Dear Coco –
We got our weapons today. I’m not sue how I feel about it. I have to sleep with it next to my head at night. Hmmmmm . . . Guess I’m excited to shoot targets and play soldier although I’m pretty sure I could never shoot a real person. I mean I could shoot a real person if I had to of course but just thinking that I’m training to actually shoot a person is mildly mind blowing. There are some very “crazy” people here who are like super soldier type personalities! Wow, I guess my mind is just blown by how some people can become so brainwashed by something or by an organization so quickly. What happened to power of individual thought?
Anyways, I did my fitness assessment today. I did really well and took 40 seconds off my one mile run!
I’m tired. Not for any reason but just a lack of sleep. I miss our conversations. There’s no one here who is stimulating intellectually. Sigh . . . I keep wondering what you’re doing, how the weather is and if I’ll see you over Christmas. I miss your jokes and the way you always challenged me to think and be better. It’s funny but even the Drill Instructors I don’t find to be that motivational.
I guess it’s harder here than I thought because I have to self motivate. I was hoping that their would be these people I would just “click” with but it hasn’t been that way. Maybe it’s because I’m so much older. I don’t know. But, I’ve always been self motivated so I guess that’s nothing new.
Well, I guess I should get some sleep. We get two hours on Sunday for church or personal worship. I plan on doing yoga and meditating!
