Be Careful What You Wish For
Today is my first day in a new office, working with an entirely different team on a program completely opposite of what I've been doing over the last three years. I've been asking for this change for some time now and I finally got it.
I was supposed to move to Los Angeles for this job, but my orders were cancelled and I was told to sit and wait. Of course if you're in the military, 'Hurry Up and Wait' is one of those mottos that are never advertised yet utilized daily. Looks like the wait is over.
Light blogging today, but I should be back to 100% soon. My 1 year blogiversary sort of passed on 6 August, but I might just use 19 August as my day because that's when I left to Iraq last year. That deployment was the purpose of this blog. When I came back home it became my way of staying busy in an extremely boring and slow job. Now that the job is changing, we'll see how this thing changes with it.
Change is good, but I am being cautious. After all, the only true highlights over the past three years of work were my two deployments to Iraq and Kyrgyzstan. I was never meant to sit in an office, and I'm headed to a much bigger one. Hopefully this new place will be different.
I really hope it's different.

Fingers crossed that this is different enough for you to feel like you've found a good place to be.
You deserve a good change!
Good luck with the new job.1:29 PM
I wish you the best El Capitan and hope it is different for you. Is this new office you're in in LA.
Also, congrats on over 1 year blogging. I need to back track through all your old archives and see what you had to say back then.
You're a funny dude, in a good way ;) and I'd bet I'd crack the hell up on some of your old posts.
And oh, btw, I'm going to MEPS on Monday the 22nd...and not for going pilot...eek, waiting for the all tomatoes to get thrown at me.
Wishin' you luck in the new place. Hope it makes you happy!6:43 PM
