School, Celebrities, & Other Stuff…

Well… This is going to defiantly be a test of my wills and patience. Just start school up again and the material was coming back to me as I was observing my new classmates. There is a range of people in this class. Male and female, older and young, ethinic, etc… It was going fine but there are some classmates that have to have an opinion about everything! It got a little annoying and wasting time. There’s nothing wrong with asking about situations but when you have to share your experiences with every topic… Don’t need to tell y’all how that comes across. To me it’s like compensating for something or have extremely low self esteem. Other than those classmates, they seem like a good class that really wants to do well and of course my teacher was adorable. I love her. I’m sure I’ll have more stories later on so keep y’all posted on school. 

          My health is finally on better side (ABOUT TIME, right?) Pretty excited about that because I actually like to work out and need to get back into training. Now I just have to work on my damn sleep cycle. (It’s a joke really) I did really well for my last PT test and I don’t want to lose that when I do my next test which I pray to god that I don’t have to do one this weekend. By the way, I have my first drill since being home this weekend. Should be interesting and can’t honestly wait to see the young pups waiting for basic and AIT. Tell y’all about that later.

          What is up with all the celebrities dying?! Holy crap man! First David Bowie, then Alan Rickman, Celine Dion’s husband and brother, Glen Frey (Guitarist for the Eagles), Brian Bedford, and Dan Haggerty.   Most of them are due to cancer… Guess it’s year of the cancer. Celebrities beware!! It is sad to see these great actors go because of illness but not to sound like an ass but I’d rather hear that than them committing sucide, drug overdose, or gruesome as it is murder. These celebs at least lived a full life and did wonderful work in theatre, film, or in music. I think the saddest for me who past is Alan Rickman and Brian Bedford. Rickman played one of my favorite villians in film history. The sheriff  of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Best portait of the historical figure in my opinion. He did other great roles such as Snape in the Harry Potter films and Hans Gruber in Die Hard but the sheriff is my favorite. Bedford did the voice of Robin Hood in the Disney 1979 version. He was more of the theatre but still a fabulous job at whatever role he was given. Humorously enough that two of my favorite actors played in the same movie but different times. One also the villian and the other the hero. 

          Shows what kind of a person I am. Been told that I am 90% devil and 10% angel. Just enough to stay out of hell and enough to barely get into heaven… Or at least to the pearly gates. I will tell you that I’m fiercely loyal, don’t like bullies or bull shitters, loves talking to people, tries to give people chances, and loves adventure. I mean, I joined the military and wanting to become an airborne ranger. If that doesn’t scream adventureous, I don’t  know what does. I just want to do good in the world and help people whenever possible and protect those who can’t do it for themselves. That’s enough about me for the moment.

          I did forget to mention that my mother made me a quilt and I love it! She loves to sew and I love her quilts. Here is her latest quilt.

 

Fitting for who I am and who are family is. I come from a military ancestry but I am the first femlae to join on both sides. So no pressure! (Kidding) My family is very proud no matter what I do in the military.

          Another thing I did for my mother is put up a picture of Goliath. My parents teach an early morning Sunday school class for the highschoolers in their ward. Their learning the old testiment and they’re learning about actually how large Goliath was. He was 9ft tall… Here’s the proof

 I’ll tell you this, it was a little scary putting him up. As you can see why…  My parents class loved it though so success!! I can say I will not be taking him down… My brother Joshua can take him down. It made my parents happy and that’s all I care about. I’m all about family.
  
          This all I have going on through my brain at the moment but that could change in a few hours…. Ya never know! Until next time.

Didn’t Go As Planned…

So this weekend did NOT go as planned… For some odd reason, I was still sick like horribly sick. Sinus infection with allergies is not a good combination. Along with extremely dry throat and headaches, oh yeah it was going to be a painful road back to healthy. Hawking loogies that could make your stomach churn from the color, being extremely tired, and feeling achy is not a fun time well spent. Unless y’all are into that kind of thing but I’m not so y’all can have fun with that.

          Another thing that didn’t go according to plan was getting to see someone I’ve grown close to these past few months and that didn’t happen because his unit f*#%ed up the paperwork for him to come back to the states as an escort. So he is currently waiting for another person to take over as an escort and for him to go back to his deployment… Needless to say I wasn’t happy and I know my other half was furious but joys of the military. Just a forewarning to those that have families and want to get into the military reguardless of what branch you enlist to, they will occassionaly screw you over… HARD! Joys of the government runned organization. It happens. Look forward to it because it will happen to you eventually. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the military because I grew up as an Air Force brat and I loved it because I learned about honor, discipline, loyalty, and a few other things but it’s also hard too. My dad had to move his family where the AF needed him and he was away from us long periods at a time so he did miss things but I’m so proud of what he did that I wouldn’t change anything for the world. SO! The moral of this rant is that not only the servicemen serve but so do their families. 

