L-192 Week 02 blog


You would think after a week we might be used to some of these things already but it seems like week 02 was even more difficult than the first. As soon as we wake up in the morning we are being rushed outside for incentive training. No joke. Our feet hit the floor from the rack and we throw on our shoes before we are even fully awake and coherent. The days of lying in bed and hitting the snooze button a few times are long gone. This week was extremely tuff but it seems to have flown by rather quickly. Wake up, sweat, eat, sweat, march, eat, sweat, sweat, sweat, eat and that is pretty much our typical day and all before 1900. The days are long but the weeks are short, this is so true. After all the pain, sweat and military knowledge being crammed down our throats we are all so exhausted but at the same time excited to be at the end of week 02. At this point we are starting to get a feel for our company commanders. I think it’s safe to say they implement jokes into their lectures to see who will take the bait and get us all in trouble. These jokes sometimes are what get us through the day. The hardest part is just trying not to laugh while we are already in trouble. I am certain that week 03 is not going to get any easier.
