I have a bad habit....
...of depending on odd things to get me threw hard times. Today I found out I am no longer an active member of Delta Theta Sigma Lil Sis and after locking myself in my room and crying for 3 hours I am still not okay with it. I think its bull shit and I don't see myself ever changing my mind about that. After all the effort I put in to it they take away what I depended on for the last 2 years of my life.

Also on the bad note I worked with Julip today and it was very exciting. This was the first time I got her out of her stall on my own and I just need to remember she is only two years old...don't expect so much. We had a hard time walking down the barn with the tractor being scarey, the jumps next to the indoor gate, the indoor gate, the front door, the classroom, the jumps and barrels in the arena all being something that will kill us. I got her to the arena and we started out good but then she got away from me twice and it took forever to catch her again. So we put a lounge line on her with a chain and she was good. I called it quit before she could totaly freak out again. Then I worked with her on tieing and being groomed in her stall. It went okay...we just looped the lead rope through the ring so if she pulled back it would just come out. I think we'll keep doing that for awhile.


I want to work on getting her feet more used to being picked up...she needs work on letting people mess with her ears...she needs to learn to want to walk with you on your terms not her own....and we are going to work on walking around the barn without trying to kill anyone. I need to have her able to walk, trot, stop, and back up on the lead by Friday....it could be interesting. Any help would be the the silver lining on a cloudy day.

2 year old Filly....soon to be a 3 year old Colt.....
Okay so classes at Wilmington College has officaly started for the Spring semester so that means Sierra and I are now both back at school not really ready to learn. Sierra has a class with me Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 3pm that is Intermediate Equitation...which hopefully is more challenging than the last two classes we had together. On top of that I am in the EQS350 class which is Breaking and Training. Well we met today to go over things and I am the only one in the class that hasn't started a 2/3 year old so I might be the unlucky one with things. I currently have a 2 year old bay filly, named Julip, that is super sweet. I was really excited to find out I would be working with her. She looks almost the same as Sierra so don't worry I'll post pics of her when I get the chance to get some. But the bad news is she will be going home in a week or so and a black 3 year old colt will take her place. Currently he is unsound to the point where he can't be worked with. So whenever he gets better he'll take her place. I'm not really excited about that but maybe good will come of it. I don't know much about either one of them currently, but I do at least know my filly's name. lol I'll probably be posting on here a lot now with updates about how this class is going....with of course some news on Sierra and how she is coming along in her class. Wish me luck!

Quick Complain!
Okay so today I go out to the barn to do my chores since I currently have two horses back at Lazy H on Partical Care...now ussaly the blankets people put on horses are their problems not the people who work out there but today for some reason they thought it was okay to take them off. First off I didn't even know my horses were allowed to go outside yet then I get there and they are out with NO blankets on! Not such a big deal with Sierra expect that she has no coat and I want to keep it that way but with Quincy its a HUGH deal! He is a grey almost white horse that LOVES to roll and its complete mud out in the fields...no grass. So I go out there and he is covered from head to tail in mud on both sides! Not cool! They won't be the blankets back on and I can't go back out there to take care of it myself and I'm upset about it. They e-mailed everyone and I made sure to reply asking them to please leave the blankets up to me, they are on for a reason! Quincy just had a sheet so he would have been fine and Sierra had a stable blanket that I'm glad it didn't get ruin but if I was told they were out of their little period of no turnout I would have personally taken care of it! okay enough.......

Why does....
...Sorority life feels like a job? I wish things were like last year...I miss how everyone was and all the good times we had. Things this year are just about getting community service done, having to go to these "get togethers" which are no fun and then no one every partying anymore because they are either "too old" or are to caught up in their boyfriends. This is bull shit...I'm not having fun anymore.


