i don't think anyone's been bothered with reading this junk anymore, simply because i haven't been consistent at all with updating this space.. it's not like when i was in pensacola, where blogging plays a big part since it is pretty much my only avenue of updating all those at home about what's been going on here. life's pretty hectic here. but i'm much happier than i was while working in singapore. i'm glad we actually get treated like human beings.. it is also rather cool returning home each day, to an apartment that you furnished and 'designed' from scratch. my very own bachelor pad.. all i need now is to bring bachelorettes in from time to time.. haha.. i kid.. or am i?...

i have arrived safely in arizona.. in a town just a tad west of Phoenix, called Goodyear.. just in case any of you wants to mail me..

2100 North 145th Ave Apt 2130
Goodyear, Arizona 85395

the weather here is hot as heck.. hovering in the low-mid 40s in the afternoon, then falling to about 30ish at night.. i'm downing bottles of water like a thirsty whale. i'll put up pictures once the internet in my apartment comes 'online'.. meanwhile, i'll just have to use the computer in the community lounge.. or take my laptop to the pool area where there's free wifi.. i'm staying at Adiamo Palm Valley, a nice gated community about a 10 mins drive from work.. similar to one of them condos you find in singapore.. all's ok so far.. a little bit of heartache after buying my car.. a 2005 nissan xterra.. but it's all good.. really love that suv.. and it can't be found in singapore.. so.. extra sweet.. aiight.. that's all for now..

in 56 days, i shall be embarking on another phase of my life. onward to the pc2 detachment all the way in arizona. nope, it's not gonna be the same as in pensacola but i'm sure it's gonna be way better than present. there are many things that i am reluctant to leave behind though, mainly my family and friends. i've kinda settled down back home but i guess it's time i'm uprooted again and planted at another plot.

apart from that, nothing much has been going on in my life. i've come to realise that i'm not doing very much with it. my passion for scuba diving took a backseat ever since my return to the country. nope, i haven't lost the love for being able to breathe underwater and to be able to explore this underwater realm that we understand so little about. it's just that big boy responsibilities have kept me terrastrial for a while. there isn't going to be very much scuba at all in arizona and i'm a little perturbed. gosh how i miss the way the hair on the back of my neck stands when a bullshark pops out from beyond the murky curtain, or how my heart raced as mike and i decended into the dark wreck in search of new adventures and discoveries, 10miles off shore, at night. that was living life.

these days, i seem to spend more time at work than at home. something that i've always dreaded. something that a younger me would never allow. to allow work to take over my life. so what if fighter flying is what i do? i used to enjoy it, even look forward to it. but that was a while ago. in another world, with the US Navy.

no one really gets satisfied with his own life is there?

56 days. so near, yet distant.

Good morning starshine, the earth says hello
you twinkle above us, we twinkle below
good morning starshine, you lead us along
my love and me
as we sing our
early morning singing song

as my 23th year comes round the corner, i've realised that.. i'm old.. a birthday has become just another statistic to me.. i miss how i used to look forward to my birthday each year.. but that doesn't mean i do not have a wish list..

1) to ORD.
2) swap my car for a golf gti
3) or an audi r8
4) relive my time in pensacola
5) scuba dive the world
6) twice
7) spend more time with my friends and family
8) 5 day weekends and 2 day work weeks
9) to ORD. oh wait. did i say that just now? well just to be sure.. to ORD.
10) to find her.

impossible i know but hey.. a man can always dream.

now that i officially have no life, i shall start with this again.. yes yes.. how many times have i said that 'it's been a while' etc etc.. updates.. i'm still an osprey warrior, progress has still been slow.. nothing much to get excited about these days.. just a whole bunch of 'working for the weekend' bullshit.. come to think of it, even my weekends are weak!

i really wanted to write something here.. but i can't. there is nothing worth mentioning. i find that scary. and sad. i've kinda become 2 dimensional. gulp. holy shit.
