Day 4

I've wanted to start up another blog for some time, and what better time than now. Today is "Day 4" of my being a commissioned officer in the U.S. Air Force (The best Air Force in the world!)-- always have to throw that in there to show some pride, and almost two weeks as being an undergrad from the University of South Florida (Go Bulls!!). 

With some insistence from a fellow co-worker and blogger, I figured that as I transition from a semi "responsibility free" college student, whose main worries were whether I could pay rent and still have enough money to party on the weekend (yeah, realize how food wasn't really an issue...I could always mooch from my mom 15 mins away or do the whole "liquid diet" dealio), to an adult with responsibilities with not only my life, but the lives of those I will be leading, I would try and track my journey- however many mistakes and bloopers I may have on the way.

I can't say that I'm not being proactive. Among the stress of having to contact TMO (the people who pack and move your stuff) there is my having to cancel my Bright House service, painting and moving my stuff from my apartment to my parent's house for the TMO people to pick-up. It's tough. Not only that, I am constantly thinking about what the future will have in store. Hopefully, I'll learn a few things from the books I picked up from Barnes and Nobles today...maybe something will soak into my pretty stubborn brain. 

Now my boyfriend is also military, albeit a Lieutenant (LT) in the Army, and  has pretty much the same job as me (Military Police or MP). It'll be a tough road for us both.

So, where am I headed? Alabama, then Texas, and from there only God will know. As a Security Forces Officer, the likelihood of being sent overseas is pretty high...heh, let's be optimistic here and hope for a silver lining.

"Hurry up and wait". A very famous military phrase. It sucks. The more time you have to think, the more doubts creep up and worries settle in. 

However, I plan on enjoying the month and a half I have here with as many friends and family outings as possible and hopefully have some amusing memories to take with me. 

This blog will hopefully be entertaining and eye-opening. Not all people are like me; In fact, I'm unique (just like everybody else, right?). Bear with me. haha

"Hurry up and wait
So close, but so far away
Everything that you've always dreamed of
Close enough for you to taste
But you just can't touch

You wanna show the world, but no one knows your name yet
Wonder when and where and how you're gonna make it
You know you can if you get the chance
In your face as the door keeps slamming
Now you're feeling more and more frustrated
And you're getting all kind of impatient waiting

We live and we learn to take
One step at a time
There's no need to rush
It's like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It's gonna happen and it's
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time"
