Dance Dance like a rockstar!!
August 2nd 2009
Back from a well relaxed HLTA. I was actually looking forward to coming back as I was getting a little bored on vacation. So what do I do as soon as I get back? Go to a Dutch party of course!!! The Dutch has the reputation for throwing the best rave party in KAF. For a moment there I almost forgot where I was! Yes it was THAT good!
Words has it that Finger 11 are coming to perform on the boardwalk. Other famous people? Guy Lafleur and Patrick Cote will be in town.
Yup..it's almost over...I'm sad and relieved at the same time. I met so many great people since I got back and it's hard to realise that...this is only temporary. But yet I'm looking forward to coming home, eat comfort food, drive my car, see my friends and be with my family who is missing me and was so patient with me all this time.
Medal ceremony, Oh yeaaaa...I too get a medal. A beautiful general's service medal with my name on it.

Getting my well deserved medal
finally close another chapter in my life.
My experience at Kandahar Airfield is an adventure I would never forget. I guess what I miss the most is not having to cook for myself, not having to do my own laundry, late night movies with my fellow Canadian military friends, late night chat over coffee with friends I just met on the boardwalk and believe it or not, listening to my roommate yapping about her life full of drama. This journey gave me a heads up on what it is like living in a conflicted country.
Even though I was not allowed to leave base, reality of war hits us hard when we either have to go to a ramp ceremony to enduring rocket attacks.
Some people found love, some... lust, many found friendship; but now it is nothing but a distant memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going. No matter where I find myself, what I do, I live in the moment. Go do what you’ve always wanted to accomplished, never regret anything, use common sense, go explore the world but keep one thing in mind;
It's so beautiful...sniff..sniff...
