I understand that I'm a bit of an unknown entity in this forum. I haven't consistently posted in quite a while. I keep telling myself I'll keep at it and stay up with it but I never seem to remember. I honestly annoys me that I can never seem to stay on top of it. In other more depressin...

About two months ago I took a small vacation to Hiroshima. It was only a few days but was some of the most fun I've had while in Japan. Here are some pictures we took. Note: Sarah took better ones then me but it's still on here camera in Zama. The deer at Miyajima. I like to compare them to ...

Gangsta http://i.imgur.com/4Anr4Ov.jpg I honestly didn't know what to expect with this one. I mean I figured the title was pretty self explanatory. If they keep this energy up then I'm in for one wild ride of ridiculousness ... In a good way. GATE Ep 2 Finally, NIPPON STRONK ! http://i.imgu...

So there's currently a typhoon in passing over in Okinawa. It's not so bad, nothing different that I haven't already been though. BUT! My window doesn't create a seal so water gets in through the crack. Then the wind pushes this water onto the floor. The only good thing about this si...

Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri Its only the first episodes so it's hard to say where or how it will go. I can say however, I think it has promise. It's a pretty good concept that has been done before (See Rome Sweet Rome ) Lets just hope they don't mess it up. If the...

December is always a hard time for me. In fact winter in general hasn't been too kind to me over the past few years. I've been trying to stay busy to keep my mind from wondering which has been working for the most part. But there are times when that doesn't even work. Five years ago yest...

The only thing the Marine Corps got right in my opinion. On any legal/admin form in the Corps it has to be written YYYYMMDD. So much easier to understand.

I've started to read some John Steinbeck. Both Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden. Loving both however I'm finding it hard to actually find time to read them. I'm also trying to squeeze in Terry Pratchet and A Game of Thrones. I've seen the first season so it's all pretty much spoi...

Roommate got deployed to the Philippines for humanitarian relief/Satcom stuff. I get the room to myself. I get to watch whatever movie I want, turn up my alarms as loud as I want and put my music on blast. Oh that and pants are now entirely optional. I watched Eva 3.33 on his 44" screen just be...

In light of recent events there is a chance I could get deployed to the Philippines on humanitarian aid. I got the word the other night, half plastered, that we where to stop consuming alcohol and get our flaks ready. Honestly I don't know if I even have a chance to go seeing as I'm set to g...

I'm guessing talking to the chaplain didn't help much? As for you friends situation, I think some friends are better then no friends at all. Find the few you feel most comfortable with and try getting to know them better. Once you're closer to them you may find it's possible to talk...

Things are getting shitty and I don't feel like anyone is actually listening to what I have to say.

I'm starting to take a step back and reevaluate who are my "friends." I'm finding I don't have all that many. It's starting to scare me/piss me off.

Earlier in the week I talked to the Chaplin. It felt weird, letting my guard down. I'm always on edge. I just expect everyone to screw me over. Back in the States I couldn't sit in any public place without putting my back to a wall and seeing all the entrances. I'm just to damned guarded...

I've been feeling like shit recently
Thinking about my past mistakes, things I regretted doing, and things I didn't do. The October November December months are pretty much the worse for me.

I'm going to go talk to the Chaplin on Monday.

I had a really long work day yesterday, like really long. Started at 4:45 in the morning and didn't end until 7:30 ish at night. We started off having to do a hike in the morning which isn't a bad thing. It's a battalion hike so there where so many people that they couldn't keep the ...

Ok, So I've finally hit my new unit. Well I actually did about two months ago but I haven't been around too much. I've been busy with one thing or another since I got here. So anyways, on to what's going on here. I'm in Okinawa. It's a very different place then I expected but...

It's good you were finally able to let it out, Spud. And I don't think you should be so hard on yourself for what you did in the past. You really couldn't have been expected to know how to react to situations like that. I have another friend I talked about it here at the detachment. Thi...

It's been about nine months since my grandmother passed away and I haven't felt much of anything since then about it. I just pushed it away and tried my hardest, subconsciously or otherwise, to not think about it. I know it's not the healthiest thing to do but had things I had to do but ...

I finally worked it up to tell her. So far it's all going like I expected, she hates me, and I've already gotten an angry text from a friend. I really hate everything about this Also my glasses got stepped on (accident) and the douche across the hall won't stop coming in our room...
