additional info: I am a Psychological Operations Specialist in the US Army Reserves, currently deployed in Baghdad, Iraq. I have been in country for about three weeks. This is my war journal. I used to be "hateoracle" on LJ and before that I was "soulessflame". I haven't written for a long time, but I'm forcing myself to get back into it.
I worked in residential education throughout college at San Diego State University (resident adviser and similar jobs), graduated in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice Administration. I worked a couple non-profit jobs right after. First, as a child care worker... ran a pod of 8 boys at a group foster home. After that, I was a behavioral tutor at an academy for autistic children.
I am extremely sarcastic/cynical/introverted. Throw in a pinch of agnosticism and a whole lot of continuous searching for self-actualization, and you'll have an idea of what I'm about.
I've made some great friends off LJ years ago. I'm hoping I can do the same this time around.
