the name of the game is...procrastination

what do you do if you haven't made a post in 2 weeks? go another two months before doing so. apparently, this is how i operate.

i haven't been up to too terribly much; not much debauchery, not much partying, and the like. i'm simply getting ready for my upcoming move. of course, i wasn't overly thrilled with pending orders to minot afb, north pole, but i'm trying to make the best of an unpalatable situation. here are the things i've promised myself, or things i'm simply looking forward to in the coming weeks:

1) i get to see my sister for the first time in 2 years, which means i finally get to meet my nephew. he doesn't know it yet, but i will be his favorite aunt.

2) i'm meeting up with some friends from high school, all of whom i haven't seen in ten years. we are going to busch gardens in williamsburg. speaking of which, i haven't stepped foot in york county for 6 years. i'm incredibly excited.

3) i've promised myself a cross-country road trip from jersey to minot. i haven't ever indulged myself in this manner so i'm way fucking excited. i'm going to ask my sister to burn some music for me. or will i finally break down and get an i-pod. who knows....who cares?

4) the town i'll be living in has a small state school, and they offer a journalism/communications degree. i'm fucking cool with that.

5) i need a fucking change of scenery. and one of my girlfriends is at minot, and i fucking miss her.

that's all i can think of for right now, but the main point is my list is growing. this is a far cry from the meltdown i had in one of my friend's offices five minutes after receiving the orders (february), and again in april when afpc kicked back my palace-chase package due to manning, nevermind force shaping will reopen and 40,000 more airmen will be invited to separate. i just won't be one of 'em for another 11 months.
