Halloween and Help!

First and foremost, happy Halloween, my lovely bloggy friends and IRL friends alike.

Although Halloween is no where near my favorite holiday, in fact, it might be my least favorite, I am trying to be positive about this day. I think it's helping me be a little less Scroog-y.

On Sunday, although I was working throughout most of it, my family carved pumpkins! I am not a fan of carving pumpkins, so my lil' guy ended up being quite simple. Plus, I was about 5 hours late to the party so I wasn't really in the pumpkin carving spirit, if there is such a thing.
I do, however, quite enjoy pumpkin seeds. Eating those seed will hopefully make all that carving nonsense worth it.

In other news, I am in the market for some awesome bloggers to take over my blog while I'm in Basic training. I believe that once I finish that and get to AIT, I will have a computer, so that won't be an issue, but for the 10 weeks that I'm in basic, I want to have a few guest posters to keep this lil' bloggy from laying dormant.

I have a family member that is going to publish a few letters that I will write to her as often as I can and keep you all up to date on my goings on, should I feel like I can, but I definitely want to keep this lil beauty up and running. :)

I have some time, but I want to get some stuff organized ASAP so that I don't have to worry about it. I've got a lot of spots to fill so please, if you'd like to be a guest poster, contact me via e-mail!  You can be a new follower, an old follower, a NON-follower. Anyone that would like to write on this bloggy, please let me know!

I hope you all have a fantastic Halloween! I know I'm enjoying this day where everyone at work is procrastinating and not working :P

And don't forget, it's Wednesday, so head over to one of the following blogs and link up!

There are actually people out there that think I'm cool...?

When I started this blog, I'll admit, I wanted to be famous. I thought about how awesome it would be to be one of those blogs that people talk about at the dinner table. I wanted to have a popular story that everyone thought was interesting and unique.
I quickly learned that that wasn't going to get me anywhere in my blogging life. I didn't like it.  My posts felt forced. I felt like it wasn't for me, it was just for show. Luckily, that bad attitude I had in the very beginning did not stick. And oddly enough, when I started to blog more for me and less for popularity, or really, not for popularity at all, my blog stats started to skyrocket.  Duh. I should have known that from the very beginning!
But anyway, now that I have my feet planted firmly in the soil of this earth, I have really found my voice as a blogger. I don't say that to toot my own horn, per se, but it's just true. I've figured out what I like to talk about and how I like to blog. And apparently, there are people out there who actually thing that I'm cool for it!
Exhibit A:
 Jen, one of the most dedicated bloggy followers I've ever encountered has presented me with this award. I don't know how she does it, but she comments on like every one of my posts the second they go up, and it completely warms my heart. I appreciate it every single time! I love to read her blog and to see her comments. If you aren't following her in some way, I highly recommend it!
But anyway, I'm kind of going to break the rules of this award because I seriously don't think that I could award just 15 people with this...I have encountered so many beautiful bloggers, I really don't think that I can do it, so I'm going to tell you 7 fun facts and I'm going to give a blanket award to all the blogs that I follow and the ones that follow me! I love to read what you have to say. You are really all beautiful bloggers inside and out. Without this bloggy, I don't know where I would be.
So, onward with my 7 details about myself-y self.
I seriously love to cross stitch. I would do it all day every day if it wasn't so annoying to change floss colors and pick patterns to stitch.
I prefer a cucumber as a snack to all over snacky-like foods. Even desserts. :/
I have a ladybug pillow pet named Irene. My mom got her for me right after I got out of the hospital last year. She went everywhere with me as my arm rest for quite a while...
I hate pumpkin things...I hate cookies. But I love pumpkin cookies.
Some days, I want to quit my job and be a professional blogger. Then I remember that I's gots bills to pays...
I'm currently going through my I'd-rather-party-all-night-and-day phase.  I chose to ignore that nagging temptation in high school, and now, it's tromping on me with all it's might asking me to come out and play...
Sometimes, I dream that my life is like Night At The Museum 2 and I can jump into the Beatles Poster in my room...In fact, I have that dream all the time.
And now that I've talked more about myself, quite like I do each time I blog, I shall snuggle up with Irene and my wooby and forget that there is a world outside, for today is my day off.

Maybe, Just Maybe...

If you've been following along for a while, you know that I was engaged when I started this lil' bloggy. You also know that I am no longer.

