I guess that you could say that I have needed to “update” for a bit, but need is such a funny word. The last few months have just been odd to say the least. But, here goes. So, I was working at the Portland air base, but the wing that I was working for got closed by the military, so I transferred over to the National Guard, but I have to go to school in Mississippi for a while to get certified, but that also will soon end. I got offered a job working at the VA hospital in P-town, so that’s where I am hoping to work when I get back, I also got offered a civilian position working for the guard, but I don’t know if I can take more of this military thing. I also got a job working at verizon digging ditches and other such fun manual labor kind of stuff. So, three totally different jobs than I was thinking about before, but ya, perhaps something will happen.

I also have finished the grad school application and am now waiting. I don’t know that I really like the waiting, it seems harder than the waiting for the deadline, this is just waiting on them to call me or something. I should hear back in early November and they will set up an interview for December. Well, they might set up an interview. |That’s the thing that drives me nuts, I guess that I have never really applied to a school and thought that I might not get in. I love Oregon State, but for the most part, if you have a pulse and have a way to pay, they will let you in. I fear so much that I wont get into school, perhaps its like the job thing, I fear almost to want it because if I want it, it hurts more when it does not happen. But a job is just a job, I will get one or more of the ones that I want, or something will happen, but man, fearing that I wont get into the school sucks. I guess that I should approach it with the same kind of feelings, that something will work out, perhaps I will get there some day. Ya, that’s my life in a nutshell for the last few months. Hope that I might get a chance to update other interesting things that happen as they happen.
