    to San Diego MCRD! By request, my ship date was pushed up 1 month.

    Tips/comments/flames --- are welcome!

    I'm okay with the yelling, but whenever I receive instructions and told to do them quickly, I get nervous and fumble around :noes: --- i'm a goner!

    lolololololololololol.

    sup biyatch. i bet ur getting nnnneervouussss:rofl:

    Its gonna suck.

    Hard.
    Long.
    Long and hard, it is gonna suck.

    3 things to remember:

    1. Do your fucking BEST at everything, becuase it is what you make of it. You are going to come out a Marine no matter what, its up to you(well at least somehwat) what kind of Marine.

    2. There are alot of people counting on you. Family, friends, the fucking world brother. Lots of people that dont even know they are counting on you are. But, also remember that you have everyones support too.

    3. No matter WHAT, it is worth it in the end. That is probably the most important thing to remember.



    PS..did u join just so u could feel welcome in this forum?? :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    if the drill instructors know your name by T1 you're permanently fucked. :mamoru: hello 2 hour firewatch.

    if you can, be a scribe. they're usually the first one to "get" the idea of how bullshit boot camp really is and why you guys are constantly sent to the pit

    this man speaks truth. if u do some really dumbshit theyll probably know ur name by T1. this is not a good thing. you will see why. and even if u dont do some dumb shit...if u just look wierd or ur mom trys to call or some other shit thats not ur fault could cause them to know your name too. so i guess maybeeee pray? :x:

    try ur damndest to stay out of the spotlight whether for the good or bad. stay low for awhile.

    honestly ur gonna forget all this shit when u get there because its so fucking crazy but owell :p

    What address would I give? Assuming I give it after I get to San Diego, how would I get it out?

    Or will I know that before I leave?

    My recruiter gave me an address before I left..but it was wrong. big fuckin surprise there. so you could try to get an addy from him. otherwise write someone on OT first and theyll post it if u want*id highly not reccommend this* talk to roblesgt? i think, about that

    You will get a detailed or complicated task done much faster if you go slow enough to get it done on the first try than if you rush through it and have to repeat or fix things you do wrong because you didn't take the time to do it right.

    ...and you do NOT want to have anyone post your address on OT. BigFodee went through bloody hell from all the gay and goatse letters and toys that flooded his mail. :bowrofl:
