English 8th and 9th

What would you like to be your greatest accomplishment?

I would love to own and ride a champion reining horse. I love the sport and work hard at competing in reining, but I'm still not very good. However, it is a blast trying!

 What is one thing you just can't resist?

I cannot resist anything to do with horses. I am a "junky" for sure. Oh and a Code Red Mountain Dew.

 What's the weirdest job you have ever had?

The weirdest job I had was taking surveys in a call center. It was long and tedious and awful. I got hung up on a lot!

 You're hosting a dinner party. Who are the 3 people, living or dead, you would invite, and why?

I honestly hate cooking! So I'd likely just invite all my family and friends to meet me at a restaurant instead.

 What is the greatest challenge you have overcome so far in your life?

Not sure I've overcome it yet, or ever will, but I do not know my "right" and "left" without really thinking about it. That makes reining really difficult because it's all about direction! I have learned how to make it work for me and learned to compensate for the difficulty.
