Point Me That Way

I’ve always dreamed of going back to Korea. Last time I was there (years and years ago) I was with a good friend of mine. My buddy is Korean and was adopted by a Russian family (so cool!) and always wanted to go to his birth place. So he and I talked to my mom in taking us to Korea for our senior trip when we were in high school. When we both found out we were going we were really excited. The last time I went to Korea prior to that senior trip was probably when I was in elementary school. So it’s been a while since I last went. Our plane landed at the international airport in Incheon, Korea. Reality hit of how much of war still exists in a very well-developed country. We walked around the airport for a bit while waiting for our ride to our destination. Despite the beautiful architecture there were still heavily armed guards walking around. they had automatic weapons slung on their backs with lots and lots …

Maybe A Fresh Start

The past couple of weeks haven’t been so good. I’m not going to lie, relationship wise could be a lot better. That being said a lot of good has happened since focusing on other parts of my life. Not to repeat a lot of what I said, but the biggest part is that I passed my exams for the potential new job opportunity. A lot of things have been falling apart. Most of it I wish it never did. I guess all I can do now is hope that for everything that has ended something new and better can start in its place. Over the course of the weekend my mind has literally become a blank slate so… sorry folks! Even though a lot has happened it’s just been a lot to process and figure it all out. Sometimes big life changing events blow you away… Not much else for me to say at the moment.

Wonderful Night

Last night was one of the best nights I’ve had in a very long time. Of course it was spent with my sweetheart. She came over around 7 PM. I made her dinner, just a simple dish nothing too complicated. I’m making a promise to her that once a week I make her dinner to improve my cooking skills. If we are going to live together I want to be able to make her something nice as much as I can. As I was cooking in the kitchen I heard her come in the back door. My dog greeted her like she hasn’t seen her in forever. I don’t even remember if I said hello before I kissed her. God it felt like forever ago I got a kiss from her. As soon as I got done making dinner I set up the table for us to eat. It had been almost exactly a week since we last saw each other. She mentioned that it felt like an eternity not seeing me for that long. …

Say Hello to Goodbye

Today I woke up a bit late. I didn’t feel like driving to the coffee shop this morning so I didn’t work on my book this morning (oh well). But today I got some sort of good news. For many of you that don’t know, I am in the United States Marine Corps and have served almost four years honorably. A few months ago I requested a inner service transfer to the United States Air Force for the job of Fire Protection (Fire Fighter) for the National Guard unit near my city. I just got word today that my transfer paper work has been completed and making its way back to be signed off by my Commanding Officer. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the Marine Corps. I love being a Marine. I’m sure my sweetheart loves bragging that she is dating a Marine who is in the infantry (even though I don’t look, act, or talk like it). But sadly it is time to move on with my life. The infantry has taken …
