My best friends

Well, I have a plethora of best friends, so I'm going to get a few in here and you'll have to live with. First a random though I had, there is nothing better than going home and being known by your first name. I'm known by all my friends as "Phill" or "Phillip" and by everyone who I work with as Cripe, and to be called Cripe all the time is a bummer, coming home and being known as Phillip is nice. Strange thought, but I felt it worth sharing. Anyway, friend number 1: Nathan Scholes.

Nathan, Nathan, Nathan. Where can I start? Nathan is such a fantastic guy, me and him met in church YEARS back, and we've been best friends for a long time. He's always been there when I've needed him, he's hilarious, he's ambitious, ect ect. The day I went to MEPS to join the army then he went on his mission and even though that wasn't so long ago, just about 2 and a half years, it feels like forever since I've been able to hang out with him. One of my goals when I get out of the army is to hang out with him like we used to, or at least close. He got married in October to another good friend of mine, Whitni, and I think that's awesome, I wasn't able to be there for the wedding which kills me when I think about it, but I'm super happy for them.
Friend number 2: Harry Lorigan

Me and him met when I redeployed from Iraq and he joined our platoon, but we never became friends will we realized an afinity for video games we both shared, among other things like anime and music and being retarded. He's my best friend in the army, hands down, and even though we've only known each other for a year I feel like me and him have way more stories than that.
There are about 3 others I want to get to, but I'm feeling way too tired to do them right now, no homo, but I'm sure I'll get to them later.


  1. Phillip!!! I like the idea to answer those questions! Especially if it gets you writing since we don't get to talk very much. I don't know if you feel the same as me, but being far away blogs are sometimes the best connection I have to people from Idaho.

  2. I loved reading about your friends!
