uh huh

Imagine, if you will, a nearly empty room. A single light, with a box on the floor for a chair. A desk spare of any contents, and a lone keyboard and mouse. That is me, writing to you right now. I have, literally, nothing left here. I have thrown away even more stuff, it’s amazing.

I have one table left, cluttered with crap. Papers, pay stubs, books, signs, headphones, blank CD’s, and the scriptures I got from my grandparents when I was 8. Dated March 10, 1991. Weird.

I just need to find a box to cram all this junk into, and I’m almost not ready to go.

Only thing left is everything.

Work goodbye:

I’m not really sure where to start.

For the past two years I have been pursuing my interest in aviation. For as long as I can remember I knew I wanted to be a pilot. Encouraged by relatives, and friends, I began training for my Private Pilots license two summers ago. Trying to balance work and training at the same time, made the progress slow. I knew that one day I would have to dedicate my full attention to flying. Those days are now.

I have been given the opportunity to attend a school in Vero Beach Florida, FlightSafety. That is where I will receive training for multiple FAA certifications, which will allow me to fly commercially, as well as instruct my own students one day. I currently have no long term goal for airline, or specific career choice. I’m interested in medical transports, fire suppression, private and corporate charter.

It’s been fun working with everyone. I look up to and admire the entire IT staff, as they have all taught me something. I will never forget my experiences here.

If you’re at all interested about my progress, I have setup a web journal at http://www.blizzue.com (Still a nerd at heart).

My last day is Friday the 19th of August. I will be at Capones that evening if you care to join me. My cell number will not change.

Darkmeat out.

Work

This is the first day, of the last week, at my current job.

‘You’ve been missing a lot of work lately…’
‘I wouldn’t say that I’ve been missing it Bobs.’

Over the last few weeks I have had more fun with friends, than I have had in a long time. I have been more places than I have ever been in my entire life, here in Coeur d’Alene. Having lived here for so long, and still be able to say ‘I’ve never been there’ is kind of pathetic. There are few places left on the ‘I never’ list now.

I have said some good byes, and will be saying more this week I’m sure.

I’m starting to feel that I’m really ready to leave.

My stuff

Whatever odds and ends I had left, I gave away to a friend yesterday. It was more of a nervous cleaning moment than anything, then I had the idea. I don’t have to throw this all away! My CD’s, 4 motherboards, a bunch of cables, keyboard, mouse, copies of miscellaneous games, headphones, books, blank CDs, probably more, but I can’t remember. That was a long sentence. I gave it all to him.

I had a blanket covering one of the skylights that directly shines sunlight onto my monitor. I now instantly regret removing it.

today

I guess I’m writing this more because I haven’t in a few days, and less because I have something to say. The days have just been dragging out, going to work, coming home. Getting up, going to work. I have been trying to enjoy the company of friends as much as possible, but circumstances never seem to be good.

I’m counting the days I have left at work. Can’t wait to be done with this job, and this place. Yet I’m still scared to move on.

Change is coming like a freight train, and I’m in the way.
