Who Is This Girl?

"This Girl" is a sci-fi, period drama, political drama, and detective drama enthusiast. In the real world, she is a veterinary technician who plans to earn her Bachelor's in Veterinary Nursing in the UK (and remain permanently, visas permitting). Future career plans include specialization in emergency/critical care & trauma. (Or dentistry, because my dentistry teacher was/is a saucy minx who likes making me fall in love with unexpected things.)

So why do you want to move to the UK so badly, anyway? Because the opportunities to study and practice vet nursing at degree level in the United States suck. And by "suck" I mean "do not exist". Also, the UK also has coherent, nation-wide regulation of veterinary nurses, which the US oh so very much does not.

Any questions? Post 'em in the comments!
