Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. So today was C.O.T.C. graduation. I got my ribbon, and certificate, but not my ranks because I cannot have a D, and I have one D. BUT that D is a 69.4 and I need a 69.5 to have a C. So I don't have to do very much to get that grade up. I've already completed an assignment that was missing in the class that needs the grade up. So either tomorrow or next week, I will get my ranks. I've gotta say. It feels SO good to have the literally sweat, blood, and tears all be worth it. I even lost my grip on reality for a few minutes and started arguing with this voice in my head telling me that I wasn't going to pass and that there was no point. But my best friend snapped me out of it before any of the instructors noticed (who knows what would've happened if they saw that). So I proved to myself that I can do it. We may not have been the first C.O.T.C. flight to have had every cadet pass, but we were the C.O.T.C. flight to have every cadet make it to the final day without quitting. And that's a great accomplishment. How have yall been?
