Cedar Sap and Fences, no it’s not a country song. Rather it’s what makes up the week of this college student. Along with road trips, exams, and sharing the stories I have to tell.
The six weeks following Spring Break generally consist of exams, papers, and projects, but I lucked out this semester. I really only have one paper and one project to complete, much easier than the four 10-page papers that were due this time last semester. I really lucked out these first two weeks with nothing due for any classes. Have no fear though, I am finding plenty to fill my time. This week I am back on the job-search trail, heading for the Texas Panhandle for an interview and some feedyard visits.
This weekend I decided to take advantage of the warmer weather to spend some time outside clearing fencerows. Since I have been in college, I have resorted to working for different professors, producers, and individuals in the area instead of having a steady job in town. This allows me to make my own schedule, make extra room for studying when needed, and spend some much-needed time out of town. I have done a little bit of everything working freelance like fence building, feeding horses and cattle, yard work, cleaning up pasture brush, and even learning a little about house construction. It has made for a very interesting four years.
