and in that package was something that i wanted to read about. It is something that i have always thought would make for an interesting future, it is a package from the u.s. coast gaurd. I have always had a love for the water, and this would be a good way for me to escape this place and go somewhere a little more exotic. and plus i need to be by water, that is something that i have really missed. water. what is it about water that gives me goosebumps all over? I don't know, its just the thrill i get when i am in or near it that i love. I have had a lot of bad experiences in water, and have nearly died several times at its hands, but that will never stop me or hold me back. but the more that i read about the coast gaurd, the less time i have to make a decision. i have less than a year, i can't be over 22 to join. so, we'll see if i join or not. well, thats all for today for the most part, i think that i am going to sign off and start getting ready for church. have a merry christmas, i don't know when i will be back online again, Darin.
