Hello fellow DA users! As you can see, my name is Carolyn and I'm from the lovely US of A. Born in Russia, raised in New York, and currently living in the Green Mountain State. Yes, you could say I've been around the world, haha. Anyway, I am now 19 years old and a sophomore in college, with a major in Computer Information Systems.

As far as photography goes, I have been taking pictures for a good 7 or 8 years, only getting more serious about it the coming couple of years. I received my first Fujifilm Finepix at Christmas, 2013, and I'm still learning the ropes. I specialize in mostly nature and animals, but will dabble with any scene that looks good. My cat, Pumpkin, will also be making frequent appearances.

My other hobbies include reading, writing, and horseback riding (although lessons are far and few nowadays). You can send me a message anytime just to chat or ask questions and I'll respond as soon as I can.

I also love to role-play, so if you want to start something, go for it. Just don't expect art from me, because I can't draw worth anything, haha.

Check out my Instagram!

I never have any creative titles for these journals, haha. In any case, I am very much over the fact that you have to pay more to get a "Premium" Membership now. I am very much sick of seeing that orange lettering everytime I browse around. "Become Core." No, I don't think I will. I only used them for fancy journal skins anyway. Which you shouldn't have to pay $50+ for. Anyway, moving on.

Work. Now, for those of you who do not know, and I don't know if I made an update about this or not, but I work at an equine dressage farm about 15 minutes from my house. The trek up and down a mountain is not helping my gas mileage or my brakes, lol, but it is worth it.  I started the job back in April just before my birthday, and right away, I was taken in like a family member or close friend. I don't think I can recall one time where I felt left out or alone. Working with horses has always been a passion of mine, and at this place, I get plenty of inter-action with them. It's more like an internship/working student thing, so I don't get paid that much, which is perfectly okay with me. I'm not in it for the money. It's a cute farm with plenty of fields and paddocks for the horses, plus an indoor arena. I currently work with (well, ride) to ponies. Ironically, I can't remember the last time I was put on a pony. Maybe a few years ago, I don't know. 

Sprite is the first pony I started to ride. It's white, a bit dappled, and kinda pudgy, as some ponies are. He has this short mane that always gets poofy when you comb it. Riding him as been fun, though. He does have his stubborn moments, like making his head and neck stiff so he won't have to turn a certain way (which actually kills my arm lol), but he's been great. I've been doing all flatwork with him and his canter is so smooth. I actually just jumped him recently and he can go up to about 3' or more, so I've been told. One thing I found out about that is good luck slowing him down after a jump. He really knows what he's doing. 

The second pony came a while later. His name is Dobby and there's a picture of him somewhere in my gallery. He is so spunky and such a brat of a pony. Ever-time you go into a stall with him, he pins his ears and tries to look threatening. Of course that doesn't work, because he's just adorable. His head is so small compared to his body, it doesn't even look like the same pony. Now, he was used as a childrens' pony for a while before coming to the farm, so when I started to work him, he got bratty really quick. He would do these little hops when I ask for the canter, like he was protesting. He wasn't mean or trying to buck me off. He was just being a pony. Weeks later, I think his body has gotten used to the work. I almost screamed ad hugged him the first lesson where he didn't protest at all. And we actually do jump him too. That's quite interesting because he doesn't have that jumping form over the jumps. He just brings his head up and the rest of his body follows in pieces. He's not that motivated, lol. 

Now, for updates on school. I'm going nowhere in he fall, obviously to me. But, I will be checking out school for the spring semester. I'll be starting with school in Florida, and working my way up the east coast. The warmer, the better. I finally convince myself that I need to get out of Vermont for college and go a far away as possible. I'm still looking for a Graphic Design major. 

In other news, my ex-boyfriend and I have been pretty closes this whole summer (put two and two together). Nothing I'm too proud of, but after going back and forth with my emotions, I finally just told him. We can only be friends. We will never date again. I thought it would be fine and we would just move on with our lives, but that night I felt, well, empty. It'll hurt I'm sure, but I'm more worried about what he'll do. In any case, I no long have to worry about that. It's done. I should be happy and just move on, right? 

:heart: I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Enjoy your weekend! :heart:
