last day in the Navy (Syd was fascinated with a paper towel tube)
At work yesterday there was a little ceremony where I was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal for the work I did the past two years (I received a different medal when I left the ship), and a picture with people's signatures and messages on the matting. (In the photo I am holding said picture and standing with the Commodore.) Some of my coworkers took me out to lunch afterward.
Today I got a haircut. Since I have been wearing my hair in a bun for the past five years, I figured I had better start fixing it on a (mostly) daily basis, and to do that I should acquire an easier-to-manage hairstyle. (When I see pictures of myself I'm still shocked at how dark my hair is!)
