And I thought that...
Here I thought that being on the 'List' for promotion into the admiralty would be my ticket to easy street, but, as it turns out, all those still above you want you to prove yourself and your loyalty by assigning you duties that seem somewhat unnessecery or down-right silly.
I have been very busy shuttling between Coruscant and Other worlds to escort ships, or oversee and inventory of a facility, or conduct a shakedown cruise of a new vessel (which is actually fun).
All this reminds me of the sort of things we had to do back when I first joined the Rebellion. We had our heads shaved and we were called 'Pods' becuase of how funny most of us humans looked with bald heads. The hazing is a way to see if you follow orders and will do whatever you are told without question.
So, it has been a while since I was able to sit down here at my temporary office and really write something worth reading. I still have not selected an aide, but I am starting to look at those I work with as potential victims, er I mean candidates.
