The only thing even remotely fun about sitting in a class room watching safety slide shows aaaall day long is when I can get all the sailors sitting around me to play the "guess my age" game. The results are hilarious and no one ever believes me when I say that yes, I am indeed much older than sixteen thank you very much.

I just wish I knew why the first age out of anyone's mouth is always twelve. Would a twelve-year-old really get hired into the shipyard, you guys? Really?

Still a half hour of lunch left and I got nothing to do aaaaargh.

Important update:
He has a wife and kid. This really, really shouldn't have surprised me as much as it did, but....

I have a Facebook now, despite the fact I'm not sure I'll ever use it. And Pluto is kind of an awesome manga now that I've actually found it.

I guess that's about it.

It's been a while since I updated this thing, hasn't it? I don't even have anything interesting to write about except silly girlish crap no one really cares about anyway, but it's been on my mind pretty often these days and I feel like I need to get it down somewhere.

I think I might like someone. Really honest to God genuinely at that. He's....kind of a clown, honestly, but he's so sweet. He always does silly little things to make me laugh, even though I think that's something he seems to do for everyone anyway, and he goes out of his way to help me out and making sure I'm doing alright, which he....doesn't really for most people, from what I noticed. It makes me feel a bit special. And he's one of the most amazing story-teller I've ever met, I'm not even kidding.

The problem is, I....kinda have no idea what to actually do about it? Every other crush I've ever had I pretty much ignored until it went away, because I was shy and it was the surefire way of not looking like an idiot. Only I'm feeling the same way all over again and I'm pretty sure it didn't used to suck this much.

Plus, the thought of possibly bringing a sailor home to meet a retired Senior Chief shotgun daddy seems both needlessly cruel and utterly terrifying. :|

And that's my rambling for the week.

Have I mentioned yet how much I hate working up in Bangor? Because I really do. It's boring as fuck, they still have nothing for us to do, and even though we get out an hour earlier there, it takes me almost two and a half hours longer to get home. I wanna go back to Bremerton.

....and all that bitching aside. Nothing much else to report aside from a colorful new journal and profile layouts. And I have doodles.

This is what I do during breaks.Collapse )

So today my new supervisor randomly decided everyone had a theme song. This is what he chose for me. It thought it was cute. XD

Sooooo. I haven't really updated this lately, have I? Bangor is kinda alright. Way more laid-back, but I still miss the Bremerton yard. At least I was actually able to work on the boats themselves over there. Here were just take apart-clean-put back together various motors. It's boring as hell.

I got my red badge today! I finally have Top Secret level clearance and I am happy~ It. Honestly doesn't mean much outside of yaaaay I can go into the engine rooms and stuff now, but I feel like a proper shipyard worker now! No more newbie yellow badge for me!

Also. $1000+ dollar paycheck today, oh fuck yes.

....learning about all the different gruesome deaths we have to be careful not to get caught in is definitely a fun to spend the day, and I hope today we get to do something different. Something where we can move around, too, because sitting in a chair for almost eight hours a day is not cool. :|

And getting ready to leave again, I'll see everyone around 4:30 PST.

5 am is still a completely godawful time to be awake, I'm never going to get used to this sob sob sob.

Yesterday wasn't too bad, though. Just lots of talking, about benefits and security and safety and what sort of training we should expect over the next few days. Which would've been pretty boring if we didn't have a few awesome story tellers telling us alllll about the stupid stuff they did back in their day when they first got hired to the shipyard and why we shouldn't follow in their footsteps. The hippie dude in particular was especially awesome.

And today starts the REAL training, so I guess we'll see how that goes.

....god I'm tired.

EDIT: I can't  type this early in the morning.
