December Tidings

6 12 2011

Well folks, it’s officially December. I can’t say this has been the most productive month so far…

I’ve been watching a lot of Teen Mom, Sister Wives, Real World, Gossip Girl, Desperate Housewives, and 19 Kids and Counting. Television kind of sucks your life away…I don’t know why I watch so much of it. Seriously on the weekend it’s like an all day thing and then all of a sudden it’s 8pm…where’d the day go? There’s this book called “The Black Rock”. I haven’t actually read it, but Sis Roch was telling me about it. It’s about this tribe back in the day who would waste away their lives staring at this black rock. They were so consumed by this rock that their lives flew by so fast and they accomplished nothing. Then all of a sudden they were old and crippled and they didn’t know where the time went. Kind of like a television box, no?

Speaking of black rocks, does anyone else think Kim K’s engagement/wedding ring was offensively large!? Like, 20 carats too large. Perhaps she will donate it to charity seeing as it didn’t really pan out..

Oh, and working. Which consists of going to classes for my upcoming duty on board a ship. Some diverse classes let me tell you.

We went down to Point Loma and Coronado Beach the other day and took some photos. It was a blast. If only I could do this for a living! But I don’t want my passion to become a job. So I’m happy doing it on my free time for now.

Me and the Missouri Man didn’t work out… Long story but I’m just not cut out for this long distance thing. I’ve known him since I was young, so we’re still going to be friends, but it sucks it didn’t work out. He can’t leave Missouri because of his job and I can’t leave CA because of my job. So that’s that. I think I’m giving up in the long-distance world of dating. It’s a hundred times harder than having a normal relationship. Every little problem is just magnified. I don’t know how people in the military get married or have kids. Well, the kids thing is easy. As for finding someone to spend your life with, you actually have to be in the same state at least to make things work. Considering I’ll be moving around for the next 13 years until retirement…that doesn’t make me very marketable.

Me and Sista Roch were discussing the other day how former bf’s just come out of the woodwork sometimes. That same day someone I knew in Bahrain emailed me out of the blue. He’d been on deployment for the last few months and just got back and wanted to see what I was up to. Why do guys randomly email/text/message you out of the blue? Well, my theory is that they’d like to keep you around in case they are in the same place as you and they want to hook up. That’s really the only reason I can see why they would want to string you along… And it’s never a, “Hey, how are you doing? How’s school? How’s work? Great, I’m doing well. Welp, have a good one!” No, it’s some crap about how they miss you and they wish they were where you were and so on. Well, I’m onto you boys in the woodwork. I’m not buyin it!

And, on top of that Mista B gets here in a week. We’re stationed on the same ship…I know what are the odds. So, mixed feelings about that. I haven’t seen him since April and I hope it’s not weird seeing him. I have been thinking about him. It’s not like you date someone and then break up and forget they existed and stop caring. So, it will be nice to catch up.

In that same department, an ex from Hawaii might be moving here for a job. He finds out in January. Weird. It seems like everyone and their mother are moving to California. Specifically San Diego. We don’t really talk much. We used to, but it’s gotten less and less over the years. I don’t really have any romantical feelings for him, but it would be nice to meet up and catch up on what he’s been doing.

AND, W is coming here in January for drill for a couple weeks. I haven’t seen him since summer of 2010 when we broke up for good. But we’ve been talking quite a bit. I still miss him and wonder what he’s doing all the time and wish that he would miss me. I’ve never really gotten a straight answer out of him about anything. I’m the wear-your-heart-on-your-sleeve type of person. And his is locked in a deep deep dark cave inside his chest. Maybe he doesn’t even know what he’s thinking or feeling. Guys are never good at that shit. But we basically have been talking for five years now. We dated for about a year when we were in Hawaii. Then we both got out of the military and it became a long-distance relationship. My favorite. Guess what, it didn’t work. I went to Bahrain and he went back to Hawaii and even though we kept talking the relationship thing didn’t pan out. But I’ve always wanted to be with him, regardless. It’s just tough because it’s up in the air where he’ll be for the next several years. I know I still have feelings for him, so maybe we’ll talk while he’s out here and hash some things out.

See what I mean, woodwork.


It’s December. Snow, get your ass in gear.

7 12 2010

Watching a new show. It’s called “V”. About aliens and shit. I think it’s a remake of an old tv show. It’s got Juliet from Lost in it, so how bad can it be?? I rented the first disc.

Got a new guitar a couple days ago. She’s a beaut. It’s a washburn and it’s so pretty. New strings, nice and tuned, sounds AMAZING. Like real music. Working on “Our Song” by Taylor Swift, “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon, and “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift”.

Beautiful sunset the other night. Who knew the middle east could look so nice. I’ll leave out the part that there were over 20 black flags behind me. Black flags mean it’s a Shi’a neighborhood = AMERICANS GO AWAY. Go far far away. Baaasically a sign that we are not welcome there. That would explain all of the dirty looks and stares. That, or the fact we were the only whities within a ten mile radius.

OH, and started watching “Sons of Anarchy”. Only through the first episode so far, but it has the mom from Married With Children in it, so clearly it’s pretty BA. And it has Angie from Desperate Houswives..she’s basically a crackwhore baby mama of the main character. Who’s pretty hot btw. He’s got some rather scraggly hair, but I guess I can get behind it. = )

Got the xmas tree put up, complete with stockings and gifts surrounding the little greenie. It’s a midget pine. Can’t be havin a largical tree in here. I have a real life one back home, in storage, but just too much of a hassle to go carrying it around the world. The tree looks pretty funny considering it’s desert outside, next to the ocean and summer weather. Just like HI I suppose. Xmas just isn’t the same without the snow and cold weather. Momasita sent me a pic of their new house in IA, it’s snowing back home. December, makes sense = )

Perhaps it makes me a bit homesick to see snow. I’ve had one winter in the last five years. I did miss the cold, but several months of cold is a little much. I’m excited to go visit their place in IA. The midwest is a place like no other. Good people, good eats, plenty to do. I’ll prob retire there someday. No matter where you settle down you can always travel to wherever you’d like. Especially when you’re retired. Plus, it would be nice to be close to family and friends. Except one thing..driving in the snow sucks balls. I’ve almost got in so many accidents driving in the snow/ice.
