I recently stumbled upon another EFM (translation: Foreign Service Spouse) Blogger named David that’s heading to Hermosillo, Mexico with his wife. I’ve really been enjoying his content, as it provides a unique perspective – that of a male accompanying spouse. He sprinkles in humor everywhere, which is a trait that will be very useful for him in his overseas adventures. Make sure and check out his blog at: EF’M: The Life of an FSO Spouse.
David has been writing lately about his frustration with the myriad of acronyms that employees and their spouses are required to understand in order to function effectively in the Foreign Service. Honestly, we were still 6 months in and I was mixing these up! As David picked up on, they’re just not very intuitive to remember… check out David’s humorous attempt to translate the acronyms into something that made more logical sense. I hope you get a good chuckle from it! I sure did.
