January 2018

January of 2018 was the last time I was here.   It's been a long time. Lot's changed. I broke a couple of times, picked myself up. Still kicking.   Might write a short story or two. About something.
 

Post-Basic and @Tech School

It's been a while.   A long while. Not exactly sure of the time frame to be honest, but it may be far too long.   Well, where was I? Air Force Basic Training, 323rd Training Squadron, Lackland AFB, Texas. Had a fantastic time. Grew a lot. Lost 15lbs, almost made honor grad, and met some great people(and some awful people.).   Now, I'm at Tech School for Weather. Meteorology. Cloud science. Keesler AFB, Mississippi. I have about 6 1/2 months ahead of me and I'm looking forward to getting past

On Writing

Some stories are like corn. It takes a few attempts and a few crops before you can grow the perfect earful. Also it takes a lot of time.   Then some stories are like random roaches in the Walmart parking lot. Before you know it, they have run up your pant leg and are getting cozy with your privates.

The Arrival of Logan, Ft. LEGO Batman

Saw three films recently, Arrival, Logan, and LEGO Batman.   Gotta say, all three really blew my expectations out of the park and were fantastic films.   Arrival was one of the best Sci-Fi films I have seen in a long time. You know why? It has a lot less to do with "DIE ALIEN SCUM" and more with actually just communication. It was fascinating and I loved it so much. The big reveal at the end and how it all played out just made it perfect. Definitely recommend seeing it.   Logan was very good

Still not over FO:4

Yeah, beating a dead horse but I'm still not over what FO:4 should have been. Could have been. Graphics were great, I loved the settlement building(but I think they should have cut down on the amount of settlement locations...), the Gunplay was great, but other then that....it kinda sucked. Period.   Ah, oh well. Can't have a good thing all the time.

Dusty....

..is a great name for a dog. Horrible condition for a blog however.   Not saying I'm writing some Bionicle-ish stuff(and totally not saying I found some random books of Bionicle for like, $3 books for a box full at a garage sale), and I'm not saying I may be more active.   I'm just saying Dusty is a great name for a dog.

Here I Am

Well, it's a new year. 2017.   Last year wasn't that bad for me. Made a lot of friends. Learned a lot. Got hurt a lot. Picked myself up a lot. Lot of good artists died, though; that was upsetting.   But what about here?   My original intent of coming here, just to RolePlay is dead. I have no time for that anymore. I'm coming up on enlisting in the National Guard and I was promoted to full time at work.   I still have stories swimming about in my brain though. Things and thoughts I should put

Black Friday

It's not worth it. I've worked in both retail and the food business. Don't go Black Friday shopping at midnight. Or at 3AM. Wait until like 7AM like a reasonable person. They'll still have TV's before Christmas. Those waffle toasters you're jazzed about? Still there. The latest iBox game? Boy, lemme tell you something about the way they will have it.   Enjoy family. Give thanks for all the good you have in this world.   Happy Thanksgiving

Dahnald

This election was YUGE.     Seriously though, it's just another 4 years. The sun will come up tomorrow and the world will spin on. It isn't the end of the world.

OshKosh

I'm going to be gone for two weeks, as I am going to OshKosh WI to volunteer at the EAA airshow.   If there's anything anybody needs of me before I leave, message me and I'll try and get it down. At 3AM tomorrow morning, the bus pulls out and I am gone!

Do a computer job....

...get paid with a computer.   That was wild.   I was asked to repair and fix up two computers, both of which are rather fast and good machines once they were fixed. The lady then asked which one was better, so I let her know, and she gave me the slower one as payment.   Not complaining, I needed a good gaming machine....

Overwatch

How did John Marston get transported through time after getting gunned down by federal agents? And why? He looks fatter too.

Getting Wrapped Up Into Things

I have a heart that aches for people that are hurting, that are in need, that need just a bit of help. I have a hard time saying no, because I never want to say no. I don't like denying people help. It just rubs me the wrong way.   But as a result, I can end up getting myself wrapping up in events that I have no clue where they started or where they will end. But that's who I am. It's what I am.   I help people.   And sometimes I find myself suffering for it.

The Art of Moderating

No, this isn't a place to discuss recent, but unfortunate events. No, this isn't an attack on the great staff we are lucky to have. These are four rules I've created for myself, over my time as a moderator(s) and even once as an Admin of various sites. And I feel I should share them.   1. Be respectful. Always. Even when emotions run high, don't attack. It's not worth it, and it doesn't help anybody. Give the staff your respect, and if they are worth their salt, they'll return it.   2. Be acco

Boi

$1,456 in tips since I've started delivering pizzas. And this isn't even a rich town, it's more bordering poor/middle class.     It's a lot of money.
