Launching a Store!

Hi, Everyone!

I've gotten some requests to make mugs, t-shirts, and posters based on my Awesome Facts About The Coast Guard posts! So, in response, I opened a store on Zazzle, and you can now purchase from a (growing) selection of items based on my comics! If you hurry, there's a today-only sale on all Zazzle products!

Five MORE Awesome Facts About the Coast Guard

The Coast Guard is a misunderstood service. We get called water police, shallow-water sailors, or puddle pirates. And while all of those are accurate, they’re not the whole story.

Those of you who read my original post – Five Awesome Facts About The Coast Guard – may recall that the Coast Guard is one of the five branches of the U.S. military. It’s responsible for a variety of important jobs, ranging from maritime law enforcement, to drug interdiction, to search and rescue, to maintaining buoys and lighthouses.

It’s left us with a lot on our plates.
In the end, though, doing all of these different jobs has made the Coast Guard into a very versatile service. It’s given us the opportunity to go a lot of places and play a lot of roles most people don’t expect. Whether we're heading into a raging storm or dangerous combat zone, we'll go wherever it takes to get the job done.

To give you some examples, I made another list.

Job Searching

To some extent, searching for a job requires you to be a sociopath. You have to be willing to act as though every opportunity presented to you is the one you've been waiting your whole life to fill.

This is a bad economy. There may be a lot of job openings, but businesses aren't actually filling them. If you’re unemployed, if you just finished school, or if you decided to change careers at exactly the wrong moment – even if you’re a great employee whose résumé doesn't rely heavily on that time you found two quarters in your couch – you might be waiting a very long time before someone hires you.
