Promotion news soon | DJ | 7 Days Ago


We're probably around 11-12 days until I find out if I am getting promoted and having my life turned upside down again in a few short months. That is the big downside of Air Force promotions - you have to wait so long to find out about them. That long build up increases the emotional stakes and makes the joy that much more intense if you make it, but also the crushing disappointment is more acute when you don't.

Three days ago was my 21 year anniversary with the Air Force. If I don'

New Year New Challenges | DJ | 53 Days Ago


Another year has come and gone. 2017 was an interesting year - it alternated between frustrating and challenging and pretty sweet. It had some tough times and some great times. Overall, though, it was way better than 2016! 2016 was our toughest year ever. This was kind of a rebound year. It got us back on track. It should be viewed as the springboard that will help make 2018 be the best year yet! We are so blessed and we have some big events ahead of us this year.

Flees.net has been updated! | DJ | 60 Days Ago


The Timeline page is active! It still needs to be updated with many of the events in our lives, but it is a start and I really like how the page turned out. The next public available item I'll be working on is TV show tracker. Not that I think anyone cares that much what we are watching - it is more for our reference, but why not let people see it, right?

A Post Console World | DJ | 60 Days Ago


First, time for a little bit of history. I've been an avid gamer for many years and I was about to retell the first few decades of this story until I realized I had already wrote a blog around 12 years ago telling my video game story up until that point. Much has changed since then. I got a Wii and a PS3. Both got hit by a lightning storm and I got them replaced, though I was able to repair the PS3, so I had two of them. I went to Kore

Certain Uncertainty | DJ | 105 Days Ago


It seems that lately the only we know about our future is that we don't know much about our future. Everything seems to hinge on whether I get promoted next year, which I will find out about in early March. Based on my last evaluation, the promotion seems like nearly a sure thing, but you never know. I take my test on Dec 1st, then I get to just wait 3 months to find out. If I make the promotion, it is almost certain that Kelley and I will move, and more than likely to the DC/Baltimore area. Thi

My PRK Journey (so far) | DJ | 142 Days Ago


I will update this blog as warranted. Last update was 25 Dec 2017.

After a long road of fits and starts, I finally underwent PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), a procedure to fix my vision. I have had bad eyesight since grade school, got glasses in 2nd or 3rd grade but never wore them except when I had to see the chalkboard, and got contacts between 6th and 7th grade. The Air Force first started offering vision correction in the mid-2000s, so I started the process around 2006 or 2

...And Crustice For All | DJ | 158 Days Ago


My new pizza blog site, ...And Crustice For All, is now live! The link can be found at the top and bottom of every Flees.net page. This site is a part of my eventual resume package, to show that I am capable of designing and running multiple different types of sites. Next up is Derp Derp Code, a blog site that will be about programming and tech stuff. I am pretty excited to finally be making more progress on these sites. They have been on my to do list for years now. Please let me know what you

Job Searching | Kelley | 174 Days Ago


I talk about my current job situation a lot. It has not been a great experience. I have hope that there is something else out there that will be a better fit for me. It is scary to look at jobs nation-wide. I do not want to move for a job unless I know it is a match. I will continue at my current job and make the best of the situation as I continue to search.

Flees.net has been updated! | DJ | 181 Days Ago


Lots of updates since I last made a post about website updates. I finished the new layout across the site and added some behind the scenes functionality and pages. I added top 10 lists, though the public link for that is not posted yet, but will be in a matter of days. I upgraded to php 7.0 on the server, which will allow me to make the site more secure, but a side effect is that it totally broke the Awesome Theory. So, I changed the home page of that site to be just a news feed for now unti

No promotion | DJ | 230 Days Ago


The Air Force saw fit to not promote me to Senior Master Sergeant this year (not a huge surprise, honestly - it is a hard rank to make). Thus, we get to stay at Langley Air Force Base for a while longer. The Air Force will not move us again unless I end up getting promoted next year or the year after. The decision now is whether to retire or not, but as long as Kelley is happy enough at her job here, I'll stay in.

There are still challenges, to be sure, but we'll face them and over
