Bad news: Didn't get selected for promotion. I cried for 30 minutes after I found out.

Good news: Dave was here to cheer me up. And I graduated this morning so I am now an Education and Training Manager in the USAF. And we're leaving to go home tomorrow morning.

Mean mom lady. You can't put in a super awesome pond and not expect the children to want to move back in.

She really is doing a sub par job of making you not want to live at home.

she seems shocked when I'm over there now like 'Didn't we just see you, Gretchen?'

I just roll my eyes at her.

Tell her that if she buys you your own 360 then you wouldn't be over so much.

I actually paid for like 3/5th of the 360, Betsy paid for the other 2/5ths, so it's super unfair that it's all the way across town.

(my life, so hard dude)

I'm looking at the positive side. I've got two more years of just taking the one test instead of both. I figure I'll actually study those two times and maybe I'll have a better shot.

And that's why I think the USAF promotion system is flawed.

It was frustrating. But I'm not going to dwell on it. It won't do me any good.
