Almost there

Well, everything in Fargo went well! I scored an 87 on the ASVAB which is better than I was thinking I would do. I was relieved when that was done. Trying to remember highschool math was a bit harder than I thought it would be, but I guess I did good. Everything was normal on my physical too. Though I found out I have flat feet. I still have about a month before I can swear in because of a tube I had in my ear back in December. I think I'll be headed back up to Fargo around June 6th. Can't wait!

Well, another tax season is over and done with. Its nice to slow down a little. Working a million miles an hour was getting old.

I don't remember where I was with weight last time I posted, but I made weight last week! I weighed in with my recruiter at 202lbs. That was a really nice feeling! I've been able to eat a little more than before now, but still have to be careful. Tomorrow I head to Fargo to take the ASVAB and my physical on Thursday. I am actually pretty excited! It feels like its been a long time in the making. Then I have to wait 45 days or less for the Surgeon General to approve my paperwork (because of the plates in my jaw) and then I can go in and take my oath, hopefully sometime around the end or middle of May. Then its just a waiting game. They will line me up with a job and send me off. I could be gone as early as June or as late at October. Depends on how picky I want to be.

On a side note I made an 8 mile run on Sunday. Thats the longest run I've done yet. It felt really good! Had my knee not bothered me so much I might have tried to go a little farther.
