Semi-Interesting, Non-Sappy

I am in a non-sappy mood right now and would like to share some things. A lot of people ask me what I do for work and I have yet to find a good answer to that. I do a lot of different things and only do the same thing for 6 months at a time, but right now I'm working on a project that approves acquisition of programs for the Dept. of the Navy. Its kind of interesting because I get to learn a lot about the different aspects of each program. At the end of the assessments we go up to the Pentagon and brief the Secretary of the Navy...that should be pretty cool. I'm currently working on the assessment for the Fire Scout, which is this pretty sweet little UAV made by Northrup Grumman. That sweet little orb on the front of it is the other program that I'm working on which is called Brite Star. I think its pretty cool and I never realized that I was such a Navy nerd, but I am. I'm coming to turns.

Happy 27th Birthday to my friend Seanie Hams. I just got some good news from him. He and his fiancee are getting married on October 28th. I'm super excited for them both and wish them a lifetime of happiness together.

Don't have much exciting going on this weekend (my weekend starts at 5 tonight-hooray for compressed work schedules!) I'm (possibly) going to a softball game tonight, a movie tomorrow and a 10 mile run on Saturday. That's about it. Nothing too exciting, but at least I'm getting out a little bit.

I've got some plans for keeping myself busy too. Grad school starts up again soon (wish I hadn't taken the summer off for wedding planning-there'd probably be a wedding if I had) and I think I'm going to start volunteering my time at the Humane Society. I think that will be good for me. I also need to dig out my camera. There are so many beautiful scenes around my neck of the woods that I should be capturing somewhere besides my brain.

Very cool NAVY girl, NAVY always rocked in my world, but I grew up in the element.

I LURVE Annapolis, you know why (wink, wink).
