Well I've been at the School of Music (SOM) for three weeks now and MCT has come and gone. The best thing about MCT was the fact that the plattoons had males and females in them, so we got to train with them. Of course I had my little fling and I miss him a lot. He was so cool. But hey, shit happens man. I got to shoot a lot of different guns, which was one of the best parts about MCT. I shot a machine gun, a grenade launcher, a rocket launcher, my M16A2 service rifle, and I got to throw a live grenade. It was frickin' awesome. I also had to dig a hole into the ground that went up to my armpits, was barely wide enough for me to stand in without getting stuck, and it was the length of two rifles. It was a two-man fighting hole and it took all day to dig. I had to take turns sleeping in that whole with my "buddy" until around midnight and it was freezing cold. That sucked too, but there were some other fun parts. We had this little four-day war thing and some of that was kinda fun. We got to shoot blanks at each other and our NCOs. The last week be basically just cleaned our rifles and hung out in the male barracks. My brother has pictures of me all decked out in cammie paint - check 'em out!
Ok, so here I am at SOM and things are going okay. It feels just like high school again with all the drama and shit every single day. My roommate turned out to be a whore - she was in my plattoon at boot camp and MCT. She's practically engaged, but she's had sex with two other Marines here. She doesn't know that I know, and she didn't tell me because she went behind my back and yadda yadda yadda. See what I mean?? High school ALL over again! But yeah, I'm starting to hook up with a tenor sax player from the Army who is really cute and smells SOOOO good! As for school, it's mostly about practicing. I have to practice 20 hours a week and I have a private lesson every Tuesday. Concert band (I'm in 2 of them) is actually not that bad because everyone is a good player and the music doesn't sound like ass. One of the songs we're playing has "Duel of the Fates," which I enjoy playing because it reminds me of SHS band. YAY! lol
Well I think that about sums it up for now. I'm just glad that I'm able to come here and get on the computer and especially the internet finally.
