That's what I'm starting in August as well. Taking the fast track option tho so I can cut a year off.

I graduated with a dual degree in Sociology and Anthropology in 2007. But decided not to use it because I wanted to focus on my horse riding. I also got married that summer. Got a job at a jumping stable...exercising about 7-8 horses a day. Taught a few lessons on the side...decided I hate teaching lessons. Did A LOT of barn chores...decided I never wanted to own a full-scale training facility. Started doing photography, graphics design, website design for that jumping facility and an AQHA breeding facility...liked that but the work tends to be seasonal and not very lucrative. Then I got pregnant...so now I'm a barefoot and pregnant stay at home housewife...although I think I missed the boat on the whole housewives do the chores thing...because I only vacuum, dust and do laundry. My husband cleans the bathroom, does all the dishes and all the cooking.

I don't plan on working again (indefinitely). My main priority this year is to take care of the baby. Next spring Im going to start looking for a jumping horse to start campaigning next fall on the Amateur circuit. I figure one day if the cards fall in place maybe I'll go back and get my masters in anthropology so that I can do field research.

I am a fish biologist for the state of Washington. I work with trout, warmwater fish and grass carp. I operate an 18 foot electroshocking boat and do surveys on fish at night. I interview anglers on what they are catching at the lakes, oversee our youth fishing program in our region and write reports.

It's a lot of fun. Set me own schedule, outside (though sometimes in not very cool weather!).

I'm still studying at college, and I'm trying to decide whether to do a business degree or a nursing degree at uni next year.
