Profile Information

I'm 19 years old. Right now I'm earning my AA degree at a community college then transferring to WW next fall to earn my double major of Equestrian Science and Equestrian Adminsitration bachelor's degree. I love horses. I've always been a huge horse lover since I was 5. I began riding when I was 17. I "adopted" an old senior horse named Streaker. "Adopted" because he had owners but his owners didn't care about him & only owned him just to say they owned a horse & never visited him. So I fell in love with him & he began showing his love and trust back in me a year later. It takes a long time for the horse to trust you and love you back. 5 days later he developed severe colic and had to be put down. I wasn't able to be with him in those final minutes. That is my biggest regret.

I've been writing since I was 12. I used to do poetry too but I dropped that and now I only write stories. I don't write nonfiction stories. My fiction stories are twined with some real events and/or thoughts but it is mostly fiction.

I'm only sharing this part of me because it influences my stories and you, the reader, will be able to know where I come from. I was diagonsed with major depression when I was 13. As you recall I'm 19 now. I still have major depression. It keeps coming back. I have never did the act of committing suicide so if in my writing the character does that then that is purely fictional. I'm not drawing on my experiences because I have none with that. It is purely fictional.

Months before Streaker had to be put down my mother was diagonsed with breast cancer. Senior year of High School was extremely rough for me. She is alive and recovering now, in case you were concerned.

Interesting Facts About Me:

1) I have "cat" eyes. Yes that means I have yellow eyes. I'm not kidding. I don't wear contacts. I have 20/20 vision. They're normally yellow but change to a moss green at times.

2) I'm 5 foot 11 inches. My entire family is tall. My dad is 6 foot one inch and my older brother is 6 foot 2 inches (at least).

3) I am terrified of becoming paralyzed from a horseback riding accident. In December of 2011 there was a horseback riding accident involving me on Friend, my friend on Domino, and my friend leading a mare. It was windy and the mare got spooked by the trashcan in the road (compacted gravel, thank God) and bolted. Friend bolted, skidded, and bucked me off. I can handle bucks - when I'm seated. I was half thrown off when he skidded and had no chance when he bucked. I landed flat on my back and broke a bone in my spine. My friend got bucked off too. She hadn't broken anything though. We went horseback riding 3 more times that day. I was very lucky not to have injured my spine further by riding. I have a very rational, healthy fear of becoming paraylzed from a horseback riding accident now.

4) I am training to become a competitive show jumper. Show jumpers are the riders who jump the horses over the rails. It was in the Olympics this past summer (July 2012). Show jumping stays in the arena.

5) I always look for the good in people. If they're rude to me well maybe they've had a bad day. Etc.

6) I have no respect for someone who is intentionally cruel to a horse, or any other animal. If I see you being cruel to an animal you better expect me to run over to you and knock you down. I will do whatever it takes to have the police get your butt in jail. There is never any reason to be cruel to an animal.

7) Oh yeah. I'm a female, if you haven't figured that out already.

8) I'm in the right on my profile picture. That was at prom. I have no idea why my friend isn't smiling too.

9) Questions? Go ahead. I'm pretty much an open book.
