Allow me to introduce myself

For the most part, I've kept this blog free of information about my personal life.  It's not that I'm paranoid, it's that I'm not really allowed to go into too much detail about what I do on a daily basis.  But there are some vague tidbits I can share.

First of all, I've mentioned several times that my internet situation at the moment is somewhat tenuous.  This is because I am currently onboard an aircraft carrier and sailing around the mediterranean.  I am enlisted in the US Navy and am enduring a 7 month cruise, supporting flight ops so that our pilots can drop ordinance on some jihaddin motherfckers. 

This is my second cruise since I enlisted over 3 years ago.  I'll be getting out of the Navy in 8 months, and frankly, I can't wait to be a civillian again.  The Navy has done a lot of good for me.  It's gained me world experience, some free college classes, helped me save money, and will be paying for my school when I get out.  Over this cruise and the last, I've visited Brazil, Peru, England, Spain, Italy, Dubai, and the United Arab Empire.  I was onboard the Carl Vinson, which was the first responder to the earthquake in Haiti crisis.  On this cruise, I've taken a psychology class, an english class, and will be starting English Comp 2 soon. 

But enough about work.  I'm 23 years old.  Like dogs, but love cats.  I like to write and draw.  I like video games and movies.  I'm learning to play the guitar.  And my first life's goal will be to ensure Humans colonize another planet so that the existence of our species is not at the mercy of a rogue asteroid.  My second life's goal will be to live forever, and my third life's goal will be to transcend time... but I'm taking things one at a time~

Sorry if you're one of the people whom I never seem to comment back to, there are a few of you whose comment boxes simply will not work for me =/  However, this cruise is over halfway done, and in a few months, I'll be far more active on my blogging.

I hope you've found this interesting.  I can't really tell you too much more about what I do.  If I did, I wouldn't have to kill you, but I'd probably get my internet priviledges revoked~

Much love,
