Let's review shall we?
This whole week has been adjusting/orientation to the environment, so there will be a lot of pictures on facebook as soon as I can get to it. Being here feels like 10% percent army (with all the rules), 20% summer camp (with the uniforms) and 50% college dorms freshman year. It'll change though once we have our permanent groups and training starts next week.
|My temporary group...I love these guys.|
Also starting in the next few weeks is our training: physical training, CPR training, cooking training (though that's more for people who don't know how to cook all that well, I feel like I'll get kind of bored in that), and tool training. I'll be pretty happy to have a set schedule again, that was one thing at home I missed.
The town of Vinton is pretty small, but the people are extremely nice. It's a close knit community, and there's a few places that I've liked so far. There's an amazing Chinese restaurant that is super cheap and I'll most likely be spending my money there most of the time for lunch. I don't think anything is over $10.25.
Yeah, I'm gonna be such a regular.
|These signs are all over Vinton. I feel like such a celebrity...to a small degree.|
I'm out for now, but I'll keep you posted! Check out the pictures on either Facebook or Flickr!
