It’s been over a month since I graduated from basic. I have and haven’t had time to make this post. Mostly it’s been pure laziness. I’m in tech school currently, for the next several months. As you may all remember, … Continue reading →

August 1st. Only a short while longer until I am on my way to Air Force basic military training. Since my last post I have been visiting with friends and family that I hadn’t seen since last December. I’ve also … Continue reading →
As of today, I officially have 30 days left before going to BMT. Monday the 14th I met with my recruiter one last time for my 30 day brief before starting the drive on Tuesday from Arizona to Indiana. I’m … Continue reading →
After a long ordeal of waiting and being lied to, I have finally received the form I needed to change my name back to my maiden name (on Saturday) and went to the social security office this morning to officially and legally change it. Exactly a month after the divorce was finalized. Somehow fitting, though I was very impatient in getting the form.

Congratulations, Airman S!
On Saturday April 12, I swore in (again) to the United States Air Force. The ceremony occurred right before the Thunderbirds were to fly. It was a pretty cool experience and thankfully I had a friend there to take pictures. … Continue reading →
