At least it's not some skank with meth mouth trying to bite and scratch you while offering you some coochy to let her loose.

Mind over Matter, if you don't mind then it don't matter. They make it as tough as possible because chances are you will experience much worse. Look at it like this, at least they will not smack the crap out of you...

I'm not really supposed to talk about it much, but with the support you guys have given me, I feel I owe you at least an idea of what's going on thus far.

I survived 1st day. There was nothing fun, exciting, or even good about it. It was all day hell both physically and mentally, I hated every second of it, and its not expected to get easier any time soon.

We had one quit, we had another get physically ill, and a few come close to passing out.

I can't give any details, but despite it all, it never even occurred to me to ring the bell and drop out. I recognize a few people from mt PT test, so its nice to know a couple of people.

All in all though, its pretty much what I expected of the program. Most of our DIs are former military, and they delight in concocting spectacular torments. I know the point of these tortures and exercises, so it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it might. My trick is to pick a spot on the wall across the room from me and think about it.

How did it get there? Would it come off? Is someone going to have to clean it?

At any rate, it does promise to be a long six months, but as of now, I don't have any plans on dropping out. I'm not saying I WONT fail, because nothing's certain until the end- but as it looks, I think i can hack it.

Again gentlemen, thank you.
