Happy Thanksgiving

23 November 2007
Good afternoon and Happy Thanksgiving! Sure it's a day late but at least I got around to it. Sorry it has been so long since I updated, but I'm still running on no internet whatsoever. I've got my cell phone and a laptop now, but still no connection. I'm going tomorrow to speak with some people in the mall nearby and have them come hook me up asap. If you need anything or just want to chat give me a call, if you don't have my number just ask, I may give it to you.

Things are actually going great here. School is awesome, I'm learning stuff and actually enjoying it. Right now we're just doing journalism, but I am surprised how much I like it. Soon we start photojournalism, and that is going to be amazing. I've seen what some of the other sailors who are in the class ahead of me are doing and it looks fun. The instructors are good too, very easy to talk to. So it's easier for me to get my questions answered.

Other than that not much going on here, just enjoying my 4 day weekend. OH YEAH! For those of you who do not know I'm coming home for 2 weeks around Christmas time(Dec. 23 to Jan. 4) So leave your schedules open for some Adam time :P Gotta go for now. My laptop is calling...


Fort Meade, Maryland. Chapter 1.5

02 November 2007
Good Evening folks back home... and anywhere else you may be. SR Wolfe here, in the flesh(well the internet flesh) typing up my own blog entry for a change. As you know, I've been a bit busy, so I would like to start off by saying thank you to Kevin for all the long tedious hours he spent sweating over his keyboard, button-push after finger-breaking button push. I know it must've been horrible for him and I really wish I could repay him somehow, but since I think he wouldn't appreciate cash as much as he would internet props I'll just thank him by simply saying "Thanks Kevin!"

Moving on.

It's been a while since this has been updated, nearly two weeks I think. That is because there has been a lot going on. So I'll fill you in.

2 weeks ago I participated in Battle Stations. As fun and eventful as that was, you'll just have to settle for knowing it was both fun and eventful. I'm legally bound by a page 13 stating that I will not discuss battle stations with anyone who has not been through battle stations. I'm almost 300 percent positive that most of you haven't been, but if you have, feel free to write me about it. After Battle Stations we pretty much had a week of cool down, I donated blood and had some snacks, I shined my boots, we watched some movies and that was about it.

Last friday was graduation. Which was a blast! I finally got to see my family again, and was surprised to see my friends as well, so thanks to the gang for coming up, it meant a lot. I didn't do much over liberty weekend, but that was fine with me, the 2 months prior to that was spent doing all kinds of stuff, so the break was a welcome change. Just hung out with the family and friends, and enjoyed life again. Now I'm sitting here in Fort Meade, Maryland, the location of my "A" School. Classes begin on Tuesday and I'm pumped. One of the guys who's been here a while was showing me some of the stuff I will be doing and it looks like it everything I dreamed it would be. I can't wait to start.

Right now I'm in "Phase 1". Phase 1 is meant to be a transistional phase from boot camp back into somewhat normal life. In phase 1, I am not permitted to have electronic devices, wear civilian clothes, have food in my room, leave base on weekdays, and a few other little things. That may seem bad to some of you reading this, however, I'm pretty much in heaven right now, there are so many things I couldn't do in boot camp that I can do now. The good outweighs the bad, and in two weeks I'll be in phase 2, and life will be grand. In phase 2 I can do all those things I just mentioned not being able to do in phase 1.

When phase 2 rolls around I will buy a laptop, and then I will be able to update regularly, and post all the pictures I have from graduation and liberty that for some reason wont post from these computers on base. So until then I'm going to get on some stuff I need to get done around here.
