This past weekend, my friend Jenn and I randomly decided to just go to my old trainer J’s farm in Wellington for a little field trip off the property, and to get some training. I’d been wanting to do this for a while, but after having FOUR DAYS IN A ROW of our ring not…… Continue reading Field Trips and Frustrations
As I get things in order for school, it seems like everything that can become an issue for me, has all at once. Giving real meaning to the saying when it rains, it pours.

I’d been prepared for that, but what I wasn’t prepared for was the extreme exhaustion that accompanied…… Continue reading Snake eyes
Update on the eye: I’ve been in way less pain overall and the infection area has dramatically reduced in size. My doctor has said that I’m looking much better, and that I am ‘turning a corner’, hence the blog title 😊 I have been put on a new medication that is a very strong anti-amoeba…… Continue reading Turning a corner!
