The Life and Times of a MILSO


I have recently acquired quite the to-do list. With our time here in DC dwindling down, I have finally been able to start the whole Medical Readiness process for our overseas move. After a lot of misinformation, confusion, and embarrassing "my husband--not my wife" and “I’m not active duty, I’m the spouse” I have finally been cleared to go to Guam (to the best of my knowledge)! Even more, I finally turned in all of my paperwork to study at the University of Guam. I couldn’t be more excited to go back to school, even though I know it is going to be hard work. I will be studying Secondary Education, with an emphasis in Social Studies, which completely blows my mind. I’ve always loved history and geography so I’m thrilled to share my knowledge with others!

Another project that I’ve taken on is vlogging on a new YouTube channel:
The reason behind the channel is to just interact with friends and family.  I want to be able to show them what I am doing in my life, along with making a few good laughs. Other than all of this madness, I am still working at a local Starbucks, serving up a friendly smile! I certainly am going to miss all of my friends at Starbucks, and all of the life lessons that come along with serving the people of DC (can you say, 'entitled?'). Being a barista has been one of the best experiences of my life, including giving excellent customer service. In fact interacting with customers is my favorite part of the job! You never know how much of an impact a simple “good morning” or “thank you” can have on a person’s everyday life.

We have lots of adventures coming in our last few months remaining in DC. We can't wait to share it all with you! Stay tuned!
