HOLY COW!!!! The first essay, literaly gave me chills. I don't know if that has ever happened to you, being in a situation where you have to put aside all of your fears and just dive in head first, but you nailed it. I have a feeling that when I start to write mine, they will be about horses, in some way. I'm a junior and I've had my senior project picked out since freshmen year. Lol. I think that these essays are sure to be a hit, and you'll do wonderfully in college! Good luck!

Thanks! :) All of the essays are recollections of things I've actually experienced. The barn fire happened during my working student interview at Phyllis Dawson's barn, and there are pictures on her website:

It was definitely completely terrifying! I felt like I was in a horse book or something, haha.

These were great! So glad that I am past that stage of writing college essays. You should defintaly be accepted with those essays, but I'm probably bias cause I love horse stories.

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of board, and he'll listen to me any day.

Haha, thanks! :) By the time I was done, I was ready to never write anything again - keeping in mind that this batch is only about 1/3 of the total number of essays I had to write. One of my others was half in French...took me way too long hahah.

Yeah, they're such a pain. Some of my prompts were soooo boring. And the forms are never fun. Now I'm doing financial aid paperwork and it's hellacious haha.
