After thirty months onboard, I have finally departed the ship.  I’ve been looking forward to this day for approximately 899 days.  Ok, so it hasn’t been nearly that bad, but after having spent literally almost ten percent of my life onboard, I am ready for a change.

          Fittingly enough, the last week was pretty brutal; I worked all seven days and didn’t get nearly as much reading done as I was hoping.  I fell a bit behind, but hopefully with this week off, I will be able to make up some ground.
