Another question...

So I'm running low of interesting topics to write about.

Was just wondering if you guys had anything you wanted to hear my take on?

Anything at all, nothing is off limits.  Let's hear it.


I love you Mom...


  1. You have changed, to say the least. What is your life like now that your are a civilian again? Night sweats, nightmares, short tempered...the PTSD stuff. I pray that you don't and that you are dealing well.

  2. Oh! And do you ever see a time in your life that you might become a Cubs fan?

  3. where you'd like to live if the job was available there geographically.

    and what we should do now in Afghanistan. or what we shoulda done.

    Love your writing!

  4. Do you have a desire to return to Afghanistan?

    Where do you see yourself in ten years? twenty years?

    Have you considered teaching as a profession?

    How did your visit with your dad go this week? How do you feel your life would have been different, had he been 'with you' growing up?

    Write an acceptance speech for your nomination on any level of Political victory.

    Who is your best friend and why?

    If you could meet anyone in this world (alive), who would it be and why?

    Give me a few minutes to think about this and I will come up with more...this just spilled from the top of my head. :)


  5. Have you heard of this Website - Vantage Point. You might like to submit an "opinion". Alex Horton is a part of did you eat more than pizza last week? Did you go for a walk around the block?.....Looking forward to reading your replies to all the submitted questions.
