When deployment first starts, it takes a while to get use to the time difference (which was 9 hours). It's hard to find a good time to talk when the time difference is so huge, but we eventually figured it out! The first few months leading to R&R went by so slow. I think it was because of the holidays and it being so cold outside (which I absolutely hate). After Jon left, I started studying for my P&C Insurance license to sell auto and fire policies at State Farm. It took me a while, but I finally passed right before R&R!
