I have been tirelessly filling out the novel of an application for the academy. I have been to the DMV, the Bank (for notarization), typed an essay, gathered reference letters, collected transcripts from high school and college, and have a physical tomorrow, FOLLOWED BY AN INTERVIEW AND UNIFORM MEASUREMENTS.
Hooray. I think that should be good news. The only thing I will have left after that is fingerprinting. I'm pretty sure my fingerprints will lead them to NOTHING. Knock on wood, but my driving record I had to obtain does not even have a single speeding ticket on it. I'm such a dork, but the thought of my insurance going up has always kept me from being too much of a leadfoot. I think the only ticket I have ever had besides parking tickets was my minor in possession. I liked beer before I was old enough, sue me.
I am going to drive an hour tomorrow to turn everything in, probably in a snowstorm. My stomach is in knots, but good ones. I'm ready to start now. BEST NEWS, I can already do most the requirements physically for the graduation of the class, imagine how much better I'll be after they work me to death. The requirements are ridiculously low for girls, I'm embarrassed to even tell you...
1.5 miles for girls age 25-29 Excellent 14:00, Good 16:12 (that's slower than a ten minute mile) Fair 18:45 Poor 19:15
Push-ups in 2 minutes, same age group E 24 G 19 F 13
Sit-ups in 2 minutes, same age E 40 G 34 F29
SERIOUSLY? Is that a joke? Hooray for exercise, I think I can rip this to shreds!
Have a great day all...
