i think its stupidly ironic that the army advertises "communication communication communication" and yet they don't communicate.....
I had to PERSONALLY go to Top (1sgt) and ask him who I belong to now platoon wise because all I had heard before was rumors from an E-2 that I was in 4th plt....so I went to my old PLT Sgt and he wouldnt say.
Anyways. So my NEW plt sgt just sent an email out with the names of the people taking a pt test next tuesday....guess whos name is on the roster...tahts right this chick.
I havnt had a ptin a YEAR. I was supposed to have one in march but I got hurt so now that I just got my permanent profile (after 6 months of fighting it.) they think "oh lets throw her in and get her one".
Granted...its just a DIAG but the thing is the old army standard was 2 failed RECORD pt tests and your kicked out of the army....new standard......any 2 pt tests, diag or record failed and your out.....
I havnt run in 6 months....all I can do now is the walk because I got messed up. Now everybody says that ANYBODY can do the 2.5 mile walk in under 35 min..but I've never tried so of course im freaking out because I've never done it and if I fail this diag and then have my record 2 weeks later....tahts not much time to really practice the walk and all that....its whatevs I guess...idk.
Im just glad I only have 3 more days of work this week...then the big 5 mile parade on saturday and HOPEFULLY I can FINALLY get on Champ sunday...poor kid hasnt been ridden in 4 weeks.
Blerg...this week is going SOOOO SLOW.
But on the bright side...i just bought an iBook G4 that im SUPER STOKED about! Yay! Ill finally have a quality computer (i now have 3 hahahahahaha)
