Default What Was Awesome About Today?

Post the shite that made your day. Little things to bragging.

Here's mine:

For those who DON'T know, I'm an active-durty Navy photojournalist and broadcast journalist. My last command was doing photojournalism for a specific unit of Navy engineers and construction workers, known as "Seabees." II left them in May and had been deployed to eastern Africa, where were doing all sorts of humanitarian work.

I finally checked the online copy of Seabee Magazine, a quartly publication that showcases the Naval Contruction Force globally. Since that was my job at my previous command and I flooded ever single one of our outlets with so many photos, the magazine is SWAMPED with my work!

Seabee Magazine Summer 2009 (link)

Cover: My photo
Index Pg. 2: Photo caption
Pg. 3: My old command, NMCB 11's feature block
Pg. 4: The "intro" story with two photos
Pg. 5: Comoros story with a photo and a second photo from Djibouti
Pg. 6: Ethiopia with photo
Pg. 7: Cameroon (Not my story or photos, but good to see my boys in there!)
Pg. 8: Djibouti with two photos
Pg. 9: Uganda story by my friend Dustin and a photo by an Air Force lady. Top photo is mine.
Pg. 23: Not my story or photo, but it's my guys in the Middle East amd how one ran into his dad on their deployments!
Pg. 24: Another cool story about out guys, this one in Afghanistan
Pg. 25: Another photo of mine published (Comoros)
Pg. 37: Some not-so-exciting "mug shots" I took with nice quotes from my old 'Bees.
Back Cover: My photo and friend PLASTERED with Ugandan kids for the world to see.

...wow. This makes it feel like all that work finally paid off.

How did I forget THAT? Tonight I'm going read some of my friend's story, relax with a bottle of wine and unwind after my trek.

Wow... congrats on having so many of your pictures published all at once, Erick! Good work, definitely.


Well it's only 4 AM, but since my schedule's so far off after finals anyways, I may as well write about Thursday.
I moved out of my dorm room, but since my mom's visiting I really just switched to a hotel down the street and stuck a ton of stuff in storage. But the hotel she chose has every room decorated or painted by a different artist -- by luck of the draw, we got the Shepard Fairey room.

They entire room's covered with work from his Obey series. It's incredible.
I had my friend Andrew with me when I found out -- and I didn't find out until I was there, since my mother didn't know who the artist was. We both kind of took a few minutes to snap pictures and fangirl over it.

What made my day today was simply just relaxing and watching Phantom of the Opera in peace and quiet at 1 AM

Finally waking up in my comfy bed again, and being able to sleep as long as I want was pretty much everything to me...
