Oh my goodness! FINALLY! It's been just shy of two weeks since I'd heart anything from him last. I didn't even realize it until I checked the date of his last email. I guess i was being more patient than i thought. But it was really driving me crazy, I really wanted to know what was going on. To just read his words and imagine his voice in my head. And I wanted to know if he'd gotten his fish yet! He hasn't. But he's very very close. I received three emails from him a little bit ago. I'll put pieces of them below. I think there was at least one other but it didn't make it through. He talked about it in another email, which is how I know it's missing.
Here are pieces of two of the emails.
"Hey sweety. This will be delayed getting to you. But its the 9th of october, about 6 am right now. Not much to say really, its kind of the same thing over and over and over again. Still working on quals... Have just 12 signatures left.
Looking forward to our plans when i get back. Im the sound silencing PO for refit assist which i found out afterward is a pretty sweet gig. I didnt know that when i volunteered though.
About to start clean-up. We had field day today then had to do after watch clean up not half an hour after. Swept for half an hour and came up with.... not much.

Grrrr I miss you so freakin much! 5 signatures away now. Kinda chillin'.
We are out of energy drinks from the rec committee. hehehe. I have some... they are gold now. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Keep my phone on me more often now because it’s got your pictures on it. [Sailor E] keeps trying to get my board scheduled early cause that’s what happened to him.
I’m waiting for taco Tuesday before I go to sleep, I shouldn’t eat before I sleep but Taco Tuesdays are AMAMAMAZING. I don’t care what anyone says.
Think I mentioned before that I nailed a pretty sweet gig for refit. I can’t see what my sent emails were because of our email system. like... I don’t have a "sent" box. So I don’t know what I have updated you on all the time.
So many things to qualify --- BCEF still... then all the other Quartermaster/ Conventional Navigation stuff. This honestly doesn’t make much sense to me. You know how I like to work in patterns and rhythms. When I find the reason and the system I can do so much with it. But Rules of the Road are like.... a ton of random rules with no discernible pattern. It’s annoying."
