    I'm proud of myself =D

    I just recently quit my job here in town to go back to my old job in another town which I was forced to quit because of the academy, and since I'm no longer in the academy til later this year, my sister offered me to come back for $3,000 a month until I test for the 2 police departments in May for the Officer Trainee position.

    In the past 3 weeks, I've done many things to keep my mind off of the academy. Mostly working out. I increased my run by 3 miles and I finally got my 1 mile under 6 minutes. I recently added diamond pushups to my routines and so far I'm at 45. With regular pushups I'm at 70. I'm only 130lbs....lol...give me a break.

    I also pre ordered my glocks (real & airsoft) for next year. I decided not to go to Egypt this June cause I don't want to risk of missing a call back from the departments I applied for. They usually do call backs 2 weeks after agility tests to start backgrounds. So deciding not to go on my trip just saved me about $3000 which is going towards a new car.

    see.. i knew you had a good head on your shoulders
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I am thinking your problem is academic, not physical. I recommend you skip a few cycles and hit the books instead...lol.

    Remember a grade of "F" does not mean "Fantastic"

    No, all kidden aside, keep in shape and focus on studies as well. Also the show "Cops" is not good training-FYI

    Sounds like you know where you are heading so keep going in that direction and good things will happen for you.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    San Joaquin, just waiting on the Chief's call cause I don't think I'm going to be able to go since I'm no longer in the Academy, he'll tell me whether I can or not.
