So after a crazy day of flying and delays, layovers, standby and other fun stuff like that, I finally made it safely to Vicksburg Mississippi. (I left my notebook in my room, so I will tell that story later.) Today was a long day of "in-processing", which is basically the beginning of orientation, as well as being issued our uniforms. For the most part it has been a "relaxing" day, in the sense that even though all the orientation stuff is going on, I know that everything is working out and not much has happened so far that has thrown me for a loop (yet). Today reminded me in a way of working at Lowe's--on my feet on concrete for most of the day, lots and lots of walking, carrying stuff, helping people figure out what was happening next.
On an interesting note, last night I tried fryed catfish. Not really a big fan, but then again, I am not really a big fan of seafood in general.
