After going out of my way to cancel lessons so I could work with everyone elses schedules I've gotten zero confirmation from three out of four people. Talk about pulling out your hair lol.
I've always hated group projects. More often than not the project isn't completed or is rushed at the last minute and doesn't have the polish it should.

I feel your pain on the college group project thing. I've had one group project that went really well but that's only because everybody needed a stellar grade on it in order to pass the class. And it's also because it was a good group over all.

All other group projects of mine (groups over two members) haven't gone over well.

And yes, you are allowed to whine. Sometimes people just need to vent otherwise they'll mentally explode.

ugh, I feel you with the group projects too. We're supposed to be doing a group project in my English class at college and the project is TEACHING the class ourselves on day for 1 hour...but my 2 partners aren't willing to even read the 8 page chapter assignment, much less meet up to work on it. I've tried to be flexible dispite my INSANE work/school schedule for them, and I've been set up twice already. Not fun at all. Turns out while I was waiting patiently for them to arrive, one was out with her boyfriend and the other was playing World of Warcraft at home.

That's terrible Endiku ):

The girl who put herself in charge of 'organizing' didn't bother to contact anybody in the days before our second meeting, so I sent out a couple messages and got responses from ONE other girl (the only other girl who is also working and going to school full time). The others, who aren't working, didn't bother to respond... so we'll see if they show up tomorrow. They know where we'll be.

I've only done one other group project so far and it didn't go so well- and that was because everyone wanted to do their own thing and then put it together last minute. WELL that doesn't really work, does it?

The plus side is that we're meeting two hours later, which means I have time to go to my lesson and very very quickly hustle down town to meet up with everyone. So maybe I wont be ready to explode on them, LOL!

As to riding at dark, I use to ride quite a bit into and long past dark. I never did this alone unless I accidently lost track of time or for just the short "last leg" after we would get near our respective homes and split up. With a group of trusted friends/family, it can't be beat. It is also "timing", to be headed home on a familiar path after it gets dark. Personally, I would not intentionally do it alone.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I don't think I'm going to be riding out on my own in the dark any time soon, but I'm sure I'll survive my back yard (if the coyotes don't get me )

LOL loved your post. Glad you were able to find some good things I had no life 2 years ago when I worked 2 jobs. I had bought my own house and worked 2 full time jobs(yes its possible!!) and took online courses while doing it. Then I had no time, but I also didn't have any horses during that time, so I didn't need spare time for very much either.

Luckily life is wonderful now with horses, a husband and a beautiful home with an amazing job that doesn't feel like a job. Education is worth it believe me!

LOL glad you thought it was entertaining.

I'm pretty lucky, all my paychecks right now are going toward paying for school and I get to make education my top priority, which is nice. I'm just waiting to crack, this week is like the calm before the storm. No due dates, a couple cancelled classes and then EVERYTHING gets handed in next week and the week after. So I should probably start doing it now but I just don't WANT to lol.

The plus side is that my bosses have finally realized school is what's important to me right now, and I've learned how to say no to extra shifts. I get a real day off every week now! Very exciting now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go crash.
