My work out began first by getting off a 12 hour night shift from the ER. Then I pounded some Jack3d to work my upper body out then I hit the pool. After about ten minutes of swimming. I decided to push myself. “Over unders” I heard people call it. Swim over the water to the end and then swim under the water on the way back. I’ve always tried to this but I fail almost every time. But this time it was different. I went to go under, swimming only half way. I finish to the end. I freestyle on the way back. I try again. I get a little bit further. I tried maybe 5 or 6 more times. Each time getting closer to the other end in one breath. Then I told myself I’m not leaving until I get to the other end in one breath. Every time I go subsurface I try to calm down and relax, while I breath out slowly. Then finally I get to the other end in one breath. I hit the wall with my hand then I raise the other high in the air as I accomplishing I hidden goal.
In dive school its 50Meters subsurface in one breath. So its little steps 2 years ago
I want to be a Navy Diver. I must pass all evolutions in Pre-Dive Great Lakes,Il. I must pass all evolutions in Panama City, Fl. I must pass all my tests to become a Navy Diver and Dive Medical Techincian. I want a better life for myself. I want a job where I can work hard and play hard. I want co-workers I can trust with my life.

Yes. I have orders to Great Lakes, Il for February 2012
Yes. Anything is possible. To be better than myself. I know I can be better than what the Navy has already given me.
