Everyday is a winding road

I bought the cap, gown and tassel.
Invited my family and friends
And walked that very short walk to
Receive what you worked so hard
To earn the past four years.

A Diploma.
Very expensive piece of paper,
At least according to my loan statement.
Is now sitting in an expensive frame
On the floor of my bedroom. But I do
Not feel much different.

I thought I would feel
more mature,
but now I just feel...pretty much poor.

Virginia Tech has made my life richer, yes. Yet I will miss those four years dearly. Most of all, I will miss the security found with-in daily, weekly routines of class and work and roommates and weekends. But I will move on, in attempts to create a more vivid tomorrow. A brighter future for myself. I'll let ya know how it goes ;-)

Colby - "Icky Fatty"

My friend's horse who I have fallen in love with. He is a young draft cross and can certianly do dressage, or at least has the prospect to do so! Hopefully the weather will be clear and we can ride him this week - I have not ridden in about 6 months and I have to ride out west 2x a day starting May 22nd! BAH. I am going to be a sore cowgirl...

Cute little farm house on the barn property

And as promised, the Horse Judging "Dream Team" - go


"Your life is an occasion. Rise to it."

A great movie quote that I heard on a very cute children's movie I enjoyed, cuddled up on the couch with my roommate. I sure will miss these last four years of college dearly, nights downtown, football games, crew regattas, VT Dressage Team shows, working at the farm, anatomy lab dissections, procrastinating with text twist online game with Holly, amazing Earth Sustainability Class experiences, everything about Block and Bridle, studying abroad, flipping horses for local friends...and all the wonderful people, professors and neighbors I have had the pleasure to meet.

Virginia Tech - it sure has been amazing. Take care of your kids, so that everyone can love college as much as I have. <3
