Horse training is playing. Lengthen, shorten, turn. It’s playful. It’s not temper and emotion and drama.

I want to tell everyone who has struggled with money and horses that there will come a time where you will reap the benefits, but only if you stick with it. Don’t ever be embarrassed because you are riding a $500 Quarter Horse while your friends are riding $30,000 Irish Sport Horses. Don’t ever allow money to dictate your life or sway your dreams, but you have to keep working hard if you want results.

Horses are life. Once you dedicate yourself to a horse, be it a lease or ownership, you dedicate your. whole. life. to it. Sure, there’s stuff outside of horses, you keep friendships and you go out for lunch with your friends and family a couple times a week, you spend Saturday night out drinking sometimes, but you never let your horse fall behind those things. I’ve pointed out to people that their horse’s hooves look like they need a trim quite badly, and they reply with things along the lines of “sure, but I don’t have time for the farrier right now. I do have a life, you know.” Yeah, well I have a life too, darling, and he goes by the name of Sandro. The rest of what I do is just hobbies, and unless people have horses, they just don’t get it; even some horse people just don’t get it. I’ve sacrificed a lot for him, but I do owe him my life, and I know you’ve experienced that feeling first-hand, too.

I can’t stop laughing at Harry running the fuck awaythe boy who lived ladies and gentlemen.

….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.

Hermione Granger also: 

  • punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot 
  • purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous) 
  • literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
  • Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”) 
  • Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry 
  • Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else

in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad. 

Can we rehave this series with hermione as the protagonist.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.

WHY THE FLYING FUCK ARE YOU GIVING CHILDREN BODY ARMOR BUT NOT TAKING THE GUNS OFF THE PEOPLE TRYING TO SHOOT THEM?!?!
