Boot camp time

I have decided that if I want to be a great rider, I need to be in perfect shape. There fore, no more snacks, and I am walking/jogging 2-3 miles a day, starting yesterday. Cutting back on candy, and drinking 8 glasses of water and 1-2 cups of milk a day. I should loose 2 pounds a week. I'm not saying that I'm fat, it's just that I want to be a little thinner, so I can post better, jump better, look better in my saddle, etc. So there you have it. My health update for the day! I am getting caught up in school, so that is a good thing. I can't wait for summer time! Summer is my all time favorite season. (And its awesome that it is the longest season!) I am now starting up piano lessons again, so that will be keeping me quite busy.

Peace out!

I'm so lucky

I've really been thinking about how lucky I am to know fantastic people like the ones that are in my life. I mean, without them, I wouldn't be where I am now. I might not show it, but I am truly greatful for the people who I am so honored to be friends with. They are all so special to me, and I can't imagine life without them! Thank you everyone, for putting up with my annoying, crazy ways.

Animal sanctuary...

I now know what I want to do down the road, when I am really successful and have a bunch of money that I can rely on. I want to start an animal sanctuary, where anyone can drop any kind of unwanted animal, and I can try to rehome it. If it can't be rehomed, then it can stay at the sanctuary until the end of its days, or until it finds a home. It would be so awesome to go on rescue missions, and be able to rehabilitate all kinds of animals, but mostly small animals, horses, farm animals, dogs, and cats. (If I came across a zebra, I swear I would take it in a heartbeat)  It would have barns, pastures with shelter, and lots of paddocks with shelter. I would also have a few employees maybe, and some adoption events. I hope that this can happen!

Warm and toasty!

NOT! I am the complete opposite of warm and toasty, thank you very much. Yesterday, I rode when it was 19 degrees. Not to bad actually, but I got wind burn from trotting so much, jumping, and cantering. Not to mention Red was a little spookier than usual, and I almost crashed into another rider when I was cantering. Thankfully, the other rider was much more experienced than I am, and she would never let anyone crash with her. I cannot put I words how much my fellow riders mean to me! :)

Is this blog really that good?

So I just checked my page views... 33 page views, today! Yesterday I got zero, and today, 33?! Honestly guys! I am flattered. I will be posting way more, and at least once daily, so expect more posts! I am also going to try adding more pictures to my posts, and writing longer posts.

Alaskan viewers?

I saw that I have some viewers in Alaska.. I just want to say that I am so excited to see that people in one of the most beautiful places on earth are actually reading these very words! I have always wanted to visit Alaska, but I can't afford a trip, and don't really have the time. (Excuses excuses...) I will visit it one day, and I hope that you people are doing well!


And I go back to December all the time...

It is December, as you all know. I am thinking of my loved ones that spent last Christmas laughing and having a good time, but now they will have to watch from above. I am writing down everything that I am grateful. For a chance to be part of the best thing in the world, horses. To be alive, and healthy. To have a roof over my head, food on my table, and shoes on my feet. I am also comforted that I have family that supports me through everything. I plan to spend Christmas with my family, and have a pleasant Christmas dinner. (Please note that this is a late post, and I have had it in my draft box since last month...)



I don't know if I told any of you, but I have two awesome gerbils! They are around 4 years old ( That is the average life span for a gerbil ) and they are still going strong! I just introduced their wheel that has been absent for a year and a half. They are still monkeying around on it like little baby gerbs. I got them when they were a few months old, and they have grown 4-5 inches since then! I love them both to death! They are my little gerby werbies. My little muffins. My little jadey wadey and dutchy wutchy. I'm quite weird...



I have been thinking college a lot lately. I think I want to go to St. Mary of the woods, but the tuition fees are $25k+... I would have to get a really scholarship, but with me playing piano, and being a decent rider, I think I might have a good chance! I sure hope so, because I really want to join this college. I am not sure what I want to major in yet though, so I have to get thinking about that...  I think I want to do something equine oriented, but I could see myself doing something along the lines of journalism, because I love to type and write. Any suggestions?

On a different note, I had a good ride today. Jumped, cantered bareback, rode all over the place outside, and plus, a bunch of friends came over and rode with me! :D

I hope everyone had a good Christmas, and is having an excellent new year! I know I certainly am... Awesome riding, getting really focused in school, and I can see myself turning into a new person, the person I so longed to be for so long...

Peace, and I hope you are having a very good new year!
