      Question

      3 years ago

      I still come to this site from time to time.... Why? My friends have moved on and I basically just order the Dvds that Roosterteeth puts out at the end of every season.

      I'm honestly considering closing this account down and possibly starting anew, Even with 6 years under the belt.

      We'll see.

      I can no longer be referred to as a "Single" on an official form.

      Just a bit of worry, and a dash of happy

      4 years ago

      I've been going to physical therapy for a shoulder problem that has existed since my childhood, but only now presents an issue. This is actually my second bout of physical therapy for what my provider calls "Shoulder Joint De-Stabilization".

      Basically the tendons in my right shoulder are lazy, and aren't keeping the bones in the shoulder joint together like they should. The result: My shoulder dislocates and resets with normal everyday movement, keeping me in a distracting amount of pain throughout my day.

      Now, if this hasn't changed by the 11th, I'm going to be sent to Orthopedics and evaluated for surgery. My right arm is my dominant arm for everything... So how am I going to work for the 2-3 months of healing time? Even worse, the shoulder can still prove to be a problem after healing.

      At that point I'll be sent to various med-boards and possibly Medically Seperated from the Navy with full benefits and G.I. Bill... Not really the way I want to go out, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

      On a happier note, April 21st of 2011 Jessica and I are going to be married. It's going to be a small court-house event, but later I'll be giving her the ceremony she deserves. So as of now I have 20 days of Bachelor-hood left, and I don't have any doubts or fears for that matter...

      Anyways, there's that update.

      See you guys later,
      Darren.

      Is the Military a good decision?

      4 years ago

      Some say yes, other say no.

      I'm currently on the fence, while there are pros and cons to being in the military, there are also pros/cons to being a civilian again.

      My main issue is this Gov't Shutdown that threatens to make us service members go an un-determinable amount of time without being paid. AND we're expected to show up to work... well, I am... It's what I get for picking a medical rate.

      BUT... There is a new deal going around that'll allow active duty members to go reserve to help the 9,000 booting of sailors. Any active duty member that has at least 2 years active duty service (I'm almost to one year) can leave their active duty obligation and become reserve. I believe on May 19th, 2012 I'll be eligible for this choice, which I'm sure to take because I'll be keeping my benefits and be able to start going to school again while avoiding a deployment...

      Not expecting alot of repsonses here but what are your opinions regarding the Military as a life decision?

      Request?

      4 years ago

      For some reason I wondered if someone could draw me in the same kind of outfit that Andy Samberg/Justin Timberlake wears in the "Mother Lovers" video.

      Just thought it'd be interesting.

      New Laptop=New Shtuff

      4 years ago

      Well, not many people reads these journals and only one person ever really replies... But I'm still gonna write this anyway.

      Got an Alienware M15x the other thanks to a friend's Premium Dell Account, the little monster runs beautifully. Gonna get Dead Space 2 for the PC on Monday when my Tax Return slides in (hopefully). I'm playing it on the 360 and it's awesome as fuck. Also getting a new phone... this Moto Cliq needs to be replaced. Everything is pretty good with Jess and I, gonna go home to see her next weekend.

      I started WoW again with a buddy of mine off of Live, I'm mainly Horde on the server Eredar. (Troll-Druid lvl 17, Goblin-Hunter, lvl 12) [email protected] is my Battlenet account.

      Other than all is well, I actually started working in my department here in the clinic in Groton, Connecticut. So thats exciting... but there's news about some kind of snow-storm thats supposed to hit today and into tomorrow... so unless some unfortunate miracle that the power goes out comes to pass... I'll be on WoW and Dead Space 2 most of the day... I mean... I've been caught out in these storms and they aren't fun.

      Anyways, thats my post for today... I have to start screening records for these sub-schoolers soon... and got my appt today too. Post later.

      SRS BSNESS

      4 years ago

      I was home for teh Holidays this year... I even got to see my Dad. He didn't yell and wasn't mad at me... He even HUGGED me... for the first time in almost a year. I almost cried because I love the guy and I want to make him proud of me w/o losing myself in the process... I received a 250Gb Xbox 360S, an 8Gb Xbox 360 Memory Stick, a $50 Gift card to Best Buy, a couple of nice shirts, and C.K. sweater from my father, and some sick belts. I bought Jess a Kindle with Wi-fi and 3G capabilities. And she somehow managed to get me to watch the first season of Grey's Anatomy and got me past the first disc of season 2. (First Willow manages to get me to watch Buffy AND Angel COMPLETELY, along with some episodes of Desperate Housewives.... and now this... The things I do...) She even got me to have a couple of Smirnoff Ices... I liked them :D

      We left earlier today only to return to a blizzard and delayed opening at work tomorrow here in chilly Groton, CT. But on my fiancee's way home... Jess got a flat tire in the middle of said blizzard...

      I was scared due to the shiesty road conditions... but she assured me she was fine, and had a tow-truck come to bring her a spare tire. She didn't want me to go for her, seeing it'd be dark by the time we got there... this all happened after a co-worker and I went to a nearby empty mall lot to pull off some donuts and skids.... We also helped jumped a fellow Corpsman's car battery and THEN picked up two random sailors from a nearby Train Station... Who THEN bought us Taco Bell on the way back to base...

      I ended my night with some Fable III... Still playing...

      My 21st b-day is this Thursday, which I'll be celebrating by going to Dave and Busters with a Boot-Buddy attending too. so it's an eventful week... kinda... I'm also looking forward to get my travel claim reimbursed ($300-400) which would go nicely for my b-day present to me.

      Anyways, it's nice posting again... All thanks to Jess lending me her laptop for this short week away... Missed the site.

      It's a miracle for me, too lol. I figured any relationship of mine would have fallen apart by now, but we're still going strong.

      And oh joy

      I've been through that before.
      Then again i've been on the end that gets someone right after, too. It wasn't much better, in my case.
