      I highly doubted that this was still standing. . . but its here.

      Im still a Lance Corpral of Marines but now Im looking at maybe being a Corpral in the next year or less.

      I made it through school and found a doc who could help me out on Geiger, gave me a plan and now im able to do my job and pt on and everyday basis with little to no pain afterwards.

      Im working the night shift and that just rocks, doing lots of maintinence and learning more everyday.

      engaged to the one person i never thought i would be able to be more than just friends to ever again. oh yea high school relationship turned strong friendship and now im going to spend the rest of my life with this guy. So much for my ambitions to be The Cat Lady.

      later!

      Review
      After a year in the Marine Corps i realized alot of myths about the military are true and some are just plain hoj poj

      Navy sucks - Both fact and fiction, occasionally you find squared away squids and then there are Corpsman. they are a breed apart, green with blue blood and some are just tinted blueish around the tips like the toes and the fingers.

      Air Force sucks too - they are on the nasty side but i dont know beyond appearance. every time i try to talk to one they like go to the other side of the side walk.

      Marines are crazy - yes they are, thats was obvious. the first weekend i was here the big story was how this Marine went nuts on these two guys who came home with his girl, stabbed one in the head killing him and stabbed the other enough to put him in critical condition. there are some amazingly awesome Marines here. they are squared away and locked on and then there are the ones who are shit bags but hey no organazation is perfect eh?

      I have my own room in the barracks. i got so lucky for now we shall see here in a week how lucky i can stay. its very quiet and quite cozy, i have the softest blanket on the deck so i sleep very well too.

      i will be off light duty on the 23rd and im almost afraid but Marines arent afraid so im not.
      i just am still not able to run without having to sit or laydown for a majority of the day afterwards. joy.

      Ok, im sorry i didnt update on my 10 days leave when i graduated Boot camp, it did not take me 5 months to go through 3 months of training. although i did get an A.C.L. (ligament in the knee) on training day 12 that they never diagnosed, i found out that i am double jointed. (creepy)

      so when they finally find this tear in my knee i have been on Parris Island for 2 weeks after graduating because of unresolved hip pain. so I had surgury on the 7th of december and i came home for christmas and go back on the 3rd of january. ill find out in 3 months if they are going to keep me in the corps or not. all depends on if my knee is stable enough to run on and coninue on to MCT (Marine Combat Training) the last phase of my training before my MOS (job) schooling.

      they supposedly say that even if i get a medical discharge from the Marine Corps i can still do the job i want in the navy (yes this is my last resort) but if its truly that bad ill just keep my title by itself and not change employers.

      if i do get a med discharge ill still be a marine (as opposed to an admin seperation where they do not recognize that you were in the military even for boot camp) i might just start working at Menards again, full time........ or part time because if i get the GI bill ill have money for school.

      Ahh well, i hope for the best but ive been walking around alot (like im supposed to) and i get this nasty click on my knee every once and a while and its not making me feel better about staying in the corps and then there is the people id be in with. not just complete disregard for rules but they are stupid about breaking them! they make it obvious and think that Marines who have been in the corps for 6-8 years already are STUPID and cant see this. now instead of being free to meander around the squadbay we sit in chairs for 10 HOURS and READ books...... smiley5.gif

      death to them >.<

      and im done now! ill be back tomorrow smiley7.gif

      P.S. i told them smiley1.gif (journal entry before "this is it")

      wow 18 days. this will be odd

      with a little over two weeks i wonder if i can break 18 YEARS of shyness and finally tell those i care about how i truly feel. raised with the comforts of a box, a rock and a small deserted island to call my own (life that is) i have just begun to shed those hamperings over the last year or so.

      well so many things remain done and not done, i had hoped to visit Ireland before going away but schooling scheduals didnt set right

      i wanted to just go somewhere for a week and not care about anything but i was forced to quit my job when school, social and family life became impacted by my very bad relationship with my boss.

      school well that sorta recovered, i stoped skipping it
      social, yea i compensated i see my friends all the time now its nice
      family, has almost never recovered we fight or just stay out of eachothers way alot

      somethings will always be for me, like D&D i like it and the minis. i just dont have the money ot buy like i should if i were to be a good player and magic, ill always have a little intrest even if my decks get outdated. and my computer gaming, it has been a HUGE part of my life since i was less than six years old. i hardly think that will dissapate like they say it will.

      --------------------------------

      -----what i hope to get from my time at boot-----

      i hope i can get the strength of will to stand up for myself and maybe be a little more forceful when i know im right

      i hope i can get the humility to know when to admit to being wrong

      i pray i can make it through my challenges that will be rearing up at me in 18 days

      i know i have the heart to pull through this

      --------------------

      Never give up, never surrender and by God, if Im going to die because of some Shit-Headed, Limp-Dicked Terrorist I'll take the bastard with me.

      and one final note i learned (dont laugh) from a TV show Babylon 5 (highly insirational really) "Never start a fight, but by God, always finish one"
