Art Class

 I have art everyday, first block. We are doing still-life right now. Normally I'm pretty critical and negative about my art, but I really LOVE how mine looks so far. There are only 8 kids in my art level at the most, usually 6 everyday. And my "friend" is in my class.

 This is going to sound mean, and I feel bad, but it's true...she's terrible. She really can't draw realism, which is fine, not everyone can. But she's always asking me "does it look okay?" "its looking better hey?". I always say "Yeah, its turning out nicely."
Its not. My art teacher is always trying to help her with it, but it's no use.
Anyway, looking at her crappy thing since she asked (again) "Does this look good?" "Yeah, it's really looking a lot better the more you work on it." (LIES!) So then she looks over at mine and is like "Yours looks pretty good."
 But she's got this "edge" to her voice, like she doesn't mean it. I could have slapped her. I love my drawing right now, and it looks great. Not pretty good. Great. Especially since she's probably comparing it to hers. And as she rightly put it, "it looks like a 10 year old drew it."
It's true.

Ha ha enough ranting, I'm trying (not very hard) to be nicer.

The Joys of Leasing

Ha. So last Wednesday, I went out to barn with my friend to do my lease ride and to bring my friend out to see the barn and meet my coach, since she wants to move to my stable.
  Guess who showed up? Barn Bitch 1(she's the chick that just recently started to lease Tommy). Since about June. Anyway, she was supposed to come out on Thursday, not Wednesday. Anyway, she rode my other friend Nora's horse instead. Because my coach told her too.
  She has some condition or something, where she wont talk. It's not mute-ism its something else. Anyway she just gave me this really bitchy look in the barn and went and sat in the truck with her dad until my trainer should up and told her to ride Shawn.  I totally though she was going to make her dad come out and yell at me to let her ride Tommy.

Out of the five years I've been leasing my horses this is the only time this has happened. Actually once before. Diesel was being used in a lesson because my coach forgot I was coming out to ride so instead I rode Tango.

I'm tired. It's weird. No matter how much I sleep I'm exhausted. I've gone to bed as early as 9:30 and as late as 11 this week and I've exhausted everyday. So annoying.

Leura, Australia

Leura is a beautiful little town in Australia's Blue Mountians. I really miss it, it felt  like home, it was cold...sort of, and it reminded me of Jasper/Canmore. Of course the native trees in Australia are green all year round but the tree's on Leura's main street had no leaves at the time. So it was like Jasper in the fall/winter.

Soo pretty. If you are ever in Australia, make the trip up from Sydney to Leura. It's only a couple hours drive up. Plus they have the greatest old style candy shop, and loads of other cute little stores. And they have way better pop tart flavours than we do here!
