The Saga Continues

So...here I am. Been in the desert for a few weeks now and eh...it isn't so bad. Me being the me that I am, I always try to make the best of whatever situation I find myself in and while I could think of several places I'd rather be spending my Autumn season (considering this is 3 of the last 4 I've spent on foreign soil), I guess doing my job in the AOR is better than not having a job at all.

Since I've been in country, the military went through and did away with their policy of kicking out people for their sexual preference. A progressive step in the right direction in my humble opinion but not one that has overly impacted my life just yet (doesn't help that I'm in a country where homosexual activity is illegal) but I'm sure somewhere down the line I'll be glad for this bit of change...aside from having to listen to all the butch MPs talking about how much they prefer pussy to cock in the chow hall anyway..... *shudder*

Life itself is still pretty much life itself. I've worked myself into a fairly solid routine of workin, eatin right and exercising. Hell I've ran so much that my poor ole Nike Shox damn near have a hole in the sole :/ Poor things have been with me since NoDak and I think after this deployed they shall be retired to oblivion (and a landfill somewhere) before I decide on the next pair of child-in-third-world made foot accessory...

I'd like to think I've changed alot over the past few years.... all these trips overseas, financial and relationship stability, a few wake up calls and questions about how I'm living my life has led to an awakening or two. While I have no regrets from my past, I would probably go back and do a few things differently given the option. I aint no saint by any stretch of the animation and my road to Hell has long sense been paved with the best of intentions. But good intentions only getcha so far, right?

Of course some will never see it either way. They either don't like me and never will or refuse to see any negativity within me. I like to think there is folly in both situations but you can't go around trying to change people. I've accepted THAT fact a long time ago....

Almost feels like I'm rambling but eh...its early in the morning, the sun is just starting to rise over the sandbox and I think I'm entitled to ramble slightly in the seldom used part of my internet world that very few people ever pay attention to. :) Nice really considering the attention and comments I get via FA, Twitter and Facebook to have a place to ramble that not too many see......

Ahhh this lost all sense of focus awhile ago....

But fuck it. Tis what it tis what it tis.

Someone just sent me an IM that said "make me happy"...

People still come at me for that, eh? Whoda thunk it?

To the rescue, I guess.......

But...it's...different. I've been so happy/content over the past 2 years or so that I've almost forgotten what it is to NOT be in a good mood. My acceptance of life and my place in it (along with budding financial stability) has taken all the stress out of things.

I'd drink to that if I wasn't in a dry country.... guess the cigars this evening will have to suffice.

anyway. Rambled enough....

As you were.......................
