Well, the ol' lady and I had a pretty long conversation last night. Bottom line, I've realized that working where I am (inside the fence in general, plus the hour-plus drive each way every day) is eating me up, and I'm just not happy at all with what I'm doing. I've done some soul searching, and I think I'm going to be trying to switch to the local PD as soon as I can get my lazy ass back in shape. The pay, if they count my corrections experience as "sworn" experience (I am sworn; just some agencies don't want to acknowledge it as far as experience), will be roughly what I'm making now, plus a higher uniform allowance and $3,100/yr "state incentive pay", so that's not that big of an issue. It would mean the hiring process all over, and a 24 week academy plus 24 weeks of FTO, but overall, I think I'd be happier with it. I just realized I'd really rather work the street than inside the fence, or like y'all said earlier, even most of the federal-level investigative positions. So, I'm emailing one of their recruiting officers here shortly to see if my experience counts. Regardless, I think I'm going to do it within the next few months.

Who do you think you are, Dragoon?

And prove you're a supercop and take a powdered sugar donut without getting any on your uniform!

And CJ, you gotta do you, brotha. Give it an honest shot, I think your time inside will be an asset when you hit the street. Good luck! Keep us posted!

CJ, don't wait another second if you know what you want. Before you know it, it will be too late and you will live with regret. Just go for it.

Soooooo....

I'M GOING TO A FALCONS GAME!!!!

It's my first NFL game. I've been to two MLB games when I was a wee lad in Canada. My Cub Scout troop saw the Blue Jays and Rangers play.

It's been my happy thought all day!

Stupid agency directives and policies!

Thanks, guys. It's just been a really trying time the last few days, but it really opened my eyes on things, too. The girl and I are no more as of tonight, and all the other stuff has been eating at me, too. It's just time for a change, and time for a positive one.

Argh. It's easier when you can get mad at them when you break up, you know? I don't think I've been quite this torn up since LB, for those that remember her. What a mess.

How old are you?

Don't worry. You'll find another one.

Just as you moved on since LB, you will move on from this one.

Trust me. I've lived long enough to know there is no need to be all torn up for anyone.

I'm 27. Thanks, man. I know I'll move on; it just sucks in the meantime.

Dude, if I was +27 again, you know what I would be doing... which is... doing what I did back then... again... and having a blast while doing it too.

Seriously, you got a career, good head on your shoulders, just put yourself out there, and women will flock to you. A good guy is hard to find and they know it.

Too many losers out there with no real job, no goals, beat them, disrespect them, can't treat them right, etc. When a woman finds a good man, they know and latch on. That's actually what you have to be careful about more than not being able to find anyone.

If you've realized that you're not happy in the hoosgow, it's too late, get out.....


Next month will be a year since I left and you'd never get me back inside that place.

Keep your head up.
