There is no doubt on this sunny Ellensburg Monday that spring is in the air! This year spring means a lot of different things for myself. I’m finishing up my undergraduate degree, both my horses now live with me here, and I will officially be adulting! Whoa, when did that happen?
I’ve been blessed with the greatest last 4 years of my life. I got to experience every aspect of college from living in the dorms freshman year to weekend adventures with less than no worries in the world. My family has been a huge support system. Now it’s onto the next step and I couldn’t be more excited and scared all at the same time. Finally have to start paying my brother back for the horse trailer he bought me nearly 2 years ago.
For now not much in my life is going to change except for I’ll get to spend a lot more time riding and barrel racing. I’ve always struggled with time, there was never enough in the day and for the first time in my life I think there might just be. Heck I’m going to have time to watch tv! I haven’t watched TV since middle school. I’m overly excited for spring to be filled with sunny evenings, beautiful sunsets, windy afternoons, and LOTS of barrel races. Because lets be honest barrel racing is life.
Now I’m going to be able to go to barrel races in other states and be gone for 3-4 days at a time and not have to worry about finding a wifi connection to submit homework! I will no longer be the girl at the barrel race in the stands working on homework and trying to watch rides. It’s times like that I won’t miss being a student. The change is going to be weird, I won’t have school on the brain while trying to live my life.
For the next few months while everyone asks me what I am going to do the answer will be, ride horses! Here’s to the best season ever! Time to sign off for today and go enjoy the first spring day of the year.
