The days are flying by. I have one more drill before I ship out and I have a lot of paper work to finish. It seems surreal and just incredibly stressful. I have been trying to spend more time with my husband but it’s hard because we are both working full time and he works nights on the weekends. i am excited though, it’s a big step in our lives and an adventure for me. i am excited about how things will go and if i will be successful. I also anxious and sad at the prospect of being so far away and how hard it will be to go through the training and face getting deployed. i have no idea what to expect when i come back. where i will work and what my choice of grad school will be. i am only 23 but i feel like i have so much riding on the next 9 months.
i feel slightly silly because i wanted more support from my family from this. that’s a selfish request considering that they will be so worried about me.
thirty days to go before i ship out. i will miss my clothes and my nail polish and my comfy bed!!! hahaha:) i hope i have courage and don’t give up.
