i dont know if i told you before i left but i got a new job. it’s pretty much the same to everybody at home - i still drive a ship, but this particular ship lays cable… and instead of carrying cargo from point a to point b, we are slowly traveling across the ocean paying out miles of fiber optic cable that will connect countries and improve communication around the world. so that’s what i’m up to - that and sweating my balls off. we are currently laying cable from qatar to saudi arabia, and the persian gulf in july/august is fucking stupid hot.

my best friend Joey is a merchant marine and he’s hilarious

he’s also got a really cool job, as he is literally connecting countries to our precious information superhighway
