Stop laughing! It’s better than nothing! Once I get my life straightened out with regards to the Coast Guard I can look into online programs for my Bachelors.

A great (and free!) Resource for learning French as well as Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and German. Personally I’m working on improving both Spanish and French and maybe moving on to Portuguese.

Somewhat complete: Currently in paperwork limbo

This was something that I’ve wanted to do since I was 17. I actually went to MEPS five years ago when I was 21 but I was rejected due to being overweight. at 5’3” 200 lbs was 40 pounds over the maximum, and realistically 65lbs overweight. So I gave up on it for awhile.

Then for some reason when I was 24 I got my butt kicked into gear. I went vegetarian, lost 45 pounds, went back to school and finished my associates and got myself all but $1000 out of debt. Everything was going well for me except my situation at work. So after a particularly bad argument with my boss, I printed out the application for enlistment and sent it in. When I went back to MEPS I was actually expecting to fail, but I made weight within 5 pounds.

Four months later I’m just waiting for the credit check to go through and I’ll have a ship date.
