I received a letter from Ed last night. Wrote back immediately. Some might say I was lonely.. and they would be correct. =/ It’s nice to hear from her and about the guild. I wish I could be more active in it. I feel guilty, being an absentee officer. =/

Anyway, I also received some books yesterday. I’m already reading “Swan Song“. It’s good, but depressing so far. I mean, how light-hearted can a book about the aftermath of nuclear war be? It’s to be expected.

I was also sent a new journal. It’s physically larger and very nice. :) It’s unlined, which causes me some concern, but I’ll live with it. The secret is to not make lots of journal entries to finish up this one, so I can start on the new one. I can see myself doing that. =/

I had a medical call-out this morning. I thought/hoped it would be w/ Dr. Mayo, so I brought my medical records. Of course, it was just a blood draw. Silly me, for a minute there I actually was deluded into thinking Dr. Mayo gave a shit. Speaking of which, it’s been over a month since I provided my “sample”, and still no word on what the results were, if any.

Anyway, more later… Must fill up this journal. ;)



Slept wonderfully last night! Room was dark, with low light from hallway. We have two little frogs that like to hand out on our window @ night. So cute!

Room also quiet @ night. V. cool. Swamp does smoke a couple puffs from time to time I learned. Disappointing. But, at least he doesn’t do it in his room, so that’s a positive.

Wrote 4 page letter to Auntie Ed tonight. Will mail it tomorrow. Wondering if I’m writing her too much and she will read something into that. Not quite sure if there isn’t any truth to it. Or, perhaps, just latching on to any female friendship I can find. =/

Thought about asking Ed if she thinks inviting Holly (Saigan) into my little coffee clutch/pen pal would be a good idea. Perhaps on my next letter. =/

Anyway, gonna lay down and wait for master roster.

Love this frickin’ dorm!!!



Not a bad day today either. :) I received a couple colored pencil stubs today. Feel good to be able to mark my scriptures again.

Also hired what’s his face to make “B” an “I love you & Thinking of you” card. That should come as a surprise to her. :) Also loaned some guy a “soup”.

Received a letter from Ed today. Made my night. I can hear her FTHR voice in my head as I read her words.

Also received the Sept. Ensign. Read that almost cover to cover.

It seems to be a day for “also’s”. :)

Money came through today. Amazing how fast $50 can be spent at the canteen. =/ But I feel well set for the time being.

Part of what I bought was generic Q-tips. When I used them I could definately tell it’s been 3 months since I’ve been able to properly clean my ears. Ewwwwwww.

Anyway, quota fulfilled. Scriptures read. Lights will be going out in a couple mins.


P.S. – Must remember to order Bible & BoM for M.


This is a game changer!

Needless to say, I preordered it. At $69.99 MSRP, who wouldn’t!?



See? Not every post on here will be doom and gloom. ;)


So Ashley and I have broken up. I guess I can’t really say I’m surprised. What attracted me to her was that she seemed mature for her age, a requirement considering the rather sizable gap in out ages.

Things have been strained for the past week. I honestly think she was just looking for an excuse to break up with me.

I had her toiletries in my trunk for the past day or so.. I didn’t wanna give them to her, because I figured that it would put the final nail in the coffin.

But I discovered that on Tuesday night she kissed a coworker of mine. He came to me about it, so I can’t REALLY fault him… but I’m totally pissed at her. I don’t care how strained we were, we were still together at the time. So she cheated on me. Lovely.

So, yup. It’s over. I gave her her shit and told her “I hope you find what you are looking for, I’m sorry it wasn’t me”. I could have cussed her out, or said words to hurt her.. but that wouldn’t help the situation. I decided to be the grown up, since she wouldn’t be.

I think what bugs me the most is that she also removed me from her friends list in World of Warcraft. How silly is that? I can understand if she doesn’t want to see me romantically, but I didn’t fuck up her. There is no reason for her to drop me like this. =/

More later.. I really don’t feel like rehashing the entire thing right now. It’s giving me a headache.


Damn! It looks like the ink bleeds through to the next page. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to alternate pages until I figure out a solution.

Spent most of the day playing Aion. It’s a nice departure from World of Warcraft. The world seems more vibrant & larger. I don’t know.. WoW just seems kinda worn out after all these years. Ken was right, there really is nothing different about it anymore. One quest is like all the others.

Ashley and I haven’t been spending a whole lot of time together. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. She’s a wonderful girl, but I don’t think she’s “the one”. Honestly, I’m not even sure if I want to settle down again.

Not that I’m whoring it up.. I just don’t feel the need to pair off with anyone. =/

Anyway, I have to get up for work in 5 hours. I should probably get some rest. More later.
