he let me know he made it there okay, and we discussed things that he needs, but he still doesn't have a legitimate address for me to send things to. he knows me, so he told me not to send so much stuff that it would interfere with getting back. i just want to send him everything i possibly can to make him feel at home. being in culinary school, I've made him so many snacks and pastries in the past, but there's no way they'd survive overseas. all his friends on base loved them, too. I heard it takes about three weeks for packages to reach him.
but really, i'm just ecstatic. that's all(:
