a new beginning

well it wasn't what i expected. when i got down here, i found out that new cadets have to go through a 4 week initiation phase. oh boy. we get yelled at, smoked (they make us do pt and crap like that) and other crazy stuff. they get all mad about stuff and get in our faces and yell. its kinda hard not to laugh at them. they're not allowed to touch us or anything so they can't really do anything. just yell. and sometimes they get so mad they can't even talk right. then you just wanna laugh in their face. we have to learn a bunch of stuff from our manual. last night was fun. we had wrestling practise. just from that first time i can tell that this year i'm gonna be a totally diff wrestler when these coaches get down with me. they're really cool. my room mate isn't too big on em, but that's ok. hes a big guy, 6'5" 300lb black guy. he's fun. after practise, we went back to barracks and had a platoon war. 1stpltn (they're on the first floor) had to make a wall with their matresses. we (2nd pltn - second floor) had to break it down and get over it. we won 2 of the 3 rounds. it was awesome. sorta like a prison right. we were all chanting and yelling and stuff. we couldn't talk after it. it was fun. well i need to get going. hope you all are enjoying getting fat and being lazy. none of that for me. enjoy it for me. catch y'all later.

Sound's like your idea of fun! What does getting smoked mean? And what's PT?...physical training?
Anyway, I bet it's cool to know that you're gonna be a really really good wrestler by the time you get out of there!

getting smoked means one of the seargants or the officers got really mad at us and so they get us together to yell at us and make us to lots of pt (physical training) for a long time. its not enjoyable, but its fun.