          I think the only thing that did go according to plan is I went to SMITE world championships. For those who aren’t into computer games, it is a game where you get to be gods of multiple mythologies throughout the ancient world. It’s actually pretty cool. You can pick different gods and even pick different outfits so lets pick Bastet. She could look like her Eyptian skin or you could make her look like cat burglar. Or lets pick Baucchus, the Roman god of wine. He could look like his Roman drunk self or you could put him in a Elivs costume from the seventies. (FYI it looks creepy as hell!) There are many other gods to pick from and skins you could choose from. There were teams from all over the world playing this game. Now I will say that they all look to be young teenagers that don’t have a life other than this game and it shows in how they can play and win money from tournaments. This world championship tournament, the winning team wins I believe a million dollars! Holy s#$%! That could pay off all my debt and enough to still play with. So you go nerds! Why was I there you ask. I was arm candy for a buddy of mine to help his image. I can occasionally make my guys look good and help them with their street credit to attract the other females. (I’m actually not kidding) Proof is in this picture below. Now please dont think this young man can’t get women because he’s socially incapable because this sweet guy has a good job, a house, and can take care of you.

 
While the tournament was going on they had this contest of best cosplay costumes and I didn’t get pictures of all the cool costumes, I got two from some damn AMAZING costumes. Check out below 

   
The winner would win $20,000 dollars! Holy s@#$% again! See what being a geek can rack in the dough? So for all you creative, geeky freaks out there that don’t think being a geek/nerd doesn’t pay off? Oh you are so wrong. See above for the proof or check out SMITE for tournaments and put together your own team. It is fun to play and watch.

          Now that I’ve done my advertising(wink, wink) I’ll just finish up with how sucky it is at the moment to be because I’m still sick and still looking for a day job… It’s oh so fun trying to look for something in your field. The good news is that I get to start school this Thursday so at least while I’m looking for a job that I can educate myself in a future hopeful job. I’m really excited to go back to school again. I actually like the medical field and they are alway in need of people and I’m planning to be one of those people! I just want to get out of debt and hopefully when I start a family that I can help save money and eventually become a stay at home mom so  I can raise the kids and my husband can be the guy who brings home the bacon. Old fashion I know but I  don’t care. I think we need to bring back some of the old fashion standards of society. Not the women can’t be out of the kitchen or that all ethinics aren’t equals but the family and courting standards or even how to be social standard. I think we’ve become a society where it’s okay to be a slob and not have to present ourselves to the best of our ablilities. When is it okay to be in public in our PJ’s or to go to a job interview drunk? If you think I’m kidding, I’m not and I’ve seen both on several occasions and people wonder why the United States gets ridicule…  Now that is a topic I could go on for days about but I won’t because I’m sure y’all would get annoyed and tell me to go f@#$ off. 

          Hopefully my next post will be telling y’all of my first night at class. Oh I forgot to tell you, my classes are at night which is one of the reasons why it’s so damn hard to find a job. Until next time for my mind to blow up with something that needs to be said.

Oh Fun

Nothing to really report other than I’ve been sick… It’s so much fun, I highly reccomend it. I hope y’all got that as my sarcasm because being sick sucks major ass! I’ve been sick since New Year’s Eve with at first started as a stomach bug, then turned into a head cold… The head cold was way worse because it took me longer to get better. I was getting better which I was getting excited because I want to start training again but then I watched an adorable little baby boy who is sick and he got me sick again with a sinus infection. Woke up this morning with a stuffy nose and and a little bit of a sore throat. Luckily enough I have some meds to hopefully will get me well by tomorrow.

          What I am hoping for this weekend is to visit a person I care about. He’s getting a chance to get back into the states for a few days for work. Since we haven’t seen each other in seven years… We’re pretty excited to see each other again. One of the things I adore about him is that since I’ve been sick, he’s been nothing but caring and wondering what he can do to help me get better even him being overseas. That’s all the internet gets to know about for the time being. Told you before that I wasn’t going to share extremely personal about myself and my life.

          A good note, I got to reconnect with an old friend. He’s become a firefighter and got married. He also have a goober of a dog. His life seems to be going really good and I’m happy for him. It’s been nice talking to him like the old days. Ladies, I’ve got to say he’s one of the good guys that still exist in the world and his wife is one lucky woman! I love him like a dear friend. He’s been there for me through some shit in my life. I hope I’ve been there for him but life happens and we lost contact with each other. It’s been nice. I’ve missed my friend.

