X-Mas Time

So it is almost X-Mas....lovely....I hate this time of the year. I realized yesterday that I haven't been truly excited about X-Mas for many many years. It just makes me realize what I do not have.....I see all my friends happy.....

I would be tons happier if we could skip X-Mas entirely, but still get the time off.

Yeah I am moody lately....always happenes this time of year...whether or not I am on happy pills.

I just wish.....

What I wish for is too personal to put on here.

So I have been out of the AF for almost 3 months now......I have to say it was very very tough being without a job after I got so used to having a paycheck.

I am finally starting to get caught up on the bills.

I found a job working as a contractor for Sprint....the pay is awesome.

So after the Cc was relieved I was offered another chance and I turned them down. I am just tired of all the BS and just can't handle another 3-6 months of more BS.

On a good note my terminal was approved to start 1 June. So my actual last day in the USAF is 17 june. WOOHOOOO!!!

Otherwise everything is just peachy.....I hope to go out and fish for a cobia.....i would love to get one of those.

Good news.....maybe

As of 0830 16 April 2007 my Commander Lt Col. ****** was relieved of Command. Still no idea if this will help me or not.

Looking like they still want me gone and it looks like I will be screwed out of a few weeks too.

Originally I thought I could start my terminal on 1 June, but it looks like they want me gone completly on 1 June. So I might be leaving nearly 3 weeks sooner then I thought.....

Da Bird

went fishing this weekend and didn't catch anything but a sunburn and a cold

But I did do a first for me....

As I was casting out I noticed a bird in the cast path and I had already released, well I actually hit a bird in was awesome and very funny. The bait hit the bird and not the 3 oz sinker I was using. The bird was just fine, just a bit startled and rather pissed.

Jerked around

Well it is nearly April and I still have not heard when my final day in the AF is. The rumor mill says 1 May 2007, I am pushing for 1 June 2007, but I do not have a clue. I cannot get a straight answer out of anyone.

On a lighter note my paperwork has been submitted to the VA so I should hear something in the next 2-3 months.

Otherwise I am just fishing and is amazingly but what little initiative I had for my job has disappeared, I don't even give a rat-shit anymore. I physically have to force myself to come to work every morning......this being jerked around is driving me more nuts.

Ok here is the scoop...

Basically in a 2 year period I have failed the PT Test 4 times in a row.

After the 3rd time I recieved an LOR or Letter Of Reprimand

After the 4th time I recieved another LOR and a UIF or U (something) Information File

Today I test again my waist went from a 44 to a 42. Although this does show a marked improvement it is a little too late. It is my fifth failure. The CC can offically boot me out in 30-60 days it is up to her. More then likely she will do exactly that.

Suprisingly I am not depressed, a bit pissed off and frustrated....But just know this is my fault and no one elses. I cannot and will not blame anyone for this. They are not black balling me or what ever you would call it. Everything done so far has been by the book and they are trying to help me.

Something funny happened on friday. I went to see that Captain who is in charge of the PT program, anyway she was reviewing some paperwork and mentioned that she wanted to schedule me for all sorts of classes abotu managing my weight and eating healthy etc. I have been to them all before. Anyway I looked her straight in the eye and asked "Why Bother?" "I mean you are going to kick me out anyway, why bother wasting the goverments time and money?" That wasn't well received....and I was scheduled for the classes anyway...

So it has finally come to pass.... I have been given the ultimatem....

I have 3 options

A-- I can get out in the next 30-60 days

B-- I can get out in Aug 07 during the 07 rollback

C-- I can get out between now and sometime soon but risk losing a stripe...

basically I am being forced out....

After much deliberation, I decided to go with option C. So that I could explore all my options including getting a medical discharge. But it is looking like I will be a E-4 soon though :/
