Do you ever get the feeling of being pissed off at everything in the world, and you don’t know why? That can sum up about a quarter of my week here. Sometimes I just wake up and I’m pissed off at everything and everybody for no particular reason. And then, it is as if somebody moved the light switch, things in my day go back to normal. At times everything that has happened builds up, and it keeps building, until we release that energy somehow. As the days go by, I can see that people’s fuses are shorter and shorter, I can only imagine how this will go eight months into the deployment.

On the bright side, getting care packages, makes my day feel like Christmas morning. The entire world could be on fire, but for that brief moment of opening the package, nothing else matters. It is a similar feeling to getting letters in Basic Training. Just the fact that people I know show how much they care, makes everything we do worth it.

Yes, some of the quotes are vulgar and downright wrong, but these are quotes that I have heard Throughout my career. These quotes are not a representation of what the army believes, so don’t blame the army.

“You know why nothing grows out here? Because this fucking place is infected, infected with stupid motherfuckers”

“Imma hit you with that right click save as”

“Dude his face just went away”

“Hey somebody threw a wrench in the trash”

“Once I got e5 I said, what do you mean I have to watch grown men piss? What do you mean I have to make sure these sandbags are straight and making sure they don’t have dirt on them, they are sandbags. That is when I realized that this was not for me”

“The army needs to stop listening to the government”

“I’m not moving my shit, that motherfucker is moving his shit, I guess he’s staying with a roommate the whole fucking year”
