Wow, alot has gone on since I returned home from Iraq. I know I owe everyone stories about my last month or so in Iraq and I will get to them soon. I am saving all those stories for boring rainy days :) Right now I am in NC with a friend. She asked me to go to a wedding with her and like a good friend I accepted. Here is my mini vacation within my vacation.
Since arriving home, it has been a busy couple of weeks. I bought a car, moved into my apartment, seen my "X", ran into alot of old friends, and I have partied alot. The car was a pain in my ass to get. My credit is still shitty and I didnt get what I wanted, but I got a nice car still. I wound up buying my sister's car off of her which is a 2005 Chevy Cavalier. SIe works for a dealership and she did everything she could to get me into what I wanted. But I am happy with the Cavalier. As for the apartment, myself, Matt and Garrett found a 5 bedroom apartment in town close to the college for a little over a grand a month. That is very good for living in the Poconos. Some of the rooms still need to be painted, but it works for me. I started moving in this past week, the other two are moving in after this weekend.
As for my "X", boy has shit changed. I can honestly say I do not know her anymore. The woman I loved is not the one I "met" when I got home. It's all good cuz it makes it easier getting over her. I have talked with her new man, and he is a nice guy. I also have no intentions on trying to get her back and he understands and respects that. I know I had said while in Iraq I wanted to know what happened, but seeing her now and realizing I do not know her, I dont need an explanation. She has already gave me the rings back and as soon as I get the Internet set up in the new apartment, they are going on Ebay. If I thought their was a chance we would get back together I would keep them but their isnt a chance in hell. So, they are going up for auction cuz I can not with any real sense give those rings to another woman.
Well, its time to go get ready for the wedding, see you all later.
