To answer a few questions, I was a 68G, an aircraft structural engineer for 4 years. I held the equivalent of an Airframe and powerplants license, or
A&P in the army, my school was the longest besides intel- it was 26 weeks long.. I loved it AND hated it at the same time, it was boring for me, I
wanted action, not to be holed up in some hangar for the rest of my military career. I consider Girl power, me holding a big pneumatic riveter and
being able to stay level on the ground, those things have some kick
I had to work on damaged UH-1, Blackhawk COBRA and Chinook helicopters. I repaired damaged tail and rotor blades, as well as structural integrity,
basically, I fixed the bullet holes in the side of them. I also had to build J-stringers and bulkheads, which are the internal skeleton, if made in
small scale, make wonderful ashtrays. I have the ability of telling you what temperature Alclad skins are poured at, and exactly what the corrosion
resistance is for them, but as exciting as metalurgy sounds, I won't bore you...
When that tour was over, I changed my MOS, and went where the action was, I became a 95 B, MP. Not only did I get to use my brains but I got to drive
really cool toys, like deuce and a halfs, cut-v's and hummers-my equivalent of a life sized barbie vette. I had to qualify with a 9mm pistol, SAW,
machine gun, and the likes. I also had friends that were WO's(Warrent Officers,) who flew My partner in crime and I, in their Blackhawk, to a lot of
the specialty details we had. Not bad for a SpecialistI made it to E-5 when all was said and done, and I never lost my rank.(cool thing about being
an MP is, you OUTRANK all
I got to do alot of PR, I got to escort the Golden Knights everywhere they went I was trained in POW detainment, as well as EPW detainment. My unit
is actually in the prison right now.(AbuGhraib)53 and a wake up boys! One received the purple heart, and other than that, everyone is alive and
My ex was VERY threatened by me, and TBH most of the guys I have dated have all been threatened. . I play pool, (actually Aug 27th, I came home.My
team of 8 went to Vegas to compete in the APA National Championships,which is the superbowl of pool, and we came in 33rd out of about 850 other teams
from all over the country. ) and once I started beating him, he'd throw tantrums because he was getting beat by a girl. He'd gloat like a fiend if
he whooped my rear, but god forbid I should win.
I also had an extremely jealous boyfriend that told me I was nothing until I met him, and when I left him, I would be nothing, well lets see, I am in
a great relationship, have a wonderful child, own my own company, and have an honorable discharge, hmmm... lets see here. Boy I'm really doing
Needless to say, I left him about a month after that and I met my guy.
(He actually threatened to shoot me in the foot once, because I was called to duty Sept,11th and we were getting deployed, and I refused to quit- I
was a hard core soldier-now I'm a hardcore Mommy!)
For kicks, I decided to teach myself HTML, and learned it in about 6 hours. The next night I decided to learn the entire Macromedia suite, and I did.
I gave myself a 2 year college education, in about a week. I now launched my own company, Triple Threat Graphics. Try as I might, the A&P field
just was not for me..
The woman in me still dictates my fashion sense, when it comes to actually getting dressed up for the 4 times a year that I do it, mostly funerals,
weddings, christmas and thanksgiving. Most times, people don't recognize me, the phrase most commonly heard is "Wow, Don't YOU clean up nice!" I
also have a thing for shoes and silver jewlery, hate bling, I'll lose it anyways, and I can tell the difference btween a knockoff prada and the real
I feel very lucky to have guy friends, I enjoy their company immensely, and will quickly dismiss any guy I am dating if he's threatened that I have
male friends-they were there first, I will only date men who are secure enough to know, that if I am going home with them, than that's all that
matters, and I don't cheat, I'm a serial monogamist Sometimes I think their threatened by the fact that I am almost a spy, and theyre worried that
I'll catch on to their tricks. The alphabet is a wonderful one BTW.
I also don't get jealous, why should I waste my time wrapped up in worrying and trying to prevent, what's going to happen regardless of what you
do. Another thing wrong with both sides, Women are more apt to do this though.
One of my biggest pet peeves are these people who freak out calling every 20 seconds wanting to know who your with, where youre going, what your
doing, and then wonder why everything happened the way it did.
The philosophy is, they should feel great knowing that others still find them attractive... Those are also the types of guys I steer clear of
anyways, they don't like my type, simply because my iq is a lot higher than my bra size.
