Dec. 26th, 2010 @ 02:54 am Ho ho ho...
The Christmas season is now officially over, and I have to say it was a little on the other side of the globe. The dust was out on Christmas Eve, it gave the illusion of a snowy night, and was quite on the cold side. There is nothing significant that has been happening in my days. Ground Hog day has started, and I am trying my best to mix it up.
I have found my camera again, and I am off to get some great photos while I am here. I started snapping photos on a glorious Christmas day, and will continue to do so while I am out here in wonderful Afghanistan.

(I really didn't have a whole lot to talk about, but I managed to come up with a little something to place upon this grand blog.)

The above is being sang in the style of Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again."

It's been a moment, and I am glad that I am able to write on this wonderful medium. I really have nothing to vent about thus far. My life is consisting of work/studying/food, the gym, and sleep. That's about all there is to do in my world at the moment.

It is going to be a long one, but a good one. I am out here with many an awesome individual at the moment, and for that I am thankful. I am enjoying life, and enjoying it well.

I'll be back... and I am sure I'll have something a little more awesome in the near future

Nov. 17th, 2010 @ 03:44 pm Three day recap.
The week can best be described so far as a mix of good and bad. I began the week in my old shop, and it is a lame reflection of how things used to be. The new regime is not like the old, and it is for the worse. I was approached by an individual, and he hit me with this, "It's nice to know that someone in your shop and on this shift will know what they're doing." Sayings like this just make you think back to when you and your counterparts were a well oiled machine. Looking at your defunct replacements just makes you sad, and makes you wonder what the hell happened?


Well, I'll tell you what happened. Turnover happened. My generation was replaced by people who take our business as a joke. It's a joke to them because they were told "how easy it is", and these new people now won't take the work seriously. Thus, creating fuck-ups that will soon be catastrophic like they've been at our sister units, but ladies and gentlemen school was in session on Monday. This guy laid it down old school. I went out and did my job (which can't be said of the gaggle of tards that I now have the pleasure of working with), and when I was done I felt accomplished. I found many things that by being on the outside I was not able to sometimes see.

I will leave my mark, and as those before me have said, "Just make things better than when you found them." That is my goal. That I am able to turn some trending issues around before my short period of time is up in my shop. It'll never be like it was, and it is sad. It is sad to watch the decline of it all. Especially when your shop was a trendsetter. Your shop was the shop that others wanted to be like. When you have friends from other jobs letting you know that your shop is a sad state of affairs you tend to take it to heart, or at least I do.


Part Two:


I rolled into work, and it was an easy morning. Took care of a few things in order to ease next week. Then in the afternoon I was told of my new bosses expectations, and I in turn gave him mine. I asked him to hold me accountable for my actions. I'm not the type to pawn off blame when it was clearly my fault. That can be the problem with many people in my field of expertise, and it is just upsetting. No one wants to take responsibility at all.
Anywho, where were we? Expectations. It was a nice session, and it was filled with venting by both parties. Yet in the end we both spoke about things in order to help people along. I discussed some issues that I felt were muy importante, and he did the same. It was a good productive afternoon.


Reflecting on things that I've put to this medium. I honestly feel that some things will turn around, and begin moving in a positive direction. The sooner the better, because otherwise these "replacements" will be slapped in the face with a brutal reality that they just never were able to see coming.

Nov. 14th, 2010 @ 10:23 pm This is how it will begin.
I started the week like any other. I viewed a documentary on a great American architect, and it made me reflect on decisions I've made.


In watching this I've made a decision or three that I will effect my life from here on out.
I'm starting my online journal once more in order to talk about the things that I enjoy and despise. I will make it a point to sketch at least thirty minutes a day in order to become skilled again. I will make it a point to read for at least thirty minutes prior to my bed time. Lastly (but first and foremost), I will study in order to make the best of my current career.


These are just a few of the things that I will begin to do again. Starting life anew , and taking it all as it comes.

This is a new beginning, and it is starting with this newly established "blog". As much as I don't want to call it such a thing it is what the world deems it, and I am here to accept it. This one is mine, and it begins this night.

Of course I have not forgotten about you, hell I am going to buy a phone so that I can update you on the go. Just know that I have been a little busy with work and the fact that I will be traveling home soon. Until then don't wait up late hours for me; you'll just be disappointed.
Talk to you soon LJ, I'll be back in no time.

I know it has been a week, but I have not forgotten about the world of LJ.
Things around the office are changing; most of the new crew is here and let me tell you. A few of them are not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

It has been a difficult week actually, between taking care of the new guys and just chaos it has been a trying time. Things should be easing up soon though.
Oh!, I have injured myself yet again and it really sucks this time. I have strained my lower abdominal and it is not cool, Dr.'s remedy is Neproxen and not doing anything for two weeks, ie; no gym/running. It sucks, but what can you do when you are getting my age. Actually, it was the 5k that did me in. So much for thinking I was the heat for a day, but it was a nice realization. I just don't know if it was worth the price.

That is about all I have to report, I think the last thing I want to mention is that I feel sorry for the people I will leave behind. They are going to suffer the wrath of the new regime and it just makes me sad for them.

Deuces!

The internet is so damned slow!

I had a day and I also had a day yesterday. Saturdays are not that grand because my work wife is off. So I spend most of my time with people in the office I get along with, but really do not get along with. It makes for awkward meals and so on.

So today, it was a simple day and it will be simple tomorrow as well. I finished it all off with a much needed run and I have to say that it was refreshing. Which brings me to about an hour ago. I met for coffee, which has become the norm, and was greeted by Mrs Debra. We discussed things while I ate my meal and then Miss Jenna rolled on up. She was on crack I swear it. Come to find out that it the Hydroxycut that she currently feeling. She was all over the place and being a natural Gemini I think it just brought out her other side even more. It was good but towards the end was getting a little on the side of out of control. >=)

Anwyho, I have my Monday planned already and it should go that way as long as some freak instance does not roll on in.

Just wanted to throw something down before my time was up. I know this was a little routine, but that is all I have at the moment. Ahh, Groundhogs Day

It has been a week all, I honestly can't remember all the happenings, but it is another month down. Today is my day off and I am not going to do much of anything today.
Let me try to recount the weeks events, work slowed, I am making a decent friend finally on my side of the base (I am geographically separated from my former co-workers).
I think I just tried to stay busy because that is all you can do here.

Other than the above because I know it was so detailed (enter sarcasm). I have fallen into a slump and it is not cool. I find myself not wanting to let people know what is wrong. It is kind of hard though, I am just realizing that I will have to let certain things go when I return. Start pulling back on the lifestyle I would love to live but I know I won't be happy living.

I really have no thought process right now and will try this another time. Maybe when I have something real to write about or can collect, organize, and express my thoughts the right way.
