So it's been a while.

Hello internet!
I haven't done anything with this blog in a long, long time! Figured I'd give it another shot and kind of show/explain why I haven't been doing anything on here. It wasn't long after I got setup in my apartment that I had to deploy to Kyrgyzstan. It wasn't as bad as many deployments, but it was still a lot of work and very long hours! Needless to say I'm glad it's over with. Since I've been back I've kind of bounced around from gaming to spending time with my girlfriend. Finding a balance can be hard to do. All in all a good time.

Now on to what I've really taken an interest in as of lately (the past 4 months or so) flying helicopters! It's pretty damn challenging, but it's also very rewarding when you get things right. At this point I have about 14 hours. I still have a long ways to go. 40 hours are needed for a private license. Although, typically more hours are needed to get your skills in line. Everyone is different. Some take 40 hours others may take 60 or more hours before they are ready for their checkride. Did a little flying today without the doors. Got to love Spring. Here are a couple pics from the cart!

So is it odd...

That a single 23 year old is watching wall-e? Also I'm not going to have internet in my apartment until the 7 of January. So in the mean time I've been watching old movies and attending to this whole social life thing. When I do get online again I'll upload some more screen shots of spaceengine that I've been taking. I can't even get on steam to play my games :( Sense I've been kind of disconnect sort of speak, what games would you fine people recommend?

Timing. Mine is terrible

So I got moved into my new apartment and got everything for the most part setup and ready go to. Only problem is that its Christmas eve and I don't have internet yet. Ugh it sucks using my phone for everything, which by the way is having some kind of charging issue. Whenever I use the web browser, the phone crashes. Unless I keep it plugged in. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel! For New Years a whole gang of us are going up to Atlantic City. Bars, strip clubs, casinos, and hotel rooms! Cannot freaking wait! I'm sure I'll go broke in the process but it'll be worth it lol.

About the background

If anyone is wondering about the background it's from an awesome free simulator Space Engine.  It can be downloaded here Best experienced first hand, some breath taking views.


Starting to get addicted to Skyrim all over again.  I decided to roll a Conjuration character in heavy armor.  I'm absolutely loving it!  I just got the Dead Thrall spell, that's how I got the permanent Dremora bros in the picture.  I hear that Master Vampire or Master Necromancers are the best ones to use though because they can summon their own Atronachs.  So I can't wait to come across one, it'll be so overpowered.  Not to mention having a companion on top of all that.

Home is where the hard drive is.

Typing this from my cell phone which is no easy task sometimes. I've been in Mississippi for the past week handling business so I haven't been able to update anything. I made the mistake of not bringing any real warm clothes with me because I figured it'd be nice and warm in the south even in December. So needless to say I've been freezing my ass off since I got here, haha. Can't wait until I can get home and load up the Battlefield or at the very least get back to my comfy computer chair! My friend who is down here with me is in the same boat. He's typically my gunner in BF3 (not the gunner from the video I posted a week ago). I don't have any footage captured of our gameplay yet bit that'll change soon after I get back and settled. I just wanted to get the last video up to help myself out honestly. Looking for what mistakes I made and hopefully to get some feedback from others. The video itself has gotten a few views and a couple likes which is good, but I would like some comments on it because I'm sure other people will notice stuff I was completely oblivious too haha. Would love to hear from you guys. Feel free to ask me questions about BF3/other games or even something you'd like to know about me.
