      Wow.
      I haven't posted on here in quite some time. I offer my sincerest apologies to the family. Though I have only missed 7000 or so posts, so the damage isn't too bad.
      I can catch up in a matter of..months.

      However, before I do that, I wanted to stop in and give everyone a little update.

      I have been Training here in Huntsville, Alabama for about two months now. I am damn near finished and about to move onto Eglin AFB in Pensacola.
      I graduate on March 10th and then I will just be out-processing and waiting on my orders. I can't wait. I definitely need to see a beach.
      The weather here in Alabama is fuckin ridiculous. I understand Florida isn't too much better at this time, but Florida isn't Alabama. If anyone in the family lives in Alabama. I am sorry, your state sucks..and they lost the civil war.
      Just sayin.

      Erok, I am lookin forward to hangin out soon. I remember back when I first got my Orders and we planned for the visit.
      It seems so damn long ago. It has been a long 5 or 6 months. I don't know how long it has been.

      I have so much I need to catch up. I have been wrapped up in training unable to really do to much.
      The weekends aren't bad, now that I am phased up and able to leave the post on the weekends and enjoy myself.
      I am also seeing someone, which is totally cool.
      She is a nice slice of pie.

      Hmm Lets see. As far as updates go..this one has sucked...I suppose I don't really have much to update on.
      I probably could talk about my training, but then the government would come after me and maybe kill me for posting classified information on the internet.

      Oh well, I suppose I will just have to get some shit going to so I can update more.
      I will try not to be a Stranger.

      I also bought a Blu-Ray player for my mom and Step Dad, and plan on buying them all a few things to get them started.
      Band of Brothers
      Planet Earth
      and whatever else comes to mind. (Suggestions?)

      They have a big ass TV but have to suffer through normal DVDs..The TV has potential and probably feels like it is being wasted..


      Anyway.
      Yeah...I am just trying to pass the time...

      Dec. 11th I graduated from BCT.

      Glad that is all over with. Now I can move on with my training, however, for now I am going to relax until I report on the 3rd.

      Was it Hard..? The Hardest Part was saying goodbye.

      I made 60 of the greatest friends and grew to love each and every one of them as a brother. Saying Good-bye to them and the Drill Sgt's had me in tears.
      Greatest 10 weeks of my life.

      Hooah!

      This will be my last journal for quite a while.

      If you don't know why...then you probably don't matter.

      Anyway. I miss everyone.
      I will be back of course.

      Lets be real here, I can't quit you people. This place is a big part of who I am.

      No one puts up with a web community for 5 years unless it matters.
      So, I suppose I will chat it up with you guys around the end of the year.

      Tomorrow. Live Free or Die....
      Wednesday. Sgt Lee picks me up at 1500 Hours. I stay in Hotel. Possibly eat out with my family.
      Thursday. Take bus to Meps. Swear in Ceremony at 1100. Take bus to Airport at 1200.

      The rest. Well the rest is just business.

    • No Stripper...

      9 years ago

      SpartanProto

      Yeah, I said it. No Stripper.
      However, there was plenty of alcohol.

      My Stepdad, Younger Brother, and myself arrived around 8pm. Upon arrival, my uncle Dean shoved a shot glass in my face and had me slamming Jim Beam like it was the cure for cancer.
      My older brother arrived a little later followed by my cousin. By brother bought a fifth of Kessler that came with a blue camo hat thing. The hat immediately became my drinking hat for the evening.

      As the night progressed everyone kept slamming shots and drinking beer. Told a few jokes. Played some ping pong. My younger brother was the first person to throw up. Which was no surprise. My Step Dad was the next one to drop. He announced to me that he was drunk. So, to celebrate I suggested we take another shot..so we did. Then we started playing some poker. The pot was only 35 dollars, which wasn't too bad. My Step Dad eventually confessed he couldn't see the cards, so he dissappeared from the table. I quickly claimed his chips, and I am proud to say I am 35 Dollars richer.

      After a while I decided to go around checking on people to make sure they were all still alive. When I walked outside the barn, I saw my Step Dad lying on a rug in front of the camper shirtless passed out. I took that time to tea bag him and made sure we got some pictures proving it.

      So at that time it was just me, my brother, and my uncle left standing. We continued to knock back shots and had some good conversation. My brother disappeared for a while and we later found him in his car..with the card door wide open. Upon closer observation we noticed he was covered in vomit...

