 Holy shit.

Holy fucking shit.

First post I've made in a long, long time and then my laptop decides to assume the "Backspace" button means go back one page, completely eliminating everything I had just written.

Fuck it.  I'm summarizing.

1.  Graduated from USNA, Class of 2011.

2.  Wanted to propose to Hannah, but her mother said no b/c I "did not accept the Lord, Jesus Christ, as my personal savior."  As happy as her and I were together, we decided to break up the morning after graduation.  Although we were physically together until that morning... and that was the last time I had seen her.  We still talk a lot, and I'll always have love for the young Lady... and we're going to my sister's wedding in Boston at the end of August.

3.  The first month I moved here was extremely lonely... I was one of the few Ensigns here waiting for the July 27th class-up for our year-long nuclear propulsion training.  Just living in Charleston, SC.  But at the end of July, a bunch of friends moved here for the same class up, and life has been pretty amazing so far.

4.  I am literally living my dream.  For the past 6 years, I have wanted to earn the honor of being a US Naval Officer... from sweating through the blue shirt as 3rd Class Petty Officer to enduring the trials and frustrations as a Naval Academy Midshipmen, the work has all paid off.  I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering and will be serving as a submarine officer after a lot of hard work throughout this program.  I am a bit older than nearly all of my peers (26 yrs old, most are 21/22/23) so I am both hopeful and grateful for the future and the little extra experience I am bringing to the game.

So that's the summary.  I guess being laconic can be a good thing from time to time, although this post was hardly laconic, in a manner of speaking.  Nonetheless, that's the update.  Single and living in sin city.  Again.  Last time I was here, I started dating Elise Littleton.  I hope she's doing well these days - we haven't spoken for 4 years, since our speechless breakup during first semester of Plebe Year.
