    I went from being out in sector something crazy like 90 hours a week to now 0, and the above is all I do all day now. I still have 5 fucking months left here. I love when the army just takes a giant pile of shit on top of me sometimes.

    i used that time for classes, reading, and going to the gym. some of my friends used it to contract various stds. my whole tour was auxiliary communication, so i had a shitload of time. basically i did anything i could do to not lose my fucking mind.

    About to ship over to join up with my unit. From what I've heard they are basically spending all their time inside the wire. Getting ready to go over and lift some weights for a couple months and pack up and come back home.

    for all you geniuses buying amazon...if you're doing it with a lot of fiction books, i recommend this

    1. download mirc
    2. join server 'undernet'
    3. join channel #bookz
    4. download all the fiction shit you want - theres a lot of good books out there
    5. read in word 07 with the split screen, works real good
