Im going to the Sandbox

I found out this week, that if you are going to be stationed at Langley, you have to get medically approved. Now this struck me kind of strange, because in the Air Force, when you have to have medical clearance, that means your going to an overseas base. After some questioning, I found out that only two state side bases require clearance, because they are highly deployed. After more investigation, I found out that I am most likely going to be going to Iraq, or Afghanistan by the end of the year for at least 120 days. I personally am kind of looking forward to this, but at the same time I can't say im not scared. Pray for me if your religious, lord knows im not.

Today was...

a really really good day that I haven't had in a long time. But it ended in one of the worst things that could ever happen to me. In respect to the party involved im not going to be "highschool" and bitch about it online and embrasses people. Its bad...thats all im going to say and I don't know how to handle it. Im devastated.....

The day started out really well, with I finding out that when I graduate I get to come home...and stay home. Yes, Im getting stationed at Langley Air Force Base Newport New, Virgina. Its just far enough from home, and close enough. Plus I can still take temporary duties in other counties, so I can still see the world. I mean im so lucky. Really. Oh and did I mention that the plane that Langley has is the F-22 Raptor, the most current fighter jet the world has seen. For those who don't know, its the plane in big budget movies of late like "Iron Man", and "Transformers". I was so happy today, I was giddy to the point of shaking. To top it off, various minor things throughout the day kept going my way. Than I had the worst news dropped on me. If you want to hear about it feel free to call me, in fact I would like that, so I can have someone to talk to about it because I don't know what to do......Its going to be a rough few more weeks. All I know is I better get some Pruitt Nags Head Beach House treatment the week I get home with my boys. I need me some Beer Pong tournaments, and some games of landmine more than ever.

Mike Rowe of "Dirty Jobs" apparently did my new job in the air force. I would of embedded it, but Discovery Channel stops me from doing so.

random thoughts from a nicotine addict

I really don't think anyone reads this. I saw the "Watchmen" last night for free here on base. I want my two hours back. Im not going to lie, I was giddy when it started. I actually walked out before it was over. I understand now why Alan Moore, the author, wants nothing to do with it, and his name wasn't in the opening credits. Im not going to lie, the movie starts out really good. I give the director credit as well for actually redoing many frames from the graphic novel. But the Finale, which you cannot change or a major plot line and metaphor of the story, was completely rewritten. Oh and yes this graphic novel is extremely graphic in nature, but I mean common. Some of the action scenes were like watching a gore shocker horror film. I must say in all seriousness...fuck this movie.

Im supposed to graduate April 7th, which I plan on comming home. I am no longer going to Mountain Home, Idaho. Im getting a new assignment, which gives me a decent chance of getting Langley. Ive been informed with how the Air Force gives assignments, and to make a long story short, I have a chance of getting Langley. This would make me a little happier because I could go to Richmond, or home to see friends on the weekends.

Im looking into buying a car as soon as im settled in my permanent assignment. Im almost siding with getting a Mazda 3, for its fairly low price and pretty good gas mileage. I may just still settle with a Jetta though.

Ive been going to the gym whenever I feel up too it lately. I don't want to be some big guy, I just want to look decent. Its bad enough im hairy, I might as well look ok with it. It would be cool to be able to crush a mans skull in my biceps though. I am however in the best shape of my life seeing as the Air Force is making me run 2 and a half miles three days a week in under twenty minutes.

I just want to apologize to anyone whom I consider a dear friend to me for not seeing them very much, or at all over my Christmas break. I spent all of my time with a girl whom I thought I was going to marry, and her family. Because of that I barely saw my own family, and didn't see most of my friends at all. I wish I could go back and play that out again. I would of saw all of you instead of wasting my time with someone who decided afterwards that they can't be with someone who is in the military, like its some kind of bad life. Fuck it, lesson learned, I will see you all in two months. I promise this.

new year

I went home for the first time in six months for Christmas. Derrick I truly am sorry for missing you. I spent ninety percent of the time with Laura getting to know her family. I think Ive been accepted. I know her mother already loved me, but I had yet to of met her sister or father. I feel a little shitty for not seeing my parents or friend very often but we're trying to figure out if shes going to move to Idaho with me or not. Because of the we had to spend as much time together as we could. From what she says, I'm the only guy shes dated that her Father likes. Its just scary because I in all seriousness want to spend the rest of my life with her. But to be real....and im saying, lets get Real for a second. I don't want to jump into a marriage, but shes most likely not going to be able to move out there with me. I can't afford her, and she still has two years left of school, which I want her to finish. It just hurts because im scared too death that shes going to end up meeting somebody else that's better than me. Than I would slump back in to the drinking and smoking too much depressed Steve that everyone loves because hes funny, but unhappy. That and I would most likely slump into a major depression which would effect my job, which I would lose and ruin my life. I officially move to Idaho in 29 days. I think Ive just decided to volunteer for any and every deployment to the middle east.
