras every day* I'm sure I won't like seeing all the people crying either... it'll make me really sad... BUT... seeing all the happy people whose animals have gotten better will be really rewarding. I dig that kinda thing. :]
There are lots of perks to working there too. After working there six months I get two of my animals vaccinated for free each year and get free heart worm preventative. After that every animal of mine that I bring in is half off. That's REALLY good for me. It will save me a shit ton of money, too. Once I get moved I want to get a puppy... so I will probably just wait till I've been working there six months or so to get a puppy... that way I can be absolutely sure that he/she will have all of its immunizations and heart worm medicine. It will save me a lot of money and save my pets a lot of pain. :] After six months I also get paid holidays off. That is BITCHIN. Excellent! Also, after working there a year I get a week's paid vacation. WOO! That makes me super happy. hehe.
The job is only part time for now... but Mabel (the lady who hired me) says that they are adding two more exam rooms, another Veterinarian, and a bigger boarding area onto the clinic. After that, I will most likely be offered a full time position. That would be really good. :]
I'm so excited for this! :D
