I’m trying real hard not to be a disagreeable person, but having to explain to people why I don’t want a going away is really getting old.
After four years of being here, I truly wish one of my wishes could be respected. I am a private person. I do my job, and I go home and do my own thing. Yes, I understand the Air Force is a 24/7 job, but just once, one freaking time, I wish I could be granted what I truly want. I want to leave and say goodbye. I don’t need food or a big group of people who don’t really know me and who in the past four years haven’t even taken the time to get to know me to wish me good luck. I just want to get in my car and go up the road and move forward.
It’s like my own thoughts don’t count even though this going away has to completely do with me. In my mind, I would stand up there at this forced event and say, “Well, I didn’t want this, so goodbye” and then just walk out.

Ruby ALWAYS cheers me up. I have seriously thought of taking that whole Ruby spam and making it my screensaver (don’t think me weird). She is the most precious looking dog in the world of dogs.
I try not to be too negative on here, but yes, you guessed it as being one of my bad days.

I think if I am the one who is leaving my job for another job it should be my decision as to whether or not I want a going away party. Not anyone else’s. And by the way, I don’t want one.
Also, if you are walking down the hallway and looking repeatedly down at your cellphone and reading it and I bump into you and you give me an appauling look, I should have the right to slap you. I really should. You really should know better. What you are doing is moronic.

I learned about paint curing today; for the life of me I thought I was painting the wrong color on my walls. What’s weird is before I knew of this mystical paint curing phenomena, I still continued to paint.

I am all for helping the victims of Boston. But guess what? There are people out there who will take advantage of this tragedy. Before you give any dollars, please please make sure it is a legitimate organization. There are shady, heartless people out there.

What did you spend your week of leave doing? Oh, I am so glad you asked. First I cleaned the bathroom and all the baseboards and washed the curtains and cleaned the entire apartment. Did I mention I am following all that up with spackling, priming, and painting my apartment? All of this to be ahead of the game. Move out day is May 24th.
Yes, I am a classic Type A. But having this accomplished means a little less I’ll have to do next month.

Having a job in Emergency Management the only reason I can find for a thing like this to happen is to instill fear in other people. An event like this makes you want to shut yourself in and not live your life. The person or people who did this are terrorists to this country. Yes, they have made us sad and fearful; they have reached their goal. We must become angry enough to do something. We must not cower away and hide in our homes or not participate in these amazing, worthwhile events. We will not be overcome by fear. We won’t.

I’m starting to take pictures off the walls and pack a little, though the movers won’t be here until May 24th. They pack up all my stuff, but I am packing now what I don’t want them to touch. I know it’s a little early, but time will get away from me with outprocessing and such, so having a week off to get things started is a good plan for me. What’s weird is I am only moving 3 hours up the road.
