Apr. 19th, 2017 @ 10:47 am SPAM POSTING AS RADAR
I am going to post three to four posts a day for two weeks, starting now. This will, I think, enable me to gauge just how many of the people I have on my friends list are still posting here as if they ever come here, their feed will be filled with nothing but posts from me.

This is, I feel, the most efficient way to see who all is still posting here. If it presents an inconvenience, apologies.

Apr. 18th, 2017 @ 10:21 pm HOLY SHIT THIS ACCOUNT IS ACTIVE ONCE MORE
And on a whim, I've taken to using this old program again.

It is now the year 2017, I am 36 years old, and I am still in the Navy. I am currently in Bahrain.
So much has changed. I've been through a lot, and grown as a person because of the people I've met.

I wonder if anyone is still using this....?

Now that I'm all grown up and living in the future...why is it that I can't stop looking back towards the past with such terrible longing?

Sep. 16th, 2010 @ 08:45 pm Oh hey, this Livejournal thing still works!
Current Location: Sasebo, Japan
Current Mood: contemplativecontemplative

Wow...it strikes me as wonderful that there are still people using this old application! Doesn't make me feel so...outdated? Is that really the word for it?

Well. So much has happened, so much has gone on. Here I am, living in Sasebo, Japan still. I have until 2012 and then I will be out and done with the Navy for good...God willing I'll have saved up enough money to where I won't have to worry about too much when I DO get back, at least until convention season rolls around (oh LAWDY where DOES the money GO!?)


I can only imagine how things have changed since last I walked the soil of America. I've stood in the shadows of the mosques of Brunei; walked through the dusty streets of Surabaya, Indonesia; I've seen all that Pattaya, Thailand has to offer (vortex  you would fucking LOVE that place!); strode through a temple courtyard in Cambodia, and snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I have done so many things, and seen so many things. And every time my ship pulls back into port, I am in Japan. The country I spent almost half of my life dreaming about visiting. I LIVE here...or at least, I'm stationed here.

Oddly enough, I'm getting a little burnt out on Japan. I'm feeling more and more ready to return home to the family I love and the friends I can't live without, because out here I only really have ONE and even then he's nothing like the friends I have back home. It is just so incredibly lonely here. I have never felt more alone in all of my entire life. Even with all of the distractions and diversions, all I feel is alone.

I look forward to the day I can see the smiles of those I care about once more, feel their loving arms embrace me and listen to the stories I have to tell. I look forward to showing everyone just how much of a man I have become, and the lessons I have learned.

Current Location: Sasebo, Japan
Current Mood: crappycrappy
I've been posting on this thing since, like, 2004....wow. Has it really been so long, Livejournal? It feels like only a year or two ago (before I joined the Navy) that I was putting in my account information and getting all of these friends out of nowhere, and everyone was so ACTIVE! Then mySpace came along, and then Facebook...and now look at you, poor little Livejournal.
If mySpace is the ghetto of the internet, then you are the ancient ruins. But I will still haunt you all the same!

IN OTHER NEWS!

Day by day my life in the Navy is feeling less like it did when I first joined and more and more like a bad parody of the timeless movie classic "Brazil". I seriously am trying to not let the military ruin Japan for me, but I will be damned if my command isn't TRYING! Not saying that joining the Navy was a bad idea, but I just wish to all that is holy that they'd sent my ass to Yokosuka like I wanted all along instead of sticking me in the Refuse Bin of the Western Pacific Fleet (that'd be Sasebo, folks).

I've got 10 months, 44 weeks, and a little over 300 days until this nightmare is close to being over. The only way they're probably going to let me pick new orders to get out of here is if I re-enlist...YEAH, RIGHT. Maybe if it's the Reserves, or maybe the National Guard or something. Hell, maybe even the Peace Corps! Anything's better than Tortuga.

Jul. 21st, 2010 @ 01:20 am I need a hug
CAPSLOCK CAPSLOCK CAPSLOCK!

I LIKE HUGGING PEOPLE. IT'S WHAT I DO, IT MAKES ME HAPPY. I LIKE TO SNUGGLE, CUDDLE, AND GENERALLY ACT LIKE A HOUSECAT IN A PERSON'S BODY WHENEVER SOMEONE IS PHYSICALLY INTIMATE WITH ME. I AM AN INCREDIBLY AFFECTIONATE PERSON.

So why can't I get just a simple damn HUG!?

Jul. 6th, 2010 @ 10:54 pm Stuck in Okinawa
Current Location: Okinawa City, Okinawa
Current Mood: discontentdiscontent

So, one day my ship's chaplain decides to play Psychologist and says I'm a "potential danger to myself and/or others". Thus, when we pull into port in Okinawa I have to pack an overnight bag and get sent off with several other people who have actual medical appointments. Upon my first visit to the psychologists at the base, the main question that is asked is "Why the heck are you even HERE?! You're fine!"
But seeing as how the ship had already pulled out before the appointment was over, I had to stay anyways....for TWO WHOLE WEEKS.

The ship never gave any of us a card or anything to use to pay for food or lodging, so up to this writing we've all had to pay for both out of our own pockets. Better believe I'm demanding reimbursement for that nonsense. But I digress. The first barracks hall we were supposed to stay in (for the whole of our stay, apparently) looked like something out of the Soviet-fucking-Union; there was a small wooden stick attatched to the keychain, which I immediatly assumed was to fight off the rats or giant cockroaches to use the shower. The place smelled like an abandoned warehouse and had about just as much mold. Naturally, when they gave us slips of paper saying "We know this isn't up to Marine Corps. standards, but we'll stay here anyways!" we all agreed it was time to tell them to SUCK. IT.

Now, here's the situation: The hospital we all have to go to is on Camp Lester. We were supposed to be staying at Camp Foster. We ended up getting rooms at Kadena Air Force Base, then got shifted over to the Futenma Marine Corps. Air Base, then to an off-base hotel called the Eagle Lodge, AND THEN BACK TO KADENA AGAIN. And still the whole time we were having to pay for the taxis to and from the hospital, to each of the bases we got lodged in, and of course for the rooms on the bases themselves.
During this time I'm told by BOTH of the head psychologists that I'm fine, fit for full duty, and asked again and again just why in the heck my command thought it necessary for me to be here.

So now here I am, possibly flying out tomorrow or the next day back to Sasebo and one more year onboard Tortuga; with a grand total of about $28 in my checking account and quite possibly an even more negative attitude towards the command than I ever had before.
Bitches better give me my reimbursement, or I'm going to go Captain Malcolm Renolds on their asses: 

"Way I see it, y'all be owe'in me quite a sum of money...and I aim to get it."

May. 2nd, 2010 @ 03:04 am WHY DO I KEEP USING THIS?

So here we are, sailing through the sea in some unknown quarter west of the Philippines on our way to Brunei. This'll be my second time visiting the island of Borneo, and I only have one thing to ask you:
JUST HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU KNOW WHO'VE BEEN TO BORNEO TWICE?

I can't help but wonder that not two or so years ago on this day I was kicking around my hometown waiting for the day I flew out to Sasebo, then Singapore to begin a career of several years that would see me visiting more countries in a year than most people get to see in their lives. I'm pretty sure I've missed a lot since I left home, but based on all that I've seen, I would have probably missed out on a lot more if I hadn't finally done this.

That's what I keep telling myself. I HAD to do this. I HAD to. There was just no other way.

You know, I actually think more people might be using MySpace than Livejournal right now. Perhaps I should repeal the EXTERMINATUS and start using it again...?
