Say ya to da UP, eh!

So tonight my roommates and I were talking about pitching a tent in our living room and it reminded me of the good old fort days. So I figured that I should pay a visit to our long forgotten blog. It's kind of sad that they're over. I really hope everyone is doing well. Life up here is amazing and beautiful. I kind of never ever want to leave. I always knew that I never really belonged in the city and living in da Yoop has definitely made me realize how very true this is. I belong in nature. I hope you guys are also finding out where you belong in life and figuring things out.

One thing I have to say is this: People really do say "eh" on a regular basis up here. It's not just some myth. It really happens. Actually they kind of vary it sometimes between "eh", "ey", or "hey". Many sentences are ended with one of these variations, especially for Yooper natives.
I just thought you guys should know that.

I hope you all are gushing with love and blessings and amazingness,

Been a Long Time

Seems like life is moving by so so fast! It feels like years have passed since we started this blog. Since then we have had many trials and many feats. Angela is gone to school (miss you Ang, can't wait to see you next weekend!!!) Cecelia is getting married in 9 days (Yay!), and Jen and I have painted a wall in our new apartment (which looks amazing so far). But not one of us has written in this blog.

As I sit here, on a day off (of 2 pre-weekend days) I look at other blogs and wonder "why is ours so out of date?" Just because we have gone separate ways, that doesn't give an excuse for separating from the Fort. Each one of us has our own fort, but we don't have to forget where we started.

So, to bring back The Great Fort Rebellion, I say "Cheers!"

Moving Away

I can not believe I only have two weeks before I move. Time flies so fast. I will definitely miss my family and friends, but I'm kind of excited for what the future holds. This next year will be filled with hard work and I'm incredibly nervous and scared about moving up north by myself, but I'm hoping that it will be a positive sort of adventure. I've really enjoyed it here and I'm really going to miss everyone.

Well, today is the 2nd to last day of May, and I haven't posted in 3 weeks! It's been pretty crazy since I got home from Texas, and I haven't felt much like computing. On another note, I've been trying to use less of the internet and watch less tv. It seems that using the computer less has actually helped me to watch more tv, because I do that in its place. However, I really don't watch tv a lot more because I am working basically 2 jobs every day. By the way, having 3 jobs is not always what it seems! Anyway. My trip to Texas was awesome, and I wanted to stay there, but it obviously wansn't possible. I won't finish it tonight, but I'd like to share with you what happened on our trip.

The first day we got there,, we arrived around 5pm and spent the evening taking in the awesomeness of the city (driving to the hotel) and relaxing. We went to an awesome BBQ place, that was like fast food, but BBQ. SO GOOD!

The second day, we went into a briefing at 7 am, after having to be to the base at 6. Needless to say, we were up before 5 am. What a long day! After the briefing, we got to see the trainees run part of their morning run, and this was the first time we saw Nate. After that, they had a coin ceremony which is the part of the graduation where the trainee's receive the Airman's coin, and transition officially from trainee to Airman. After this, we were able to see Nate and spend the day with him on the base.

The second day at the base (third day of our trip) was the actual graduation. We got to see the Airmen swear in to the Airforce by taking the Oath. They also paraded in front of us and we got to see all of their flags and hear all of the Flights that graduated and they received a few awards. After that we were able to go see the barracks and then were allowed to go off base at noon to any part of the San Antonio area. I think (if I remember correctly) we went and took Nate to buy a phone, and then went to the hotel for the evening. It was mostly a relaxing day.....

Current State of the Fort

::Sigh:: I miss the fort..
It's been deconstructed for awhile. The Office will always be watched reguardless of the fort, but I do miss the actually fort. Although, depsite the establishment of the fort is no longer, the fort will remain... well we could just call the entirety of our apartment the fort, but with lack of sheets it just doesn't quite right. It will get rebuilt, I hope, in the future, but maybe not.. I really don't know what the future holds for the fort, but as we go on on our day to day adulthood life, the memory will remain...
