Hi there! As you may have assumed, I made it all the way to Okinawa! The trip was horrible. Not to complain, but a plane of about 20 crying babies for 36 hours...ugh. Stay tuned for a "What to expect on an AMC flight" post.

Anyways. Time for the good stuff.

I got in on Friday night and my awesome sponsor picked me up from the airport and took me to Chile's. Yes, Chile's was my first meal in Japan. But believe me, anything besides airplane food or a Kind Bar was a great change of pace.

She then dropped me off at my new apartment on base. I walked in my room and took a long awaited shower. I then realized that I didn't have a towel so I walked around to air dry a little and went to bed wet.

After sleeping for 10 hours, I woke up feeling refreshed and surprisingly not jet-lagged. Sid took me to the Japanese phone store (I'm loving my iPhone 6s!), the BX (like a Walmart on a military base), the grocery store on base and the internet store to get internet for my room.

After she dropped me off I spend a few hours organizing all of my new things. Once I have my place a little more set up, I'll do a post about it.

Saturday night I heard a knock at my door, it was some of the other new Ensigns who live right down the hall! It was so nice to meet them in person after being Facebook friends for months! With all your friends living in the same building, it feels a bit like a dorm for grownups. But hey, that's also kind of fun!

Today (Sunday), I'm just relaxing and making some to-do lists.

Talk to you soon! xoxo
