Let the countdown begin
I was going to write a post about our port call in Thailand today but a big event just eclipsed that.
I got orders! We are going to Newport, Rhode Island for 3 years of instructor duty!
This is very exciting for me. Ever since I went to school there in 2002, I have wanted to go back as an instructor someday. And that someday is actually happening now.
And of course, besides the excitement of just getting the orders I wanted, this also means the countdown has begun for me to leave the ship. There are a lot of contradictory feelings involved in this - far too much to get into here, but suffice it to say, I’m ready to move on to my next assignment. With my family in tow.
Don’t worry, I’ll get around to talking about Thailand shortly!
