Well, I’m seeing Xmen again with my friend I thought was leaving today. Sometimes life moves in those funny odd directions. That’s why it’s so important to be grateful for what you have – then you are peaceful no matter what. When you get extra, then it’s much more. When you have less, no big deal. I’m grateful my friend is here today but I know he will be leaving tomorrow. Nothing has really changed except for my outlook. I have so many things to write tomorrow but for now I’m going to enjoy having my friend here. There’s nothing better than this moment right now.


Having someone leave out of your life is rough and there’s no right time for it. Tomorrow my closest friend leaves to move up to Alaska. Despite having only met him last month it’s difficult to imagine what life is going to be like without him here. When somebody occupies a huge part of your life it’s difficult to let them go. We had a lot of good times and I’m glad I got to know him.

I think that sometimes people are just meant to pass through your life. They’re not meant to stay there and if you knew everyone in your life was going to stay forever, you wouldn’t appreciate them. So although it sucks that he’s leaving, I’m appreciative of having met him.

We spent way too many hours killing Nazi zombies, driving to the beach, and getting off base. I’ll definitely miss him. Here are some pictures from the past month:
