Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t accomplish your dreams, show them you can and you will, no matter how long it takes ! Your dreams are places in your heart for a reason - Semper Fidelis ✊

Can we please give a shout out to all the brave women who serve our country and to the women that want to follow in their footsteps #orahh

“ Happy birthday Marines. Over the course of 240 years, we have fought and won our nation’s battles. We have made ourselfs known across the globe, striking fear in our enemies into what is know today as the world’s finest fighting force. For 240 years, we have eaten, slept fought and bled together to protest the country we love. We are the U.S Marine Corps and today is our birthday. Semper Fidelis ” ( U.S Marine Corps photo by Sgt Matthew J. Bragg ) I have permission to post this picture !

You pissed in my Cheerios, miss. You did. And Cheerios, along with Chef Boyardee and other things, are fucking sacred you know… No. You don’t know.

Here’s what I’m not going to do- I’m not going to take a Xanax.

Here’s what I am going to do- I’m going to leave this here for every active duty, reservist or other Marine, Poolee and Veteran of any branch of the United States Military to see what kind of person you are and what kind of prospective member of the military you are.

This all began very calmly and civil, it was you that caused the escalation of force. You, who believes you are entitled to things you are not. You are not entitled or fit, or rate to be represented, or to represent those four letters, miss, and if you produce someone who thinks you are, I’ll show you someone who needs to have their moral compass re-calibrated. 

You and people like you are one of the biggest reasons I’m leaving. Because you and yours snake and slither your way through the cracks and corrupt the very values and ethical foundations our institution was built upon. So if this blog ever has any effect, I hope this makes its way to someone who will keep you from reaching (much less passing through) the gates of San Diego or Paris Island. As for me, I’m done here. Two days from now, you’ll be someone else’s problem. 

On the other hand- I’m secretly hoping you make it and earn an EGA. Because then the Green Weenie will exact my revenge for me (figuratively, of course). 

So, you see… either way- I win. 

P.S. Come back on or around February 25th, and I’ll tell you what I really think about you. 

Major Changes

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to give a quick life update on some upcoming changes. At the beginning of the year, I enlisted into the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program. In three weeks, I will be shipping out to Parris Island, South Carolina, for bootcamp. 

For thirteen weeks I will be away from tumblr. I might set up a queue during the months I’m away, but I haven’t totally made up my mind yet. Hopefully, I’ll return to Modern Hepburn at the end of August. 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. My inbox is now completely cleared.

Hope you’re enjoying your Monday,

Torie
