I only ever truely realised how soon ORD was when i was invited to a ORD function this thursday. Minus my off leave and weekends..i have 35 workdays left. Due to a new stupid rule i can’t plan all my off and leave in the last month so it’ll have to be spread out between now and november.
its also got me reflecting much about my army days and what i wanna do in the future. Before i came to army i had quite a few goals. self improvement – pick up some skills, a veritable egg basket by the time i leave, and hmm well not much else. Sadly those goals have not been fulfilled. The egg basket stands at $650 and the skills; well don’t come to me with your car. true to my media whore nature…my collections of movies and music have increased by the terabyte.
that said though ..my ns life has been somewhat more or less fulfilling. yes there have been extremely hairy patches…but it hasn’t been as bad as i thought it’d be. Surprisngly though ….if you were to ask me which part i would miss most, it wouldn’t be the current period: slack workload, jc colleagues, stay out. I miss the NS of a year ago, the LRI period, the hokkien ping people, the stay in sessions. I feel like i can leave now without any attachements. I’m ready to be taken, take me!
Whats next in store? half a year of part time work, and not much else i expect other then what i’m doing. when you fail to plan you plan to fail. but when you don’t follow the plan why plan at all?
