Week 02

Week 02 is officially ending and week 03 is about to begin, hard to believe. This past week flew by with all the hustle and bustle of the parade. I can already tell this week is going to be different. After a morning class with and our first mentor visit we went to chow and then it was back to the house for some fun new games. The first one was we got to pack up everything we had in our racks into our sea-bags and carry it outside. From there we all stood side by side and had to take off our sea-bag and pass it down, make a pyramid, then move said pyramid again. At first it was rough but eventually we started working as a team and made it all the way around the parade field twice. The other game was grabbing a large line (rope) and having to hold it over our head, then on our left shoulder, then over our head, then on our right shoulder…repeat.


Other than today’s intense training the week was pretty focused on the parade and so training was focused more on work with our pieces and marching rather than us and our flaws. However I think this week did help us start to learn to work together and we have more of a team mentality. We also have started standing watch at night and so I am sure that everyone will be much more tired and cranky. At least tomorrow is Sunday so we will have our divine hours to work on our uniforms, our required knowledge and ourselves.
