Early mornings by myself aren't as good as early mornings waking up to a smiling face
It’s true ya know.
It’s a school night though. Which I such a kid term, but it’s okay, I’m still going to use it. The weekend though, it’s fast approaching, and my anticipation, and not for any plans that have been made, but just because spending time with her makes my day.
And now tumblr is brig weird so I can’t see what I’m writing, so forgive tr misspellings folks.
That edit button is a godsend you know. Also, last night, my brain/heart may have gotten ahead my fingers while texting. That’s what happens when your tired, which I wasn’t till about that point just to clarify. Off to wok folks.
Days like today are enough to convince anyone that of there is a hell, it's a waiting room.
The army is famous for hurry up and wait.
And we all hate it.
So it should really just go. Honestly, when I could be profiting by my time; sitting and staring at a wall, or a computer or another wall is not a good way to spend it. Especially when you are told that if you leave the area you will just be called back so you might as well stay.
Besides that, people watching should prove to be fun. I may not be nearly as observant as Sherlock Holmes, or as observant as a certain dear lady, but I try!
So awesome. Not only because of who I went with (but that doesn’t hurt)
Its such an old place and it was super fun to go see it. We saw the Castilio San Marcos, a boarding house museum, we walked down several really cool streets, stuck our head in the cathedral and then checked out the Ripleys Believe it or Not museum.
We capped the day with a visit to the fountain of youth archeological site which was cool. The guy firing the cannon was the highlight there for sure.
That’s right folks, this weekend, besides a small portion yesterday has been an unmitigated disaster. CQ on Friday, and then staff duty today. Two twenty four duties in one weekend, and me not even deployed.
I’m not so much complaining as simply pointing out that this stinks.
The high point of the weekend that I mentioned involves my lovely girlfriend :) and the savannah historical society. We went there saturday morning and researched a little bit on our houses. It was quite a good time.
The last few months have been a lot of good times. I got to see my daughters for Christmas. I’ve spent a lot of quality time with Shawna and its just been spectacular.
Things are pretty good in spite of minor inconveniences. All in all, this is one happy guy.
I am stuck to a futon, and cannot get free, I'm not sure if I could escape....
I’m currently watching the second season of the American version of the office and kicking myself for not having watched this before. I’ve seen the British version and I love it. So it was crazy that I hadn’t watched the American one.
It’s pretty awesome.
I need to run, but I also need for my legs to begin functioning normally. The PT for the last few weeks has been kind of brutal. It’s not so bad, except when I walk down stairs.
I’ve been reading a lot lately. Read some Thomas Hardy, now reading “Jane Eyre”
One of the things I love about the office is that it’s terribly cringe inducing. I think that’s why it’s so good.
I am relentless, I am always there, now and forever.
"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you’re not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you’re the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no’s become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES." - Nike
So ends another short week as the holidays find all of us hungry and tired and happy despite it all
I’m happy anyway. Super happy. Let’s be honest, it’s because of one person.
Regardless though, it’s been good. Gotten plenty of roadwork done the last few days. Breaking the new shoes in rather well.
My only complaint is this horrendous weather. Some I know will say “your a madman! Why would you dislike this weather” I say, because it’s November and I was fucking sweating just sitting outside today. It’s fucking hot. Like summer. And it’s so not summer.
There are moments in your life that stop. When the world stands still. They can catch you anywhere. They can catch you anytime.
And when they do, these frames out of motion there is always music. Sometimes that’s all there is. Other times it may be a spoken word or an embrace or a line in a story. They pull you in before you can even react.
And today as I reached forward to open a door, the sound of a guitar caught me mid movement. And I stood still. Not even by choice. I did not want to break the spell. I couldn’t.
The song rolled on past me, I could almost feel my feet carrying me along a trail leading up into the mountains. I could feel a cool morning mist building around me as I stepped carefully around the stones that had fallen in the path. I could see and feel all of this as I stood transfixed by the notes of a single guitar.
Times like these pull a person out of their routine and remind them what is good in their lives. For all of those times, and those who have brought them to me, I say thank you.
It’s only 8 here in Savannah and the sun has been down for almost two hours. It’s a crazy time of year that doesn’t feel like a crazy time of year.
I’m especially good at doing…..
Well see, that’s the thing, I know I’m good at things, but ask me to name them and they float off. I’ve done things in my life to be proud of, I know wonderful people, some who tolerate me even though at the best of times I’m lost.
And at the worst of times I might as well be drooling on myself.
I recently rediscovered Project Gutenberg. I remember a long long time ago when I first found it. I was a much young man and hadn’t really thought about an electronic reader then.
May have attacked you over the idea. I’m a book person, but the there is no denying the convenience. And there is no denying that the environmental impact is far far less.
But nothing beats a book in your lap when you pass out in you chair.
It's Sunday and I just finished running and I have to go back to work on Monday so to celebrate I am having a drink or 12
Not the best way to do things I know.
It’s also hard as fuck to type when the alcohol is already kicking you square in your ass. Thats what I get for being a lightweight.
I am going to do about two things on payday, okay maybe three. Buy a lottery ticket. Get a cat. Buy a bottle of American Honey or Sailor Jerry. I am also going to get re-started with school. I’m gonna teach kids to be awesome.
With that being said, stay frosty, and get out in the beautiful world!!!!
