Military Archives: A Marines Diary P.3.


2008, January 27, Sunday.

Woke up at 12:00pm at my nephews house, who is the same age as me, and dropped him off at the bus station so he could look for houses. I then went to visit my sister at her house, and ate lunch with her and her kids.


With Dr.Pepper, tostadas, my nephew & my niece beside me I am a happy family man. I spent most of my time at their house researching Neuro-Linguistic Programming(NLP) on YouTube. Note to self; you should definitely continue researching this subject matter. Also, check out Influence: Science and Practice by Robert Cialdini. The books about persuasion.

On another note, when you come back from Iraq, open up a “Roth IRA” with “Morgan Stanley”, or any credible bank, really. Picked up Private Mulberry from the San Diego airport and he gave me $20.00 without me asking for any money. Booyakasha. Boh, Boh! Respect.

MISSION STATEMENT I am always looking for my next creative project be it a new song, a new video, a review, a technical achievement, or sharing tips on resilience. I believe in building character and love to share the knowledge i've built through my experience to those who wish to listen. In the end it's not about me, but what you can achieve through me. WHO I AM I am a man who enjoys a cup of coffee ☕️ with cream/milk and sugar every morning. I served in the Marine Corps for four years and did one combat tour during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) 🇺🇸. I'm a nerd/geek and proud of it. I play video games, create content on YouTube, write a journal, and am working on a music album. My favorite color is purple which makes sense, because I am free spirit who enjoys helping others . This is an outlet to record my thoughts, share my experiences, and collaborate 🤝. Please feel free to browse around, comment, click on links, or just say hi.
