BCT Day 24

What a long day. It started with the PT test. I improved on everything. I even passed the running. I was going for 16:30 for the 2-mile, and I got 15:43. Apart from passing the hell out of the test, I get to eat cake, pie, donuts, and whatever the hell I want. They don’t put restrictions on fast ************* like me.

What a long day. It started with the PT test. I improved on everything. I even passed the running. I was going for 16:30 for the 2-mile, and I got 15:43. Apart from passing the hell out of the test, I get to eat cake, pie, donuts, and whatever the hell I want. They don’t put restrictions on fast ************* like me.

We had an inspection of the barracks and lockers. We had to do such pointless impractical anal useless **** such as rolling each sock INDIVIDUALLY, getting the rust out of my shaving cream bottle, displaying everything to a stupid standard, etc. Argh. I hated every minute of it. And of course, it wasn’t good enough for them. We failed. Ah well. At least I expected it.

We went through another fun obstacle course. I was exhausted from the PT test and standing in one place for two hours for the inspection, but it was still cool. The best part of today is we’re in white phase! Woo hoo! That means more free time. The bad part, and one of the worse of basic so far, was high crawling in sawdust for some ******* idiots who were sleeping during the day. Picture getting down on your belly on chipped wood and having to use your elbows, knees, and feet to travel through it. Now the skin on my knees and elbows is red and tender. Notice I said high crawl. The low crawl is even worse. You have to get your FACE in it too.

Looking at the bright side of things so I don’t go crazy time…On the bright side we ARE on white phase. Two weeks of rifle training and then two weeks of blue phase, in which we go in the woods and use everything we learned. Then it’s 4 days of graduation and out-processing and I’m out this bitch. I hear white phase goes blazing fast.

Oh. I’m ranked 13th in my platoon of 60 for the PT test. Pretty good huh?