And on top of that I think I either just want to be alone for awhile or go home and be with the family....I might see clearer if I could

Dreams that keep coming back
So the last few nights or maybe for the last week or so...i have no idea when this started but I have been dreaming about this guy that I had (or maybe still have) a crush on. We hung out in the past, once we both crossed into Delta Theta Sigma and we tried to make a relationship out of what we had and it never worked. We tried for a year and a half or something like that. I am currently in a relationship with someone else and he just broke up with someone else. A lot of times I can't even keep what happened in my dreams seperate from what happened in real life. We still talk and he is just so nice and I feel like I shouldn't be having feelings for him. I feel like thats not fair to my boyfriend and its weird to dream about this guy and wake up next to someone that you are really dating. Ugh...I don't know what to do. So here is what my dream was about and what the internet had to say about it:

My dream was us being over at the DTS house with all of the other members all watching a movie (just to note where we were in the house there is no tv) and we were sitting next to each other. My boyfriend was in the crowd (he is also a member of DTS) but not near me. This guy and I were talking and laughing with each other and I remember feeling like I really wanted to kiss him and that he really wanted to also but we both knew it wasn't smart to try. He asked me about a real life event that happened and I told him just want happened and then I woke up. Short and sweet and now I'm all confused!!!

To Dream about a former crush:
To dream about a former crush, refers to that particular period in your life and what you were feeling. The former crush represents a point in time when you first had the crush on that person.

Laughing:
To dream that you are laughing, suggests that you need to lighten up and let go of your problems. Don't put so much pressure on yourself. Laughing is also a sign of joyous release and pleasure

Kiss:
If the dream ends just about you are about to kiss someone, indicates that you are unsure of how he or she really feels about you. You are looking for some sort of relationship with this person but you are not sure about how to go about achieving it.

Movie:
To dream that you are watching a movie, suggests that you are watching life pass you by. Perhaps you are living vicariously through the actions of others. Consider also how the movie parallels to situations in your waking life. Observe how the characters relate to you and how they may represent an aspect of yourself.

Flirting:
To dream that you are flirting or that someone is flirting with you, represents your need for intimacy and affection. You may be about to enter into a serious commitment or relationship in the near future.

Boyfriend:
To see your boyfriend in your dream, represents your waking relationship with him and how you feel about him


So yea...there ya go...help please!?

My Horses
Okay so my two friends and i had this mini arugument (or however u spell it) about my two horses that I currently have and how "danergously" close they are to each other. So since they don't believe my side and really didn't want to listen to what i had to say I came here to rant about it alittle...

Okay so I currently still own Sierra and i am leasing a thoroughbred gelding named Quincy. Quincy is so in love with Sierra is sad. I can work both of them without the other one, I can even take them to shows and show them with the other one still back at the trailer with no problem. We all went to a show last night together and while I had Sierra back in the show ring, Quincy was tied to the trailer with the other horse, Travis. Well Travis flips out over something stupid and gets away so therefore Quincy over reacts to the situation and pulls back on his lead till he finds himself tied (he HATES being tied....which we have discussed and taken care of...but since I was away something happened). Well at this point Quincy is to the point where we can't tie him to the trailer because he'll flip out. So once I am done with my class I find Quincy being held instead of tied to the trailer and asked what happened. I was told and was like okay whatever I'll take him back with Sierra and I. I tied Sierra to the tailer and just looped the lead through the tie on the trailer. He was nervous but stood for me. I decided since he was so nervous about the whole thing that I would take him and Sierra back to the show ring with me and the lady that owns Travis and just keep them there with us so we could watch Travis go and get other things taken care of. Things were fine after that. They stood quietly munching on some grass. I even wrapped Quincy's legs for the ride home without anyone holding on to him or anything. Well it starts to lightening and the rain is coming so Bobbi (the lady who owns Travis) and I decided we should go load Sierra and Quincy before it storms. Well Bobbi holds Quincy (who is nervous but under complete control) while I wrap Sierra's legs and get everything loaded up. Well Amber comes over to help (which I was really happy about at the time) and I say lets load Quincy first. He walks into the trailer and gets nervous but nothing out of the normal for him...we have loaded him before and he does it the same way everytime so when he stops and won't move forward...thats life...who cares. Well we get the butt bar up and then i go to tie him and well....he doesn't want to be tied! Go figure...I should have known after the problem earlier that the trailer would be a problem later....so I leave him untied so we can get Sierra in the trailer. He was normal as any other horse who is left in the trailer by themselves at night. He dances a little bit then he calls to Sierra. The same way Montana does to Sierra when Amber and I take them away...the same way Travis does to Sierra or Justin when we take them away. Nothing new! After I get her in the trailer he looks over the divider...because he isn't tied! I moved his head so I could walk in there and he moved it...no fuse. Once I got her in and we got the ramp up...I tied Quincy and it was the end of any problems. But once I moved the trailer to the barn to pick up Nancy, Amber goes off about how danergous Quincy is without Sierra. I was hurt by the whole deal. Then Nancy backs her up and say she agrees with her. Okay whatever. They want me to split my two horses up so they can learn to be apart. No..I am not doing that. They have problems coming in from the field because of how we do it. So does half of the 41 horses we deal with but all of a sudden mine are the worst. Bull shit. Sorry but it is.

