So I went back looking at some of previous posts here and realized they're pretty sparse, rushed and have almost no details



So I'll try to kind of lay things out clearly here.

2014....year of the horse....(well christmas was awesome and got to spend more time with my family and horses in the past 2 months than I have in the past 4 years.) well the first day started out right haha. I was home and went on a new years trail ride with my mom, my dad (yay! I think he's been on a horse all of 2 times the past 4 years haha) my lovely surrogate mother type trainer (more like best friend than trainer now...havent had a lesson in like 7 years) and her hubby who is also like an uncle haha.

Had some quality riding time with my friend, even got Josie out and gave a litle girl who ADORES her, a lesson.

Then I came back to the rock on the 4th. Managed to get back here without keys (turns out I left them in my old carhartt along with some shotgun shells haha. Definitely sounds like me)
And without clothes. The airport had told us they opened at 0530, and my flight was at 0600. When we got there at 0530 they quite rudely informed us that the flight was already closed. I was immediately angry and argued with them about misinforming us, how I HAD to be back that day because it was my last day of leave etc.

They were super unhelpful and reluctantly printed out my boarding passes, but said they would not "under any circumstances check my bag" so I got to island without any clothes. Yeah.

But made the best of it, my mom mailed my clothes to me (which cost an arm and leg but anyways), and my first week back at work wasn't actually too bad. I was in class in the tunnel all week, doing a class I've taken 3 other times already

Mom found my keys, and I should be getting them today, and I'm going to go see the new Hercules movie (with a decidedly gorgeous man starring it)

So I think things are finally (cross my fingers) getting back on track and back to normal since everything got so out of whack when my grandfather passed in November.

So future wise........

I am SUPPOSED to be PCSing march 10....97% sure that will not be happening since I have NO orders and with the drawdowns and all. Yeah.

So I'll be here until Feb 22 of next year...

There is POTENTIAL though, that I could be out early. They have the new Voluntary Early Separation (extension of the involuntary separation) so if I had a job lined up back home I could potentially get out Feb 22 of this year or any time after that.

So now the obstacle is to find a good part time (or full time) job close to Amarillo or Dallas to then maybe get my GI bill going and go to school.

I'm leaning towards police department, or maybe a contractor job doing the job the army paid $500,000 to train me on, for now. But We'll see.

And most importantly GET OUT OF THE ARMY haha.

I mean, I love the army. I love my bros and sisters in the army, I love my country, I love serving....but I hate the BS the army is dishing out on a silver platter now so its no longer worth the stress and headache.

But. To end this on a better note than "i hate the army"

Finished kitty cat drawing! Bahahahaha

You're about at the same place with the Army that I was, 35 years ago....

I was actually stupid enough to re-enlist for a different MOS....two weeks after I re-enlisted they told me the school I re-enlisted for had been closed for the next three years in order to train foreign students so I'd get the school on the tail end of my enlistment.

I filed for, and got, a breach of contract...that's a long story but after an additional 5 months I got my honorable discharge....

As far as flying....the terrorist won and now we're held hostage by the TSA...and the airlines themselves....

What the hay....I mean, you don't really need many cloths on the Rock do you? Just a grass skirt right and a lea right?

So anywho. Got to thinking today about what im going to do outside of the army. I already know im going to go to WTAMU for Vet tech, but theres no guarantee there'll be any job openings down the line.

Then I got to thinking how theres only one farrier in town, and thought about my farrier now who worked mirackes with Josie....and so I thiyght maybe farrier school. Definitely wouldnt do it full time because I would break myself, but my horses, and maybe some friends when I got more comfortable/expetienced....
Which led to equissage....Also thanks to Josie lol. Theres NO equissage where I live so theredbe no competition and again, it would nt be full time either.

So ill use my trusty GI bill for my vet stuff, and maybe get tne school scholarships or use my truck money for the farrier/equissage classes :) just a thought for now haha.

If I could get away with it I would take the 4 weeks of leave I would need and go take the equissage class and then be like "oh hayy army. I have a job lined up so lemme the heck out" buahahahaha

A vet tech would be good....but have you ever thought about doing human tech? I mean, if you open a news paper, there's a couple of pages of adds looking for nurses and medical type people..... Might be more opportunity to make a lot of money in the medical field......

I'd suggest trying to find a field that's in high demand, and has a long career you can get old doing it.....

I think you could do okay if you're a good farrier, but it's very hard work, often in less than perfect weather, and you have to stay busy to make real money....
