Hi guys (: It’s been a while! I didn’t want to post for a bit because I went to Rocking Horse II and I wanted my new post to be a picture from it! I think overall they turned out pretty well, actually. I got to meet @skipperdoodlefritz (JJ Sillman), and she was so nice to me and I  loved her. The first thing she said to me when I met her was, “Does your phone have any bars?!” because on cross country, you’re pretty much in the middle of a forest. I also met the fantabulous Cora and Ava Severs (@eventing_cuervo and @ruby.and.ava.eventing on instagram) and I just loved it.

Now, instead of ranting, let’s actually get something done. Recently, I’ve had a lot to think about in regards to riding. Bennett has become extremely bad with his head when I’m riding him, to the point where it gets a little unsafe sometimes. It’s discouraging to say the least. My parents told me that they would buy me another horse, but is that what I really want? No, not really.

I’d rather work at it. I’d rather work for my success than buy it. I bought Bennett knowing that his dressage wasn’t great, his jumping was just okay, and his personality was golden. I can’t even imagine doing this with any other horse.

I figured that if anyone reading this wanted to see/meet me, I’d put my event schedule up, so look for that in the next post. Thanks, loves ❤

XOXO,

Mary ❤

Profession


Hey all (: sorry it’s been a while!

It might just be me, but I like to have my life planned out. Since my sister, Hannah (shown above) went away to college, I’ve known that I want to get a major in Equine Management and a minor in Spanish. Welp. Not anymore! I’ve been watching a toooonnnn of Criminal Minds recently (don’t judge but I definitely watched all of season 1 in like 4 days not even kidding), and watching Dr. Reid, Hotch, Gideon, Morgan, and all of then profile is amazing. It looks so. Fun.

Dr. Reid is my favorite character. Spence for the win. So it isn’t surprising that after watching them do their thing, I want to become a Profiler. Now, that isn’t exactly reasonable for me, for a couple of reasons.

Reason one being that’s a lot of school. And I’m not necessarily the best at school. Well, I shouldn’t say that. I’m actually pretty good at school, so I guess this isn’t a reason.

Reason two, there are a lot of requirements, and things that I have to do. I have to do some intern stuff, I have to do a lot of school (like said above), and get a major in something like Psychology. As fun as being a profiler sounds, I’m not sure I could handle majoring in Psych.

Reason three: I don’t think I’m emotionally and mentally stable enough for a job like that. I mean, that’s why I go to therapy.

Speaking of therapy, I had a good time on Wednesday! We talked about a lot of different things (including Profiling/ Criminal Minds), and my therapist says I’m analytical, which could be why I’m normally pretty quiet around people I don’t know. I like to take in my surroundings and notice little things that most people wouldn’t. Wether it be a change in voice pitch when someone talks about something they love or hate, or a fidget when someone lies. Either way, I notice things that most people don’t. It’s a good thing and a bad thing, but in the case of wanting to be a Profiler, it’s a good thing. A Profiler has to notice things that a normal officer wouldn’t notice. They have to piece together a profile of the Unsub (Unknown Subject) from things that are missing from the crime scene, the way in which the murder/ illegal activity was committed, how the Unsub presents themselves, things like that. It’s a lot of work. I have another therapy meeting on Monday, and I’d like to continue talking about things like this. I really enjoy it ❤

 

XOXO,

Mary
