...And Crustice For All

DJ / 181 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 think!

In other news, our future is as muddy as ever. I don't know when I am retiring, Kelley doesn't know if she is staying at her job long term, I don't know if I am getting a promotion that will make us move, etc. etc. Someday things will be settled, but that day is not today.

    I'm being promoted!
    After months of waiting, I found out a week ago that I am indeed being promoted to the rank of Senior Master Sergeant (SMSgt). This is a big deal in the Air Force because only 2% of the Enlisted force is allowed to be at that rank at any one time. It is probably the hardest rank to make. The promotion rate was only 11% across the Air Force, and only 10% in my career field. I am super stoked about this, even if it does mean we are probably going to move as a result, to either the Washington DC area or the Denver area. I promoted to Master Sergeant almost exactly 5 years ago and will actually put on the new rank in about 6 months. This means at least 3 more years in the military and perhaps as many as 5, and more if I make the final rank, Chief Master Sergeant. These are exciting times for sure!

    Promotion news soon
    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't get promoted, I only have 3 left at most. If I do get promoted, I have 5. I like the area, I like my unit, Kelley likes her job, so moving will be hard, but I am sure we could make the best of it. We're going on a cruise soon with my sister Lori and her husband James to celebrate Kelley's 40th birthday. We'll see if we're celebrating anything else as well.

    On a side note, my pet project website, The Awesome Theory, is finally starting to get back off the ground, a development I am pretty excited about. Use the link at the top or bottom of every page here to go read more about that if you are interested.

    New Year New Challenges
    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.

    I find out about my promotion in March, then we go on a cruise with Lori, James, Oliver, and Lucy, then if I did get promoted, we'll find out where we are moving to later in the year. Then later in the year we'll actually move. Perhaps around then we'll take a vacation to see friends in Hawaii. It is going to be a big year and I am ready for it!
