No promotion

DJ / 104 Days Ago

The Air Force saw fit to not promote me to Senior Master Sergeant this year (not a huge surprise, honestly - it is a hard rank to make). Thus, we get to stay at Langley Air Force Base for a while longer. The Air Force will not move us again unless I end up getting promoted next year or the year after. The decision now is whether to retire or not, but as long as Kelley is happy enough at her job here, I'll stay in.

There are still challenges, to be sure, but we'll face them and overcome them one at a time. I plan on starting my Master's Degree in November. That will be a big change and a big challenge. I want to be ready for what comes after the military, no matter when that happens to be.

    I will update this blog as warranted. Last update was 15 Oct 2017.

    After a long road of fits and starts, I finally underwent PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), a procedure to fix my vision. I have had bad eyesight since grade school, got glasses in 2nd or 3rd grade but never wore them

    DJ traveled to Andrews AFB and stayed there a week to receive and recover from PRK eye surgery. Despite the scary stories of pain and discomfort, it wasn't that bad at all.

    My new pizza blog site, ...And Crustice For All, is now live! The link can be found at the top and bottom of every Flees.net page. This site is a part of my eventual resume package, to show that I am capable of designing and running multiple different types of sites. Next up is Derp Derp Code, a blog site that will be about programming and tech stuff. I am pretty excited to finally be making more progress on these sites. They have been on my to do list for years now. Please let me know what you think!

    In other news, our future is as muddy as ever. I don't know when I am retiring, Kelley doesn't know if she is staying at her job long term, I don't know if I am getting a promotion that will make us move, etc. etc. Someday things will be settled, but that day is not today.

    Lots of updates since I last made a post about website updates. I finished the new layout across the site and added some behind the scenes functionality and pages. I added top 10 lists, though the public link for that is not posted yet, but will be in a matter of days. I upgraded to php 7.0 on th
