Promotion news soon

DJ / 273 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'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.

    School sucks
    If you look around this site, it becomes clear that over the last 6 to 9 months updates have waned. Pictures of the month are behind, blogs and news posts are infrequent, and no features have been added. I started my Master's Degree program just after Thanksgiving last year and while the first class was cake, since then it has been a real drag. Kelley started her own Master's Degree program in May and that has made both of our lives seriously school-focused since.

    We about to hit our Thanksgiving break (9 days, yes!) and then start a new class. Also, we'll get 3 weeks off for Christmas. I hope to use this time to get things done around the house and recalibrate my life to be more productive even when I am in school. I have other website projects besides this one and I want to make consistent progress - I can't put it all aside during school because I still have 2 years left! I look forward to accomplishing more soon.

The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. - Samuel 16:7 NIV
