In lieu of the US Government not fixing my eyes alongside of feeding and educating me, I will instead be having lasers shot into them on the 15th. Hoorah lasers.

Congrats ECH! That's awesome.

Also found a nifty website chock-full of public domain books for download in any format your heart desires. Going to make my way through a lot of older stuff on my quest to be moderately well read.

For anyone curious, here's the site mentioned above:

3 weeks and change after being back I sent out emails /gchat invites to the guys from my old division as well as a few I was in seps with. Have chatted with a few of them, and in an unexpected way it's helped. Makes it real I suppose.

It could've very well been caused by the above, but I woke up from dreaming about the fucking cadence the other morning. I dread when I wake up from dreaming about rev, though that'll probably be me jumping out of my bed in sheer panic.

This Thurs marks 4 weeks since I flew home. I'd say I'm pretty much adjusted back to civilian life, as douchey as that sounds. I'm also pretty much out of the "wah the Navy doesn't want me wah" funk. Granted I'm still in a this town is shit and I can't fucking handle the imposing jesus all the fucking time funk, but eh, I'll be out and moved on early 2016
 I have a consultation for lasik on Tues, which is my final consolation for it not working out, especially since the government fixing my eyes was one of the many reasons why I joined in the first place.

I'm incredibly homesick for Colorado. Unfortunately I feel I have to be closer to my parents for the next few critical years until their long term health is known. I just wish they weren't so damned rooted in a place where I'm miserable. The culture here is fucked and it's killing me. Can't handle the anti-intellectual backasswards bullshit that happens in this town.

And don't even get me fucking started on this rebel flag nonsense. Christ I fucking hate Tennessee. Yet here I'm living until at least March or even a few years from now, if I stayed in state to finish out the degree versus moving to NC and waiting a year for in state tuition.

I bought ready player one in the Chicago airport before my flights back from basic. Binged it in 2 days, something that hasn't happened with a book since Snowcrash.

Reading meditations by Marcus Aurelius currently. I had planned to read it in boot (friend had sent me it printed off in a letter), but that didn't really pan out as intended. Also found a nifty website chock-full of public domain books for download in any format your heart desires. Going to make my way through a lot of older stuff on my quest to be moderately well read.

I'll also add an obligatory plug for the foundation series by asimov. Finished it a few months ago, easily secured itself a place in my top 5 of all time. Can't recommend enough.

I tried to finish mists of avalon again, but goddammit do I loathe Guinevere chapters. Can't finish that book . it's more of a feat than cryptonomicon was. Dunno when I'll ever go back to it.

I'm waiting to see the impact this has on their new-ish plant in Chattanooga, that's brought about a lot of jobs to an area that sorely needed it.

Why didn't you just get path of exile. 
Same feel
More complex
Nice company owns it.

I played it in beta. Felt like sacred but still fell short.

I was horribly addicted to d2 in high school. I blame my love for the Amazon class as the primary reason. Dh has been close enough for the itch to be scratched.

I have consultation for lasik on Tuesday. If I'm a candidate, I'm pulling the trigger and getting this shit done. It'll mean an extra month or two living in the hated hometown, but the trade off of being able to see upon waking will be worth it.

Im pretty sure I used this first

So that's why I never click that new replies to your posts link.

It's been 3 hours and I've barely scratched the surface. Fucking hell. I cant keep up with you guys.

I fell back down the rabbit hole again after  languishing from separation out of basic, but holy shit is season 4 fun. This is the game they should've released. Highly recommemd giving it another go if none of you have.

In retrospect, an explanation on this shitfit I threw. Not that it's an excuse, but eh, I just looked at it for the first time in a year and a half, and that was obviously uncalled for on my part. Someone dug this up from the bowels, so why not. I was in a groove too before things devolved.

I was drunk posting on my phone. I had a muse. I wrongly thought paes was trying to derail my shit, as some people around here for the 8 or so years I've read pd have historically been wont to do. I always close out all of my new thread posts here with Or Kill Me, and intoxicated I assumed the entirety of the or kill me readership that'd seen my Shangri posts knew such. Entitled drunk delusion.

I threw something up in a post that was the cruelest and most vitriolic thing I could come up with while intoxicated. I posted it. Then realized I was being dickish and that it wasn't an affront and I should delete my drunken rage, which was my first reply, because I was drunk. I did so. At the same time I was deleting it paes was quoting it and it was out. I threw out a snip about the new content because my muse had clearly been derailed, even if it was my own misinterpretation of a non-threadjacking.

In closing, sorry I had a shitfit your general direction with no explanation or justification over a year and a  half ago paes.

Shit, dude, that is awful. I'm sorry. :sad: If it's any consolation, I think that 28 is a perfectly fine age to start something new.

It's the living with my parents in this shitty shitty town that's so bad. I started a new job with my old company telecommuting and I'll be able to get back on my feet from it in a few months. Just feels like such a waste of my life the past year.

Plus the whole getting psyched up and going through the initial bullshit and being there. Being in. Having the dress uniforms because of how far into basic I was. And now it's all for nothing.

You can't get shit for veteran preference with 43 days Active duty. Sucks.

Yeah, but there's a better than zero chance that I will, too.

Not me.  I'm full of rainbows and fucking unicorns.
