Well my new years started off just fantastic. NOT. I got to ride Yankee exactly twice before I fell ill, then sprained my ACL tendon in my left knee, the same leg with my healing achilles tendon. Awesome.
But here’s to making GOALS and not RESOLUTIONS!
LIST 1 (back to listing, drat it), SCHOOL STUFF
- Finish my remaining semseter at Mizzou and figure out what-the-hell I am going to do for next year
- Study study study, all the effing time. Grades is money. Or is it time is money? Same diff.
- Try to get all I can form my classes, like knowledge wise
- Learn diffrent study techniques
- Stay off facebook whhile studying. FGEEz.
- Don’t be afraid to ask profs questions. They won’t bite. Orsome might….
- Try to make more friends….realize no one is perfect and everyone has issues. Sigh.
LIST 2, HORSES
- reach prelim level by the end of the showing season (sept/nov)
- compete in as many shows as possible, like as many as possible.
- renew membership to USEA
- take more trail rides
- try to have double clear rounds in all jumping phases
- break a 20% on dressage test (OMGeez)
- after eventing season, compete in dressage shows, up to 3rd level
- try to eliminate dressage test jitters
- make my braids perfect!
- school tables so much that yankee becomes less afraid of them
- work on my jumping position (ever since my injury, its been weak)
- continue to ride my horse in a way that will present him the best way possible
LIST 3, PERSONAL
- Lose the remaining 5-10 lbs I’ve gained and KEEP IT OFF!**
- remember to STAY RELAXED. There could be something worse, you could be dead.
- find a new job.
- try to become a better person.
- keep in touch with old friends, they are the best. Loves, lindz and Jodi (few others too )
- be a more grateful person
- be a better daughter and sister (getting all sentimental here)
- work on my something special no one gets to know what that means except me
- not spend as much on stupid shit, see above
- try to accept others FOR WHO THEY ARE!
**This is NOT a vanity thing, it is a health issue for me. A regular 5′9 girl should not weigh 165 lbs, even with all the muscling I have. it’s just wrong. Plus I feel gross all the time. I’ve already lost 10 of the 20lbs I would like to shed though. GO ME!
