  1. Interesting Quote

    Recently, I was listening to the "How Stuff Works" podcast about the Samurai, I heard the guys that talk on the podcast quote a saying from the bushido (samurai honor code) that I found really interesting. I'm not one of those people that are really interested in this kind of stuff but I thought I'd share it :

  2. We're Going Baaaack!

    Ah, don't you just love Staples and thier advertisement about back to school?

    Yeah, well, I do not.

    Annoying as heck, however, it does remind me about a positive aspect of the School Year, the one thing making all those months wasted actually worthwhile.

I'm not even packed yet. I spent all day avoiding packing. I did my uniform, I texted all day, I watched tv and I was on facebook talking to people. I even spent some time with the family. I also found myself to be so poetic today in the way I was talking made me laugh inside. Here goes hoping I make Cornerbrook ...
  5. 10 Things You Thought You Knew About Drill

    So here it is, my first blog entry...

    After years of working at squadrons and summer training, I've noticed that there are few things that many cadets do that are at odds with the drill manual. I decided to take the 10 most common and put them together as a hand-out for the two squadrons I worked with. I'd like to share it with everyone here.
