This has been a very crazy past few weeks but it has all come to an least for now, though a lot of work is still needed.  I officially ended my time with ITT on August 11th and began my new contract with Five Rivers.  I also left Kabul, Afghanistan and am now in Iraq, which is 100% better.  Though I have to share a room with someone, it's not nearly as bad as the mold infested, disgusting house I lived in while I was in Kabul.  The food is better and the environment seems a lot better too.  I do miss my friends and some of the people I work with but I think I'm in a better spot for progress in my professional career as well.  We shall see.
Afghanistan was an interesting part of my life but that chapter is over now.  Farewell, goodbye and get the hell away from me!!!
