  1. Home Sweet Home

    So I got home last night and was more than happy to see my boyfriend waiting for me at the airport. I was loaded down with my overly heavy backpack so I couldn't exactly run to him...so it was a good thing that he was sprinting towards me haha. At the last minute, my flight had been rescheduled and so I ended up getting home like...6 hours earlier than planned. Crazy, huh?

    Well, today my boyfriend and I went out hiking along to two waterfalls and I snapped away on my camera while my ...

  2. CIF Gear...

    My last stepping stone before I get out of here and head home...CIF Turn-In. A soldier's most dreaded part of service. We have to clean all of our gear to perfection before turning it back into CIF, which can be hard sometimes due to the beating gear can take. Lucky for me, my rucksack came from Iraq/Afghanistan so I get a little leeway on it being stained or damaged, which is great considering it's stained and is frayed here and there. ^.^' I just want to turn my gear in already and move on to ...

  3. Induction Ceremony

    This evening...I was officially inducted into the Army Transportation Corps! I now have my Spearhead of Logistics Pin, Transportation Corps Pin, National Defense Service Ribbon, and Army Service Ribbon.

I'm homebound next Tuesday and couldn't be any happier right now.

I'm definitely going to swing past my high school and revisit some of my memorable teachers and coaches. I'm also going to plan on surprising my little sisters when I get home. Here's the two possible ways it's going to go down:

  5. Back to Training...

    Well, I enjoyed my four day weekend for Thanksgiving in which I spent most of the time bullshitting and playing too many video games. On the bright side, I feel like I strengthened at least two or three relationships with some of my battle buddies so that's always a great thing. I also got to see my best battle buddy from Basic today and that about made my day.

    Now we head back to training tomorrow with a wake up call at 4AM. Why so early? Minus it just plain out being the Army, ...
