Finals are here again. Not that I've been around much this semester anyway. I'm actually not travelling like a crazy person over break this time so I swear I will work on art I owe people. 

And I will bring back my spare tablet pen nibs so I can actually draw again without having to fight with a trackpad... the main reason art has been so nonexistent this semester. 

Camera is still broken so probably no photos anytime in the near future. I'm thinking of buying myself a camera when I'm finally done on the island as a making it to clinics present to myself, so yeah.. 

The forge is totally functional, just having trouble making molds on the island. We have ordered supplies so hopefully next semester we'll be able to cast some things. I already have been requested to make cute animal themed bottle openers, D&D minis, models of a few people's dogs, and a unicorn hood ornament for my friend's car. We'll see how it works out. (:

Other than that, Ender has been rocking out agility lately. I might share some videos soon. 

Sven has added leg weaves to his repertoire but I haven't had nearly as much time to work on tricks as I would like this semester. We've been doing lots of leash work and with any luck I'll be able to walk him soon. 

Foster dog Drakken is going back to the states to his forever home in a few days, so that's exciting.

Overall this was a really good semester. Got to do lots physicals, a practical exam, and anesthetize a dog and a sheep. Made me feel like a real doctor. Also Diagnostic Imaging class has been awesome which is cool.

Some of my amazing island friends got together and built an aluminum forge over the past few weeks. 
Here is the result of the first few firings. We now have several pounds of aluminum ingots. 
Best/ most fun way to recycle used soda cans ever!!!
