    • First update in over a year I think....

      12 years ago


      Well....lots of stuff has ahppened since last time I logged into this website....most important, I joined the Canadian Armed Forces....that was 9 months ago, recently finished training and I am now a fully qualified Tank driver and Maintainer for the Leopard C2 Main Battle Tank.

      It's a good life, I will be deployed to Afghanistan in January of '08, really looking forward to it.

      anyways, guaranteed I won't stop back for a while as I am almost always busy.
      drop me a line at and I will answer, I check that every day, also my msn so its running constantly

    • I'm BACK!!

      13 years ago


      Ok, it's been ages since I have been around and was brought back by an old friend adding me to his contact list went something like this...

      Me: Who the HELL are you?
      Him: I'm from RVB!
      Me: holy crap, I've still got an account there??

      slightly exaggerated, but that is more or less what happened

      in recent AND not so recent news...

      Worked at Keg Steakhouse
      graduated high school
      Began first year of college
      Got fired from Keg Steakhouse and bar
      began training nights a week of martial arts
      finished first year of college
      hated first year, not doing second year
      enlisted with the army as an armoured crewman

      I leave in 1 month :)

      that is a quick sum up of my last year, haha, kinda boring

      oh well, don't even know if anyone is still reading my journal

    • another day in the office...

      14 years ago


      im stuck in my office for the next four hours with nothing to do what-so-ever, catch is I've got to STAY in there, can't leave but for more then a few minutes and I've got to stay in my dress uniform for the day.,....ERGH!!!

      ill update this later as I get more bored then I am now


      So I lied a bit, I got dragged out to mark leadership tasking for the cadets since one of our other staff did something really fucking stupid and got released from service and sent home....just sitting in my office right now waiting to go to the range so I can coach kids all day on how to shoot

    • quick update

      14 years ago


      ok, I've got access to an officer computer at almost any time I'm off duty and my officer isn't taking it up. So to just let you guys know, I'm two and a half weeks in and starting to lsoe my mind, just a bunch of whiny cadets for $66 a day. I'm working as a Range Sergeant, so I only teach classes and give briefings on rifle safety and marksmanship, coach cadets as they shoot, babysit while they aren't shooting and fix the rifles they jam on me. not much to my job and I get a lot of days off and I DO enjoy my job, I get to yell and bitch at retards in my spare time, or just head into Victoria whenever I'm bored.

      but this is just a quick update, so if anyone wants to actually talk, write to me at

      have a good summer all, you can also drop me a message here or reply to this journal, but mostly I just check my email nowadays

      well, saturday morning im leaving to go to a military base as Staff to train cadets for 7 weeks, so I don't know about internet access, if I DO have access to internet, i'll try and update this journal thingie once or twice while I'm there, not back till august 20th

      in other news, things are looking a bit up with girl from work, mentioned to ehr that I would have a mailing address for summer fi she wanted to write because I don't know if I'll have email access.....she said yeah, i forgot....asked her again a few days back if she really watned it I could go find it, she said yes again, i wrote it out, gave it to her, she dissappears, comes back 2 mintues later and gives me her address.....Theo sees what I got, and he says "hot damn man"

      so thats the upside, who knows, mebbe i'll get home and shell have dumped that loser guy who wont let her hang out with guy friends and I'll have a chance..... ciao all

    • are girls really worth the effort?

      14 years ago


      ok, scenario, really hot girl from work, talk with, flirt with, chat with all night, make date for going to movie as friends and co-workers.........great scenario, eh? not really, turns out shes seeing some guy who got a little upset over it all and now were barely talking

      load of bull, but whatever, her whole reason for cancelling on movies with me was coz she didnt want to hurt his feelings....

      jsut my luck, and here i thought she might be interested in single.....i was a little dissappointed to find out wshe was seeing someone......kinda put me in a bit of a funk.....

      im off for guitar playing and then sleep, ciao all.....pity me

      ps. would it be a good sign for her to say shes "seeing someone" instead of "dating" or "boyfriend"? i hope it is, but i dont wanna feel like a jackass again

      Canada has an air force?

      If I were to join any military branch in the US, it would be the Air Force (except I couldn't do shit for flying since I don't have 20/20 and the long term effects of corrective surgery aren't known yet) followed by the Marines.
