Hello From Bangkok

Ever gotten tired of doing something or feel bored in general and the only things that interest you are just watching TV or something as equally mind-numbing? That’s me right now. To briefly catch everyone up from the last time I was on my blog, say about a year ago, I was diagnosed with severe depression and was in the twilight of my Naval career. Since then, I got counseling, retired from the Navy, got trained as a master auto detailer, took a college course to be a certified fitness trainer (passed by the skin of my teeth), worked temporarily as a consultant for an oil company (didn’t work out as well as I had hoped when I started) and now I’m taking what I’ve made from that to get my detailing business off the ground. Well, it’s actually a bit below ground at the moment. I’m trying to find enthusiasm to get back into things again. I think if I can get this blog going regularly, not overextend myself and be consistent with the things I have to do, I will be fine.

You may have looked at my title for this post and wonder what it has to do with what I’m talking about. Simply put, I wound up as a consultant for a short time going to Thailand as a Thai speaker and made some decent cash in the process. My end goal was always to support my business back home and I was thinking to get out by the end of the year, but it came sooner than I expected. Honestly, I just wasn’t happy with the work and they were not too happy with my work, compounded with surgery on my knee and sinuses and recovering from depression, I just didn’t have a lot of energy in me and I went into the civilian workforce too soon. I think in the end it is working out for the best and personally I think God was putting it in my heart he wanted me doing my business, not this.

So, I’m currently still in Bangkok waiting for my plane back home.DSCF0389
