getting closer...

sorry I'll be going on a lot about how ready I am to leave in my next few posts.... only THREE weeks left. I'm getting really excited about getting back to my house in OKC and then getting things in order before heading back out for some travel time. I found a ticket roundtrip to paris for $844 which is cheaper than london at $1074 so I'm thinking I'll fly into paris first and then train up to London where I'm going to stay with a friend who is in school there this fall.
that'll be my home base while I fly to Senegal and back and then Barcelona. I hope I can make it all work out all right. I wanted to take time off to travel before getting back into the groove of a full time job in the states and no time off to travel. although I may just search out an overseas job again, not real sure at this point, I'm going to wait to see what I find when I get back to okc...
three guys are out in the hall now chatting away, only 2 are hot, they are tech sargents and great guys and all, but man I'm going to hit the lights soon and they better leave the hallway outside my door! ha
I'm actually going to miss a lot of the guys here on base, the ones I've gotten to know from the mess hall or gym or hanging out here in the barracks, and also the afghan guys on the base, the kid that works the desk at the gym, and the guys at the rug market etc.. it will be hard to leave, but I'll be too excited to get back home anyway....
also thanks to all the emails lately on my gmail addy, you may have noticed it on the right. I hope readers feel free to email anytime, and of course all comments welcome...
