To Boldly Go...

Its been awhile since I last posted anything, really not sure if anyone reads these but I guess its best to catolog one's adventures so one day I can look back and see all the fun/interesting times that I went through as a brand new 2nd Lt.

Since the last post I have traveled from Colorado back to Germany spending almost 24 hours of traveling in between my two destinations, but now that I'm back in Germany I really don't feel like anything has changed but yet as if everything almost stayed the same as I was gone. I do have some issues that need to be taken care of but as the holidays are upon us I cannot take care of them till next week, which may be an issue but it'll work out.

As this new year approaches and we all say good bye to the old, I look back and see how far my life has come from just being a college student to suddenly thrusted into the deep end of life without and floatation device to hold me afloat. Surprisingly I have surpassed my own expectations and have been able to keep my head somewhat afloat. But this new year holds great promises to myself and hopefully others as well.

This place seems so distant from anything that is normal and familiar to me so the title is almost befitting of itself. So now as I sit here looking at the near future with a trickle of fear rolling down my spine but yet a twinkle of hope flashing in my eyes, I march on into the great unknown with an open mind and heart waiting to experience the greatest adventures of my life.

First Edition

Well, this will be my official "First Edition" to this new and exciting life that I have been building up for almost 4 years now. Ever Since my commissioning ceremony in July, I have been starting what almost seems to be the official first chapter of my life (my independent life that is). Even though I was living on my on through college, now it just seems so surreal that I am officially on my own living in a strange and interesting location such as Germany, thousands of miles away from home and family.

So this will be my official note taker of life as I journey through my different perilous adventures roaming the ever-changing world.

Just recently I have spent the last 3 months in the lovely city of San Antonio, Texas learning to become the LRO that I have been chosen to be as an Air Force Officer. Those three months will go down as some of the best of my life because I was given the opportunity to become close with someone that I had not thought possible. As my time has surely come to an end in Texas, I am sad to have to leave for specific reasons known only by two people. My journey throughout Texas will always be memorable and will be the bedrock to a better brighter future for me.

Now as I come home for Christmas and have surprised my mother with a lovely Christmas gift (me) I sit here and wonder what will this next chapter bring me as I prepare to officially start my career within the Air Force and begin on this journey to distance myself from my wild and frivolous youth, to become a mature adult in today's society. Hopefully it will be one a great happiness and good fortunes, but as all know will have some bumps in the roads that will detour one from having that fulfilled life. So let us begin to follow my adventures as this "Lone Ranger" that travels to and fro from place to place, learning to live life on my own.
