2019 looks like just, well, Wake Up, Girls! Thus far. And honestly I really ought to cut back on eventing since I am particularly poor from buying an expensive toy (like, a new car) so I think I have to cut back this year, and not just say I have to.
This year is also a good year to start to reorganize and tidy some parts of my life. Declutter. I need to get ready for 2020 which probably will involve a M@STER OF IDOL WORLD or something.
With WUG final in the rear view mirror, I feel all the more a need to take it easy. Emotionally that was really hard, mainly because I fell even harder during the Aichi and Sendai stops before getting it sealed up at SSA. It’s a lot to think about.
A lot of the items later on in the air I omitted because I don’t really know what’s going to happen especially after July. The two local cons for sure will be easy access.
