Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

It's not really hard to think of what I'll be doing in 2020. My life, for the most part, is already set up to a certain point, and I feel accomplished to not have to really worry about where life may take me, and whether or not I'll be able to support a family.

When 2020 rolls around, I'll have about a year left of my mandatory service to the U.S. Air Force, coming to the tail end of my ten year contract as a pilot. At this point, I'll either call it quits and retire, move onto something bigger, or stay in ten more years and even out at twenty, for pension's sake!

By the time all of this rolls around, I will have been around the world, having visited many unique places, learned an insurmountable amount about myself, my life, and technical trade-skills that will be with me the rest of my life, met countless contacts, and expanded my education to include a master's degree in international relations, probably. I am a firm believer in the globalization of the world that is slowly pulling all six...well seven...continents together. We must strive to be one as a human race to further end the suffering and needless killing that haunts many peoples today.

With the knowledge, tools, and social circles combined, I am confident that I will be knee-deep in making the world a better place, not just for my children and grandchildren, but for those that share the same earth as I do. Though I have chosen the military career, there really is nothing that warms my heart more than the prospect of complete globalization, and a world made many different people, with the same ideas in mind: justice, freedom, and prosperity to everyone.

It sounds like you know exactly where you're headed -- good luck! I really hope you achieve all this :)

You're really doing something special. To be honest I'm a bit gelous. I wish I had that much adventure in my life. Anyway I wish you all the best for the future.

As someone who was briefly in the military and ended up leaving and pursuing other paths in life, know that you can never truly predict the future.

However, it is very honorable to choose that life, and I wish you the best of luck.

I bet if feels great to have direction in life and a pretty close idea of what your future holds. Many people don't even know what the next hour holds so I would feel very lucky. It is important to think about your future, this makes you decide on direction and subconsciously commit to your decisions. This works for most anything; projects, design, etc. the simple creation of an outline forms a certain amount of commitment. Regardless of planning the future always has tricks for us, PLAN for these as well or at least try. Great post!

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
