Apparently the Few and The Proud are over-staffed..


So I had a date with Allen again last night. I drove there straight after work and we were both kind of burnt out when I finally go there… We had planned on dinner and a movie… but by the time we finished dinner (yummy Thai food!) We decided to just get some frozen yogurt and go back to his place to watch DVDs and hit the rack… So we did just that. I ordered too much frozen yogurt… I was hoping it would taste as strong and tart as Pinkberry or Yogurtland; but Alas TCBY has yet to figure that one out…

We went back home and tried to watch young Frankenstein (possibly my favorite movie…) Allen hasn’t seen it… I was dumbstruck! So we tried to watch it but he fell asleep about halfway through and I wasn’t far behind… I love snuggling with him at night… the only thing better is when I got Moses there also… (He wakes me up from my nightmares)

So we had to wake up early as Allen was road-tripping with his roommate back to Spokane to visit the family and such… so I hit the road back for home… I decided to stop into the Marine Corps Recruiters and asked them about my reenlistment eligibility… I am seriously considering DEP-ing in again… they told me that they are having trouble with even getting single waivers through let alone someone like me who is going to require a good number of waivers… I want my Eagle, Globe and Anchor… I need it. My life keeps fizzling out down here and I need to do something about it…

So they said that the Marine corps is essentially over-staffed… which is BULLSHIT!!! I am so ticked off right now I can hardly contain myself… I want to have a good life and while I know school is the right thing for me I also know that I could be very well served by the Corps… they did tell me to check in in Oct, as it is a new fiscal year… so I will have to do that… Hopefully I will be able to get DEP-ed in… either way I think I will start training for it… You know? I need to start working out more anyways…

So I found my little training book for prepping for Boot camp.. I think I will use it… It’s a really good system and helps cover a lot of good stuff… which reminds me I also need to sign up for the Gym at my school… and I also need to check on my Financial Aid… it’s now a month late… This is out of hand… I am really getting tired of worrying about money.

Well, talk at y’all later!

  1. A month late? Not good – definitely check on that, Babe — funds are important for all those "frivolous" things like food & a roof, etc… Don't get your knickers too knotted at the Corps, Young One — they've had personnel cuts & have had a "slow your recruitment" order passed down the pike. All of the Armed Forces have. My youngest wants back in the military — they told him he has to have a certain amount of college under his belt, and then they'll take him back. You're on the right path, but think about adding some military sciences to your studies… If you're serious about going back — that's the best way to get there. PROVE you know your stuff & are a valuable asset to the Corps/Armed Forces and do it now. Enjoy your new Friend! You know I wish you every happiness, don't you? 'Cause I do, Sweets! *kisses*

  2. My "new friend" is good folks… He got stuck at the house earlier than I would have liked… and I think that overwhelmed him… but he stood up surprisingly well to Sven's yapping so that definitely earned him cookie points…I am not going to be jumping into anything too serious too quickly… and he's really good for holding me back about such things… so yeah…As for the Marines They told me that I should come back at the start of the fiscal year in October… that they might be able to pull something off then.. so I may very well do that… I just wish my old recruiter was still there because they would have pulled some definite strings for me… They even told me so… that I just had to heal — but I didn't heal fast enough.
