I was enrolled for 9 credits, two classes but fincail aid didn't cover it and wound up having to drop out in the second week :( sad cause I was really feeling good about my class selection and was excited about the work I was going to do in both classes!
Everything happens for a reason is what I go by so with no school I have more time to pick up odd jobs to save and go to my week of training at work that they where going to let me do after this quarter and that will give me an extra $400 to stash away in all the areas I am needing to stash in! So I shouldn't say extra I should just say very hard earned money!
Leapoffaitfarn- yes too true we do only live once an better make the best of it in making ourselves happy to the fullest and if that means being poor to make your horse life as rich as possible why the heck not?!
I'm coming to this conclusion after the long bought of ending my three year relationship, he sadly somewhat gets my horse life but I truly think he believes I will walk away from that for him and he has shown no intrested to helping out, the occasional visit with me and that is fun! He loves Ollie but I have to make myself happy and Ollie will always come first and if I want to achieve the goals I have in mind it's only fair to everyone that the relationship comes to a close.
We have to make ourselves happy as this all we got for now and choices lead to consequences in everyday life, growing up and becoming an adult is so not easy to do but yes as pointed out earlier worth it and then I can be proud I didn't beg my mom or slack off. I knew what I wanted ad need so I got to it and made it happen through my own hard work and dedication!
Iseul- sounds like you have a lot of stashing of savings to do! I can't imagine the thought of saving for a trailer!! Later in life I'll have to do that but thankfully I am allowed to use my trainers...once I lean to haul!
Kudos to you though for having the ability to save!
On the up side selling something really helps!!!
I went to fair once in 4h, was a great experaince and for some reason I don't remember the cost at all! (that was the good old day back when mommy dearest was footing the bill! Hehe)
I'm glad you guys didn't see this as a vent about saving as its really empowering for me to think about it! Iv already busted my but or hat I have put away and in that given myself a pat on the back with getting a few things I need that are realistic and things I need, not want.
Just last night I was on Dover saddlery and picked out some items I must get ASAP, passier leaderbaslm, a crank noseband and reins and some nice white wood boots for our working trail rides, trailering, and when we go out new places.
Also just realized in my savings I'll have to keep in mind a couple more pairs of fullseats, new tall boots and a show outfit...not looking to saving or trying the outfit on!
That's all for now!
Maybe it would be fun to post pictures of what we are saving for, this can be a mini support savings group!
Oh and before I forget!!
Iseul- good job on quitting!!!
