“The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.
Today my tea said,
“May this day bring you peace, tranquility and harmony.”

For a Monday it started off just like how you would think a Monday would start. Things were a mess, batteries weren’t charged and it was storming! Now I did enjoy the rain, I just didn’t like my work jacket soaking it up. That was my fault though because I forgot my rain jacket. Overall though it turned out to be a pretty decent day and I kept reminding myself that my day would bring me peace and harmony.
“If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee.”

I think of every Veterans day as a time to relive the memories I have had in the U.S Navy. I love to reflect on what I learned, the family I made and the memories that I will always cherish. There were times where I wanted to give up and just get of the Navy, but I pushed through them and became the woman I am today. I am thankful for everyone I have met on this journey so far and I can’t wait to see what’s still in store for me. Seven years down, many more to go! Thank you to all my brothers and sisters who I have had the honor of serving with.

Something new I learned at work today…
Did you know, that a cast saw uses vibrations to cut instead of spinning like a regular saw? I sure didn’t. When I saw the casting technician turn on the saw and run it across her hand I was a little surprised. I know casting saws don’t cut through skin, but I wasn’t sure how they actually prevented that. When the tech told me it was the vibrations that caused the saw to cut through the fiberglass, I became more curious. So I read some articles on it, and watched her do another cast removal. If you’re still curious on how it works or want to watch a video, click the button below. Thanks for reading about my random bit of knowledge!
