I have had 8 years of duty on ships so that is good, I am missing a very important role of Leading Petty Officer at Sea so I am thinking this might hurt me a little bit. I have continuously been involved in the commands that I am at and involved in the community which is important. I do not have tons of college complete and this could hurt me, and I haven't been ranked against peers in the past 2 years so we will see the outcome.
If I do not get selected for promotion I have plenty of things that will keep me busy so I will not have time to be bummed for to long.
I need to take my English 1302 :-) and complete alot of training for Air Intercept Control Catch-up qualifications (which I am currently working on) I also want to do a little island hopping.
The DICK EVANS MEMORIAL ROAD RACE (112 miles) is on SEPT 6th and I will be training for that race. The following day Sept 7th is the WAIKIKI ROUGHWATER SWIM (2.4 miles) and I want to train more for that.
Also, There is another LAVAMAN Triathlon on the Big Island the following weekend Sept 13th and I would love to go and participate in that with my friends. These events are things that I don't know if I will be able to particpate in if I am busy with Chief "Induction" which is totally fine. I will be happy either way, it is just the anticipation that is killing me.
