The Tears

This just gets me, the tears welling in his eyes as he rockets through town are just too much. I laughed my ass off.

I needed it.

Sergeant's exam didn't go as well as I'd hoped. There stand about 200 bodies between myself and stripes. I am not sure what I did wrong. I did quite well on the oral portion, but somehow scored below average on the written. There will be a lot of hiring from this list, and many of those who tested well have bad things in their work history. Regardless, no stripes for me till 2013 or so.

Ironically, and also good for my mental health; the contract for the game company is ready for signing.

Balance in all things, I suppose. Perhaps I will get promoted at the same time my first novel is being published.


  1. I'm sorry for the test results, but I have every confidence you'll make it. Meanwhile, keep pushing the writing.

  2. My thanks, Mark. And I'm feeling pretty good on the whole. I actually laughed a lot today.

    Motivational, knowing I need to write for those little extras.