Montana calls to Sierra and throws a fit everytime we trailer him. Maybe we should spilt him and Sierra up.

Travis threw a hugh fit in the trailer when we tried to load him and Justin up to take them home last night. Maybe we should split them up.

Cab (TN Walker) tries to kill you whenever you tried to lead him out of any door and out of any gate. Maybe we should just keep him in his stall forever.

Patches (a 3 year old paint) tries to kick you whenever u go into his stall to clean it...we should just keep his stall dirty all the time.

Nothing is different between my two horses and any other two horses at the barn. Quincy has a tieing problem which I told people a 100 times and they are still surpised to find him being a butt when something happens. Sierra always calls to other horses from our barn when she is at shows...why is it any different when its Quincy she is calling to instead of Travis or Montana, or another mare that happens to be from our barn. I just don't get it. If they really don't like it they both can stop riding Quincy, they both can stop asking for rides when they want to go to a show or go trail riding. I can play fair too.

Thank You
So this isn't really ment for any one that reads this but i just wanted to say what I can't say to the person I saw yesterday so here it goes...

Thank you for yesterday....it made me really realize that i might just need/want you more than i really wanted to admit. It was two months that i went without seeing you and i went around thinking i don't want to be with you any more and i don't need you to make me happy. I thought i was ready for someone new and a relationship that could get serious well i was wrong. Things have changed and I think for the good. You kissed me like you ment it and kissed me first. You never done that before. You sat and had a conversation about my life with me and didn't change the subject or walk away. Yea petty but wow I'm so impressed. You stopped nagging me about the things I told you I would never change. You laughed with me when i got the giggles and couldn't stop laughing. You couldn't stop smiling at me when i left your house. I felt like u really wanted me...wanted me more than her. I only hope she leaves and never comes back so i can have you forever. I don't care anymore how old you are or what my friends think of you because they just don't know you like me. I want to sit down and have this conversation about all the little things that made me happy with yesterday but i'm not sure when or if thats ever going to happen so for now here is where I thank you for making me the happiest girl in the world yesterday!

Sometimes I wonder....
If there is really something wrong with me. I try to make things work and be a happy person but I am finding it harder and harder to do every day. Things here at school are just not like I thought they would be. I can't find anyone to live with...everyone knows that i want to room with them and that it would be cool to have an apartment with them but they go behind my back and don't include me...am I that bad to live with? Then its been since my junior year in high school since i had a real relationship. yes i know stupid but what the hell is wrong with me? I can get a one night stand here and there and maybe a few phone calls after that but thats it. I think i found someone and i never really did..i'm just that girl that you want to tell all your friends that you went home with. I'm beginning to be afraid to go out because i don't want to meet someone and think this could work out and it never does. Its becoming harder and harder to find friends that want to stick next to me and harder and harder to trust guys enough to even want to give them the time of day. I feel like I'm better off just hiding out in my room hoping that no one will come and play me again. I just want roommates for next semester and a decent guy to respect me enough to see if we could work out. I don't know what i'm doing wrong and I don't know how to talk to anyone about it without feeling really annoying. I thought i was a good friend....i thought i was a good girlfriend....but right now all I think I am is a loner.

