oh teh noes; I's be goin' away for a while!
I was thinking about just giving people my password and screwing around with my account, but I might actually be able to come back to the boards in not too long.
I'm going to Maine Maritime Academy starting August 27th. I'll be joining the Regiment of Midshipmen, and seeing as how it's my first year I won't have very much freedom, and I'm not sure how much time I'll have to even go online. The first five days is basically a mini boot camp where I get yelled at constantly (nothing like army or marine bootcamp, it's not a military academy), but it'll still suck.
Here are some pictures of last years RPT (regiment prep training):
Hopefully, once I graduate, I will have obtained a US Coast Guard unlimited tonnage license (I'm going in for Marine Engineering Operations, but I hope to move up to Marine Systems Engineering, which is a five year program) and be making an assload of money. I also plan on getting an anchor tatooed to my arm when I graduate ;)
Wish me luck and stuff!
