don't know when you will ever see this but by now you made it past basic, tech school and should be at your 1st duty station. lots of things changed since you went in. you got to be a part of that history. congrats. go on as many tdy's as you can. live it up! save your money, see the world, keep a journal but don't read it til you get out or retire. take pictures, stay outta north dakota (no matter what they say) and don't say you'll get it on the next trip or tdy because you may never get to go back so get it now.
we fought and suffered so that 1 day you can serve as you wish. make us proud.
oh and i saw your photo comment. I'm kind of use to wearing corsets so i don't feel any shortness of breath. I tighten mine as tight as i can but I'm not a tight lacer. The only time it is uncomfortable is if you yawn while sitting or bend over or break one of the basic corset rules. I make corsets so I tend to wear ones meant for my body in specific so that helps.
Hola... Well I have tighten my corset to the point where I began to have short breathes, and sort of got used to it. I had thought about getting into tight lacing (the extreme way & lifestyle of wearing a corset), but it's not really healthy for the body. So I mostly wear them for fun :), even though I wear the heavy duty ones with steal boning. I just love the way they look.
i can understand you not friending any random person. yeah i have heard of Cathie Jung. I'm not a tightlacer like her though. like watching really badly made scary movies with low budgets. I found a bunch of them online and couldn't stop watching. what other things are you into?
