What to Expect....?




Happy New Year, everyone!

These are just random pictures of Gronemeyer, Genevieve, and Huey...the hamster...not mine...I'm sitting him...anyway....

I'm not big into New Year's resolutions...I think those are for people older then me...no offense, that was just a statement. Anyway, I was thinking about things I'd like to achieve this year. Some goals, in no particular order:

  1. Continue to enjoy violin and practice and get better....this is, actually, top of the list for a reason...lately it seems even harder then usual for me to want to practice, and for me to enjoy violin...this sounds so pity-party-ish, but it's kind of annoying when the same people always get picked for the harder groups and things...it's just, idk, not very supportive....
  2. Do a trail-trial with Daisy. Lydia is also interested in doing one with me, but we have to have an adult to ride with us...soooo I asked Jean and she said she'd do one! (Sorry, Lydia, I forgot to tell you she said yes ;-)) Trail trials are pretty much that you go somewhere with your horse and have to ride a trail in a certain amount of time...but the time isn't THAT big of a deal. You have to get through obstacles like water crossings, bridges, gates, maybe jumps (I don't really know) and just pretty much be able to ride your horse through situations that test their trust in you, and your trust in them...this is a website for one place's trail trials...just an idea...it's cool....I think I'll have to work on log pulling and stuff like tarps....
  3. Get more into dressage/jumping...but I'd first want to get Daisy to engage more. If I don't get into jumping for awhile because Daisy needs more ground work, so be it. I'd also like to try more with western reining...pretty much the western version of dressage. It looks REALLY cool...
  4. Go to the county fair again. (That's so gonna happen)..
  5. Survive advanced french without being bored to death (This could be hard)
  6. Learn to play the guitar. My brother got a guitar, said it was too hard, and quit. Soooo I took it and I'm using the "Guitar for Dummies" book to learn...so far (since yesterday) it's going pretty well! I like it a lot already...
Well, this was kind of a boring post...Have a Happy 2009, everyone! Make it great! :D
