I’ve uploaded pictures from the AIT Ball I attended while in training at Fort Lee. More pictures from Fort Lee will be added when I get the opportunity.
I got a letter yesterday from one of my buddies who trained with me in Fort Lee. It was a pleasant surprise. In some ways I wish I was back in Fort Lee… I know I was always saying I couldn’t wait to get back home… but I wouldn’t mind another week in Fort Lee… life there was so much simpler. I miss hanging out with all my Army buddies. Life is simple in the Army.
The last few days have been fun. I am actually going to miss this place. My buddy and I have suddenly become the company webmasters! So I’ve been able to get access to machines! I think that’s pretty cool because it puts me back on track to come back to school. One of my drill sergeants needed a web page, and now all the other drill sergeants want one too. We’re also going to most probably make a company webpage… I plan on maintaining it from Arizona… But anyway… 4 days and a wake up…
I am ALMOST out of here. OH GOD IT FEELS SO GOOD! Plus my parents will be making to my graduation!! This is the BEST! WOOHOO!!! I’m so done with this place. I’ve been here way too long. 13 weeks is no joke. But I’m finally almost done… Next weekend will be my last here… That’s pretty much it… Go Army!
I might get to leave early. There are three possible dates. The official one, which is September 4th, then there is August 29th, which is when I can graduate if my acceleration is approved (I find out if the Colonel has approved it on Tuesday), and then there is August 27th. It turns out that our entire class might be accelerated. We find out Monday. If this is the case (and I so hope it is), I will only miss two days of school. This is all still a BIG IF. I hope it works out. Went to a hotel this weekend. It was fun. Relaxed. Slept in a nice comfy bed… I hope next weekend is my last weekend. I so want to LEAVE THIS PLACE!!!
The weather has been strangely nice since Wednesday. The air doesn’t feel like a furnace blast and I am not sweating out insane amounts of water. The mornings are actually rather chilly – they seem like Arizona winters, which means I feel cold. It warms up during the day to where there respectable heat – but not too hot or humid. This state can’t make up its mind about the weather.
We’re doing FTX this weekend. It should be cool – going out to the field… putting on our camou… YEAH! We leave on Tuesday morning and come back Friday morning. After that we have 3 days of classes (Subsistence) and then the finals and then I’m DONE!
That’s all… see y’all next week.
Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy!
It’s August! Yeah! This means I only have a month left! Maybe a little less if my acceleration request goes through. I hope it does. It has to go all the way up to the Lieutenant Colonel. If that goes through, I can leave on the 30th of August as opposed to the 4th of September. I have a little over 4 weeks left. 9 weeks have flown by. I want OUT. I hate Virginia and it’s mostly because of the stupid weather. I have over-night pass this weekend, but I’m not going anywhere. I’m sitting my ass in Fort Lee, Virginia, using the Internet and the phone. That’s all I’m doing. Another weekend… My time here draws to an end!!
Man I’m pissed! Some of my professors are SO DAMN RUDE! They are so obtuse! They are absolutely unwilling to help me out. They keep talking about how important it is to be on time for classes but they will do nothing to help me get there on time. Their brain seems to have some problem comprehending the “I am here under orders from the United States Government” part. Doesn’t matter. I sent an email out to the Dean. I can’t believe that they don’t have to common courtesy to reply to me like decent, mature individuals. I can’t believe that they won’t even give me a little bit of respect – especially considering the things I am doing. Yeah… let their lame asses run 6 miles in 85% humidity at 3 in the afternoon. I am busting my ass so that THEY can feel safe… I hate them.
Well, another weekend rolls by… Can’t wait to graduate.
One more weekend rolls by. Went to the mall again. Saw “K-19: The Widowmaker” which was a pretty good movie. I liked it. More drama than I expected, but I wasn’t disappointed. Nothing else is going on. The weather just keeps getting hotter and hotter. I hate it. Around 46 or so days left… Yee-haw! See y’all next weekend (not like anyone reads this crap anyways).
Oh yeah! Another weekend is here!! WOOHOO!! I can’t post here regularly anymore… They moved the dayroom because some other stupid Company needed it. Our Senior DS tried real hard to keep it. When he couldn’t, he just moved over all the stuff to where we currently live. Couldn’t move the computer because it costs a lot of money and they don’t want to risk dropping it or something – I don’t know how that piece of crap could be expensive. If it is, then someone conned them. Anyway, went and saw MIB II coz we got OFF POST PASSES!!! THEY RULE!!! The movie was alright – not as good as the first, but still entertaining.
Well… gotta go now… see you all next week…
