shit is getting real

Entry for my first recognized horse trials opens today.  So I did what everyone does and registered their horse under their stupid JC name even though I so want to use one of the better names we talked about but… JC, man

This was, of course, a total procrastinatory tactic because I have basically daily deadlines this week leading up to a huge presentation on Friday.  Just presenting all my research to my entire graduate group and whatever faculty want to come.  No big.

So I’m just going to go ahead and neglect my horse, health, and blog while I finish that shit up.

I did have a fantastic day Sunday shooting the cross country portion of a show.  Nothing to make you want to run prelim like watching horses LOVE their jobs at prelim!

Last night Lainey Ashker commented on my position on an instragram photo. So that was badass.  And liked a selfie. #madeit

LAE is clearly way cooler than me because she uses the word “fleek” and I didn’t even know that was a word until like two weeks ago.

So that’s this week.  See you all after my presentation.

  1. I might have learned fleek a week or so before you. Don’t feel bad. Congrats on the Laine shout out! Nice! And I like the JC name. Could be worse. Have fun and break a leg (on your presentation that is). 🙂


  2. Woot, first recognized is a big milestone. I didn’t register mine under his JC name… I just can’t look him in the eye and call him He’salmostsweet. That’s just awful.


  3. Good luck with your presentation! And first recognized show AND a LA shout out? I’m not sure we can be friends – you sound way too much like one of those super cool kids 😉


  4. Jennie Brannigan recently started following me for no real reason on instagram (I mean, I wasn’t even her friend), and I was like, OMFG #madeit. So, that’s funny 🙂

    I was forced to come up with a name for Wiz since he was unregistered. His name was “The Devil’s Alchemist” on his coggins, but seriously, that wasn’t going to fly (but where the idea of ‘alchemy’ came from). Best of luck!! What event are you going to?
