    The past few days of my life.

    The past few days of my life have generally been great. Only one event I can really complain about and I won't until the end. Probably more of a hurt ego than anything else.

    Anywho...

    On Friday, March 31st I took my Missouri POST exam and later found out that I passed with a 90%. I then spent most of the rest of that day with my friend who flew in to be my best man while he was on leave. He is in the Army (Military Intel, forget his unit) stationed in Colorado and just got back from 8 months in Iraq.

    More importantly that day, I guess, is that I got married . Ahh, what a wonderful feeling. I actually don't have much else to say on that, but here are some pictures:
    - The kiss
    - Me and my wife
    - Cutting the cake
    - She kicked my ass with the cake
    - The wedding party

    On Monday, April 3rd I graduated from the police academy. I am now Class A certified in Missouri(woot woot), just need to focus on a job now lol. Glad that the past 6 months are finally over. Whew. On a sad note though, I graduated in my class 21/30. With a 91%. Freaking nuts. Doesn't bother me too much though.

    Now onto what really screwed up the weekend for me. Since my dad was in town for my graduation and wedding. He offered to rent me a nice car for the week. I decided on a Black 2006 Charger. Mmmm yes very nice. But damn if that car wasn't bad luck, or maybe it was my best man in the car with me. Because not 2 minutes after getting the car and driving off the rental lot I got a ticket for speeding (48 in a 30) . I won't even get into the whole story of it because in the end it really is all just my fault. Still angry as heck. Over four years of 0 problems and I get a speeding ticket on my wedding day and a few days before I graduate from the academy.

    Here are some pictures from graduation:
    - My class, me being the darkest one up there
    - Marching back after receiving our basic training diplomas
    - Taking our oath
    - Retiring our class guidon
    - Me and my girls
    - Me and my wife
    - Me, my dad, my mom, and my step-mom
    - Last picture, promise

    That last picture really didn't have anything to do with anything...I just happened to fall asleep with my daughter a month or so back and my wife took a picture of us while we were sleeping.

    The real kicker though is that my sister was pulled over Saturday for speeding and she has a very long history for it and didn't even get so much as a verbal warning, she got into a conversation with the officer because he remembers seeing me at the academy when he came once as a sort of assistant instructor. I guess the good that came out of that meeting was he told her to encourage me to apply at his department because they would be having an opening soon.

    Congrats man. Hit me up with a PM from where around MO you are at. I am in KS.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
