Update from the Academy
I've just completed week 13, leaving only 19 more weeks until graduation. To date, I've lost 26 pounds, earning me the nickname "anorexic" from my fellow classmates. Don't worry; I'm not really on the "Karen Carpenter diet", my weight loss is due to the intense physical training and sudden change in my diet. Believe it or not; Pop-tarts and Count Chocula are not part of a well balanced breakfast if you run five miles a day. Go figure.
In the academy, it's tradition to name your gun. Most of the guys go with the standard "Lucille" or "Eleanor". My primary sidearm is "Mary-Kate" and my back up is "Ashley". Together they're a full house.
