An Extended About Me

I feel kind of anonymous on this blog. This isn’t a personal blog, so that’s okay. But I’m going to do a personal post anyway.

I’m from Colorado. It’s not that cold. It does not snow as much as people think it does. It is really windy. Like Chicago-style Sunday. Without the deep-dish crust and 600 calories of cheese.

I graduated from high school in 2008 and moved to San Diego for college. No I’m not tan. I will never be tan. I will die of skin cancer before I tan. And I’m not a fan of dying. I have an extensive bucket list to take care of first.

I have a horse. His name is Escobar. I did not name him- really, how cool do you think I am? Here’s his picture:

Cute, huh? He’s a Hannoverian. Which is just a big German breed of horse. He does not jump. He is, in fact, terrified of jumps. He is terrified of most things, actually. We do dressage. Here’s another picture of me riding him in a show:

Go to YouTube and type in ‘Dressage’. Then type in ‘Dressage Freestyle’. Watch lots and lots of horse videos.

I live with my roommate and her cat and her rabbit. The cat pulls her hair out. Yeah, we don’t know either. Neurotic, I guess. The rabbit is pretty bitchin’ though. Like if there was a constant between the cat and the horse and the rabbit (size notwithstanding), the rabbit would totally kill it. He’s way too brave for being like four pounds.

I also like long walks on the beach. No, but seriously. As long as it’s warm out. Yes, I am from Colorado. Yes, I think it is cold in San Diego in the winter. Yes I’m serious- why do you think I moved?

I study Literature-Writing and am working on a minor in Film Studies. Pretty much I read, write, and watch movies. Sweet deal. I learn vicariously through other people. I studied French for somewhere around nine years- I can read and write fluently. Speaking is, ahem, a separate matter entirely. We’ll call it functional. That seems appropriate.

I make crafts in my spare time and I sell things on-line through Etsy. I’m also a good cook. Not a good baker. Chocolate chip cookies are so difficult for me to make. Yeah, I don’t know either.

I like music, but I can’t sing. Once upon a time, I played the viola. I like dancing, but I can’t dance. See obsession with chick-flick dance films (Bring It On, I’m looking at you). I like the ocean and stuff, but I don’t swim very well. I like photography, but I wouldn’t consider myself good at it.

What am I good at? Loving people.

Feel free to ask me more questions. I’ll probably answer them. Probably.

    Your writing is quite good.

    Has that air of humor in it

    Very Nice… My sister lived in Durango for many years… That’s where she had her horse.

    She also got married there many moons ago, and we all went out to the wedding.

    It was originally planned outside, but then a storm blew in, and we were forced to move into a giant metal building, Lol

    During the Wedding Video, you can see lightning in the background, and hear thunder… Which causes my sister to jump during the ceremony, Lol

    Colorado and San Diego are Very Beautiful

    I’m North of L.A…. In the hills inland from Malibu… It’s where I grew up, it’s lovely here as well

      I’ve never been to Durango. Which is funny because oddly, Durango is the place where lots of people have been the “one time” they went to Colorado. I’m pretty sure California is just kind of gorgeous all over. Same with Colorado.

        Ha, I think you may have a point there… Though the Closer to the beach (in regards to Cali), the better… Inland can get a bit dry and hot, Lol

        DJ-
