Carry-on? No not yet. We are still waiting, which is excruciatingly painful, by the way. All of 2017 has passed boards now. Which is not as hard as everyone makes it seem. I studied the week before and took it pretty seriously, and passed with an 8 out of 10 on my first shot. It’s possible. I mean it is a lot of questions and a lot of history, but if you take it every chance you have, you will pass. Passing is the best feeling, too. I gained the privelege of writing on my whiteboard and listening to music out loud, which is something you begin to appreciate when you realize how much easier life is. We got wardroom carry-on, so we can look at our food now. The best thing though is that we found out our summer assignments.
This summer I will be stationed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I will be going with four other people from my company, including my best friend and old roommate Rachel Seaman. We will be able to get pepper sprayed and get other small boat qualifications. The experience will be awesome, and I can’t wait to keep you guys updated on how everything goes. Finals are approaching fast, so I’ll see you all soon. (:
