This Monday it will be the first day of week 6 of my last winter quarter as an undergrad. I don’t think I’ve blogged since November or December? I’m slightly too lazy to verify that factoid this lazy Saturday night.
Despite the major laziness occurring tonight, there has been some major learning going on since December!
I learned how to strip furniture (and how not to get a major chemical high while doing so), how to weld and lots of tidbits about bits–and a bunch of other stuff from class.
For my Senior Project, I’m going to design and fabricate a couple styles of bits. As of right now, I’m thinking two shank styles with three types of mouthpieces that are interchangeable. I am still sifting through my giant pile of information, which will need to be formed into a draft paper in two weeks. Another scary thing–I need 50% of fabrication done by the end of this quarter.
The horses have been doing fairly well. Farrah is the only 100% sound one. Liza pulled a belly muscle, and that is almost healed (I am hoping by next week the knot won’t be sore when palpated, and then she can go back to some easy work). Olympus tweaked his back and we are not quite out of the woods with that one either. Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise since I do not have time to actively ride/work horses if they were at their 100% sound potential given my heavy course load (19 units…annnnd I’m in quarters).
Want to know the most satisfying thing I have done lately?
On another note, I’m not sure about shows this year. I’ll most likely make the Tehachapi CDS Dressage shows. As for others….I have no clue.