Just need to get some things off my chest
Okay so I know I'm not good about posting in blogs or what not but a lot has happened in the past few weeks and its all just bottled up. I feel like I just need to say things without anyone's judgement or opinion so I'm coming here for that. If people want to comment thats fine but just keep in mine that this post was just to make myself feel better because i wrote how i feel down.

So anyways I'm pissed about my guy situation because it isn't fair anymore and I don't know what I want. I have Jeff back at home that just can't figure out how to be true to anyone anymore so I'm convinced unless some drastic changes happen we are done for good. After saying that though I feel like thats not the turth because I'm to emotionaly into the relationship (friendship or what not) to keep my mind on one idea with him. Next I have a guy everyone calls New York in my life that I really liked then was taken away by a girl that doesn't deserve him. He is to sweet of a guy to be going after a girl like her. All she does is play them and make their world crushed. Last night I saw them together at the party I went to and she was playing her stupid games and he looked like a puppy that wants to be loved but no one wanted. She hit on other guys, danced on other guys and even kissed other guys in front of him and all he did was stand there with this sad look on his face and let it happened. I even tried to pull him away for one dance just to hope it would make his night somewhat better but all I got was a no and a disconnected feeling from him. I guess that ones a lost cause intil he gets the nerve to walk away from her and not go back. Then there is this guy I have been hanging out with for maybe a couple of weeks and he is really cool. He rides on the equestrain team with me and lives in the hallway next to mine. We hang out and go to dinner together all the time....but he is definaly a player and a ladies man all the way. I'm not sure how he feels about me so I'm just waiting for things to happen. I don't want to go for it and it turn out to be something stupid so for now I'm enjoying the friendship we have and maybe one day it'll turn into something. Thats all the guy drama in my life...I just wish things would work out and be normal for once but I guess beggers can't be choosers. lol

Um...Sierra is still up at school with me...sometimes I'm really glad she is while other times I just want to take her back home and not bring her back. She is going home with me in a week for our winter break so I'm really really looking forward to that. I can't wait to show people all the new stuff we learned and how well she is doing in listening to me when we jump. We haven't worked on our dressage as much as I would have liked but thats because no one knows dressage up here and in my class with her we do everything except that. I am working on it this week with her so when we go home we can take some more lessons. Also her tail has grown lots which is super exciting and I'm hoping she doesn't rip it out like last time it grew out. She also got all new blankets that are really cool. They are the rider's international layering system. She got a fleece dress sheet, a heavy stable blanket, and a turnout sheet. She has no winter coat at all (thanks to the horses here living under lights) so these blankets are coming very much handy!

Well I have lab I must be getting to so thats my post for this time. Thanks for reading if you made it all the way through! I guess this is bye till next time!

New Dream!
Okay so I had this dream last night that was pretty weird and different for me. The dream was that I was getting a tattoo by one of the guys off the tv show Maimi Ink. The tattoo was of an eagle over a cross and I was getting it on the back of my neck, right under my hair line. Okay so I looked up a few of the meanings off of this web site and here are what they mean:

Cross: To see a cross in your dream, signifies suffering, martyrdom, death, and/or sacrifice. Perhaps your dream is telling you that you have a cross to bear. Ask yourself what is causing you to suffer or what is causing you great difficulties.

Eagle: To see an eagle in your dream, symbolizes nobility, pride, fierceness, freedom, superiority, courage, and powerful intellectual ability. Eagles also indicate self-renewal. You will struggle fiercely and courageously to realize your highest ambitions and greatest desires.

Neck: To see your neck in your dream, signifies the relationship between the mind/mental and the body/physical. It represents willpower, self-restriction and your need to control your feelings and keep them in check. Consider the familiar phrase, "don't stick your neck out" which serves as a warning against a situation.

Fame: To see famous people in your dream, signifies an increase to your prosperity and honor.

Tattoo: To dream that you have tattoos, represents individuality and the desire to stand out in a crowd. You want to be unique and different from everybody else, particularly if you do not have any tattoos in real life. Consider also what the tattoo is.

