I’m just going to start out be saying I’m not quite sure where this posting is going via subject matter.
I had this picture in my mind about Basic before I arrived. I watched many YouTube videos and different blog postings about other soldiers’ experiences. The thing is that every company has different standards and SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedures). Being MP’s, we have more standards than others because if we are the ones enforcing the laws, we should follow them ourselves and then some.
After being here for ten weeks now, I’ve gotten used to living this lifestyle. It’s hard to imagine that I’ll be wearing civilian clothes again. I’ve been wearing ACU’s and PT shirts that say Army on them for the entire time I’ve been here. I used to wake up late-morning and skip breakfast mostly every morning, but now I’ll probably continue waking up early when I get home. I’ll also start actually making my bed every morning out of habit.
The one thing I thought I would miss the most is the computer. I used to use it all the time at home for Facebook, YouTube, blogging, and many more sites I click through for entertainment. I honestly haven’t missed it at all. There’s not enough free time in the day to think about that stuff.
One thing I am looking forward to, after I drive home with my mom and sister, is seeing my dogs at home. I wonder if they even remember me after five months. I’m sure they will, and I can’t wait to see their reaction.
There are so many other things I’m looking forward to doing when getting home. Too many to list. For now, it’s time for bed. Thanks for sticking through this random blog.
Until next time,
