I got 6 hours of sleep! Woohoo! Good thing, because wake-up was 3:45am. We had to stand in formation for an hour pointlessly, but since then the day has gone smoothly. We got our complete BDUs* today. My field jacket says Rossy…sniff… I can’t wait to be in full uniform tomorrow. We also bought $150 worth of **** that we’ll need at basic. Damn, it’s only 12:15pm. Damn, long days.
I tried on my uniform. I look sexyyy… They had LASAGNA for dinner. I was like OH ****! I’m talking to my roommates more. It’s cool.
