If you’ve been following along with Nicolette.co you’ll have read about how much my life has changed in the last year and a half: from moving to South Korea to a serious family illness to my eventual return to the US. Growing up as a military brat has ensured that I have become a master at dealing with change and adapting to my new surroundings, which will come in handy now.
By the time this post goes live, I will be done with Basic Military Training (BMT) just outside of San Antonio. You read that right, I have joined the United States Air Force!
I am an American Airman
Going in, I’ll be an Airman 1st Class (A1C). If you want to compare my rank with another branch, I am an E-3. Further down the road I will be applying to commission as an officer.
What does this mean for Nicolette.co?
Nicolette.co is my baby: I could never abandon it. I will, unfortunately, have less time to devote to it until late Fall. Thankfully I’ll be in a much more structured environment than before, so I should be more productive. My current plan is to schedule 30 minutes every day after class and at least an hour each day of the weekend, so fingers crossed I can stick to that!
Nicolette.co will remain the same contextually but because it is also a lifestyle blog and not just a fashion blog, I might write about my life in the Air Force. There are subjects I obviously cannot broach: I will try to answer the questions I am permitted to answer and I thank you in advance for understanding when I might not be able to fully reply to.
Joining the Air Force has been an exciting moment in my life and I am so thrilled and motivated to chase this life I’ve earned.
Stay tuned for more!
