I accepted a job in Kabul so it looks like we are definitely both going to Afghanistan for our next tour. I wouldn’t say I’m excited per se — not the same way I was really looking forward to moving to El Salvador (albeit with a mix of nervousness and anticipation). But I do think the opportunity presents an exciting professional challenge. And most of all, I’m glad Kail and I will be together.I know I joked about “leaning on” Kail and not taking my career/professional skills seriously, but the truth is I am probably going to be working for a long time because a) It’s what I do — I’m a worker bee and I like being busy and b) More to the point — as Kail is fond of pointing out, I “like stuff.” Stuff being: anything from Amazon Prime, traveling/vacations, dining out and things that costs money. (I scoffed, then proceeded to buy new running shoes on Zappos.)When we first found out about Afghanistan, my number one goal was to get a job, any job, that would mean we could stay together. But I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of opportunities for EFMs to work at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul that not only seemed interesting and challenging, but were right in line with my professional background and skills. So I applied for some jobs, had a couple interviews, received a couple offers and made a choice.As a congratulatory gift, Kail bought me a mini Afghanistan flag (pictured above) for my own personal Flag Day celebration (when FSOs receive their first assignments, it’s at a ceremony called “Flag Day” where everyone’s names are called out and they receive small flags, along with the revelation of their countries of destination).Where are you headed for your next post?
