Jason Grose's BLOG

January 1998





What's a blog, you ask? It stands for "weblog" and it's basically an online journal of daily thought. We'll see how long I can keep this up (as though I don't have enough to do!)

If you must have a title, I'll go with: The daily thoughts/rants of a Marine Officer, father, scholar, husband, marathon runner, Flash cartoonist, computer nerd.

This marks the end of my personal journal during 1997-1998. I created entires as you see them and then emailed them to my wife to give her a sense of my daily life during The Basic School. In 2003-2004, I took each entry on the 6th anniversary of that day and posted them into this retroactive BLOG, editing out some parts to protect the guilty (me being among them).

If this has taught me anything, it is that without documenting daily thoughts into some type of medium, those thoughts will be forever lost. I am a very different person than I was when I wrote them and will be different still when I read them later in life. But for the moment in time, I can look back and see the person I was and for that, the effort is well worth it.

Went to Dryers and then to pick up Soloflex and put at his house
Took his spare TV
Returned home
