I have decided that when I get back to the US after this deployment I am going to go on one of those things called "vacations." I have never spent time in DC, I think I may try to stay up there for a week and see the sights. Then I think I may go on one those cruise ship things, you know the boat that has windows and even a pool on it. I have never really done that before and why not go.
In case you are wondering, I am back in Iraq.
I gave the gouge to my Marines on the do's and don'ts for leave. The stuff "they" don't tell you and would be helpful to know.
I still have not smoked a cigarette since the first week in February.
I have paid off almost all of my revolving credit.
And I slapped myself in the face after not finding the holy grail of happiness. It wasn't spiritual but it didn't need to be.
