it’s hung over my head for the past 3 months and now the time’s finally come:
tomorrow, i’ll be heading out to Basic Combat Training and Engineer School for the U.S. Army.
half-anxious, half-excited to leave Florida on my own for the first time, but i’m determined to tackle these next 17 weeks as my first trial as an adult.
flying to Fort Jackson for the first half of my training, and once i graduate, i’ll be sent to Gulfport, Mississippi for specialist training.
had a lot of fun this summer getting together with friends and meeting people that i very much admire, and i really hope to catch up with you guys once i make it back to Miami as a full-on US serviceman!
though i hope to write back sooner,
see ya later, everyone!