      I babysat him for a little bit and got him down to the camper and got him cleaned up and into bed. Then I made sure my little brother was good and comfy as well.

      At that point I said goodnight to my uncle and cleaned up the barn as much as I could. Then I proceeded toast myself a shot and then I went to bed.

      In the morning, My older brother had no clue what transpired during the night. Needless to say he was surprised to his car was covered in vomit, but we had picture evidence to show him.
      My Step Dad was totally hung over and my younger brother said he wasn't bad.

      I felt great. I managed to drink everyone under the table and kept my wits about me so that I could babysit and clean up.

      I don't have the pictures yet, but when I do, I will surely post them for the world to see.
      It was a great night.

      I am not the greatest storyteller in the world, so the pictures will probably do a much better job of explaining things.

      As of now, I have 5 days. I can't wait.

    • From the day you're born...

      9 years ago

      SpartanProto

      until the day you die, if you're one of the poor ones, you just gotta work hard.


      This wait is killing me. Next thursday is the day. That feels like tomorrow, but it is just taking its time to get here. Of course every day up until this point has just flown by like a leer jet.

      Still no idea what I can truly expect from the party on friday.
      Secrets don't make friends.



      I watched the Science channel today. They were doing some specials on the theories of Stephen Hawking. Most people know I admire him quite a bit.
      I learned a little more how about how they believe the empty space in the vast universe has a shape.

      When a shooting star flies through the space, the space around it bends. They say that space has a fluid or wave like motion.

      They also believe that the earth is not rotating around the sun because of a gravitational pull or anything like that. Instead what they theorize is that the Earth is slowly traveling toward the sun sort of like a penny travels around a funnel. It goes around and around until finally it hits the hole. Instead of happening quickly it is goig to take billions of years for us to reach the sun.

      I can only explain it in my idiot terms. If I know all the big words I would be much better. I could probably look it all up and look a lot smart for it, but I really don't feel like doing that.

      HOLY SHIT!
      I just saw a commercial. When did we stoop so low as a society to advertise adultry.

      We live in a sick world.

    • I get a Bye Week

      9 years ago

      SpartanProto

      Yesterday my family treated me to a family get together. It was awesome to see everyone.
      Beer + Corn Hole + A Beastly game of Nerf Football = One hell of a time.

      It was the first time my family has had a party and I got to be the center of attention.
      I am not an attention whore or anything, but I am a middle child dammit. So it was nice.
      There apparently wasn't many pictures taken during the party, but I will have my chance to get some pictures soon enough.
      9623_1054117451753_1790311243_107730_683

      At the party I heard My Uncle John, Uncle Dean, Brother Justin, Cousin Devin and my Uncle Mark all talking amongst the selves. I heard them talking about a female entertainer. However, when I tried to get into the conversation, I was quickly told to leave because it had nothing to do with me.
      Later on the drive home my Brother called and told me not to make any plans for Friday, or Saturday. When I asked as to why he said he couldn't tell me.

      SO, needless to say, I am pretty sure we having a not so Family Oriented get together this Friday. Which I am pretty stoked for.
      If by chance they take it upon themselves to get me a stripper, I will be a happy camper.

      My family knows me well enough to know what kind of entertainment I desire.

      oh cool, is said comic up anywhere?

    • BloodySparow

      9 years ago

      haha, I guess I forgot to ever really explain that...

      Duendes are essentially hispanic gnomes. They're figures from superstitions of hispanic cultures in South and Central America.
      My roommate's Aunt and Uncle are convinced they have one living with them, between balls randomly rolling through the house and the uncle apparently seeing it in the bathroom.

      There are supposedly two kinds of Duende, the playful kind that like you'll see messing with toys like that ball... and then the mischievous kind that like to hide your keys and fuck your shit up. (I always lose track of my keys, so I tend to joke that one of those cheeky bastards are following me)

      My roommate explained all this to me after I showed him a video I found on the youtube of a duende in Argentina (probably not real) and we found more videos of them on there.

      You can find them pretty easily... it's all pretty much the same though, poor quality phone cameras of spanish speaking dudes just chillin when the guy handling the phone barely notices someting moving, focuses on it to find that it's a duende, then everyone there freaks out as the duende runs and the video ends.

      I'm pretty sure it's a hoax, they sort of look like computer graphics despite the camera moving around so much, the poor quality of the video just makes it a little more believable.
