BCT Day 26

It was gas chamber day. I went in with a mask, but they make sure you take it off inside and get a good whiff and open your eyes. Picture this: you know how you skin feels when you have a cut and you bathe in the ocean? That’s how my face, neck, and hands felt, only multiplied a few times.

It was gas chamber day. I went in with a mask, but they make sure you take it off inside and get a good whiff and open your eyes. Picture this: you know how you skin feels when you have a cut and you bathe in the ocean? That’s how my face, neck, and hands felt, only multiplied a few times. My eyes were watering, my nose was running, and I was drooling. I felt like I accomplished something that takes guts. Would I do it again? Hell yeah, it’s only 3 minutes and the pain gradually goes away in 15. I felt like I was in a giant bong party. Am I nuts? Maybe.

I got mail from my parents, Cendy, Manuel(GASP!), and David(DOUBLE GASP!). I’m going to read it now. Who needs sleep when you have a 5K march the next day? A normal person, maybe. But I want to go in the gas chamber again, so don’t listen to me.
