Wow... JP read this ENTIRE thing... You must've been bored out of your mind, buddy. *scrolls down* Wow, that took ME awhile to find. July 19th, you know JP? I don't kow WHAT I was thinking when I wrote that. I don't want kids... Not right now, anyway. Must've been high that day. *shrugs*

Well Scott backed out on me. I was figureing he would, actually. I'm not really that mad at him either. I was really looking forward to having an apartment though, but I still have options. I can either find another roomate (which probably won't happen) or I can take my 5th wheel up there like I was planning to do in the first place. There's always another way to go. ^_^ It's great to be an optimist.

Drill weekend went pretty well for the most part. True, 3rd looked like complete morons, and it rained and the mud was knee deep (for us short people, anyway), but overall I had a good weekend. I got a lot off my chest that I needed to. I think SGT Payne was a little shocked when I started going off about everything that was going on in our platoon that I didn't agree with - I've never really done that before. Usually I just keep my mouth shut. I'm not really one for saying things I know are going to piss people off, but this weekend I was beyond the point of caring. I told him everything about the general attitude in third (oh, we screwed up, oh well - maybe next time) and how it REALLY needs to change. Especially if we get deployed - there might not BE a next time. I also went off on NCO's unprofessional behavior and how they badmouth other NCO's and other platoons in front of everyone. It's disrespectful and innapropriate and I'm sick of it. I don't want to have to listen to it anymore, I don't think anyone should, and I let my squad leader know that. So we'll see what happens. I really hope things start looking up, because if nothing happens I'm just going to keep taking it to the next highest person until it does. And Micky is trying to get me into second... ha ha, good luck, I don't see that happening.

SMILE! Damn, the world can't be that bad!
