Wonder Woman 1984 was a fun movie. No, I’ll say it was a very good movie. I was worried because many sequels simply cannot fulfill on their promises. The exception being Aliens or Terminator 2. And yes. I am miffed at the lousy work with military uniforms also lack of bearing and all things tactical. […]Read More Wonder Woman 1984
A year ago, in August, I was out enjoying some Oregon outside. I was soon to deploy to Somalia and I wanted to soak up some Pacific Northwest. I’d been hiking a lot and on this particular night I had a spotting scope and an adapter for my iPhone and was attempting to take a […]Read More Taking pictures of Nighthawks before/after deployment
Spring of 2019 I went to a TAG match with some soldiers from my company. It is a three day event where soldiers compete in shooting. When I got there and met a friend of mine who was running it, I found out that he was a bit short of staff in running it. I […]Read More Knee

( Cross posted from my other blog where I’m learning about nerdy goodness ) I’m taking a course in SkillCrush in front-end webdev. I really enjoy it. The atmosphere is open and inviting and helpful. I heartily recommend their products. However, it’s been said in the course that one needed a laptop and not an […]Read More Web dev on an iPad 2
I’ve toyed with the idea of a podcast for over a year now. I even have a name picked out. But it wasn’t something that I thought had a ‘regularness’ to it. That is, I didn’t have an idea of ‘the X of the week’. But I do know some pretty neat people. My friends […]Read More podcast?
I am planning on moving to southern Oregon when I return from deployment. I was responding to an email from my Sweetheart about the move, stating that I’ve been pondering a move to a couple of different locations for a while now. On my list of places were Portland, Sisters, Bend, Eugene (always a soft […]Read More What it could be like in Ashland
When I was young I travelled alone,

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.

I’ve hovered at 195 for months. Eating army chow hall food isn’t conducive to health. Even trying half-assed (eating only 1 corndog) does nothing. The chow hall, like all chow halls, is generally lacking in vegetables. I’ve eaten more zucchini these past couple of months than anything have my entire life before meow. But no […]Read More Carbs
