Finally, after a week without internet I’m back! Initially I was signed up with MCV Broadband for internet, that didn’t work out so I tried IConnect’s new 4G internet and it was AWFUL! The device wouldn’t charge while it was being used and the internet connection was slow. So, a few days ago I had GTA come out and install internet and it has been the best so far! Pretty much all internet on Guam is slow, but I think GTA’s the best. I’m just glad to be connected again. Being so far away from my family and friends is hard so emailing regularly makes the distance easier.
As you have probably heard, North Korea has been causing a ruckus lately and many people on Guam are afraid that we will be their target. So, it’s no surprise that I woke up to an email from my worrisome mom asking me to come home immediately! I’m more afraid that a typhoon will hit Guam than North Korea’s threats.
Now for the exciting and good news! It has been a year and a half since I moved to Guam and I haven’t seen my family at all! Next month I will be going home! I am so excited! I haven’t been away from my family this long. I will be there for two weeks and will be in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. I miss my parents and sister so much and am looking forward to eating a TON! I’m not looking forward to flying for so many hours. I get a bit nervous, which is odd because I’ve traveled quite a bit. Some people tell me to drink wine on the plane to calm my nerves, but are there any other tips out there to ease the anxiety?
