Hitting the Wall « Stuff Important to Me »

I dunno. It seems I've hit it awfully early this deployment. I've hardly been gone two weeks.

What I mean is the wall of loneliness/isolation. I have two co-workers here, but they work the other two shifts. I interact with the air crews, but only to give them briefings.

At home, I have co-workers to joke with, kids to play with, a wife to talk to in bed at night.

Here? A laptop computer, a guitar, and this blog.


I'll be okay, but I can't wait to get home. Only about 6 weeks to go... least I'm happier with my blog colors now.

Whyn't you come around and annoy your blog friends with puns like you used to do?

I won't ask for puns (I already have a father for that, thank you very much), but I will say the color scheme is much improved. Maybe you could use the downtime to re-memorize obscure kanji? I know they fall out of my brain with alarming frequency, and Japanese only uses about 2000 in daily life and another few hundred for most works of literature.

hang in there...guitar does help, right? We'll expect a catalogue by the time you get back. :)

Keep your chin up; this too shall pass. If you feel like it, and have an opportunity to do so, drop me a line. We can talk books. I've found a few I think you'd enjoy.

Stay safe.
