I hope you and all the men and women over seas this year are safe, free from harm, comfortable, and know that each and every one of them is loved dearly back home. Please extend the thanks of everyone from here at X-Strike, and from all of our fans, to your fellow airmen this holiday season. God Bless you Ryan, and God bless the troops.
I really appreciate the kind words from you, and I've been appreciating all of the stuff that's you guys have been sending me, as well as your support. To be honest, this week had be really hard for me. I was stressed due to my work load, on top of monthly inventories, on top of making sure the airmen I'm looking out for stops being a total asshat, on top of missing my first white Christmas and possibly one bad ass Magfest. Plus my boxing class was cancelled due the instructor going home after his deployment, leaving me with one less way to cope with the stress out here. Hell, two days ago I was thinking "I just want to go home".
But, my inventory is accounted for, my work load will lighten up, I'm doing much better today, and my X-Box 360 is here, with my two hori sticks. Hopefully I can put together that Street Fighter IV tournament for charity while I'm out here, plus I might even go crazy and pre-order Bayonetta. Then again, that may be a bad idea, due to the sheer amount of raging testosterone going on here. Also, when I get really bad, I usually feel better because I'm working off a large portion of my credit card debt while I'm out here, so things are still looking up...plus I still have all of my limbs and the ability to process oxygen, which is always good here.
