MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #2

Tell us about your dream job… one that you could do regardless of pay.

I’d be an astronaut in a heartbeat.  Alas, it is unlikely that anyone will walk up to me and hand me an application.

What is your most prized material possession (kids and pets don’t count!)?

I live on my computer.  *pets her MacBook*  My wedding and engagement rings are pretty special, too.

What has been your favorite duty station and why?

I love where we are (Virginia) right now.  We’re close to family, and we’re most emphatically not in South Texas anymore.

What is your least favorite household chore?

I’m not crazy about cleaning bathrooms, but I really hate mopping.  Luckily, my husband doesn’t mind mopping, so I have someone on which to pawn off that chore when he’s around.

If you could give one piece of advice to a teenager today (not specifically a MilTeen), what would it be?

The Internet is forever.  Be careful what you put on Facebook, because that thing you did at that party that was totally hilarious to you and your friends?  Probably not so funny to Aunt Hortense… or your future employer.  Don’t think that your privacy settings will shield you from all potential fallout, either: even if you’re as conscientious as can be, all it takes is one of your friends forgetting to log out (or worse, forwarding something without your knowledge or consent) and all of a sudden a whole crowd of unintended people have access to your information.

Want to play?  Hie thee to ENS Wifey’s blog, snag the questions, and add yourself to the Mr. Linky for this week’s MilSpouse Friday Fill-In!

  1. I’m hoping that one day my hubs will be stationed in Virginia. He’s at Ft. Meade right now as a government contractor (he’s ANG), but he’s working on active duty orders that will hopefully take us to Ft. Belvoir.

    Great answers!

    • My husband and I are Virginians by birth, so we’re a wee bit biased towards the Old Dominion. 🙂 Ft. Belvoir seemed like a nice installation; my college roommate married my husband’s Academy roommate there last fall.

  2. I didn’t even think of that advice but it so incredibly true! I used to beg my mom to send me to space camp after that movie came out. lol

    • I may even get a chance to impart my curmudgeonly Facebook advice to a bunch of young whippersnappers if I give a tech brief to our Civil Air Patrol cadets. Actually, come to think of it, those are probably the kind of kids who would be equally excited by the prospect of space camp. (Who am I kidding? I’d totally participate in spite of my ostensible adulthood.)

  3. Wifey says:

    Virginia would be amazing! But ya’ll have to check out the Pacific Northwest, too 😉

    Thanks for participating. And you crack me up by calling me ENS Wifey.

    • Thank you for providing the questions! I must admit that I kind of crack myself up by calling you ENS Wifey. I look forward to the day I can promote your nickname to LTJG Wifey. 😉

      I’d love to visit the Pacific Northwest sometime — I have quite a few friends of both the RL and online varieties up there. With my husband’s platform, I’m not sure orders would ever take us up there. Who knows, though? Anything (well, the sort of “anything” that has a lot more to do with considerations other than our own logic) is possible with the Navy.

  4. Great answers! An astronaut huh? You go girl. And I almost put my computer as my most prized possession! Seriously, I don’t know if I could go a whole day without it. And great advice to teens. There was no internet when I was in high school, but I can only imagine how crazy my life would have been with FB and Twitter and uTube. Life was so simpler back then. Kinda makes me dread my children’s teenage years.

    Hope you had a wonderful 4th!!!!

    • Thanks! We had a very nice (and much-needed) long weekend, and now things are going to rocket into the crazy-busy realm again. Hope you and your family enjoyed yourselves, too!
