(no subject)

okay I have fallen behind on the writing. Between a little bit of writers block and lot of headache due to being sick, I did not get as much done over the past few days as I would have liked. I have a lot of catching up to do but I have not given up. It is my goal to turn over 11000 words by this weekend. As I am at 3800 words right now I dont think thats impossible.

I missed Toms party which I feel a little guilty about as I seem to never go to his parties. Part of that is laziness on my part. This time however I was recovering from a sinus infection bad enough to keep me out of work for three days. I just did not want to be at a smoke filled party with a bunch of people. I decided to stay near home and run my game instead.

I also have begun to feel that pressure in my head for a change. I want to change something in my life. From time to time I get this feeling and I sometimes call it my gypsy instinct. I want a change of venue or job or location. Usually when I eget this feeling I resist it untill it passes. I cant afford to be quitting my job right now nor moving so not much point in it, but I can still feel the pressure in my mind to do so.

I have also not been emailing my usual suspects to talk. I dont im as much either. I have spoken to people around me but I have spent much time trying to communicate with my homies in the atl or raliegh. I am not sure why this is. I think part of it is feeling like I may be a bit of pest at times. I miss some people terribly and I wish I could see them again soon.

well back to the grindstone for me.

nice to know that the standards in recruiting are still high as ever.

Army Recruiters Accused of Misleading Students to Get Them to Enlist
Colonel Says Incidents Are the Exception, Not the Rule
Nov. 3, 2006 — - An ABC News undercover investigation showed Army recruiters telling students that the war in Iraq was over, in an effort to get them to enlist.

ABC News and New York affiliate WABC equipped students with hidden video cameras before they visited 10 Army recruitment offices in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

"Nobody is going over to Iraq anymore?" one student asks a recruiter.

"No, we're bringing people back," he replies.

"We're not at war. War ended a long time ago," another recruiter says.
