All About DarkPrinceXC
I'm hardly ever at this site anymore. I've gotten much more attached to the Chicago Blackhawks message boards, but I'm still lurking here every day. I'd like that to change.
Anyways, it's even rarer that I post a blog. I was at Wal-Mart on Thursday picking up some cleaning supplies, when I saw a buddy of mine from my old unit. We did a deployment together. Said hi and everything, but he was on his way out. Turns out, he was killed yesterday in a motorcycle accident. I feel so numb right now. We weren't the closest friends or anything, but it's just scary how 3 Marines that I deployed with are now dead. They were set to deploy again around May 15 to Afghanistan.
Rest in peace Cody. Great Marine, great person. He will be missed.....
So I'm finally back in Illinois! After many hours of delays on Friday, my flight finally got into O'Hare that night, and for the first time in 3 years I got to see snow! I'm loving it! I also had my first White Castle experience which was just amazing.
I love being on leave. I've basically spent all of my time so far with my family and girlfriend, and today me and my siblings are at my step-dad's house to celebrate Christmas with their family.
Well I'm off to eat, but I'm not going back to Camp Pendleton until the night of Jan 4th, so you'll see me a lot during this break. First Christmas home in 3 years! Have a happy Holiday Gamespot!
So yeah, I get to go out again to the field tomorrow morning. Whoopee. We're going to be playing a rebel militia group for another unit to do a raid on. I'm not expecting it to be exciting.
So where is this story going? Thank you for asking! I hooked my ipod up to charge it so I'd have something to do while I'm there, and I saw my Zune (which has been corrupted for a few months now), so I figured I'd randomly charge it to see if it would work. It did not, it kept telling me to contact support. So I did what any logical, calm, intelligent person would do......
I threw it against the wall! And what do you know, it cleared the memory, and now works! This is the second piece of electronic gear that has malfunctioned on me, and was fixed by throwing it. The first one being a Sony Cybershot 8.3 MP camera I bought for $350 a couple years ago. Throwing things fixes them, folks.
In other news, all 3 of my sports teams won yesterday! Da Bears, Hawks, and Avs. Woot Woot. Talk to yallz on Friday!

DarkPrinceXC does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send DarkPrinceXC a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
