Day 1 of 31…

So I finished my Wavehaven tail last night. Yay! 3 different shades and textures of blue and black. I’m happy with how it turned out. Its kind of heavy but I like how it sits and flows.


I also did some coloring last night. I started on a fish. It was meant to look like Stormfly but I’m fairly sure that’s not going to happen.

I think that I am going to spend part of my day on music, downloading and ripping, until my kindle fire shows up, then set that up. And then I have work for the first time in a month tonight.

So I’m not really sure on what to talk about today, so I’m going to start one of the 31 day challenges today. I’m actually going to mix and match 2 of them.

Day 1


Hi, I am the Equine Mistress of the Dark. The name was bestowed upon me by Greg Proops at one of his Smartest man in the world Podcasts. I liked it so much that its stuck around.

I am an avid horse lover and equestrian, if you haven’t picked that up yet. I have my own horse and just got a job working at a stables riding horses for a huge trainer in our area. I am very excited about that.

But this all started as a way for me to keep track of my day. My good and bad ones. And to see that even though I don’t feel like it, I am improving from my mental health issues. I write down my coping skills and what I used them for. I want to share them so other people have the tools that I didn’t initially. I mean for sure, go get help. Going through this alone is super hard. And I know its a hard thing to ask for help. But do it. It’ll be better in the long run; who knows, it might end up saving your life. It ended up saving mine.

So my currently relationship status.

I am quite happily taken.

I met and know my boyfriend through multiple ways. He’s one of my brothers friends and we also played amtgard together. So he’s been in my life for over a good 10 years. We really became close when I started going through the police academy and needed a shooting buddy. Well, I didn’t need one, I wanted one. We would go shooting once or twice a week. He started out better than me, but it didn’t stay that way for long. But I also was putting more hours in from school, shooting with my mentor, and going when he wasn’t able to.

So we’ve been dating for over 3 years, we’ve been living together for most of that time it feels like. I think it was so much easier by being friends before, and having so much in common. We also knew a lot about each other before we started dating.

When we first started dating would spend so much time over at his place. And I worked graveyard shifts and his place was closer than mine, so I would stop at his place and fall asleep there on the weekends. It just kind of became a pattern from there.

This really feels more like a partnership. We are throwing as much effort into it as the other is. We both want the best for each other and keep pushing. We support each other in whatever endeavors we have. He’s an amazing person, helping me through all my troubles. And a bonus is that Gucci likes him, which hasn’t happened before.

Sure, he has his faults and weakness’, but don’t we all. I feel like his plus’ outweigh the negatives, as it should be.

We are goofy together. He can always make me laugh when I’m upset, and I can do the same to him. He knows when no words and needed, just hugs and body contact, or when to leave me alone to figure things out. I haven’t had to tell him any of this, he just seems to know or has picked up on it. He makes me feel amazing, smart, and beautiful even when I don’t feel like I am any of those things.

That’s why I love him so much.


Back to normal life…

Yup, I spent most of my day downloading music onto the computer and playing it. I did some coloring for a while as I’m waiting for my kindle fire to show up and distract me for a few hours before I go to work tonight. That reminds me, I should download some podcasts… hrm…

What kind of podcasts do you listen to?

I also ordered stuff for my boyfriends birthday today. He knows his one present so I’ll share it. He has a love of hoodies. So I got him the Fallout 4 Vault 111 Hoodie. But that’s all I’ll share because he is supportive and reads my blogs.
