Monday was packout day. I took the day off work to await the movers who would come and box and pack my things. I've never needed a relocation package before so this was my first time going through the process. USAID makes all arrangements with a shipping company and handles all the billing and coordination. The only thing I needed to worry about was just picking a date for when they could come.
It was also nice that being able to get to visit my grandparents that day. I don't speak with them one on one too often and I enjoyed telling my grandma about this new job, what I might doing, and where I might end up going. It's nice someone in my family, at least, thinks I'm doing something interesting with my career.
