Another break

Sadly, I’m easing back on the blog again. There’s just not much going on apart from the mind-numbing events of staff work. You all don’t really want to hear about the finer points of meeting scheduling, do you?

I do miss the outlet of writing, so I’ll stick around on this entry for a few minutes.

The time is coming for me to reevaluate life again. Some events are taking place overseas that might quicken our return to the fun place. As a response, I’m weighing my options and exploring, once again, the possibility of seeking a commission.

It’s not that getting out is my first choice, and a commission is the backup plan and it’s not vice versa; I’m just in one of those places where a major life-course change is in the works and I need to work through that.

What I do know is I’m a little worn out from the Army. God bless it, I’ve just not had a good run. Maybe its me and the attitude, which I’m taking an honest look at also; but point of fact, I’m deeply underwhelmed and burnt out. So staying the course isn’t in my set of options. What’s next is picking the next road.

Which leaves you and I apart for a bit while my brain tries to churn through possibilities and options spanning three potential lifetimes. I’ll be around, though. Laters.

Born in San Diego, Calif. Raised as a Navy Brat, I jumped ship and crossed over to the Army. Served as an enlisted journalist for a bunch of years, then helped the DoD figure out what the hell to do with social media. After the Army, now I drift down the river of life, trying not to be a jerk.

    Sweet, thanks Felyne 😉 How’s the camera working out?

    Hahaha the cameras great, it’s my photography skills that are the problem!

    Truth be told I’m feeling excessively discouraged with it at the moment and wonder why I even bother trying… somehow I think you know what that feels like.

    Oh, visa interview on Wednesday, so all things going well I’ll be in San Diego by 5 Feb… but of course that’s still totally unconfirmed… somehow I think you know what that feels like too…
