Have you ever felt like your days drag on? You wake up and it’s the end of the week by the time you can realize what has happened.
It seems like everything is intensified much more here. Everyone is always angry, the smallest things can set us off. And at the same time, things that have a hint of humor make us laugh like it was the funniest joke on earth. I am not too sure what to make of this. I’m sure some armchair psychologist will say that we are going through depression or something. It’s not my first rodeo being away from home, but for some reason this feels different.
We saw somebody with their beard neatly lined up, and we just started laughing uncontrollably for no reason. Maybe it’s the fact that we can’t grow facial hair? Quick, somebody needs to call Gillete and tell them about this great opportunity! Razors for the liberty! They can have Uncle Sam’s poster saying, “I want you to have a Gillete razor”, or something like that. Now somebody out there might ask, “was that supposed to be a joke?”, to which I will reply, “would it be funny if it was?”.
On second thought, yeah I think we are just going crazy.

Hope y’all had a Merry Christmas with y’all’s loved ones.

Tonight I am safe, tonight you are here with me. A full moon is out today and the funny thing is that it’s the same moon wherever you might be. We can run together in our memories but we can never be truly free. So as I put my boots on and ask you to hold my hand and follow me.

Here’s a funny story somebody in my unit told me yesterday.

so we had this stupid dude in my last unit, I’m talking about stupid.
So we all go to Ihop and you know they those “free wifi” signs as you come in. Well when the waitress came to take our order we all told him to order the free “weefee”, he’s asking us what it is and we just tell him to order it that’s it’s good. She takes our order and he asks her if he can have the free “weefee” and we all start laughing at the top of our lungs.

Sometimes it feels like this place drains the good from me. The days get slower and everything is a blur.
As I lay here tonight I’m glad to be part of something bigger than myself. But, I wonder, what is it like to be a “normal” person my age. Would I be going to college, I have no idea what my life would have been like if I had not joined. Hundreds of thoughts rush my mind and I don’t know what to do.
I remember when I would be on the Internet for hours back home, now with our limited connection, I see that they’re many things that we take for granted. Without Internet we all pick up different hobbies to keep our sanity or what’s left of it.
It is very easy to lose sight of your goals here and I try to do my best. Sometimes you just get tired of all the bullshit.
