Congratulation, the only thing I still remember after more than 30 years have passed is:
"The sea is selective, slow at recognition of effort and aptitude but fast at sinking the unfit."
If they are not still teaching that, they should as the big blue sea does not care what you think and you better respect her. There are no resets, no do overs and saying your sorry won't matter. You only have yourself and your shipmates to turn to when things go south. Never stop learning as this is a profession not a career and if you think you know it all, we know you must still be a fresh Third with the ink still wet on your license.
Everyone's comments are great enjoy your summer. If you have the drive and desire you are in for the best ride of a lifetime where you have the opportunity to see and do things you can not explain to those who have not been there.
Thank God that we have something to talk about other than KP's woes.
