Like it never happened

Have you ever fallen asleep on the couch, one lazy Sunday morning, to wake up when it’s dark? You had plans for the day, but now things were closed and the specter of wage-earning activities loomed overhead.

That’s sort of what happened to February. There weren’t any exciting dreams during the “nap.” There weren’t any jarring noises that eventually woke me up. It was just there–March…into the second week, like it was hours ago.

I did have small urges to write about the past little bit, like those shallow slumber periods where you remember opening your eyes; but my numbed mind decided to drift again and the calendar turned.

I finished the first phase of my staff sergeant school, termed BNCOC for the initiated (Basic Non-Commissioned Officer Course for those not). You know? I’m not going to talk about it. I will say that I really was sleeping through life on many levels in the time I’ve been away.

Phase two begins at the end of this month. That should promise to be much more interesting, as we are to learn more about our militant journalistic enterprise rather than basic military knowledge. I’ll be attending said course with none other than uber peep Finch, featured at right.

So now that I’ve stretched and yawned a few times, how are things? Did the guests all go home?

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.

    I agree with napping through February. Since it’s the shortest month, I knew it would go by fast, but it was more like a blur to me.

    Yeah I know. It’s very easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-days and not realize a sizable portion of your life just passed by πŸ˜‰

    Go home? Hell no! Tonight I said to myself, I said “Felyne, if that Josh Salmons hasn’t blogged, you’re going to post a comment like ‘well I’ll just wait here then'”.

    I’ve been waiting and checking (admittedly things have been a little chaotic here recently to check every single day like normal). Good to see you’re back on board – and promise me, just blog about the coffee, and how bad or good that is, even if its the only thing that keeps you alive… I’m waiting to hear what you have to say!! (seriously, I am!)

    BTW, I am now completely relocated to San Diego — guess I beat you to Iraq, huh. Nah Nah.

    PS – And oh! Tell Finch the updating of his blog is brain-numbingly slow! I mean HELLO! September06? That’s like, when I was a child or something! I can’t even remember yesterday, let alone when 2006 was! πŸ™‚

    PPS – Much Love to both you and the Finchster!

    How’s San Diego? That’s my hometown, by the way. Not that I remember much about it, we moved on when I was still a wee babe. Still, technically and all…that’s where this cat began.

  7. Felyne says :

    Heheh well a big hello from your hometown then! Yay for San Diego! πŸ™‚ I’m in La Jolla, and it’s rained once in the two weeks I’ve been here.

    You’re hometown rocks, babe! Oh, and everyone ‘just loves’ my accent… when they can understand it. Hahahah. πŸ™‚ It’s a bit of a culture shock, but I’m settling in just fine. Thanks for having me here!