Okay so thats the main points I could look up. So I really have no clue! lol Help me out :-D

DTS Lil Sis
Okay so I know its been a long while since I updated my journal but I really feel like I need to start posting again. Things at school are out of hand. I'm pledging for a sorority and I'm not 100% sure i'm into this anymore. I thought it would bring good times with good laughs and a whole bunch of friends and take up most but not all of my free time. Well as I'm seeing it right now its taking up every little tiny bit of my free time and those good times with good laughs are being filled with work and tears. Those new friends are not great..they just have to tell me how much worst their lives are. When they said you can talk to us I really didn't expect to get 4 different "Well my life is worst than that". I'm not sure what to do. Can I make it through three more weeks of pledging to get to be part of this group of people? Or am I just better off quitting and saying at least I tried? I'm not sure. I don't know what to do. The actives seems pretty nice but I'm not sure if I'll ever have as close as friends as I did in high school. With everything going on I can't even have time for myself and I cry so much. I know this was a depressing update but I gotta get it all out. Thanks for reading,

First IHSA Horse Show
So this weekend I went down to Maimi University and rode at my first Intercolliect Horse Show Association show. It was a blast. I rode in Novice Equatation on the Flat both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday I rode a horse named JR, who was this big bay gelding that made me look even smaller. We had a great round other than my problem asking for the canter the first way around. We placed 5th out of 7, which I'm proud of seeing as it was my first time ever getting on a horse I have never ridden and showing it with no practice. Then on Sunday I rode a horse named Charly, she was this little black horse that was worn out by the time I got to her. We had another great round...with some slow trot problems but we placed 4th out of 7. So overall it was a great weekend and a very cool experience. My next IHSA show is November 11th and 12th at Morehead State University. Wish me luck!!

A Good Song
Well, me an' my lady had our first big fight,
So I drove around 'til I saw the neon light.
A corner bar, an it just seemed right.
So I pulled up.

Not a soul around but the old bar keep,
Down at the end an' looking half asleep.
An he walked up, an' said : "What'll it be?"
I said: "The good stuff."

He didn't reach around for the whiskey;
He didn't pour me a beer.
His blue eyes kinda went misty,
He said: "You can't find that here.

"'Cos it's the first long kiss on a second date.
"Momma's all worried when you get home late.
"And droppin' the ring in the spaghetti plate,
"'Cos your hands are shakin' so much.
"An' it's the way that she looks with the rice in her hair.
"Eatin' burtn suppers the whole first year
"An' askin' for seconds to keep her from tearin' up.
"Yeah, man, that's the good stuff."

He grabbed a carton of milk an' her poured a glass.
An' I smiled an' said: "I'll have some of that."
We sat there an' talked as an hour passed,
Like old friends.

I saw a black an' white picture an' it caught my stare,
It was a pretty girl with bouffant hair.
He said: "That's my Bonnie,
"Taken 'bout a year after we were wed."

He said "Spent five years in the bar,
"When the cancer took her from me.
"But I've been sober three years now,
"'Cos the one thing stronger than the whiskey:

"Was the sight of her holdin' my baby girl.
"The way she adored that string of pearls,
"I gave her the day that our youngest boy, Earl,
"Married his high school love."
"An' it's a new tee-shirt saying: 'I'm a Grandpa'.
"Bein' right there as our time got small,
"An' holdin' her hand, when the Good Lord called her up,
"Yeah, man, that's the good stuff."

He said: "When you get home, she'll start to cry.
"When she says: 'I'm sorry,' say: 'So am I.'
"An' look into those eyes, so deep in love,
"An' drink it up.
"'Cos that's the good stuff.
"That's the good stuff.

Sometimes....
I just really don't enjoy living with a whole floor of girls. I'm sick of dealing with all the drama and I hate it how I feel like I'm stuck with no place to go. The neighbors suck well only on one side and only one of them and I feel like I do at home sometimes...only now I don't have the family to be able to go sit with. Ugh......sometimes I just need to get away. I just don't know how here....
