Ok so it's been a while........Life has been pretty insane with school, work and just life in general. I've been looking forward to some much needed time off school (aka, spring break baby!) and I made it! I'm off for spring break this whole next week! Unfortunately, I'm not going anywhere warm for this lovely break, but just having some down time will be nice.
I'm enjoying school for the most part. I'm learning a lot in a couple of my classes, and the stuff I'm learning is going to be very useful once I'm a cop. I'm still pretty excited to graduate in May though. Skills is going to be fun and I'm definitely ready to start on that journey.
Totally random, but I've been thinking about taking a language course this summer. Pashtu is the official language of Afghanistan. As you all know by now, I'm going to be spending a year there on a deployment. There is a part of me that really wants to get in touch with the language and culture before I go. I feel like it would help me acclimate when I get there and have a better understanding of the locals that I'll be working with.
Work is going ok, although I haven't been there much because of school. There is a possibility of me going on orders to work with the MN Honor Guard team. They do all military funerals in the state: the folding of the flag and the 21 gun salute. It's a job that would be an honor and a privilege in my opinion.
Well, thats the new buzz guys. Until next time :)
