I Died

Not really, but with the lack of updates to my blog, you may as well have thought me dead, gone, and other words of a similar meaning to which my absence can be described as.

So, last week on Wednesday I finally got my drivers license. Took the road test exam, did well on it. Only one problem with my driving, I don't shoulder-check when turning right or left at a stop sign, otherwise my driving is good. So, I've finally gotten rid of my 'N' -- can't say I'll miss it, either.

Another thing that happened on Wednesday last week was that I got to fly for the first time in my life. A short hour long flight down to Vancouver. Did I get a window seat? Nope, I got an aisle seat, so I didn't get to see anything. Which is probably for the better, since I fell asleep once the plane was in the air. Just out like a light. I guess you could say I wasn't entirely excited about flying for the first time, or anxious, or even nervous. Just another thing that's happened to me in my rather rushed pace as I head off for Basic.

Oh, yes, and I'm not army, Canadian Forces. I was sworn-in last Thursday at CFRC Vancouver, which was why I flew down there in the first place. A lot of paperwork, but in the end, I think it was well worth it. And then on Sunday, just a couple days ago, I got Baptized. About time I did that -- been a Christian for well over sixteen years now. And lastly, I leave for Basic this Friday.

So much happening in such a short time, who knew?
