Balancing Life is Hard

Balancing life is so hard. All the time. I have so many things to do, yet I never know what I actually do in a day and I am always so busy. There are so many things I should be doing but I never have time for them. Life is busy. I work. I go... Continue Reading →

We Miss Poles and Jumping

Like I said last week, my mom isn't working because of coronavirus so she's come to the barn with me to do a few photo shoots. Doing the photo shoots, even though my ponies are not in shape at all, I wanted to try and get some pictures of us doing what we love: jumping... Continue Reading →

Take a Breath

I have so much to do today. This week. This month. School, work, horses, personal. I have goals for all of them. There are things that need done. There are things I want done. Yesterday was a good day. I got a lot of stuff done. School and work stuff. Today I was going to... Continue Reading →

Things Feel Weird

By the time I post this it might not even be relevant anymore. Maybe it will be more relevant. Who knows? Things are changing so fast in the world right now.
