Was alcohol involved? Maybe but I don't think it affected the final outcome! Ha Ha

Now would be the time to do something like work on a ship. Once you get settled in somewhere, get a boyfriend, dog, home, etc. you are pretty much unable to do something like that. I bought my first home when I was 23 and I kind of wish I'd have done some interesting things BEFORE I got all settle in. To be honest, I wanted to join the Peace Corp when I was in my early 20's.

Yeah Cinder. Carpe diem. When I was your age I worked for a professional racing team and traveled all over North America meeting many of my lifetime heroes, working side by side with many of them. Not the sort of thing one can do when you are attached.

Though I would caution about the cruise line option. That many sardines packed in a tin can spells nothing but trouble.

And last , and I said I was going to do it and here is my proof . Did not stick around very long as everyone on the beach stopped and started staring us down like we were driving a tank or something & saw a few cell phones come out so I knew they were calling the cops but I drove a 4 wheeler on the beach at oak island , which would be about the same as carrying a UZI in DC or NYC .

We really are all born wild.

We need to be properly socialized in order to operate effectively in society, just like wolves and dogs. Some people don't get the proper socialization and it is painfully obvious when they attempt to interact with others.

I had my first Instrument flight today. Things are starting to get tough in my little aviation world. It is harder in the aircraft than in the simulator. Radio calls are also difficult.

Well some people just dont care to FIT in and some dont care if others look down their noses at them and then there are those who just dont give * .
Its not that they dont know better '' yes some may not '' but for the majority , just choose to be and act different

I fit into those 3

What? Cinder going to work on a cruise ship? Those Swabbies will never get any work done with Cinder on the Ship!!!;-) and we can forget about seeing her HERE that much. Cell service on a cruise ship is as expensive as a penguin Beak!!!
Maybe some Day she will be Ch. Engine Mech. And take the right tests and she could become a Cruise Ship
