from spit-n-lie :
Ok, well, it may not be worth much, and may not be the same, but if you ever need to talk I'm still just a note/text/email/call away.
from spit-n-lie :
Hey I'm going to lock up. I'll use the same info you did but about you. Let me know if you can get in
from spit-n-lie :
It's me. Read.
from movingsands :
Not that I don't appreciate how important this is for you. And how you have been looking forward to it. So no, congratulations! Truly :)
from movingsands :
Hmm. Congratulations. I think. I'll be honest. Not really jumping up in excitement and happiness for you. Not the kind of thing to say, I guess... sorry.
from movingsands :
Ha! ok. Peach it is
from movingsands :
oh and have a good day
from movingsands :
Hunger: the great motivator. Yeah, take it with a smile. I didn't mean to imply anything other than you sound content. Like you are enjoying yourself. I just saw a contrast to the frustration from the base. You know, you might have gone in with a specific plan, for the opportunities it presents, but I think being a Marine suits you more than you realize. Suits your nature.
from movingsands :
Hiding that you care, missed, and was as glad to see them as they were? you're sweet! Good to hear the change has left you feeling...balanced and satisfied.
from movingsands :
That woman sounds terribly wonderful ;) Really.
from movingsands :
Oh no wonder you were on alert for the snowstorms. Do you like NC? I've only driven through it a few of times, during road trips to D.C. I got the impression of trees and more trees, but didn't stop so that's about it. All ready to go then? I wish you a good trip. Safe one as well. And of course, have fun.
from movingsands :
I am assuming PT is physical training? Google says it is. You know, it seems like you have collected(really tired right now so can't think of a better word) a group of colleagues that look up to you, and truly trust you, regardless of your rank. Says a lot-- all good things, of course. And I get SV's point, why stand on ceremony for every little thing when there is true respect. Am I getting this correct, you are not at an all-Marine base? Are there different branches? Little confused on that. On another note, I'm glad you'll have the time to write. I love to read about this life you are leading, very different from anything I've known. (And it sounds like alcohol just puts you to sleep lol)
from movingsands :
Oh wow! That was longer than I thought
from movingsands :
It's a fine line to walk- between friendship and leadership. You can make this your place to vent. Wish you didn't feel so alone though. So has your CPL made peace then? Maybe things will be better by the time you get back. Even if you are unable to post, still write somewhere. It's healthy and all that. I'll miss the posts though :) It's was so easy to get used to you again. So the champagne was cheap, maybe doesn't really qualify as champagne. I had some blood orange sorbet, so I got a scoop of that, then poured the champagne on it. It was.... too sweet. Maybe extra dry champagne would have been better. And then my sister came home and she had strawberries. So I made it again, with strawberry slices but less ice-cream. That one was better. But it was awkward, didn't know if to eat it or drink it. Went to my head a little though lol and I'm a happy drunk so.... lots of laughing. I once had strawberry jalapeņo gelato. It was surprisingly good. And I once had lavender ice cream. That was very subtle. Matcha ice-cream would be good too. But I guess it depends on the other courses? Anyway, now I'm just rambling. Have a good day!
from movingsands :
But of course you can have the best of everything! Blankets are the best. And, anyway, who needs a warm body when you have a perfect steak and a bottle of wine. Indefinitely better than my strange, but satisfying, champagne concoction...
from movingsands :
Haha! Well that just piques my curiosity. Who are you spending it with? Or maybe it's just all that chocolate... yum. Happy Valentine's. Hope it was a good one.
from movingsands :
Alright, got in, thanks! Keep it locked. Get some rest-- your days sound so hectic! Day was a bit stressful for me, but nothing like yours. I'll write about it later so I won't bore you here (and Doctor Who reference for the win lol)
from movingsands :
Seriously, though. It's ok if you'd prefer I didn't.
from movingsands :
So, no? I'm not allowed to read? :(
from movingsands :
:) hope you are having a good trip (right? that was today?). Be safe.
from movingsands :
Yeah I suppose you should be careful. mundilfari.thegiant@hotmail.com. those deployment benefits do sound nice. School loans are a pain. They almost drowned me after I graduated. Still... dangerous. So hunting, huh? And Michigan? For training?
from movingsands :
to hold and work with that kind of history must be something. The dread of the intelligent: lack of stimulation. Fill whatever little time you have with learning a new skill or honing an old one. And not really, I'm not impressive, just a bit of a mess. But what's new? :)
from movingsands :
Strange that it is precisely your maturity that triggers their immaturity. But I guess what it all comes down to is insecurity in their own work and abilities. So in that sense, it's not really about you. Hang in there. You are impressive, Nick. Is it the training with bigger and better weapons you mentioned before? The one you are so looking forward to?
from movingsands :
Alright then, comment I will. Is it really that much of an age difference? That much of a problem? It seems like your maturity should be more of an asset than an impediment. But yeah, vent it out, it should focus you
from movingsands :
Ah Mr. Cumberbatch, your voice your voice. I'm just going to keep commenting you know. Like I want to comment on this girl you took to the PX (learned something new, thanks) because do you see what I mean? guardianship, you are good at it
from movingsands :
whoa, congratulations! sounds like you have a talent for it. Will you be participating in the Chef of the Year? Does the Culinary Institute seriously interests you? And yes, when you put it that way, I understand the running towards the fire.
from movingsands :
Well... it does sound crazy. And counterintuitive. How do you train the flight instinct out of you? (And of course I'm a bit jealous of the mad baking skills)
from movingsands :
No rest and being pulled from all directions maybe. But I hear enjoyment. Did it turn out to be what you imagined it would be?
from movingsands :
And I hope you are resting at this point...
from movingsands :
Because what you experienced in training was what the field would be like... and out of the field, it has the atmosphere of a career... maybe? Just thinking out loud. But you are good at that. Guardianship. You always were.
from movingsands :
Wow. A Marine. You found your place. You found a family...
from movingsands :
Gas?! I hope that was a sarcastic "best part". You are saying so much, but skipping much more... get it out. You need to
from movingsands :
It's admirable, I'll say that. And a little insane. In a good way... I think. Or maybe just insane.
from movingsands :
Military?! Just.. take care of yourself. And thank you for your service.
