I have joined the United States Navy

Today, I affirmed the United States oath of enlistment and officially joined the United States Navy.  I am currently set to ship out in December, but that could change in the coming days, weeks, or months.  I don’t have much to write, suffice it to say that I’m a bit tired after a long day of tests, paperwork, and medical examinations.

    What made you decide to do this after studying biochem?

  3. Meng Bomin says:

    To be honest, by the end of my time at college, I’d lost a lot of my initial enthusiasm for biochem. I was halfheartedly looking at grad school or medical school, but I didn’t really feel much passion for either option. Obviously nuclear power is a much different animal than biochemistry, but I think I’ll get to use my math skills a bit more and I’ll have more of a life direction.

  4. Congratulations

  5. I know it’s a year late, but congratulations! As one who use to sail the seven seas, I know you’ll enjoy your time out there. All my best!
