Pay off Tehama County

Pay off Colusa County

Get driver’s license; buy a car
Build good credit history - $200 away from a 700 FICO score!
Build a nest egg

HS Diploma from San Juan/Winterstein

Transfer Degree in Animal Science from Cosumnes River College. College schedules come out in mid-October and I’m hoping to get the Math and English classes that I need to get the ball rolling with school again.

BS Degree in Animal Science from UC Davis

Pursue my career with the University of California; at some point in the future, transfer to the Animal Science Department at the University. After a year and a half on the job, I have an understanding of my responsibilities and a clear vision of what I want to achieve in my current position. I will stay here until I have followed through with that, and then the University of California is my oyster! I still want to end up and the UC Davis Campus, either in the Animal Science Department, or at the School of Vet Medicine.

I’ve been dying to start riding horses again, and it’s happening! Reining is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I found out that the West Coast Reining Horse Association is based out of Elk Grove, which is next to Sacramento. I found a great trainer and my first lesson is in three weeks. I’m beyond excited! So many things that I’ve wanted for so long are coming to fruition now. My first goal is to start reining; after that, to win my first buckle; a little bit farther down the road, to be a trainer.

Once I have the car, I’ll spend time taking road trips to the surrounding areas to find out what I like and where I want to live. I will work hard and be true to myself and will meet a man that I love and respect to be my husband and the father of my children. Doing it! I haven’t found the place I’ll call home yet, but I have been exploring and am sure I’ll get there.

Ultimate goal:
House in the country filled with family and a barn on the property filled with horses; a successful horse training business. The ultimate goal is the same and I continue to work toward it!

The Totally Weird and Random Dream That I Had Last Night

I woke up on a beach, in a tent, with my ex-boyfriend. The one who I thought was The One who ended up not being The One, who I have since realized wouldn’t have worked out in the long run because I’m a country girl and he’s a city boy. We were camping with some friends of his, a couple. He left early in the morning and they told me it was because he had to be somewhere to help someone, but that I was special to him or something to that effect. We went to where he was, which ended up being his house that he was rebuilding. The thing that he had to do was cut someone’s hair. GBW, a surgeon that I work with in real life and adore, was there pacing and asking how it was going. In the dream he was a friend of the ex’s and was there to show support.

I was trying out for an acting job. I didn’t want it, but I felt it was important to the ex. They – the people I was trying out for – told me that I had to take an acting class. I said I wouldn’t do it, but ended up giving in. My mother was sitting with the people I was trying out for. I was walking away and heard her tell them that I still lived at home. I turned around and asked if she said what I thought she said, and then told them that I don’t live with her.

Because I was at this thing trying out for an acting job, I was late for work. I was working at Chicago Title (where I was laid off from in 2005) as an Escrow Assistant, but I didn’t assist anyone. I did all the work. I had to call in and tell them I was going to be late.
