In more boring SWE news I got a 70, tho ther OS3 to the surprise of a lot of loving people (including myself) scored a bit better. Also the average raw score for OS2 last may was 59, the only other rate with a tied low score was FS2.

I feel ashemed of my rate...
Edit: I also should have studied more

Is the coast guard different than the other branches, in any substantial way? I have a friend that is enlisted and he makes it seem rather...chill. He doesn't exactly have anything to compare it to, however, since he went in straight from high school.

The DCIO program looks pretty nice, and I'd qualify for it after graduating.

Ok I will give a serious answer too because now I look like a dick.

DCIO is a great way to get in as an officer, which you may as well since you've got a degree unless you're dead set on something enlisted folks do. The CG is rather chill in that it's generally smaller more close knit units.

Welp, Morgan City looks not so likely due to the quals I have just not being needed there. Port Arthur apparently has 4 billets and definitely could use me. Oh joy. The wife will be absolutely thrilled about a 2 hour move due east into an area full of refineries!

Done freaking out about it for the moment. Wife is heavily drunk at the moment so that's her way of coping for the night. Just gonna hope for the best and prep for the worst.

Nice man-congrats! You're not raining on anyone's parade-I'm just realizing the detailer process for officers is quite a bit different then enlisted. I'll get over it.

I've only read a couple stories, but it seems like one guy getting hammered (rightfully so) when it should probably be a lot of people getting hammered for it. I know even at Canal/SSENE there was an overall desire to keep that kinda poo poo under wraps.

My favorite thing was when there was some drama and a girl was keeping a notebook on all the bullshit and the command said "It's illegal to write notes down like that" and made her throw it away. People at the station couldn't understand how wrong that was. Ugh.

Its amazing how quick the gold badge would jump on that with a quick EAP phone call. Something has stired up the gold badge nest about that poo poo up here in AK and it would be interesting to know what it was exactly.

Yup, saw that article the other day and laughed my rear end off. Anyone that knew him well should be completely unsurprised.


Re: note taking, though it's not illegal people that write down every time they're offended by someone are the loving worst and I really wish an early death on all of them. if it's legit poo poo that's cool but if some guy is bein a butthole then shove him down some stairs or put your dick in his butt to establish dominance w/e

I wrote this part when I was intensely drunk but I still agree with what I said, writing poo poo down without ever going to the command and just firebombing the old man's inbox with weird rear end anonymous letters or a list of so-called grievances is mincy fairy bullshit and instead you should put a bullet in it


not saying anyone here would do it, but I saw it a couple of times and it was always the most odious fuckin bullshit

She was tracking poo poo like sexual comments said to her and poo poo, so it was mostly legit. And really off color racial remarks as well as the OIC peerving on her while she worked out and poo poo. I always said "take notes, but remember that every single thing you write can and will be evidence...and if you write something down that someone can prove is wrong, you lose all credibility."
