anhonestsoul asked: In two days I will be going to RTC! I don't know why but I don't feel nervous or anything. It still hasn't hit me. Were you nervous? I really enjoy your blog btw.
It’s normal you’re about to take a huge step into the unknown. Because you have the honor courage and commitment to stand up for our nation. It’s a lot of weight to carry but I know you’ll be fine. Remember it’s no chief yes chief no petty officer yes petty officer. Ok? Don’t lose sight of the prize it’s only 8 weeks :) ok? Good luck and I look forward to calling you shipmate!
THE NAVY FAMILY.
One of the hardest things to do is leave your comfort zone. To step out into the cold dark world and embrace the fact you’re gonna get beat down but, the best thing about that. The greatest thing about this big crazy planet is that there will ALWAYS be these amazing people along the line. That will help you that will care for you and be your family away from home because no one can do this alone…I’m truly blessed I have amazing people like this and I’m HONORED that I get to serve with them. So here’s to my people. My friends. MY NAVY FAMILY.
In the military mostly the navy we have this thing called the “dear john effect” The best way i could ever explain it is imagine something you love. something you would die for that you fight for something that you truly call your own. now imagine it not being real… everything was fake.. and it was taken from you… that feeling of sorrow of heart break and loneliness… well my friends that’s the dear john effect. As im sure you assumed this is about a girl… about heart break but about how closed a dark door that i thought i could find light in and although there was much light in the door but it was clouded and shadowed….doomed to fail but i truly believed that i could make it work. a lot of people forget that it takes two to tango yes but she wasn’t even on the dance floor. To be honest i was recently in very dark place. I shut out the world for the actions of one person and that’s not right nor fair. so im here telling you all that even tho it hurts even tho you want it all to end…. just be strong be fierce and never let your self fall because if you do they win. people like that don’t win just like they don’t have a right to be in your life. the raven… she stole my heart and crushed it in her hands but its OK. It was a lesson i will never forget a lesson the will be taught so that they never experiences the “Dear john effect” this is me letting go. remember stand tall stand proud.
i wasn’t made to be broken and neither were you.
Another left turn.
This Is what happens when you got a bunch of Aussie officials in the back of a mh-60s. Quite funny really ;)
Anonymous asked: Are you single? And if you are how would a girl catch your eye?
Well I’m not really sure like there is a gal I like that I know I’m talking to but I don’t think we are together hmm hard question.. Ill get back to you on that. So what do I do to catch a girls eye well… Nothing… See this is how I see it. If I’m doing something to catch her eye then most of the time it’s not me you know? I’m bring fake. Well I’m not about that so I just be me if she likes me for who I am then it’s a done deal I should have to do anything but to answer your question… I just be me. :)
thedoctorwillsaveme asked: Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for serving! [I'm not sure if I have before]. The Navy is my favorite branch because my dad was in for 16 years [he was a storekeeper], his dad was in, & I currently have a cousin on my mom's side who is in :]
It’s my pleasure. Thank you for your support believe me it’s and the world to us. That’s fantastic my grandfather and uncle were bot in the navy so naturally I would be to I love it and I’m glad you know what branch is the best ;)
This is a patch from LPD17. The first of its class the USS SAN ANTONIO. Now for those of you who don’t know I was born and raise in the great city of San Antonio and seeing this makes me miss home just that much more. Just be mindful even if you’re a world away you manage to find bits of home everywhere. Just keep your eyes open and you’re heart in the right place and never forever where you started.
Life will knock you down. Life will try and break you and life will drag you into the dirt. But it doesn’t have to you can fight back. You can get up and dig deep and go down swinging because its when were at our lowest were most open to realization and change. It’s your fight my friends but remember just because life throws you a curve ball doesn’t mean you can’t hit a home run… So swing away.
Aim, pull, and forget.
We’re in the military. As you know military’s fight its what we do there’s no way around it. That means at some point we may have to kill some one. It’s a sad reality and hard ship carry on your shoulders but we do it so that the ones we love are safe and taken care of. Just take a moment to pray for those who carry that weight let them know their not fighting alone.
navyfan96 asked: From a lot of stuff i've heard and seen the enlisted men think hate on new officers, any truth? (also hate may be a strong word)
A lot of that goes with we have more experience than them. So they get sent to the fleet to lead us when half of them don’t know what’s going on so it’s hard to look to them for guidance. They navy can say all it wants but you can’t teach leader ship. It comes naturally and as an enlisted trying to go officer that’s what how I want to be. I want to lead because I know I was built for it. I know where I started and I know what it’s like to be the least important guy on the food chain.
Anonymous asked: I've always been terrified of the distance. It's not that I never loved you, I just couldn't admit it because I was scared of not being able to be with you in person more than once or twice a year. I can honestly say that i've loved you for quite some time and i'm sorry I was too stupid to see it until it was too late. I want to know how you're doing
I….loss of words…. That’s never happened to me before… Idk what to say… Ha….
Anonymous asked: I wish I could meet you all over again and I wish I would've been at the airport.
So do I.
I put so much of my self into so much of my attention of my feelings of my heart and soul… And it just wasn’t enough for you. Why ever it was that you wanted I didn’t have and I’m sorry for that but I do believe these things happen for a reason maybe it was to make you realize something or to send you down a dark road… But just always remember even down that dark highway ill be right there with you and that I can promise.
probably my only non military post so far but I had to post this. So as you can see I’ve already celebrated my Halloween and it was pretty awesome I have the coolest friends in the world so to all of you going out tonight make sure you stay safe have fun! And remember you are NEVER to old for Halloween ;)
WINGS AND ROOs.
My heart and soul on my collar my rate in my nations navy and then a memory of a world I left behind where I can say my heart will always be.
