The REAL last day in the Air Force

Well, today is officially my last day in the US Air Force. I actually received my discharge certificate today to make it hit home even more. Oh, and here's some stone cold honesty...I think I made a mistake going civilian. No, I don't think I'll change my mind when I finally start's just the AF was alright in my book. I seem to think I got out more because of all my friends jumping/jumped ship and not because I 100% wanted to. Yet, again, I've made the choice...and I need to keep the head up and just get working to get my mind off the Air Force.

Long time, no post.

Anyways, here's the down and dirty. My birthday was last week and after finally deciding to celebrate it by having a little party at a martini bar in Virginia Beach, things decided to turn sour. First, I wake up the morning of my big day with a cough (little did I know what this was foretelling. I had a cool meal made by mom at the family's house, and then went with Aaron to Bailey's for a beer.

That night I get no sleep...and next thing I know, it's Sunday before I even leave the apartment again (birthday was Thursday, party was going to be Saturday night). I was sick with I would like to think is some flu like symptoms that literally kicked my ass around a bit. This also put a hamper on the job search too...since I missed an important call that Friday.

No worries though...I'm 2 days ways from my official discharge date from the Air Force and I'm not that nervous...still have leads and a nest egg. Oh, and I'm still limiting my search to here..although come mid-Oct if nothing is lined up, DC it is.

News on the job front

After a promising initial interview yesterday (and a even a few tests to take at home), I waited all day to hear a call back for a full interview. This isn't just for one position though...and you'll be happy to know that they are both in the Hampton Roads area. One in Williamsburg and the other in Virginia Beach. Oh well, here's to getting a call on my lucky day.

Speaking of which, I'll wake up tomorrow 29 years old. Ugh. I don't feel that old...but numbers don't lie. LOL

Quick DC Trip

So, I went up to DC on the spur of the moment on Saturday to hang out with Dan. You know what, it could be the awesome place Dan and Bobby have in Crystal City...but you guessed it. I'm thinking I would like to live there again. I think it's time to open up the job search...especially since things aren't going well down here search wise.

Tried it on

Well, here is the suit in all it's glory. Money well spent if you ask I just need to get some interviews set up.

On a side note, I have my follow up with the hospital tomorrow, regarding the surgery. I honestly feel 95% back to my normal self...although I hate the look of the scar. Although, due to its location, not many people will ever get to see it. haha

I did it.

I did it...I just buckled down and got the iPhone. Wanted to grab a now-discontinued 4GB before they flew off the shelves. I'm in love and the GTI has competition for my affections (such is the life a single gadget freak). no more toys outside of Halo 3 until I get that new job.

Which by the way, could be in D.C. I'm officially opening that option up in the next week or two if nothing happens down here.

*sigh* I love/hate Apple. they announced all kinds of new iPods today. I kinda like the new nano...but the kicker is the the iPhone price drops. Man, I would be all over that if I had employment lined up.

I escaped!

Well, I finally made it out of the apartment on my own today. It was only a short visit to the parents' house in my finest gym attire (only wearing that because jeans bothered me). But the GTI got some driving action in and I got to hit up Wendy's on the way home for a nice salad and change of pace.

Now it's time for me to really get on the ball with this job search here goes nothing!
