Hey ya’ll! So, I am currently in “quarantine” in Guam. It’s not actual quarantine, but I am still on Restriction of Movement (ROM) for the first 14 days of my being here. I can’t be around any groups of people and have to maintain social distancing if I’m outside of my room, but I can go workout outside. But don’t fret, I took a COVID test before getting on the plane and I tested negative. Anywho, I just came off the longest leave that I’ve taken while being in the military. I was home for almost 30 days….I will never do that again. It wasn’t all bad, I just don’t need to take that much of a break at home anymore. 12 days max from here on out.
I was able to spend time with some family and friends, however, I didn’t even see everyone whom I thought I would have. This last trip home was very eye-opening for me. I was able to see who really care about me and who doesn’t. I won’t go into much detail about that, but I definitely learned a lot. The older you get, the more you realize that it doesn’t matter if people are family or not, the people that rock with you, will rock with you no matter what. I’ve always been the type that likes to keep people connected, but I don’t know if that’s the direction that I want to go moving forward. I’m really only going to deal with the people that deal with me.
Any who, I am TOTALLY excited to be in Guam. I am scheduled to be stationed here for three years. I say “scheduled”, because that may change after I drop my package to commission and get picked up to become a commissioned officer, I’m speaking that into existence right now. Becoming an officer has always been my goal. I’ve been in the Air Force for 11 years now, and I’m finally ready to make that jump.
In a nutshell, I am excited to be able to settle down here. The first month of 2021 was great. I had family time and a lot of time to reflect on my plans for the year. I’m excited to move and find my next home. I feel like this place will be really good for me in this time of my life and I can’t wait to take you all on the journey!
Here are a few pics from my trip home:
