Fight to conquer. Conquer to rule. Rule to excel. As rulers, we show respect to our enemy and do not mock them in battle. For to do so is to show the mark of a weakened man, and not a true ruler. -Tidurian

Not at all boring! WELCOME to the Florians!

I have some family in Romania, far to the south of you, I know, but you're closer to them than I am now... Not Gypsies, my family... Just felt the need to clarify that. Your habits aren't barbaric to me, I have much of the same, only I chew on straws. the plastic kind, or else cinnamon sticks.
Gothic subculture didn't start out being depressed or anti-social, we actually kind of started out being attracted to the Visi-GOTH era in art, architecture, and poetry. thus the name. The main feeling throughout was that mankind was evil, and all was hopeless, the feelings came out in the music, and from there spread to the modern "goth" industrial that you hear today. I personally wear shockingly bright colors, in all jewel tones, but accent in black. I still consider myself a Goth.
And it's ok to dislike people for whatever reason. I dislike most people that I have to smile at on a daily basis, and pretend that they're the most important thing in my current existence. It has become a game I play... Blend in with the masses.

My name is really not important so Aes will have to do. I'm a 20-year-old Canadian art student on vacation.

Ehhh... like a lot of people here I play video games (loving Ninja Gaiden 2, and replaying both Assassins Creed games, at the moment). Other than that I'm a very boring person who sits there and reads, draws, and watching Discovery/History channel when I don't feel like playing on the computer or 360/wii.

Nice to meet you all. =]

Edit: ha ha.. another person from Canada posted while I was writing this one.

So many squids! I don't have anything against Navy particularly, just one single sailor.

I was formerly married to one, who now lives in San Diego, an entire country away from me, and yet, I still feel like it's too close.

Oh gawd. you wouldn't happen to know anyone named Napoleon would you? If so, I am truly sorry for your misfortune.

Although, to be fair, the man was very loyal to his friends. An asshole, sure, but a LOYAL one.

I'm in school for CTI right now. I might not make it at the rate that I am going. The school is rather difficult and I don't have a lot of talent for language.

It's nice to meet fellow sailors who aren't in the same field.

And sorry to hear that you had a bad time with one of ours, Ayistromia.

It's alright. Shit happens.

STAY IN CTI! It's a good rate, cushy jobs, low stress... If you have to, get the Rosetta Stone for off-hours study.

I was thinking about joining the military once... til I realized I'm fat, hate the idea of boot camp, and am bad at taking orders... but other than that!

Yeah, CTI was my primary choice til they asked me to go Submariner, so I went IT so I could put my knowledge of computers to use. Then I found out all the computers were 40 years old and none of my know-how meant crap. What language are they putting you into? I nearly aced my DLAB and they wanted me to learn Mandarin, I dropped the program before getting out of bootcamp though.

And no, I don't know any Napoleon, though if I see him I'll give a swift kick for you.

@Dustin - If you were ever to go military, you'd learn that they're masters at putting up a masquerade to hide the fact that its just another 9-5. All the yelling and ordering around (moreso in the Navy/Airforce) dies down and you just show up and do what needs to be done. Its by no means AS easy as civilian work, but its nothing like what they try to show it as.

Really? I'm just terrible at taking orders... I mean, I would if i had to, im sure. I just think if i was pushed beyond what i know are my limits in bootcamp, I'd end up getting my ass kicked because I just wouldn't do it.


...or i'd cry. lol

Oh, believe me, I'm trying to stay in. I've been over my routine and study habits multiple times with my chain of command and my teachers. I'm picking things up, just not fast enough. I can read well enough, speak sort of ok, but I don't have the ear for it. Speaking of which, I need to get back to studying and finishing up errands.

Heh, boot camp isn't as bad as it is portrayed. Maybe back in the day it was nasty, but nowadays, it's just tedious. The biggest headache I had in basic was my fellow recruits. Some of them couldn't grasp the concept of keeping their heads down and actually doing what they were supposed to do. Weight honestly wasn't that big of an issue. We had several folks who were somewhat fat at the beginning. By the time it was over, we didn't have a single person who didn't pass the physical readiness test. The whole taking orders thing... Well, I look at it as being no different from civilian employment. Boss tells you what to do, customer tells you what they want or expect you to do, most times neither boss nor customer understand what's involved. But you do it as well as you can anyways. Only difference is that it's a bit harder to walk away from a shitty job in the military.

In my experience, I hated the first week and thought of every way to get out of it, but they're pretty effective in changing that perspective. It cycles from fear/escapism, to roughing it out, to being able to take pride in making it through everything they throw at you.

I will admit I hate my current lot in the Navy and plan to get out when my enlistment is up, but I am very happy to have gone through all this. I think it benefits more than it detracts, but I can't do it for life - it impedes too much with my goals.

Anyway, topic fully derailed Smile welcome aboard shipmates!
