My Ship

I saw my ship today.

It was one of the most beautiful things I'd ever seen.

I saw it pushed sideways to the pier by tugs and I got to go on board and see how big it really was. The well deck is massive inside. The MA office was small, but there's only like 8 of us, so its no big deal. I met my bosses, all of which seem very awesome. I entered through the port side hangar bay and only got to see a few parts of the ship, and I can't wait to stand duty and patrol the whole thing. It was so big, I think its one of the largest things I've ever seen.

I report for my first workday (really just check-in, but I have duty on Saturday) tomorrow, and I can't wait.
