Monthly Blog Fodder

So it seems we have fallen into a new month, which that means it is time for my monthly post. Currently I am doing monthly posts until I find enough information to do more than one post. Nothing major has happened in the last month. Just more job hunting with no call backs. I am really hoping to get called back to the airline soon. All my friends seem to think we will get called back in the spring or summer so I hope that is true because I definitely miss flying and traveling. I am pretty bitter after this whole experience. I love flying and my job I had. At the same time I want stability in my life and would like to not have to worry if I am going to have a job next week. I know that no company/industry is safe, but the safe feeling that you will always have your job is comforting. The last few months I have thought about many career changes, from air traffic control to police officer to computers to banking and more. I keep coming back to the fact that I love flying, exploring new cities, and socializing with my crew. So I think that means that I know I want to stay in my field of "expertise" if you can call it that. It looks like my next step then is to get back into Flight Instructing until we get recalled to go back to the old job. At least there I will still be flying and sometimes going to other places. On much happier news, I have taken a trip back out east to Georgia to spend some time with all my friends. Damn, I have so missed being out here I can't wait to move back.

Cant Sleep......

Hello all! It is 3:30 am. I could not sleep so I decided it is about time for my monthly blog post haha. I thought it might be a good idea to make use of my domain It was originally picked out for my business that I will be starting once I have a job again. In the mean time I am just going to use it as my own personal website, so you all should check it out. It is still in the construction phase so I will add and delete things periodically. Also if anyone has a website, pictures, or movies they would like me to edit please let me know. There will be no charge (tips always welcomed LOL). I am in need of some projects to add to my portfolio for when I launch my company. If you have questions or are interested you are welcome to email me at

Howdy Y'all!

Tex here and new to the whole bloggering thing. I figure this can be your one stop shop for reading the ramblings of Tex. Eventually if you read long enough you might read something that might be somewhat funny! Well I recently moved back into my folks house after being laid off at my job of being a suave airline pilot. I am currently working on becoming an air traffic controller with the FAA. Unfortunately since it is a government job, the process is super slow. I have applied and was selected to take the aptitude test. Now I wait to get my test date and that's still just the beginning of the process. I am hoping within the year I will be out in Oklahoma City going through training but I think that might be wishful thinking on the time line.

In other news, I missed Texas and am happy to be back home. It has been way too long. I am working on getting my concealed handgun license, which unfortunately is quite expensive. On the other hand it will be nice to have a class on the do's and do not's. Tomorrow will also be a busy day with job hunting and going to the local college. I am going to try and get a pell grant and go back to school. I am thinking about getting an Associates Degree in Computer Science. Im not sure what the emphasis will be, either programming or management information systems. What do y'all think?

Well that is all I have for now. Thanks for stopping into the tavern and be careful on the drive home.


Under Constructionz.....New post soon!
