Sorry for the delay

I’m really sorry for not updating this journal for… well, seems like forever. I figured I’d start writing regularly but that turned out to not be the case. A few things got in my way. Ever since I started working at Infusionsoft, I’ve had less of a desire to come back home and sit at the computer… again. The reason being, that most of my code-cravings are taken care of at work. Seriously, I love it. As a result I don’t really feel like coming back home and sitting in front of the computer.

The second thing was that my parents were here for a long time, and so I was spending most of my time with them. Then what else… oh yes, there was a thunderstorm and the power went out and my server decided that it didn’t recognize the NIC it had recognized for the past four years. So I went and bought a new one, and as soon as I plugged it in, it recognized the old one. I love computers. Then of course, there’s the fact that I was just pretty lazy. For some insane reason I decided that I wanted to upgrade the server to FreeBSD 7.0 and then I kinda just dragged my foot on setting everything else up.

Finally, there was my getting deployed again. Yeah, you read that right. I was going to Iraq… again. I pretty much found out about it around the time of my WLC training. So there was all the preparation for that. I really wasn’t looking forward to going (who does, anyway?) but I figured I had to (all that duty stuff, raising my right hand, taking the oath). However a few weeks ago I found out that I really didn’t have to go. As it turned out it hadn’t been two years since I got back and so I had the option of not going. So I told my readiness NCO that I didn’t want to go. I have my career to think of, and I think one tour in Iraq is more than enough. I was pretty torn when I had to make that decision. It took me about half a second to decide what I wanted to do. Part of me almost wanted to say “yes”. But I think this is the better decision.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I’m alive and that I’m definitely going to try and write more frequently on this journal. I’m doing a lot of exciting things at work and I’d like to be able to write about them. So, until next time…

No Texas

Woohoo! I don’t have to go to Texas. I won’t be missing any classes! This is excellent news… Everything seems to be working out. I hope it continues to be that way!

Luke AFB

My commanding officer said that he got me Luke Air Force Base. This is very good. Also, it seems that I might not be going to Texas for two weeks. This is also good. I’m on the way to getting my license and getting a car… Hope things work out…

What the hell is going on? No, really… WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

Wow, so anyway I’m in Changi Airport in Singapore right now and I’m like… “Is this an airport or a FREAKIN’ MALL?”

Ok, so next semester looks to be a BLAST. That is, if I am able to do it. I seriously hope I don’t have to go to Texas. I mean, I have no idea where the hell I’m going. I know I’m deployed. But that’s about it. I have to wait until I get to Sweet Home Arizona. Seriously… WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?! WILL SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? NOTHING MAKES ANY SENSE!

Oh look! There is a blue giraffe floating around! His name is Bob! Everyone say hello to Bob! Oh dear, I think he’s quite lost it don’t you think? Oh yes… Most definitely. (Say all that with a British Accent. OTHERWISE IT WON’T SOUND RIGHT!)
