One of these things I had to focus on and be done with already was, my B.S. Guess what? I did it, and my degree was conferred TODAY. I already have two Associate's degrees and have been working on my B.S. in Forensics for a while now. It has taken me a couple deployments, multiple moves across the country, various TDYs ranging from weeks to months long, mandatory courses required for my job, and every other thing that life brings but, I did it. I was just tired of being so close and when we got up here I made a goal that before we leave NJ (which will be a year from this December) I will finish it. Not only did I finish it, but I'll be in my Master's program for forensic investigation way before we leave here. My Master's I can take as long as I want on, it won't have the pressure that the B.S. had, for various reasons.
A recap on what has been going on the past 2.5 months: Klein made significant dressage improvements after a couple enlightening lessons, Klein did a couple more Prelim CTs and did great, after getting Mochs sound barefoot I decided to shoe her in the front anyway for a couple reasons, I got Mochs going the best she ever has by committing to putting more time into her and getting her out more, Mochs went to a dressage show and got 60%+ on both her tests that day, two weeks after that I took her to a CT and she won her division, we had a few shows for August but Klein kicked the living hell out of Mochs and she is currently finishing up the last two weeks of a six week period of rest, Wes continues to look amazing and be his usual happy gelding self. Oh yeah, and after much demand, Manny got his own Instagram (the_manny_lion).
