Move #6, and I haven’t even made LTjg yet.
So it’s been a very quick but also long past few months. Training is going well, but it’s a grind. Getting used to rotating shift work has been interesting, but it doesn’t seem to be that bad. It’s also been amazing to finally get some operational experience with all the knowledge and studying we’ve been doing.
It’s been great being back up in the northeast and having the opportunity to visit friends and family up here. Having the chance to see a bit of Boston, doing a bunch of mountain biking, and having the opportunity to take a flight in a glider has been awesome. Morning runs will never get old, and it’s been great that they’ve been able to continue despite the long hours of training.
And what a new year it has been. From being able to celebrate it with an amazing friend on the West Coast to moving into a new area and starting a new phase of training in Saratoga Springs, NY, it has been an adventure. I’m incredibly grateful for the safety I was blessed with in my all travels and all the new insight and learning opportunities I had along the way. I can only hope 2013 will be just as full of challenges, adventures, and chances to grow. I’m excited about whatever He might have in store for me.
