I apologize for the long hiatus, but so much has changed since my last real entry that I don't even know where to start. I'm still stuck in El Paso at Fort Bliss. This place feels like a black hole. It just sucks you in and doesn't let go.

I started working 6 hour days, 5 days a week to show the Army that I'm making progress towards getting better. They still had me doing administrative stuff, but my responsibilities were greatly reduced when the new OIC came on board.

Eventually my depression started catching up with me and I wound up inpatient at the local psychiatric hospital because I started hurting myself. I'm not proud of it, but I got help and I'm slowly getting better.

The upside is that I made some really good friends and I met my girlfriend there. We're in the early stages of our relationship, so it's still a little awkward. I really want this to work badly, but having never had a relationship, I'm unsure how to proceed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

How long have you been on Livejournal? What major life changes has LiveJournal witnessed?



I've been on LJ since late 2005. LJ has seen me through my dad's stroke, changing schools and majors, getting into nursing school, joining the Army, graduating from nursing school, a long-term illness, getting to my first duty station, learning to be a nurse in the real world, getting hospitalized, and starting my recovery.

It will continue to see me through my medical discharge from the Army and moving back home and trying to piece together my life from the chaos its in right now.

Should physical education in schools be mandatory, and why?


I think it should definitely be mandatory. Kids these days are so sedentary that it may be the only exercise they get all day. Mandatory physical education would help to fight childhood obesity and therefore minimize adult obesity. I had mandatory PE growing up and we did all kinds of things. It doesn't have to just be about running on a track. There are so many fun games that kids can play so that they enjoy their exercise time. I think PE teachers need to be as creative as possible so that kids see that exercise is an excellent habit to have.

What were your favorite books as a child, and why?


My favorite books as a child were the Berenstain Bears series. I loved them because they taught me life lessons about all sorts of things in ways that weren't overly preachy. I used to read them all the time and I had a massive collection of them. I still have them, actually. I'm hoping to pass them on to my kids and have them enjoy as much as I did.

As I got older, I started reading all the books by Lurlene McDaniel. She wrote books about kids with life changing diseases and how they coped with them. I was chronically ill as a child and the books gave me some perspective because my problems weren't nearly as bad as those in the books. I also loved the medical aspects of the stories. As evidenced by my chosen profession (nursing), I really get into the medical portions.

What are your best and worst personality traits? Do you think your friends would agree?

I think my best personality traits are that I'm loyal and eager to please.

My worst traits...I'm stubborn and opinionated and I like to argue. Unfortunately, these traits tend to rear their ugly head at the worst times.

I think my friends would agree.
