So the journey takes me far away

I know I said I wasn't going to discuss work on here, however it is a huge part of my life. I won't speak in specifics, but mere generalities. I am going to be gone overseas for a good amount of time. It's sad considering I haven't been home that long and I am on my way out the door again. I will miss my wife and son, but there is a part of me that is ready to go. Ready to do my job and live the life. It's strange how you can desire something and not want anything to do with it at the same time. I started thinking about other people's experiences in life and wondering if they had something akin to this. I'm sure there are other professions out there that cause people to be gone for a good period of time. I would be content to just live my life with my wife and son, however I need a job that gives me the same level of pay and security. Hard to beat that right now considering I do not have a college degree. Anyway that is simply a small musing I was having prior to embarking on a very big journey.

The end of the new Battlestar Galactica

I know I am behind the times on TV shows since I only watch them over Netflix. That being said I was a little disappointed in the whole "technology is evil" motif that ended the newer Battlestar Galactica.Technology can not be evil, it is merely a tool wielded by an imperfect being that chooses how to use it. I think that is at the heart at a lot of debates that bother me such as gun control. There is no evil in the weapon, the intent is in the hands of the wielder. We are more afraid to accept responsibility for our actions so we demonize something in order to make it the scapegoat of our fears. Any thoughts out there from those in blog land?

First Post

I created this blog as a place to record my thoughts on life. I won't be speaking about my work here because quite frankly I don't need to put out there what I do. I just want this as a place to explore my thoughts and maybe find some clarity in the things that bother me from time to time.
