Awe Tommy!! I've started riding bareback again, which I haven't done since about this time last year with Diesel, because he totally freaked out so that was the end of that. And since Tango was always nuts it was better to just not try at all.

 But last Friday I decided to give it a shot with Tommy, we just walked a bit at first and then I put him on a circle and we did some trotting. He was super good. And as someone that must always push the envelope; I lowered all the jumps to just under a foot (better not try anything too crazy), and we trotted over those! He was soo good, its defiantly nice to have a horse to ride bareback with again.
 In our lesson this week we jumped a course with the highest jumps at about 2'9"! Higher than what I'd been doing with Diesel and he's a much bigger horse than Tommy!
 So this Friday all the jumps were still up so I again just lowered them all, and we did our warm up and then went bareback to do a bit more work and cool down. He did really well over almost all of them, which is saying a lot because he has little respect for small jumps. But after one, he got in a couple canter strides before I brought him down to a walk. And I was kind of like "oh...that was fun...and not insane". (his usual canter is really really quick). So I just had to push the envelope again and we went back over the jumps and this time I asked him for a bit of  a canter after we landed which he did!!! Such an awesome ride! Also another good thing he listened, all be it, reluctantly to come back to a trot and then a walk! So, so proud of him!

So much to say...

Tommy did really well towards the end of the lesson today. He loves to take of long to jumps and at 2'3" its not that much of a problem, but he's lazy and not using his back end so we're trying to get him to take off closer to the jump. And by then end he did super well over a course of six jumps so I'm proud of him.

My nose stud go ripped out of my face today. Yeah, we had a chem lab and the goggles slid down my nose and when I took them off, I just pulled them straight off my face and the edge caught under neath the stud and pulled it right out. Didn't hurt surprisingly and luck me (literally!) my chem partner who used to have hers done and a couple left over in her pencil case. Don't worry (as I'm sure you are =P) they were clean and sterile and what not, so I've got that in now. Going to the mall with my besty tomorrow so probably going to pick up a couple new packs then if they aren't to much.
 Also have to see how much some cheap extensions are so that I can get dyeing my hair! Well technically someone elses...well no, because its synthetic hair...whatever. So I'm still unsure about which colors I want to start with because its $25 for 2 tubs of dye and I still need some new permanent black stuff, but I think I'll what to do that until a week or some before I go on holidays. Only 39 sleeps left! Which means I need to get my ass in gear for working out! Everyday after school god damn it! and NO junk food!!

And last thing for tonight, my bio partner is insane...actually now that I think about that could be really yeah, he's nuts and I'm going to bed =D
