Should I stay or should I go

The Clash sang it better than I wonder about it.
History repeats itself,or so they say.It was back in 2000 when I had a hard time away from my house with no friends,stranger in a strange land,in Ioannina.I went to study there while I dreamt of Thessaloniki.So,I tried to leave that place and go study/live in Thessaloniki.When I finally managed there were tears and memories I left behind.Best days of my life perhaps,though I had a very good time in Thessaloniki too.So now,I am at a similar point.
I had some hard time in Limnos.Too few men,too much work,too many hours of guard,virtually no days off.Now I take many days off,there are many men,few hours of guard of my own choice(!) and less work.But I am finally getting transfered to my beloved Thessaloniki.I can spend 3-4 nights outside the base with friends but there will be only limited days off.Also I will leave behind all of my friends-including some nice officers.For what?I don't know what to expect there plus it will take me some time to get used to it.
If there was a way to stop the transfer I would probably stay in Limnos.Of course it's not so terrible-moving to Thessaloniki.It's only for 4 months.I guess they will pass rather quickly.But I am wondering as I did 7 years ago whether the Transfer is good for me.
Be careful what you wish.It may not be better than what you already have.
