    This is what was great about making E-4 in the Navy, at my command it meant eligible for off base housing, bah/bas, I found the cheapest place I could find and shopped at Costco. I was pretty setup.

    For a while I was the Barracks Petty Officer, which mean I was in charge of correcting all of our resident **** bags, that could be very stressful at times.

    Wow definitely phat fingered in that post^^ hahahaha


    Anywho. So yesterday...what did I do yesterday??? Bahaha

    Uh went out to the ranch at like 8 and just kind of punked around till Lance and Merlin were done eating.

    Then silly me I got Lance out first! Ah. So I lunged him for like 5 min in the square pen ( I personally like using the square pen more than the round pen...The straight fences cause the horse to be in a neutral position as far as posture. You need to be much more aware of the horse’s posture, and where the head, feet and body are because the horse may not be bent like it would in the round pen. And you have to be more aware of your own posture as well....make for a much more focused and soft horse imo)

    anyways!. So after I got him working for me in the square pen I let im loose in the arena to get his jollies out before I got on him. He started doing really nicely free lunging, having a nice soft circle around me.

    went and got the saddle etc on and introduced him to.....the dreaded lunge line! Aaaaah he was not a happy camper lol. Im guessing he's never even seen a lunge line so back to square one we went haha. He actually picked it up pretty quickly and even started yielding his HQ very nicely.

    so hop on time.....and yeah. Just yeah. I made sure to mount (as always) in the middle of the arena....and before I could blink he had the bit between his teeth and was at the gate o.o no-no. He has NO idea what kind of can of worms he just opened with me hahahaha.

    he is SUPER sour under saddle. Ground work, no problemo. But yeah.

    so the next 20ish minutes he had a "come to god" meeting with me.

    hes super hard in the mouth, but surprisingly responsive with my spurs...i.e. He jumped like a scared rabbit as soon as he even felt them....no sense of leg pressure other than "go!"


    we did lots and lots and lots of circles and serpentines in a very small area just trying to get him to stand calmly facing AWAY from the gate.

    My arms are TIRED. Hahaha and he was lathered after that. So once I got him to back 5 steps withOUT him yanking his head up and standing still for 2 min straight I called it quits.

    this was probably more work than he's had to do in a VERY long time lol.
    So I unsaddled him, let him roll and spent some good TLC time brushing him so there was no hard feelings

    Oh and while I was working him...i had a huge audience. TOTALLY awkward. Apparently yesterday was also volunteer orientation day for new people...

    Oh AND the most aggravating person, our so called "volunteer coordinator" who has seen me a total of one times, decided to ask me if I was there for the orientation!

    Like really ho? You've been here what 2 months? I've worked here over 2 years! God. This is what I hate about the place...always new people trying to be all "oh I know everything here and I volunteer 3 days a week and I've never seen you"

    Welli I have this thing called a job...so I only get to go out on the weekends....bleh.

    Oh well....so after I put Lance away I had a pretty nice calm 30 min ground work/tying session with Merlin (hes such a cute old man!) and then chilled with my boy Champ...and the VC chick decided to ask me like 100 bazzilion questions about each horse while she gave the tour...like how are you VC if you don't even know the horses stories?!

    And picture!
    Sir Lancelot (really....not a sir hahahaha)
    Lance.jpg

    (hes a monster. QHxDraft. Even taller than Charlie! Omg I didn't think I was going to be able to get on him without a step ladder...but I did it lol)

    Then after I went home went and saw Riddick.....super good which was suprising. I was kind of afraid to go after the cheap knock offs they made before...but yeah totally worth watching.


    But today....omg today. So I really want to find Splinter Cell in PB so I can read it at work this week (no electronics aka my kindle allowed in the tunnel) so went to B&N in Honolulu....no luck...so went to the B&N in Waikiki...still no luck...so I was like screw it and went ALL the way across the island to Target....no luck there...so I hit the walmart at Kunia on the way home....still no luck again....so I though MAYBE the PX had it since I remember they have a lot of Tom Clancys books....nope....and I hadn't gotten my groceries because I was afraid theyd go bad while I was on the hunt so I went to the walmart in Mililani....nope! Omg biggest waste of gas EVER hahahaha.


    Over it.


    So I figure...since I can't READ without a BOOK ill make duct tape wallets because I have a lot of duct tape....but nobody seems to want one
