This one's coming a bit early because Friday I'm a helping a friend move into a new place and immediately afterwards I'm headed to Florida Mall for a relatives birthday, so here's this months update. I haven't completely abandoned to whole video idea but I have to be in the mood to do it, typing out this crap is much easier and less a hassle for me. I'm a shy person, if you hadn't noticed, so me talking on camera is rather awkward, but that's enough of that. This is supposed to be a monthly "check-in", so without any lead in here I go. This month has been painful. I don't mean like physical pain, although there were moments. About three days after my last update I got food poisoning, granted I was much better than when I had a stomach virus you still couldn't pay me enough to go through that again. So I missed my friends graduation from OSUT*, he graduated from Ft. Benning and is now an Infantryman. As for me and my military career, I'm still stuck here until 14 October, but I have great news. The Army has me in their records as BCT* graduate, this is all based on my Army Training Transcripts which shows all my training that I've successfully completed and graduated from. When I ship out to Ft. Jackson, SC I am to give my transcript to the sergeant or drill sergeant that greets us and they should send me on the next available transport to Ft. Lee, VA for AIT*. Why is this such a big deal for me? I went through BCT twice, I am not about to go through this s--- a third time and my transcripts tell them "Hey, I'm not supposed to be here, send me to where I'm supposed to be." So I'll be at AIT for 13 weeks and I'll come home sometime in January 2015 MOS* qualified with no worry of being discharged for failure to be MOS qualified.
Going back to the civilian side of life, my classes are going well. As you can tell from my recent submissions I'm actually learning how to do things, I still have a long way to go but to be able to create something that is actually recognizable is cool. My stuff looks like s--- but I'm happy with what I'm learning, I no longer feel like my being on this site is as big of a waste. Now that I have a grasp, using the term loosely of course, of what I'm doing I hope to have more submissions for you guys, and if any of you have any suggestions that would help me with my works feel free to tell me, just don't be an ass---- about it. That's enough babble from me, I'll let you guys go back to whatever it is y'all were doing. Oh, but there is one more thing, this
