OCS: Check in the box
Hello gentlemen of 2nd Fitten. It's good to be back after completing my 6 weeks of training in Quantico, Virginia. I've successfully graduated from Officer Candidate School and only have about 36 hours of school between me and a commission.
If you'd like to know more about what it was like to be at OCS, I'll be filling everyone in on my personal blog HERE. While I was there I kept a dairy and I’ll be posting pieces of it on a daily basis so subscribe to the feed for updates.
As for my Syrian Co-PL
I spoke with Khaled earlier in the week. He's just returned from his trip to Syria where he spent time with his family among other adventures. All and all, he's doing the same thing's he's been doing since the summer began. If you'd like to know more give him a call. Perhaps he might want to start a blog where he can share with us what his trip to Syria was like.
An IMPORTANT issue concerning the upcoming GT Football Season
You're probably aware that the student ticket policy has changed for 2009. (A summary of those changes is available here) I'm putting together a block/group for this season. NOTE: If you want a guaranteed ticket, it will be $36. If you want to join our block, join the Facebook group.
Our block will no doubt be the loudest, most school spirited block in the stadium! NOTE: in your Non-FE housing, your RAs will probably not try to form a block. Feel free to invite YOUR friends to join our block, it does NOT have to be only former 2nd Fitteneers.
So In The Fall...
...Khaled and I MIGHT be going back to Fitten. The building is apparently staying open for this coming school year and I've been requesting that we get put back into the best floor on campus.
It won't be the same without you guys in there, but it is still better than Caldwell.
There is still a possibility we'll be living in Caldwell, but hopefully FFM remains our home
Like every good family...
Since we all know that 2nd Fitten isn't just a floor, it's a family, we'll be doing some type of family reunion in the fall.
Whether its doing a Friday Night Hangout where you guys join our new residents on our weekly tradition, or a cookout at the volleyball courts (Alumni Park), we'll do something that we can all enjoy. More details to come on that activity soon. It will probably occur within the first week or two of school since I'm sure everyone is anxious to meet up and share summer stories.
In addition to the reunion, we'll have that block so we can all spend some time together on game day (tailgate anyone?). In the mean time, there's always Twitter.
Enjoy the rest of your summer
I’m headed back to Atlanta on 31 July. Staff (PL) training starts on August 2nd. You already know my door will be wide open so drop by just to say hi or come down and relax with Khaled & I on west campus.
