Yesterday was exhausting, and when I went to bed last night, it was still light outside. And after rolling around on the ground with an M-16 all day today, tonight will probably be the same. But the worst part of this training, by far, is having a lead instructor who really, REALLY likes to hear himself talk. Tomorrow night, we're staying out in the field, so I won't be back until Thursday afternoon, no doubt with dirt rubbed into my skin and a sweat-soaked uniform. This weekend can't come soon enough.
