      Raven2552

      So this is just a slight rant and rave about applying for a federal job.

      I started my application process back in November, when I took my test for border patrol. I aced it, got a 93. You would think, when the average score is like a 70-something, they'd be beating down my door to get me in, right?

      Nope. Wrong. It takes 8 months to hear anything from them, and then they send me an email saying you need to get this stuff in by the 13th. However, I have not received said stuff so I'm panicking slightly. Then I find out that every number they've provided me goes straight to a voicemail system. CRAP.

      However, after searching for hours, I finally found an email address that they actually check, so hopefully I can get this stuff done in like 4 days.

      But I'm worried I won't. I have been filling out background check info for 6 hours and I'm still not halfway done. When the actual paperwork gets here I am so screwed unless I can talk my mom into helping.

      *Sigh* Someone come help me. Anyone. Please.

      Apparently now my xbox is broken. It won't put any video feed through to my TV at all. And I don't have the money to fix it or to buy a new one. FML. And of course it had to happen now. I honestly feel like just giving up because everything just keeps going wrong.

    • Happy Thanksgiving!

      8 years ago

      Raven2552

      Happy thanksgiving everyone! This is the time of year where I sit back, count my blessings, eat lots of food, and watch the Lions lose. I don't think they have won a single Thanksgiving game in something like 14 years. But I'm thankful for all my friends, family, and all of my blessings. Life has been tough lately, but this is one of those days where I remember how truly blessed I am with a family that loves me, friends who are always there for me, a girlfriend that I love, and a life that takes its knocks, but that always works out in the end.

      Love you guys, now go eat lots of food.

    • Some big decisions coming up

      9 years ago

      Raven2552

      So I'm thinking about making a big change in my life. When I was younger, I made some stupid mistakes and pretty much blew my chance for school. In life today it's really difficult to get by without a degree, so I've been looking at different ideas to help me get one.
      Also, I'm a very physical person, and I'm normally not happy unless I'm working hard and doing stuff that makes me feel good. I miss football, and all the hard work and achievements it entailed. So I've also been looking at jobs that would allow me to do that.
      So here's the thing, I'm thinking about joining the Air Force. It will pay for my school, it's a good paycheck, and with the college I've got under my belt I would be a good candidate for OCS. It's got lots of good jobs, no combat, and the deployments aren't half as bad as the other branches.
      I'm posting this on here for a couple reasons. One, I just wanted to run it by some friends. Two, thoughts, comments, and ideas would be appreciated. So let me know what you think.

      Yeah, that's my randomness for today. Laters.

    • So I almost died... Again

      9 years ago

      Raven2552

      My life is long stretches of good luck punctuated by one large event of bad. In this case the bad was almost dying. Again. But this time it wasn't through a vehicle crash, but almost drowning in some of the toughest rapids in the lower 48.

      My family decided to take a white water rafting trip last week. 2 days on the Arkansas River, class III, IV, V, and V!. Our first day was relatively benign, the class III and IV giving us no problem. The second day, however, was an entirely different story.

      We were shooting Pine Creek, one of the most challenging and dangerous stretches in the US. The first three miles were simple, a repeat of our first day. Thne we rounded the bend and I was greeted by a sight I'll never forget. Waves swelled and crested at over eight feet. The sound of the water filled my ears, punctuated only by the beat of my own heart. We entered the narrow river, the water rushing around us, soaking us as the raft fought its way through the waves.

      As the CFS (Cubic Feet per Second) was only 20 below limit, the water was considered a class V!, the most dangerous type of rapid to attempt. Rocks are hidden, the water is colder, and the waves are higher. Those hidden rocks are what caused my near meeting with the grim reaper. We were forced over a large one, and the raft attempted to flounder. we were told to get high side, to prevent a flip, but unfortunately we weren't fast enough. The boat started to tilt, and I was thrown against the rock, my back impacting with ferocious force. I fell int o the eddy, which is an area where the water rushes back in to fill the void left by the flowing current.

      I went under, the raging water forcing it's way into my mouth, nose, and eyes. I forced myself to the surface, and as I crested the water, I sucked in an. large breath of air, fuilling my aching lungs. I forced myself to gain my bearings, spotting the raft floating away from me quickly, caught in the inexorable current. I forced my legs beneath me, bracing them against the rock, and throwing myself back into the current. The raft was almost 100 yards away, and I forced my aching limbs to fight through the 39 degree water to reach it. When I reached it, the water had scuked all strength from me, and I was hauled uncerimoniously over the side.

      I collpased, unable to twist, the muscles in my back damaged from the impact with the rock and the fight upstream. Went to the hospital. Final diagnosis. Three craked ribs, and some very severe deep muscle bruises.

      Well, That's my story, hope you enjoyed it,

      Mind if I add something to the story? As in when we get to the Savanah, that the ONI officer is actually my characters sister-in-law that had been married to his dead brother and is almost literally like a sister to him.

      Leo made a char sheet. I told him to send it to you first. Also, I got a request from a random person to join the group. Don't know if he has any experience, but I'll ask.

      Sorry, I had already fallen asleep. xP I'm feeling much better today, but I'm traveling. I was supposed to be yesterday, but it snowed pretty hardcore, and there was black ice everywhere. So I decided to wait. xD; I missed my Sister's 18th birthday, though. -_- So anyway, my point is, I probably can't talk tomorrow either. I'll call you as soon as I can.
