My Own Headspace

 

Last week I introduced my blog series relating to a new adventure I’ll be gearing up for in the next few months. I will be deploying overseas with the Air Force this upcoming summer, and with that comes a lot of preparation. There are a lot of checklists to complete leading up to my deployment relating to turning in paperwork and completing various trainings. The military does a great job of preparing us for our travels and work, while I find myself creating checklists of my own regarding personal and home life. With this comes my ‘gotta have it’ list to include things I can bring with me to make this deployment transition and lifestyle change easier.

 

The first item I wrote about on my list was a digital voice recorder (check out what I had to say about these here). I highlighted two recorders that Best Buy sells due to their small size, easy use, and battery life. I also mentioned how these recorders have headphone jacks, which means I can keep the embarrassing stories my family and friends might reminisce about to myself as I play them.

She was about to say as much, when Dimitri placed gloved finger to his lips, his crossbow aimed past her.  And then, she heard it.  A strange, faint, slithering sound.  She raised the torch higher, her eyes groping into the darkness, searching for the source of the sound.  But, it was too late.  She felt a sense of dread begin to fill her, as she realized that whoever (or WHATever) was making the noise would surely alerted of their presence by her light.

I look up as a voice from the other end of the table cuts through my thoughts- “Roll for initiative.”
