    Current music:Depeche Mode - I Feel Loved

    Average Day
    Well, I haven't posted in a while...or consistently posted in a while, anyway.

    My routine is pretty average. I get up at around 6:00 (sometimes earlier, if I have enough willpower to get out of bed), make a lunch, get to work for 7 and work until 3. I help the mechanics there do thier thing, or I'll work on my own, depends on the situation. I'm getting lots of good experience here, but I still can't wait to get the fuck out.

    I'm actually saving money now. I haven't saved any money all year..what the hell is wrong with me? I've been working for 5 years straight and all I have to show for it is a whole lot of not much. But I finally organized myself so I can actually start putting money away. It's really important I do, 'cause once I'm out of the Army, i'll be jobless until I get to Calgary, and moving there and paying rent is gonna cost, so I better be prepared.

    Kim and I have been looking at Ikea furniture and apartments together online. It's awesome, but I'd rather do it with her, instead of online. I miss her so much.

    I called SAIT today and they told me that they're reviewing my application and they should send me something in the mail soon telling me if I'm accepted or not for the Heavy Equipment Tech. I can't wait. I'm so stoked for this. It's yet another big change in my lifestyle, but I need to try new things until I'm happy. My belief is, "why be miserable" I mean, sure, I could have stayed in the army, make steady money (not necessarily that good), get all kinds of benefits and then retire at 40 with a pention, but why be miserable? I can make 5x the money doing similar work in the civilian world, be freer to do what I want, when I want to do it, and best of all, I get to live with Kim! YA!

    Well, I'm gonna hit the sack..I'm tired and I dont want to be a zombie tomorrow morning. Night.
