Just stopping in

  1. Dec 6, 2009 #1
    Hi all,

    I'm not sure who's around who remembers me but I just thought I'd stop in and say hello anyway. I haven't posted in the last few years, and haven't even lurked much recently but I got all nostalgic today and was perusing my old haunts and of course came back here. I think I just feel a need to post in here and add to the number of states I was living in while posting here.

    Anyway, Happy Holidays to all! Hope everyone is well and thriving.

    Hi Gale! How are you doing? Have you finished school?

    And, I think you're WAY older than 17 by now. :biggrin:

    Yeah... something like 22 now. Its been a while. No, I didn't finish school. I enlisted in the Navy a year ago, and I'm super happy with the decision. I speak arabic now, and currently I'm stationed in California. Hopefully in the next year or so I'll have the opportunity to finish my math degree though.

    Wow! That's an exciting new direction. I'm glad you've found something that finally makes you happy (and got you out on your own).

    In you're in San Diego it's an automatic mast for not contacting me.

    Glad to hear you're liking the Navy!

    So very nice to hear a up date on you. Gail, we sure have missed you, and yes even worried about you. Don't you ever take this long to get in touch with us again!

    The Navy is a great choice, so much to learn and so many cute men:blushing: Always remember us as your home port, you will always be welcome. {{{{HUGS}}}}

    hey sailor, if you get some shore leave, maybe you, Zoob, and the Ape, and I could meet up in San Diego. Would be even more fun if Huckleberry could come - you two could swap Navy stories. :)

    That would be fun. Unfortunately my car is a heap and I worry that I'll even make it to work each day. I'm not sure I should drive it all the way down to SD. :-/
     
  20. Dec 7, 2009 #19
    actually I'm not in SD. I'm actually stationed at an army base in CA right now. In a few months I'll be transfered to Georgia, and that will probably be my permantent duty station for a while.

    So no mast for me yet Zooby.

    Its definitely a very interesting direction for my life to have taken. But its a happy one, in fact I'm thriving. Its amazing what some strictly enforced rules will do for a girl. But yeah. Arabic is awesome, and I'm excited to do some serious traveling in the future. Its just funny to think back on how I got here, and how somehow everything sort of works out in the end.

    If only I lived that far South. I'm North of LA, about 2 hours from San Fran.

    And PS- central CA coast totally sucks. I thought I'd be leaving the cold weather!
