Well I'm taking this moment vent a bit. I've lately really come to have a harder and harder time to deal with my career. Here's my conundrum, I am an engineering officer in the Merchant Marines and I work a schedule of 3 months at sea, and 3 months vacation at home. Since I graduated from the academy the lack of female presence in my life had always been a bit of a downer. The older I get the more bitter I think I become. I know where the comments are going to go from here, yes I am a "sailor" am all to familiar with all the jokes that I'm sure are going to follow. I just needed to complain and since I'm heading out to sea at the moment there is no one to talk to lol. So now for the real important questions: Which do you prefer, cake or pie?
