Life's been... life.
Been at Camp Pendleton for about 10 months now and loving the Southern California weather, my hair has never looked redder from the bleaching of the sun and my tan lines are pretty legit.
I got promoted to Corporal in August, exactly at the nine month time in grade needed to be promoted, pretty happy with that. Got a year as a Cpl. before I'm eligible for Sergeant, going to try hard to make sure I'm on point to possibly make that mark.
For work, I'm with base Public Affairs. It's a mixed bag, I'm in a non-deployable unit, which sucks, but I can be a little more relaxed not worrying about that and our shop is small but effective. Also, our new director is more aimed at getting our stuff posted by outside media(and Fox 5 might want to interview me about a story I wrote, not published yet, ah!) If you wanna see some of my work, posted as LCpl. Asia J. Sorenson & Cpl. Asia J. Sorenson, it can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Camp-Pendleton-Scout-244860127876/ and http://www.pendleton.marines.mil for the most part. I also do a weekly comic, archived on our Flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/pendletonscout/albums/72157653071449214
My ankle is pretty much fully healed from the break last year and I'm planning on running races more again now that I have a car, scheduled for a 5k and 10k on Thanksgiving Day at this point.
Hope everyone still around is doing well.
