Today I slept late, got stuff done, then picked myself and made myself go be social. I tend to lack in the social areas lately. I train, get tired, then don’t feel like going out with people. Amanda’s one of those friends who’s always there any time I’m feeling social, and she’s a great friend. 1900 rolled around and I was off to the HBU vs. South D. basketball game. We lost, but it was a pretty good game.
I picked up athletic tape on the way home, and a self adhesive wrap. I end up with shin splints pretty easily, and I’m training my left foot on that outward ankle roll. Tomorrow Adam and I are going to pick up some splint sleeves so I won’t have to pay crazy amounts for bulk shipments of tape.
The rice diet thing has been good. I had a few other meals this week, but overall did pretty well. I’m down by 5lbs as of last night, so it’s definitely doing some good.
After a few weeks of keeping steady at this, I’ll start the other stuff. You know, a dental check up, physical, pay that stupid traffic violation. Things that need to be done before hand.
I saw something about this movie A Marine Story. I’m picking it up as soon as it comes out on the 15th. It’s about this decorated officer who’s sent to help a recruit train for boot camp, then ends up under investigation due to Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Yup.
When I get bored, I think about going running. I think about it at work, when I’m stuck behind that stupid desk. On my drive home, when I wake up, while I eat. I should, you know, run more. I’d feel completely stuck if I weren’t seeing progress with weight and performance. I’ll need a work out buddy soon.
Can’t wait to get to Parris Island.
Oh, and I’m done being sad. I get over things pretty quickly. I figure that it’s better that nothing’s going to happen since I’m enlisting. I’ll be gone most of the time, so…I guess it just makes it easier to go.
One response to “Uuuuhhh, it’s an update.”
finally! you are starting to understand what it means to be a marine!
