Promotion!! (and nervousness) :S
I Am Clever
Last night at cadets was a bit of a surprise - I (and one of my friends) got promoted!! Now I'm a QPO1, which stands for Qualified Petty Officer First Class (the picture of the badge is below.).

I'm so happy, but also really nervous. There's a big exam coming up in 3 weeks, and I have to pass it in order to be promoted any higher than I am now. Pray for me.

Another thing that's cool about being his rank is that within 3 years, it will no longer exist. The Powers That Be who are in charge of running Canadian Sea Cadets training decided to change it, as no other cadet organization or the Navy has a "Qualified" rank. The last time it was changed was 10 or 11 years ago, when the rank of QPO2 was taken out. (Rank badge picture below.)
