Kanji haunts me!

Argh! I'm in a U.S. territory and my blogger account still comes up in Japanese lettering. What to dooooo???!?!?!!?!?! I certainly don't know enough to change it. Boo!

So, guess where I am right now? If you said, "Mmmmm, not Hawaii?" I would say bad words followed by "You are correct!" The past two weeks have been a roller coaster of rumors and irritations as the Kitty Hawk has to continue forward since the GW is a burnt little husk of a boat right now. Here's a breakdown-

Kitty Hawk: Summer o' fun: CANCELLED, Summer of long exercises: Game on!

GW: Pierside in SD, collecting COLA and working duty section only

Who's the winner? I will let you take this vague sporty metaphor and draw your own conclusions.

HOWEVER. I am slightly winner-y in that it looks good that I will start my residency sometime in August. While this is less than ideal, it's definitely better than September and definitely better than being bumped for a year. That would have made me very sad.

And, to answer the question as to where I am, I'm in Guam! In the Santa Fe hotel. Who needs 8 days in Hawaii when you can have 3.5 in Guam? That's like a showcase showdown prize you would TOTALLY pass on. But at least you're still in the Showcase Showdown, right?

I went to a Hail and Bail yesterday, which was fun and today I'm just chilling out. Maybe I'll finally get my haircut after wanting to do so for the last 2 months. Whoa! Slow down speedracer of excitement! And Thursday I'm meeting up with a bunch of people to go see the Indiana Jones movie. I will let you know my personal opinion of how Harrison Ford has aged. Until then!

  1. How are you liking Guam? I can't say that I envy you. I lived in Tamuning when I was stationed there, although I do know where the Sante Fe Hotel. Awesome. I hope you had a great time :)
