But then I found out that they were being attached to another company, getting sent up to Ft. Snellings, Minnesota, and are being deployed with them to Iraq. And with the build up of the forces over there, I kinda saw it coming. And honestly, I kinda wanted to go.
But I may still get my chance anyway.
The other company in the building (The 379th Chem) is so damned close to being deployed, it's not close to being funny. But they're not at full strength, so that means they'll pull people from the 342nd. And the strength they are supposed to be at, it'll mean they'll pull pretty much everyone in the 342nd.
So right now, my chances of *not* being deployed are roughly about the chances of me winning the lottery. However, life will continue on. And until it does happen, I've got school, work, and other things.
But if I do get deployed, it'll probably be within the next four months, and it'll be for about six. That means my next birthday will probably be celebrated in a completely different continent, and NextCon will be out of the question. (Sorry guys.) Plus I have to set up some stuff to make sure things get done while I'm not here. (Make webpage to put up on the homepage while I'm gone, fill in STotW for X amount of time, set up the regular comics to be picked-up while I'm gone from Tenth Planet, and a certain LJ community might get a new maintainer. :P)
Your Livejournal Analasys
Your Livejournal's Age
According to the information you provided, your Livejournal was created on 2002-05-27, meaning that your journal has been around for 228 days. What does this mean?
You are in a fairly common group, with an LJ age of 6 months to 1 year. There's a decent chance that by now you are experiencing some kind of journal burnout, and may be less enthusiastic about the whole thing as you used to be. Perhaps you post less often than you used to, spend less time reading friends' lists as you used to. Maybe you even consider deleting your journal from time to time, or at least let it sit idle.
Your Livejournal Friends
Now let's talk about your friends list. You indicated that you have 46 LJ friends.
A good, considerable number of friends. This list probably represents a spectrum of both your good close friends as well as a number of passing acquaintances. A few of them might be folks you met through LJ, or simply journals that you found interesting, as well as adding random people back who added you at some point in the past. A fairly reasonable friends list.
You also have been listed as a friend by 42 users.
That's a decent amount of people paying attention to your journal. By now your journal is fairly well developed, and so is the list of people who watch it. You've kept your journal interesting enough to keep your friends watching, as well as a few people that are sure to have picked up on it randomly along the line. You might get a few more followers as time goes on, but hey, you are right where it's expected.
Finally in this category, you have a friends to friends-of ratio of 1.0952380952381.
This is an average ratio, meaning you have nearly (or maybe exactly) the same number of friends as people who have listed you as a friend. There's a good chance you add back everyone who has added you, and only add people who haven't added you if they are a good friend and chances are they'll be adding you back anyway.
Your Posting Habits
You have indicated that to date, you have made 128 entries into your Livejournal. This gives us an average post rate of 0.56140350877193 posts per day.
With this kind of post rate, you are updating at least once every other day, sometimes once a day. This seems to indicate that you like to keep your friends (or simply your journal) updated on the day to day progress of your life, no matter how boring or exciting. There are days when you simply have nothing to say, and on those days you simply say nothing, although you make a good effort to update when you can.
Your Commenting Habits
According to your information, you have posted 82 comments and have recieved 120 of them over the lifetime of your journal. Let's see what this information can mean.
First of all, this indicates that you have been getting an average of 0.9375 comments for every Livejournal entry that you make.
You get at least one comment for every other post, and sometimes you can expect one for each entry that you make in your journal. You might think this is less than average, but don't despair. Unless you have a habit of making posts that incite comments, chances are your friends just can't think of anything interesting to say.
A more fair measure of how many comments you get might be your average number of comments per post per friend, which is 0.020380434782609. This may seem low to you, especially if you have lots of friends.
The final statistic is the ratio of your comments to comments you get. Your ratio is 0.68333333333333. The higher the ratio, the more talkative you are compared to your friends, comment-wise.
That's it for now! Perhaps there was something insightful in this analasys, and perhaps you learned absolutely nothing. Feel free to post your results on your own Livejournal, and invite your friends to take the Livejournal Analasys today!
