|This is my original saddle - it doesn't fit Orion well|
|The new saddle - subtle differences|
|Browband of one of the new headstalls - the same flowers are etched in all four pieces of tack|

Today I closed a lot of doors with school. I completed - or mostly completed - a lot of things. I have a table left to do for my thesis corrections/additions - the only reason I have this left is because on three different computers today I received errors when trying to run the process. Boo on you Arc10. I have graphs for another report - but I probably won't do them. I completed that report, completed revisions on my thesis and review paper, designed and completed my power point presentation for my one class, wrote one of two thank you letters, and sent a lot of email to F&WS about the job.
What? Job? That's right, job. Two days ago my friend that works at F&W wrote to tell me they had funding to hire a second person. Yesterday I got accepted into Oregon State's online GIS master's certificate program. I forwarded F&W the email. The director emailed me back today wanting a ton more information on me. I sent it all. So, **fingers crossed** - I may be getting that job after all! As some doors closed, others are opening. I'm super excited for the possibilities that are in front of me.