Some days, when I think about it all, I hurt. I think about all my regret and all my pain. I think about how badly I still want everything that we were. Usually, all I can think about is how much I hate, hate, hate. But...

afew days ago, maybe a week or so ago, I was driving home from work and I had some sunflower seeds I was snacking on. I was putting the shells in a little baggy in my cup holder. Suddenly, I started to laugh aloud.  I wasn't listening to music or anything so I could just hear my self laughing hysterically as I remember an experience I had with J.

We were driving to Pocatello for a bluegrass festival and I was at the wheel. Why, I have no idea. I hate to drive. J drove almost our entire relationship even though it was almost always my car we drove in, so I haven't a clue why I decided that a two hour drive would be cool...But anyway, that's beside the point. I was, again, snacking on some seeds and placing the shells in a supposedly empty Red Bull can in the cup holder. J looks over at me and says, "Where are you putting those?!" as he follows my hand down to the can in the cup holder...
I was putting my shell into his full Red Bull...Whoops! Now, I've probably never told ya'll about this, but J loves Red Bull. Like, loves it. I constantly wondered if it held a larger space in his heart than I did...So you can imagine the look on his face when he realized that I'd tainted his red bull with my sunflower seed shells. He was so mad... I don't think I had ever seen him so angry at me...
And now you're like...uh okay, what was the point of that story. Well I'll tell you:  Usually, I would have thought about that  day in the car on the way to Pocatello and I wouldn't have been able to eat another seed. I would have turned on some loud ,angry music that J doesn't like and attempted to drown out the ache I felt inside because of that memory. Instead, though, I laughed. I laughed a big and full, and if I'm not mistaken, happy laugh.

I take this as a good thing...I have really been through a whole lot of shitty and tough stuff in this short life I've lived. But I think that I have been turning good memories into bad ones. Instead of remember how fantastic that summer was and how I will never forget it as long as I live, I just let it hurt me...I can't do that anymore. I can't let the tough stuff eat me up. I just need to be okay. And maybe, just maybe, I will be.

The Ghost of Halloweens Past

Before I launch into the Sunday Social this morning, I would first like to Congratulate Kim for winning my DefineBliss 50 Followers (now 62!) Giveaway. I will be contacting you by email shortly! I hope I don't lose any new friends now that it's over! Also, if you read my last post you read a few things that I want. The last one was a computer...Well, Last night, I randomly decided to make a gigantic purchase and buy a laptop! Crazy right?! I'm blogging from it right now and I am so excited about it!
Sunday Social
But now, onward to the Sunday Social.  You can head over to Neely's blog, A Complete Waste of Makeup and link up too!
1. Favorite Halloween costume as a kid?
I went as a gypsy in the first grade. I got this awesome silky dress thing that I wore as jammies for several years after that. I thought I was so awesome. Sadly, I don't have a clue where I would find any pictures of this...But I seriously wore that costume forever...Definitely my favorite.
2. If I could go back a dress up as something I didn't before?
I would dress up as a Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I love Buffy. She's basically my hero, but I was a little young to watch it, so I wouldn't have wanted to dress as her, but how cool would that have been?!
3. Favorite costume as an adult?
I'm a total Halloween Scrooge and I always have been.  It was always cold when it came time to trick-or-treat, candy has always hurt my teeth, I don't like to be scared and I'm not much of a partier...Basically, I don't like Halloween. But this year, I decided to go out and have some fun on Friday night I even dressed up if you can believe that!
Seems how this is the first year that I've dressed up as an "adult" this is my favorite costume!
4. Favorite Halloween candy?
Smarties. Hands down, Smarties are my favorite Halloween candy. I will trade every candy but my Almond Joys and Hershey bars for Smarties...I'm a weirdo, because they're like the dumbest candy ever, but they're my fave.
5. Best Halloween Memory?
I don't really have a specific favorite Halloween memory, but my favorite Halloween tradition we have is we go to my grandpa's house and eat chili while all the kids trick-or-treat all over the neighborhood. It's always so fun to hang out, eat too much chili and watch random crap on TV and laugh about old memories.
6. Favorite scary movie?
I hate scary movies. So instead, I'm going to tell you my favorite Halloween movies. I have two.
Hocus Pocus...Oh man I love Hocus Pocus
Double Double Toil and Trouble
Growing up, we watched this Mary-Kate and Ashley movie all the time around Halloween. We were nuts for it.
And that concludes the Sunday Social for today! I'm going to play with my new computer and eat some pizza rolls from my PK (personal kitchen...) hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

My Wants and Some Places

As it turns out, I'm not so good at this challenge! But I still really like it and I want to stick with it until the end!
This day that I miss is 7 wants. Sadly, I have lots of wants. I am very ambitious and I strive to attain many things. I don't necessarily think that it's bad to want, but sometimes, I makes me seem ungrateful for the things that I already have. I assure you, I am happy (most days...) with what I have but wants keep us on our toes and working to achieve more!

