Graduation Number 1!

12 February 2008
Today was the day we graduated from the Basic Public Affairs Specialist - Writer course. The biggest chunk of our training at the Defense Information School. It covers all of the journalism/photojournalism aspects of the job. From here I move on to Basic Still Photography, followed by two more courses before finishing up at the end of April. Also from this point forward I'm only in class with other sailors. No more soldiers, no more airman, no more marines, no more coasties... it's all Navy, all of the time.

While it is nice in some aspects, it also sucks in others. Mainly the fact that I'm losing my best friend to Minnesota of all places(told you, you should've joined the Navy...) I'm noticing a common theme in the military though, you make friends and then you watch them leave. No worries though, I'm sure we'll keep in touch. At least I would hope so.

    Congratulations! I'm so glad you are loving what you're doing. It gives hope to the rest of us who haven't figured it out just yet.

    Ya, I should've joined the Navy.
    I'm so proud of you and everything you're going to be doing, and a bit jealous, I'll admit. Although leaving was emotional as hell, I don't mind missing the 4 am wake-ups, 4 pm formations that take forever, and getting the evil eye from TSGT Thornton. (Even if she gave us pearls. lol) But ya, you did find the most attractive girls to stand between, you pimp. ha ha.
