I have arrived. Curtis was waiting at the plane when I stepped off. He brought me home and we stayed up all night bullshitting. Its now 7am and his 12 hour shift doesn’t even start till noon, so I might be feeling a little guilty for keeping him up all night. But only a little.

Its strange being back here. So much has changed and yet so much remains the same. Most of the differences are in the fact that I’m no longer in the military. I haven’t been here 24hrs and its already blaringly apparent that I’m a contractor and will be treated as such. More on this later though.

Just wanted to let everyone know I arrived safely. Will be posting some pics in the next few days.

    Glad you made it girl. Give Curtis a hug from Mom. I love you both and miss you immensely. Take care and hope to hear from you soon, even if just a email. Alvin made it to Africa safe. Love you Mom

    G’Day Juls,

    Good luck over there. I guess it is groundhog day going back for seconds. This time you can be an even bigger dag(if thats possible) as you are not an NCO. Take care and stay away from the soft serve ice cream.