I want...
1. To love and be loved. Doesn't everybody? When you're dreaming with a broken heart, the waking up really is the hardest part. I don't want to feel that loss when I wake up anymore. I want to dream of a new love that loves me and will stick by my side no matter the challenges that we face...
2. I want higher education. I want to learn more. I want to learn...everything. Like I said, I am so ambitious. I just want to fill my head with all sorts of knowledge that I can apply to my life and also so I can look cool with all my facts about all things ;)
3. I want muscles. Oh man to I want to have awesome muscles that you can see when I'm not flexing...I'm not srue that it will ever happen though. Maybe some day...
4. I want a cherry red, hatchback Subaru Impreza...I can't really explain to you why, I just...want one. Bad. I'm saving up now and I'm hoping that by the time I'm finished with AIT I'll have enough saved up to get me one.
5. I want spaghetti. That might sound stupid, but seriously? I want it all the time. It's my favorite food and I just can't resist it. In fact, I want it right now.
6. I want happiness. I want happiness so bad that it hurts. I'm not completely miserable all the time...but it's just so hard to be down right happy about my life. I want that so bad.
7. Lastly, I want a freaking computer. I want to be able to make my blog more awesome without fighting with my sister over who gets to use my mom's computer. I want to get more work done while I'm at work...and I want to have all my own stuff on the computer without everyone else's make it all cloudy!

 This one is dangerous...Places...I decided to interpret this as place that I'd like to go instead of places that I have been. So here it goes!

1. Turkey! I took AP Art History in high school and I love architecture. This place is the most magnificent to me and I would love to see it in real life...Also, I love places that hold great significance to the world's history and Turkey is certainly one of them.

2. Greece. Again, I'm a sucker for the architecture and the art etc. But also, it's the birth palce of the Olympics which is...totally awesome!

3. Australia. Why? Because I want to see a kangaroo in real life and hear men speak to me in that beautiful accent while I lay on the beach...

4. Disneyland!!!! I have been there, but I really love that place. Every time I go is better than the last...

5. Washington DC. I want to go there because of all the obvious reason and especially because of the history. I also want to go to all of the historically significant places in the east
6.  Hawaii...Duh, why not?

Friday, Friday...gotta get down on Friday...

First of all, look how cute I am today! I started out in tight, dark teal dress, but I couldn't figure out a good way to make it look more work appropriate and less like I was going clubbing... I need some blazers or something to professionalize some of my less "worky" clothes. I'm getting pretty good at making my wardrobe very versitile. I've never really been all that into fashion, but with my recent shopping addiction, I've been looking pretty dang good! 

But then, I went outside to find this gross frost on my windows. It was thick too! Luckily, I remember that I had rear defrost, that made my life easier, but then I still had to scrape (took forever to find the scraper too!) in my dress...
end result:

Screw this...I'm gonna be late for work. Hopefully I don't wreck because of this frost I'm ignoring...

Anyway, that was my morning...icy, and cold. But my friend at work has pumpkin cookies. That makes everything better!

Now onto a radically different topic:
I am so popular in social media lately...I #hashtag and millions start liking. I think that I go to bed too early, because I wake up to this all the time.
And the funny things is, the one on the right is scolled to the bottom, there's like 5 more notifications and a text...wow, everyone loves my pictures Maybe I #hashtag too much! But I've also been posting a ton of stuff on Instagram and Twitter...I've almost hit my 1000th tweet already! I never thought I would like it as much as I do!

Are you following me?! Well you should be! You can also like my bloggy on Facebook for updates and to see my posts. If you don't like GFC or something, it's a great way to keep up with my bloggy!

