    Haha, I know what you mean. After lights out I always found my peace and tranquility on the cool porcelain.

    I have a question, my friend who got out of boot camp not too long ago said that many people he knew had their contracts changed to a different mos at boot camp(mostly the infantry guys). Did you see any of this happen while you were there? And was it hard for you to stay awake during classes and such? Oh and congrats Marine

    The hardest part is actually going. You hear so many people say how hard or how easy it is and you have certain expectations... Avoid that as much as possible. Have an open mind and just do what the DI's tell you and listen and learn everything they teach. There truly is a method to the madness of everything they do. Most of it won't make sense, and you won't notice a lot of the changes in yourself as they happen, but once you no longer have them telling when and how to do everything all the time, if you allowed boot camp to do what it is intended to do, you'll begin to notice you do things instinctively the Marine way and take pride in it. One thing you will learn, once you're a Marine, what you do and how you do it no longer reflects just you, it reflects all Marines. It sounds like you have the right attitude, and that's the best tool you can have. Never say die and always keep pushing. When times get rough, just put little goals in front of you. The little things will mold together to reach the bigger things.
    Until then, just get your 3 MILE run time as low as you can, pullups and crunches as high as you can. I know minimum IST is 1.5 mile in 13:30, 3 pullups, and 50 crunches or something like that... A perfect PFT score is 3 miles in under 18 minutes, 20 pullups and 100 crunches. Aim to make that YOUR minimum standard, so when you ship, you'll already be a step ahead of the guys who didn't do anything until 3 days before they shipped and falling out after a quarter mile.
