...and Looking Forward (2013)

As for the new year, I don't know if I want it to be better than 2012. I certainly don't want it to be worse! What I'm trying to say is that I'll be happy if it stays at about the same balance of good and bad. Except maybe a little more good and a little less barn drama?

2013 is going to be a very interesting year. I'll be turning 17, that awkward age between 16 and 18 where you are kind of an adult but not really. I'll hopefully be doing some traveling, whether to Europe or other places in the USA. I'll be looking at universities and then applying for them in the fall. I hopefully will be graduating in December, done with high school forever.

What is coming up for Sharlie, Casper and I? What will happen with my writing career? If you think about it, a year of unknown is terribly daunting and terrifying.

Alright, so by now I've come up with a few new year resolutions.

-My plan with Cinderella Wolf is have it completely edited and begin sending it off to publishers.

-I would like to be able to trot on Casper in full tack and not have him panic.

-I would like to be able to canter Sharlie without her bucking (and for me to have the confidence to ask her to canter).

- Stay in touch with extended family much more.

-I will be a little more active, a little more fit. If only so that when I try and mount Casper it isn't so embarrassing. :)

-Hell, maybe even a little romance would be nice? ;)

-Definitive read more. Way more.

I can set goals and make plans, but I have a terrible habit of not doing them. I'm going to try my best though.

I don't think 2013 will be all that different. Too much is still the same in the world for things to change drastically. I can say I want to see gay marriage legalized nation wide as it deserves to be. I can say I want to start being treated more like an adult, especially when it comes to horses. But will that happen? Probably not.

So since the people around me won't change or evolve or make themselves better...I will. So there.

Have a lovely new year everyone.

xoxo Julia