Also, my giveaway! Rafflecopter seems to be giving me trouble, so what it's about to come down to, is I'm going to put names in a hat according to how many entries you have on rafflecopter and pull it out the old fashion way! I should know my winner by the end of the day!

Have a wonderful Friday my IRL (that "in real life") friends and bloggy friends alike!

Be The Good

Every Thursday, I go back to my blogging roots and I talk about a specific topic that typically goes a little bit deeper than most of my posts. They are usually things that I have been thinking a whole lot about.

This week, I've had a lot on my mind. but what's new, right? I've always got a lot going on in my head...

Yesterday was my grandma's birthday. We all went out to dinner and we talked about all of the things that we loved about her. We laughed at all the funny stories and we cried a little bit too. It got me thnking about how much of an impact we can have on others without even realizing it.

My grandma, as I have talked about before, was a really amazing person. She always taught us to put our best foot forward no matter what. She was ambitious, loved her family, and had a heart so big that she did some of the kindest things for strangers that I have ever seen a person do.

But how wonderful she was is almost beside the point. What I'm getting at is that as we live our day to day lives, everything we do can affect another person. If she hadn't been the strong role model that she was, I probably wouldn't be as strong a person as I am today. I try and use that to my advantage. I work hard to be the best person I can be. Because maybe, just maybe,  the things that I do and the way that I treat others will rub off on them.You just never know.

I fully believe that what goes around comes around. I think that the best thing you can do is pretend that every person you encounter is going to be heavily impacted by the way that you treat them. You never know what a difference you could make in their life.

Pay it forward and be the the good that you want to see in others. Maybe you will see it eventually.

Happy birthday Grandma, I am so greatful for all of the things that you taught me. I cannot wait to pass them on to my children and their children after that. Because of you, I can be the good...


This morning, I opened my work email to find this gem about the TV in the break room...I thought it was funny so I thought I might share it:

"All DVD’s must be approved by management. Even though a few of us enjoy The Walking Dead, not everyone wants to watch a zombie decapitation while eating a pepperoni Hot Pocket."

And after I laughed inappropriately at this I realized that I got stuck with one of the stupid office chairs instead of the comfortable ones...Needless to say, the laughing ceased.

Now, on to the real post!
Product Image

I am currently obsessed with Taylor Swift's new album "Red".
I really cannot stop listening to it and I wish that I was listening to it right now...But they took internet radio away at work : (

What I like about it, is that I feel like it completely describes the life of someone 18-25.
I relate to almost every song. It's catchy and fun to listen to...it's just so good.

So far my favorite songs are
I Knew You Were Trouble

Okay, I may as well just say the every song. There's not a single one that I don't like. I would highly recommend it to anyone that likes T-Swizzle or loves pop, because this album is...awesome and I'm in love.

Go buy it...

Winner of the Giveaway will be announced, hopefully later today!

I almost forgot to share with the Walkabout today!

Progress Report!

It feels like I haven't blogged in forever! Don't forget about my "50 Followers" DefineBliss giveaway! Today is the last day to enter!
She was at a show this week! Here is what her booth looked like!

Today's post is a bit of a mish-mash of everything. Usually, I throw down the Sunday Social, but I was tied up this weekend so I didn't get around to it.  And also, I wasn't really in the mood to blog. I've promised myself that I will never blog when I don't feel like it.  Blogging shouldn't be a chore, right?

I had drill with my reserve unit this weekend.
This month, we did an APFT. If you follow me on Twitter (@camocolored) you know that I passed!
Push-Ups: 26 ( I did 32, but only 26 of them counted...)
Sit ups: 60. (I could have done more. Next time, I will!)
2 mile run: 17:06 (my goal was 17:00!!)
I was sooo proud of that. I was more worried about the run than anything and I completely surprised myself. I think that I also surprised the soldiers around me. The SPC. That was counting for me sounded completely shocked every time I did a push-up. It sort of pissed me off a little. You should never judge a book by it's cover...But at the same time, I got satisfaction out of being a surprise.

I also looked much better in my hand-me-down uniform.
See that fuzzy patch in the center where my rank insignia is supposed to be? Well, because I passed my APFT, it won't be fuzzy anymore!! Woo!
I also "adjusted" my patrol cap so that it fit me a little bit better.
Yay for safety pins!

 I also got to see one of my old friends from the Marine DEP that is stationed in North Carolina. We had a good time talking politics and hanging out. We agree on like...everything so it was pretty easy to talk about. No warfare with words.