          So… My week so far has been all over. Looking for a job is still on the plate and looking for a place to live so that the future will hold more opportunities and hopefully a dog. One thing I’ve been wanting for a few years is is a German Shephard. Fluffier the better and I want to have him trained as a badass guard dog. But I also want a ton of dogs, horses, cats, pretty much a small farm so when I get the money to get a house, it’s going to have a ton of land. 

     That’s all I have for the moment… Hope it wasn’t too dull but it’s something I had to write out. Stay healthy people and if you get sick, don’t go to the doctor because it’s your body’s way of saying “SLOW THE F*#$ DOWN” Until next time!

Welcome 2016

Hello 2016 and goodbye 2015! With all the bull shit that came about in 2015, I had a life changing event and I’m very grateful for it. I enlisted into the Georgia Army National Guard as a 31B which means a Military Police. I was going to spend 20 weeks learning on how to first be a soldier and then become an MP.

          Not going to lie but I did NOT want to be an MP. I had some experiences with them and they were not pleaseant. They’ve always had this holier than thou kind of complex and think that they can do anything and these MP’s are privates! Low man on the food chain so to speak in the ranking system. Drove me nuts and they were usually rude as hell! As a civilian, I know what I can and can’t do on post but sometimes we make honest mistakes and GOD forbid you do that around MP’s. So needless to say I wasn’t exactly pleased when MP was my best option for the NG. They pay off my school debt which I’m in much need at the moment. (LOL)

          Well needless to say time came for me to go to basic and AIT. I was nervous, I’ll be honest because I am going to be one of the older people in my company  and higher rank. I came into the military as a specialist which is an E-4.  I was also heading to Ft. Leonard Wood, MO… In the middle of summer!! That was a new branch of hell. Not only was I was going to a place that is extremely miserable place georgraphicly but weather was aweful as well. The humidity was extreme and so was the damn sun! Training felt like we were in the Middle East. Woke up in sweat, spent the entire day in sweat, and went to bed in sweat. Didn’t matter where, what, or why I was doing, I was in sweat. Of course what do we train in? ACU’s. You think I’m kidding, take a look at the picture below 

 (This is my platoon exchanging from red phase to white phase) Rough Riders!

That is the Drill Sergeants job to get us to throw up, at least with my platoon. If a minimun of four people didn’t throw up during a smoking session, we kept going until some people threw up. I never did even though I almost did but not from the smoking but from the other people throwing up. 

          It wasn’t all hell. I actually loved the training. We became family as battle buddies and learned how to become not only soldiers but also as military police. I’ll share more stories later about basic if I have a bored day 🙂 But this was my end result 

    
   
So that took up most of my year but while I was training I reconnected with someone I didn’t think we would. Turned out to be one of the best things in my life. During the last part of basic we were allowed to use our phones one day a week for a certain amount of time. So once a week we would Facebook message until my pass was up. Reason why we facebooked message is one I was in training and two he is currently deployed overseas. Six hour difference and he’s ahead of me. It started out as friendly small talk and it turned into my lifeline to get me through the upcoming week of training. It took time so don’t think this happened over night. He would tell me stories of when he went through some of his training and I would tell him what I was going through emotionally, mentally, or physically. One of the things he would always say to me is keep going and how proud he was of me. It would help me through the darkest parts of the last little bit of training. So by the time I finished training we became close.

          Now, this is hard for me but we’re still becoming closer each day which is amazing since he’s deployed and I’m here in the states and we have history. Lets just say we had a bumpy start to our friendship. (It happens) We are taking our time and really getting to know each other and learning about each other’s personalities. Now this blog isn’t meant to be all happy and sweets but to share a little bit about myself. I’ve been told that I wear my emotions on my sleeves and that is how I’m going to treat this blog. I’m not here to make people happy but I’m also not here to make them sad. I want people to know my views even if they aren’t the most popular. Not here to be popular but to speak my mind. I won’t be sharing things that are extremely personally but I will be sharing my ups and downs. Including of possiblities of the future…  

          The goal for this blog is to share whats going this year. With me and what’s going on in the world through my eyes. I’m starting back to school to hopefully finish my medcial assisting certificate, getting more in shape better than I was at basic, hopefully get a deployement, get a really good job that will allow me to pay off bills and save money, and maybe get a relationship! (doubtful) Hope y’all enjoy whats going on through this crazy mind of mine and I do apologize now for any rants that will probably happen because I’ve got a hot temper and a loud mouth.
