Y’all. I am back. And when I say back, I mean back to blogging. I personally have not gone anywhere, but my writing has certainly been lacking, that’s for sure. I used to be fairly decently about keeping up with my little space on the internet, but life has happened and really interfered with that. Now, I got rid of all my old posts — I think 300+ posts in all. I decided that I wanted to start fresh and not have any of my past posts looming over my head. Not that any of my posts were loom worthy.
So, here I am…sitting in my office thinking about what to write. I guess I should share a few important pieces of my newish life so everyone can get on the same page. Since moving to the west coast, I have experienced two deployments, three sets of work ups, many many hail and bails, lots of beach bonfires, a revolving door of out of town guests, and so many incredible times with incredible people. We have really gotten so lucky here at VRC-30. Not that I have much to compare to, as this is our first shore duty/squadron. But from what I have heard from other friends in other squadrons, it seems as if our squadron has quite a different atmosphere. For this, I am eternally grateful. Being a part of this squadron, this life, has made me realize that I have these friends for life. We know exactly what each other are going through, we know exactly how to support each other, and we don’t mind doing it, at all. In fact, I think I can speak on all of my friends behalf, but getting to support our friends in their time of need is just as amazing as the feeling of being supported.
I don’t want to just slough off that our squadron is great just simply because it is great. We have a lot of really great factors that run deep and by factors, I mean people. First and foremost, our front office is fantastic. Oh, yeah…not everyone is military here. Okay, so front office is navy speak for the bosses: CO and XO. Not only did we get extremely lucky with the front office, but their spouses, for the most part, are wonderfully wonderful. Our Hinge wives (department head wives) are also amazing. Then the JOPA wives all play a key role as well. Our number one rule is that if someone is hosting an event, if we are available, we go. Mainly because if someone stops going to someone specifics event, then eventually no one will go to anyone’s events. We don’t want that to happen.
Okay, so I need to wrap this up and quit talking about how wonderful my life is. Some would start to argue that I am bragging.
