It's been a bit of time since I have written a blog and the only reason that I can give is that nothing of much interest has happened to me since I headed out to the midwest to see the phish shows.  Life here in homer has been trudging along at a steady rate and I find myself on the cusp of being finished with my summer season and am ready to go back to asia and enjoy my life once again.  Work has been work and I dont have much to say about it other then I am extremely tired of looking at halibut let alone cutting a 100lbs per morning.  I fucking hate fish and constantly find myself covered in fish slime which just isnt fair. 

on an interesting note I have packed up my tent and am living in the storeroom above the restaurant where I work.  It's a pretty good deal since I dont have a commute to work and I get free wi-fi and satellite tv.  on the downside I dont have the fresh air and the relative peace and tranquility that you get when camping in nature.  Tranquility is nice I suppose but after awhile you get tired of pulling nettles out of the crack of your ass so I guess its a good thing that I am indoors.

Im is pretty pumped about me coming back and she is already packing her bags and getting ready to meet up with me in bangkok.  I talked to her last night and she said she can wait 4 months but 5 months is too much so i need to get back NOW.  she's a funny girl with her broken english and perverse sense of humor so i'm happy that she has waited around for my sorry ass.  I now only have 14 days left before I get on the plane back to asia and i cannot wait to be finished with alaska and get back with Im.

Upon my arrival in Thailand I am finally undertaking my instructor course for scuba diving (IDC).  I have been putting this off for a few years both because of the cost and because I wasnt sure I was ready to make the commitment towards an actual career in scuba diving but I have sat down and figured out that this is the right move for me at this juncture in my life since I have the money and have the confidence and love of diving to make me a good instructor.  the course costs quite a bit of cash but I also get quite the pay boost and am much more hireable so it should pay itself off in a month or two and with any luck I may be able to skip my yearly trip to alaska in the near future and live a life of sun and scuba year around.  cross your fingers for me cuz i need all the luck i can get

Hey Neal,
Glad to hear you're gonna do your IDC. From the times we dove together, I know you'll make a great instructor. Good luck, and happy trails. Hope to run into you again in Thailand sometime, maybe on The Rock.
