    Me too! I've been desperately trying to find a part time job,but have had no luck finding one that will work for me. It's rather discouraging at times,but have to have faith that the right job will come at the right time.
    On another note,I went to check out the pasture I'm going to rent tonight.It's absolutely perfect!

    Got a good ride in on Chica tonight. ( I'm sure my other girls are feeling neglected,I really need to take them for a spin tomorrow,hopefully). As mentioned before,she has been doing better with the bit and bridle,but I still wasn't happy with how she was responding to the bit,so changed it to a french link loose ring from the eggbutt single joint snaffle that the trainer supposedly used on her. What a world of difference! She responds so much better with this one.
    Here she is all ready to go tonight. Oh,and the lovely sunset. :)

    Countryryder, that sunset is freaking gorgeous, as is your horse.

    I guess I'm mainly in here to complain. XP I thought that 20% off lessons from volunteering would be enough, but I don't think it will be. I don't know when I'll get to ride again. Sigh. I'm too poor right now, and I need to save up money, not spend $200+ a month on a "fun" thing. (Would be a little over $100 if I went alone, but I would feel bad, because my boyfriend likes riding too, and he volunteers with me...he would be getting nothing in return.) I'm trying to get a job. Hate being fresh out of college. :S I just wish I had a friend with a horse who would let me ride! >_< This is like, the most local, family-friendly, therapeutic programme, etc. etc. barn I could find. If these guys won't do a bigger discount than 20%, I don't think a fancier place would. I guess I'll just keep volunteering because I love horses and I'm pathetic like that, but I die a little inside watching the kids ride when I can't. Ugh. Wish I wasn't poor.

    I'm sure you will be able to improve your financial situation gradually, Phelan, and then get all the riding you want. :)

    Ugh... A bit bored... But going to visit Snickers this evening. :)

    Lovely sunset CountryRyder! And a nice horse too. I wish coloured horses were more common around here.

    PhelenVelvel - That's no good :( Perhaps you can do a lesson every two weeks?

    I'm back from work. Its nice enough there, they weren't really good at showing me what to do, I just kind of guessed how to use the till, and other stuff. They didn't really show me the coffee machine so I'll have to pick that up later. My legs are sore though :( And no lunch break, but they gave me some lunch, but I like getting out and walking around

    Oh.. that's no good, hopefully it was just a busy day and it will improve for you :(
    Im so scared about getting a new job just incase I don't like it and was better off at my old one.

    On another note im almost 99.999991% sure im going to do my.diploma next year instead of equine nursing on the fact that it will be impossible for me to find work placement. Our local vet is already taking on a ton of vet nurses and prob wont have time for just an equine nurse, but ill try. But I can always do it later on in life I spose :)

    Oh lets see if I can catch up.

    Country - Chica is gorgeous, I'm just in love with the brown and white patterns. Why do you need a part time job? I thought you worked full time on your family farm?

    Saskia - I imagine a coffee cafe is just like retail haha. I hated every minute of retail, it seems no matter where it is they just hang you out on your own. Although when I worked a front desk for a huge resort, I loved all the friends I made but the guests made me hate my job. I just up and quit that one day lol. I suppose that is where my hate for people came from, sterotypes exist for a reason, they are true. I can't even count the number of times I had to call security/police due to an irrate guest for something stupid.

    Nyx - It's always best to pick the job based off what will fund your hobbies. There are so many out of work college grads here in the states because they got a degree in communications, which means nothing, it is completely useless. Or an art major, yes art is nice and can be a wonderful hobby/side job but don't expect it to pay the bills. So pick something you can tolerate well forever and that will allow you to pursue all your hobbies and interests.

    Saranda - So yesterday when you mentioned Snickers running up to you, well Lizzy sorta did something similar. When I was leaving, after I had already fed her, she started following my car along her paddock and gave me the saddest look when she couldn't follow me any longer. Really made me sad.

    So sweet when they do this, right? Snickers often follows me along the fencing and I just can't leave - he always gets additional goodbye scratches and petting, and still follows me with a longing look in his eyes. I guess he likes me. :)
