I really should become an import model for Jamba Juice. Look at how happy I am drinking that Aloha Pineapple smoothie. Endorse me, Jamba Juice! I’ll promise to leave the Navy after 6 years if you need me to!
Just found that I could’ve gone to Comic Con for free this year because my cousins always go for free because their dad was in the Navy and his CO knows people and they always give him passes and my uncle gives them to his kids. Turns out that they always have extra passes and if they had known that I wanted to go, they would’ve given me a pass and let me stay at their house and the only thing I had to pay for was a plane ticket.
The closer I get to my ship date, the more and more I feel fortunate for my friends and family who have supported me through and through. Leaving them will be my biggest obstacle but I’m going to Great Lakes for myself, so I’m going to have to get over it.
I first encountered the identity of “queer” as a first year in college. I attended a meeting for one of the Filipino organizations on campus, and one of the coordinators introduced his program as a “space for queer Filipinos.” I was surprised to hear that term.