Plus, the other day, I got to Skype with one of my other Marine buddies who's on deployment right now. That was awesome. I don't realize how much I miss him until I get to see his face and it makes my week. It's great, but it is also hard to have all of my best friends so spread out...

So that's about it. I'm still living life, kicking ass and taking names, having a little bit of fun, and working like a dog to be the best that I can possibly be.

Happy Monday, Bloggy World
(if there is such a thing as a happy monday...)

Getting Inked?

Today's thought for the day is a little different than usual. It's just something that I've been thinking about. I'm not being as...deep today. Just thinkin'.
Most of my life, I have been against tattoos. At least, I was against putting them on my body, but since I've been old enough to get one, I've changed my mind. 
Sure, when I get old, my tattoos will be wrinkly, but so will my skin, and it's not going to look so great. So...whatever. I've made a rule for myself though. Every tattoo will have to be in a place that I can easily cover in in a short sleeved shirt. Also, I firmly believe that when you're naked, you should look naked. That means that I won't be getting any single tattoo bigger than my own hand. 
These are the tattoos I'm planning to get once I'm in AIT or once I get home.  
I feel like Pooh represents everything that is...innocence and love and friendship. I think I'd probably add a quote instead of his name at the bottom of the picture of him.
These are for my grandma, she loved butterflies and every time I see one, I think of her. 

"How can I go forward if I don't know which way I'm facing?"
-John Lennon 
That would go around the compass.  

And I'm sure that there are more than I want...but for now, this is the plan. I don't love that compass...I want to try and find something that I like more, but for now, it fits the basic idea. 

I'm not sure where the sudden love for body art came from, but I've found that I really like it.  As long as it's tasteful and it means something to you, it's not bad to have it. In fact, it can be a big part of who you are. 

Hopefully, when I get my first tattoo, I'll be able to blog about it and it will be awesome.

What do you think about my tattoo plans? What do you think about tattoos in general? Yea or nay?

What A Night...

Well, folks, I survived the one year anniversary of my accident...I was planning on giving the bike a try, but this is as close to my bike as I got yesterday...The sationary bike. I just couldn't bring myself to do it, unfortunately...
On the bright side, I had an amazing time at the concert. I went with Jessica (from DefineBliss), another cousin, and some of their friends. I ended up ditching them very early on. Early being the second we got there, I disappeared into the crowd.

The band we went to see was Taking Back Sunday.  I have been listening to them for literally ten years, and this was their ten years tour "TAYF10" that's "Tell All Your Friends" It's their first album and they played the whole thing. I knew almost every song!
It has been a long time since I have been to a concert like this, but I remember how it goes. I fought my way through a huge crowd to the front and I got pushed around for over an hour. Luckily, it was totally worth it. It was an awesome way to spend a night that, last year, was spent laid up in a hospital bed in a whole lot of pain...I got pretty beat up last night in a really rude crowd, but it was worth it to see a band I've been listening to for 10 years!
So this year, I allowed the crowd to dictate what my hair looked like, I found a pick stuck to my belly (ew.) in my shirt. It was about half way through their set when I found it. Which is awesome becuase if I hadn't noticed it, I wouldn't have been out of luck, I'm sure the sweat wouldn't have held it up for much longer (again...ew.) And When I was standing in the merchandise line, I got retweeted by the band's official Twitter account and I FREAKED. Hence the screenshot.

This part kind of sucks though...the bruised feet :( and the fact that I am currently at work and I really wish that I was laying in my bed right now is not cool.

Have you linked your post to the Wednesday Walkabout? Well, get to it! It's an awesome link up where the only rule, is to link to a specific post. Link your blog to one of the following blogs and meet a few new friends! and....GO!

I got broken once, so I'm going to go party to celebrate surviving it...

Well, the day is finally here. One year ago today, I got in the accident that changed my life forever.  Seems how I already posted about it, I won't be writing about it today. But if you missed it last week, feel free to check it out!
So go out on a bike ride, do a crazy awesome work out in the gym, drink a protein shake, and do a little dance for me today.  Maybe have a drink for me. I'm not old enough to, so someone will have to do it for me ;)
And if you do go on a bike ride, wear a freakin helmet! You don't want to end up with a brain like mine...I'm a bear of very little brain...

