Wow, I haven't posted on here in a long-ass time. It looks like the last time I did, I was off to college. I can't believe it was that long ago...especially since what's happened between them. Well, I did my first year of college at Westfield State University in MA, and it was a good experience. I met some great people, both young and old, and still have some strong connections with the great professors over there. However, after finishing up my freshman year there, I realized that college wasn't where I wanted to be at this point in my life. I wanted to feel like I was making a difference, and when your an 18 year old kid trying to live on a shoestring budget and put yourself through college, it just makes matters that much more difficult. I'm happy to say that while I was there, I took my academics very seriously, finishing off with full marks in all my courses for the year. I also got to enjoy the lighter aspects of college life, such as drinking in excess, sex in excess, and drunken sex in excess. Also, covering my entire campus with chalk 8-bit grafitti overnight is something I will remember forever (thanks to Kyle and Brett: it wouldn't have happened that big without you guys.)
Now however, I'm turning the page onto the next chapter. Near the beginning of the summer, I enlisted into the United States Navy as an Information Systems Technician, or IT for short. I had put a lot of thought and research into careers, pay, and future prospects before even approaching a recruiter. Because of this, I was able to confidentally go into my recruiting station for the first time and tell the men exactly what I wanted from them. They were great all the way through, and I got the job that I wanted (after I proved my worth with a 96 on my ASVAB test).
I am currently waiting for my departure on January 19 of next year. I'll be going to Naval Station Great Lakes, situated in North Chicago, Illinois for what are sure to be the most grueling eight weeks of my life. After that, it's off to a year and a half of schooling at the Naval Air Station Pensacola, located in beautiful and balmy Florida. Until then, I'm doing everything I can to prepare for basic. This includes the Insanity workout DVD's, a strict diet, and constant studying of Naval proceedures and policies. It's tough, but it will all be worth it when the dumb sack of shit next to me is doing push-ups for not saluting his superiors while I did.
I mostly want to put this on Newgrounds because I don't know when the next time I'll be able to drop on again will be. I'm sure that after basic, I'll be able to brig my laptop with me to my schooling. However, it may have limited access and such, being on a secure facility.
I'd like to thank all of the artists who have contributed their work to this site over the past decade. Newgrounds was such a vital part of my childhood, and it's wide variety of material and influences helped make me the young man that I am today. While that may sound a bit dramatic, I can assure you that it entirely what I mean. The vast array of themes and ideas convoluted into this endless Portal helped me understand how amazing, bizarre, confusing and beautiful the world can really be. The diverse subject matter - from cock jokes and cream cheese sandwiches onto mindless killing sprees and thoughtful fables - have shown me the many faces of human emotion and expression. They've opened up my mind, heightened my sense of the world around me, and made me want to seize it hungrily. So for all of the games and movies, literature and music, blogs and live streaming sessions...
Thank you for everything, guys.
P.S. If this does get updated in over two years, I was probably killed by a ballistic missile...or died of scruvy.
