Blood, Progress, and Wedding Dresses?

Today my wife and I had to drive a friend to a nearby college; the one I use to attend. While waiting for him I noticed the Red Cross was doing blood donations, so I decided to donate. I usually like to donate as soon as they let me after their “waiting period” before you can donate again, but I don’t go out of my way to do it, I just do it when I run into the donation events randomly like this. Of course someone had to mention that I was incredibly small and was surprised I didn’t pass out, but I get that a lot haha.  Unfortunately they couldn’t get the blood flow started so they had to mess around with the needle, which wasn’t the most welcoming feeling in the world, but oh well. We also went to a bridal shop today, where my wife tried on wedding dresses. Although we are already married, we’re still planning on having a bigger ceremony with family and friends. We just decided it would be better to get legalities out-of-the-way before basic.  My reaction to most of the dresses were “I liked the first one more” because contrary to what we were told, the first one she tried on was past our budget, which we ended up picking. We figure the dress is worth the extra money.

The One

In other news my working out has been yielding some more results as I’m getting closer to the PT requirements I am required to meet by the end of basic, so that’s good news for me. So its been the same, old same old: trying to get in shape, helping out around the house, and living life in a small town of “Nowhere”, New York.

Now as for my thoughts on Air Force matters, I still cant wait to find out what language I get.  I want one that will put me in a useful position, not a language that will be just have me tanslating stuff that will never be of much use outside of my job. I guess it doesn’t really matter as it all pays the same, however being able to feel like I’m actually doing something important would be nice.  Comments and likes would be greatly appreciated as well as feedback. Thanks for reading.