I'm going to a concert tonight to celebrate that I made it through this horrible accident.  It broke my arm, it broke my spirits, and it broke my heart, but there's good things ahead for me...good things.

Oh yeah, Don't forget about my giveaway! Hurry and enter! There are only 7 days left!

Hurry there are only 8 days left!

I am still a little bit behind on this, but oh well! I still want to do it! I really like this link up :)

So here it goes! 8 Fears...

1. I have always been afraid of ending up alone for the majority of my life...even when I was engaged, I was afraid of ending up alone...
2. Thunder...I hate thunder. Oddly enough, though, I'm not afraid of lightening. I'm scared of the part of a rainstorm that can't hurt me...
3. I'm not a very good swimmer, so I'm scared of drowning.
4. I'm afraid of heart break... (who isn't thought right?)
5. Sometimes, I fear happiness. That probably doesn't make sense, but the second you're happy, you run the risk of getting knocked down and losing it...
6. It scares me that I'm 19 years old and I've already lived more life than most of my friends.
7. I'm afraid that I'm never going to get a break and bad things are just going to keep happening to me while I continue to just...be a good person.
8. I'm afraid of moving on from my sadness. Because once it's gone...a door is closed. And I'm so not ready to close any doors.

 Now, without further ado, I give you, my favorite link up hosted by Neely at A Complete Waste Of Makeup.
I was so excited about this week because it's about books. And I looove books. This is a portion of my closet with my alpabetized by author book collection :) I'm a dork...


1. Favorite childhood book
I was not much of a read when I was a kid.  I read my fair share of Junie B. Jones and Horrible Harry, but I didn't really start to love books until Shadow Horse. After I read that book, I realized that as long as your reading something that you are enjoying, reading is freakin awesome. 

2 . Favorite Book lately
It has been a long time since I have sat down and read a book...It's amazing how easy it is for life to get in the way of something as simple as reading! I think the last book that I read and was completely in love with though, was Flowers For Algernon. I cried and cried but it was so good.  I so feel for the poor guy...All he wanted was to fit in and have friends...

Harry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-6)3. Book you wish you could live in.
I would definitely live in Harry Potter. I am a total Harry Potter nut and I have been since I first started to love reading. It would be so amazing to be a part of that awesome magical world that JK Rowling created...

4. If you could be any character from a book who would it be and why?
I would definitely be Huckleberry Finn.  I have always loved Mark Twain and I am obsessed with Huck Finn. Sure Tom Sawyer is cool, but Huck is so much more
adventureous. I also think that he has completely pure intentions in everything he does. I think that we're similar in many ways, but he has the courage to do
things that I wouldn't.

5. Favorite Book turned Movie?
Holes. Definitely loved Holes. There were several inconsistencies but I loved the way that they presented it. It was probably one of the books turned movie that I didn't have complaints about.

6. Favorite Magazines
I really only read Cosmopolitan Magazine. I think it's hilarious to read all the stories and advice. It's so funny to me how they talk about everything...It's hilarious to me!

I'm going to a hockey game Saturday night! I'm so excited. I loove hockey. We don't have a pro team in Salt Lake, but we do have the Grizzlies.  

A few of us in the "Future Soldier Program" were asked to attend a hockey game (free rink-side ticket!) to do a little bit of recruiting. We'll go out on ice and do a little mock-swear in ceremony to show people how cool we are or something. 

It'll be fun to hang out with them.  The only the other girl around and I get along really well so we should have a good time. I'll try to take a few pictures. Being rink-side, I should be able to take some pretty good ones!

You know what else is cool? We went to the ticket office so my family could get ticket. The guys in the office, after hearing what my family wanted to go for, gave them 6 row 2 tickets for the price of ONE! How freaking cool is that?! There are some really good people in this world.

I had another cool military related experience today too. 
At work, part of my job is to test new applicants to see if they have an aptitude using the program that we work with every day. I got to talking to one of my applicants and discovered that I was talking to an officer in the Army Reserve...Needless to say, I straightened up and started calling him sir. Mostly out of habit, but it was cool to run into a commissioned officer in my civilian job. Plus, he passed the test with flying colors, so I got to give him a job too! Awesome right?

I guess some pretty cool things will come out of this Army thing...

It might be pretty okay to be...Army Strong.  I think that what tomorrow brings just might be alright with me. :)
