Me and my Internet

Husband, Dad, Navy Officer, Coder, and Tinkerer. I have many interests and am always looking to learn something new. This site is a launching point to the many areas of the Internet that represent me.

Night before MEPS

I’m in Columbus in my hotel room, night before meps. I got to the Holiday Inn, and the check-in desk directed me to a room that was converted for military use. In the room a guy was checking in people and giving instructions.

"Lights out at 2220, wake up calls have already been set for 0445. In your keys you will find two tickets, blue tickets are for dinner tonight, and red tickets for breakfast in the morning. You must be in your rooms tonight no later than 2200, so keep fraternizing under control. Do not do anything, drugs/alcohol in your rooms, and don't let it disrupt your testing in the morning."

Very quick and direct, I think he had said his little spiel a few times before. Luckily since I am an officer candidate, I got a room to myself. I got here around 8pm, and have been up here in my room watching episodes of ‘The Office’ on my laptop.

It’ll be bedtime fairly soon, since wakeup call is in 7 hours already… yikes!
