20 Feb

Well, it’s official. My classmates and I finished our last night of training last week, our last ruck march and ODX this week, and walked across the stage today. We’re officially graduated 91 Bravos. All that’s left to do now is out process. That may take longer than normal, thanks to all of this random, wonderful snow and yet another 4 day holiday weekend. I’m not gonna lie, I don’t want to go. Let the time pass as slowly as possible. I’m really going to miss this place and all of my battles. But enough of the emotional stuff- I’ll save that for the next post.
I got caught sleeping during the ceremony by a First SGT from another company, and after being chastised for my inability to keep my eyes open through that incredibly dry ceremony, she proceeded to point out that my hair (which is in a fade) is out of regulations. -_- That was the most interesting thing that happened during the ceremony, at least that I’m aware of. It was incredibly dry. Not a tear was shed.
My Platoon SGT informed me today that I’ve been selected to receive the Certificate of Achievement for our class (aww yiss) I was the top all around soldier for class 12. Not to gloat, but I’m glad to finally be recognized. After I wasn’t selected for Honor Grad, I got a little worried. But I earned this and I’m damn proud of myself for it. Brown got the award for Distinguished Honor Grad for our class (ooh, so fancy)! I’m happy for her. She got through the entire cycle with all 1st time goes in every mod. She beat me out by a couple of points, thanks to that stupid 2nd time go I got in D-mod. *sigh* I guess I’ll have to let that go eventually. Stupid timing pin.
Ok, that’s all for now.
