So my Gunney pulls us aside today to talk to us. He asked which one of us wanted to go to Iraq. I was first to raise my hand. Looks like I'm going to go in January/February time. As always, theres a catch.. this one is for 12 months. How the hell do I tell my family? they're gonna kill me, but its what I want. Its a really bit opportunity, I stand to make a lot of money with this, and go somewhere not many people get to go in their lives, to do something not everyone gets to do. If I ever have children, they'll be able to say that their daddy was a Marine, and he faught for his country. That may sound cheesy to you, but it means a lot to me.

It was time for a change, I haven't updated in a while not just because I haven't had much access to a comp, but because I don't like some of the audience I had with my other journal. That was a different time, in a different life, and it needed to be put to rest. A new age has risen, so to speak, and why not? Things are going good here, I don't have access to the internet all that often, but I at least have the option now, lol. All checked in here in my new duty station. I foulnd out that I deploy next September(as in a year from now), and quite excited about my first shot at heading over there. From what I understand, we're going out on ship for a west pack. As in, we're proly gonna hit like six or seven countries in the seven months that we're out. I think we're due to stop in various places such as Australia(fuck yeah!), Hawaii, Thailand, Singapore, and Afganistan(sp?). I'm going to be traveling a lot over the next four years, I got put into the MEU, which isn't what I was expecting a thousand times better then what I had been. Everyone in my shop is pretty cool so far, only fucking with the new guy minimally(shit rolls down hill, lol). Oh well, everyone's gotta be the new guy some time.

I went to the Padre's/Giant's game last night, working one of the consession stands. It was actually pretty fun, I got pretty good at pouring beer from the tap, lol. THE GIANTS WON! THEY'RE STILL IN IT! It was a great game, The Giants came back in the 9th, scored two runs and took the game.

Other than that, I've just been kickin back and playin my bass. I enjoyed my time home, it was much needed. Thank you to Sean, who, even though he might forget about you when yur not, seems to always be there for you when yur down.

Post more later, have fun y'all...
