Ok so it's been about a year and a half or a little longer so let's play catch up.. What has been happening in my life.. First thing I moved back to Utah from Virginia and I was really sad to leave but also really excited because I got to spend a lot of time with my family. Especially my niece and nephews and they are the cutest little kids ever. I started working at Paradise Bakery and it was fun for awhile but then I left there and got a job at a place called Normandie Bakery and I loved what I was doing there but the lady that owned the place was a real witch and I hated working for her but I loved the people I worked with so I stuck it out for a while. I also started working at the movie theater in Salt Lake and was a manager there.. It was just a lot of fun.. Well then I decided that I wanted to do something different and well something more so I did a bunch of research and went in to a National Guard recruiting station one day and met with a recruiter and guess what a little while later I joined the United States Army. I signed through the National Guard but they have a program called Active First and that is what I did. Basically I am regular Army for 3 years and then I can either go back to National Guard or extend my active duty.. So in 3 years I will let you know what I decided to do. I quit my jobs.. Quitting the Bakery was my favorite cause she well is a super witch and I totally got to walk out on her during the Christmas season which sucks for her and it was awesome. I left for Basic in January to Ft. Jackson, SC. I expected it to totally suck and be horrible and awful and hard.. It wasn't any of those things.. I mean it had pretty sucky moment and and it was a little bit hard sometimes but I didn't get yelled at like I expected and well it just wasn't like I expected. It is a little bit funny to talk about especially with my brother, Mike, cause his was way harder than mine but then again he did go like 12 years ago. After basic I headed to Ft. Eustis, VA for AIT where I learned how to be a Blackhawk Helicopter Mechanic. It is pretty freakin awesome and I loved it. I learned so much cool stuff. Plus it makes me feel pretty bad ass. I had awesome instructors and it was an awesome time. I mean being at the company wasn't always cool but I met awesome people and learned awesome things. WOW I just used awesome about a million times. But I am so excited about all of this stuff. Now I am going to GERMANY. I leave August 7th to head over there and I am so excited. That is my life in a nutshell up till now and I am going to try and keep up the best I can..
