My time is nearly done here...

Tomorrow is my last day working at the center. I have had a great time and I have learned so much. I really do love this area of Wisconsin and I hope to come back to visit soon.

I've been thinking about where my life is going in the next year or so. I've applied to the Peace Corps, but with the budget cuts they have been suffering from I am not keeping my hopes up about being nominated. I can't help but have second thoughts about it also. The great thing about Peace Corps is that it is a program that has no age limitations. I can do this any time in my life.

Not having a job lined up before I go back to Fairbanks is a little irritating to me. I have applied to the Fairbanks North Star Borough last month, so far paperwork is still going through HR so I don't know if I have been chosen or not. I've applied to Princess and a Vet clinic. Hopefully I'll have a job within a week or so. If not I might have to resort back to car rental least Budget offers benefits.

Next month I am doing the national novel writing month. The goal is to write 50,000 words in a month. I am hoping the deadline will push me into actually finishing something. I will keep you all updated.

For now, I am going to enjoy my final day here, watch some horror movies for Halloween and prepare for the long couple days of air travel.

It snowed today in Minocqua. It was hovering around 30 so not too cold. I have been enjoying it quite a bit! Tomorrow I may be going to Lake Superior. Look forward to pictures from that trip.

I have been very lazy as of late in regards to blogging. So I thought I would tie you guys over with a collage of pictures from my time here at the wildlife center. It will be only a week before I am back in Fairbanks and getting on with the rest of my life. I have had a wonderful time here in Wisconsin and I have learned so much.

Next week if all goes well, I will be visiting Lake Superior with a friend from the cheese shop. Yes I made friends at the cheese shop. ^_^ I will make sure and share pictures of that experience also. In the mean time, take care and I will see you all soon! Much love!

Bear Release

Today we released four of six 10 month old black bears. I have some pictures of the release in my album HERE . In a week from today we will be releasing 5 juvenile bald eagles.

Its been relatively busy with closing winter projects, and I've been trying to write some articles for the quarterly newsletter here at the center. The autumn colors here in Minocqua have been absolutely amazing. I have missed a proper fall for the past five years since I moved to Fairbanks. I didn't realize how much I missed it. However, I do miss Fairbanks and everyone there. It won't be long and I'll be back home!
