You know what…I’m low-key tired of making post like this. I literally haven’t posted on my blog since February, and that is horrible. In my defense, I have been doing a lot of things that didn’t allow me to post, but nine months is still a bit of a stretch. Lets start from the beginning.
I moved to the island of Guam in February. If you’ve never heard of Guam, it’s a US Territory in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It’s on the same side of the world as Korea and Japan, but way more remote. Since then, there has been a lot of adjusting. I purchased a new home in April. That process was very stressful, but it’s proving to be well worth it. I love my house. It’s my favorite thing about being here, and I’m thinking of staying here longer because of it.
This year wasn’t the best year for me as far as success and love, I will admit. I did buy a house, but that’s about it. I lost my uncle this year in May and that really hit me hard. I wasn’t expecting that at all. I also, ended a relationship that I was really excited about, so its back to the single life for me. Everything happens for a reason though, so I’m hopeful. This was the first year of my 30s and it has been a whirlwind. I have noticed the new perspective that comes with being 30 though. I do not have time to entertain anything or anyone that isn’t beneficial to me. I am more comfortable with who I am and how I look. Its crazy that this year is almost over already. I will be turning 31 next month, which is wild to me.
I have met some good people since I’ve been here, so that’s a plus. Meeting new people and building those relationships is something that I enjoy doing. You never know how people will impact your life until you give them a chance. The whole “no new friends” never really set well with me. With that being said, bare with me and stay tuned for more adventures of Guam.
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!
