So Far Away Again

Sarah and I are once again distanced from each other for a short period of time, but it feels like an eternity. As some of you may know, I am working for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for about a month or two as a Cambodian linguist. So far it is a pretty neat job. I just listen to suspects' phone conversations and translate as necessary. I'm somewhat of a glorified voyeur. Ha ha.

It's a pretty nice arrangement here as well. All expenses are paid for except for food, which is very helpful at the present time. I am staying right in the very center of Philadelphia at the Marriott Residence Inn and although the amenities here are great, they really don't mean a whole lot without my sweetheart. I miss her so incredibly much, it's getting ridiculous. As the days go by I notice more and more things that I miss about her and I look forward to when she flies out to see me next month so she can get to experience Philadelphia. I am literally a couple blocks away from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and I can look out my window and see city hall with a statue of William Penn on the top.

To Sarah, I love you. I miss you so much sweety and I appreciate how good you've been about this whole situation. You truly make me the happiest man alive. I don't know what I'd do without you. You are the best.
