    I've been on Oki since January, its so nice here.

    The housing percentages change daily, so you'll have to wait until you're on island and at your housing brief to know where you live whether off base or on.

    I had horrible culture shock/homesickness when I first got here (Over 2 years ago), but I was able to get through it thanks to my husband forcing me to get out of the house (I had to tell him about the places I went and I had to take my nice camera so I couldn't just google images lol).

    I enjoy Oki. It really is what you make it. I've finally been able to find a job in my degree and that I love the end of last month/start of this month, so find the 'perfect' job might take some time, BUT don't let that stop you from getting a job (should you want one). My first job was where I met my best friend in the whole world.

    Awesome! You get to skip the cold that has struck the island right now. Hahaha. Summers can be pretty hot but the UV index is something you gotta keep an eye on. You can burn real fast.

    Congrats on your orders!
