good times

The past week has been insane. For times sake i'll just cover the hallmarks.

I had my 15th birthday on wednesday, to which i have mixed feelings. On one hand, my parents sent me a new ipod( that i'm listening to right now!!). They also sent me a nice pretty chocolate cake! At first when the guard box called and told me that i had a package waiting for me, My immediate thought was that it was something useless and annoying like a notice or warning. However, when i heard it was cake I perked up considerably, and promply sprinted to the guard box.. After 5 others and myself had destroyed most of the cake, Pvt fletcher suggested that it would be a good idea to take the peice of cake to my PL (who PT'd me often for reasons of seal-dom) so that he might decide not to PT me. What me and my buddies didn't think about was that Bruelhart(PL) at that point had no idea that my birthday was that day. So, when I took the cake to Bruelhart with a cocky, ignorant smile He smiled took the cake and, as he was walking away, Looked back and put two and two together. " Glover is it your birthday?!?!?!" Doh!!!

The second incident happened yesterday. We all had a football game to attend and so i saw a group of my friends and headed over. So Nafus, SFC cariglio, contreras, Ledbetter, and bonhaff and me hung out in the bleachers all night. Got roudy, pissed off the constabulary, and other such shinanigans. By the end of the night we were all exhuasted. Now, i was cheifly awair that i had a formal inspection the next day. I had been ready for the inspection several days in advance and thought that i was done formalizing. All of the sudden my roommate comes in huffing and puffing and ORDERS me to help him formalize his side of the room. HE literally had done nothing to get ready for the inspection thus far. At first I was going to tell him that he was SOL but then my tired mind flashed-back to 2ndLT. Bruelhart informing me in specific that if my roommates side of the room looked like $#!T then i was going to get PT'd as well. So me and my roommate stayed awake until three this morning, got screamed at by a small, civy wearing, mustacio'd man who we later found out was the night TAC.Just to wake up this morning and get inspected this morning.

Our room Got giged alot during the inspection but we also earned several merits for various rifle tricks, knowledge, and wily banter with our inspector. soon enough it was over and as it turns out, because of our multiple merits, we actually did better then almost all of our RAT buddies. After the inspection we had a Parade. Which isn't nearly as exciting as it sounds but One of the coommandants annoucements afterwards made my entire troop happy. My RAT-daddy finally turned to a private and so our entire troop rushed up afterwards to hoist him up Since he considers me his protoge, he gave me his RAT belt buckle and I will wear it proudly.

Other than that, life in Roswel is normal and the corps is still feeling strong and motivated.

Before i get ahead of myself, let me start at the beginning. I'm no longer a RAT, i'm now a new cadet; and it's amazing. I'm allowed to connected to the outside world and wear my pretty white uniform. I've changed so much in the past three weeks and me and my troop are truly like brothers. Good and bad accounted for, NMMI is an amazing experience. I've never worked harder, or had as much fun in my life. Every day is a new challenge for me to overcome. I can't wait to hear from all of you. and if you want to conact me, My email is 000135425@nmmi.edu and i also now have my cell.

To start this post off with the right mood, I would like to describe to all you readers just how i awoke this morning....... BALD!!!!!!!
With that out of the way, last nights party was amazing. I'm sure that any fellow attenders would agree. Like most parties, the evening started out rather slow and relaxed. Friends hanging out and a few beers; sounds great i know. However, things definately heated up after a certain me was hurled sceaming into the pool by Drax0r and Osontx (hardly a fair match) after which everyone gathered around to share the love as my precious, flowing, locks of hair fell to the ground ( i'll only say it one more time, i think all of you are sadists). from then on out, the party was fun for all and i'm glad that all of you came. It truly was a worthwhile endeavor.

 what is up variouslly ascotiated humans, i just wanted to check in. 
     So far i have experienced almost cliche of a small town boy leaving home for the first time. About a week ago, my mind was quite literally " struck with the idea that( in just two weeks from now!!!!) i won't just be going to school; i'll be leaving home at the age of fourteen, undertaking what is sure to be the most difficult challenge in my life thus far, and adapting to a lifestyle and climate completely alien to my experiences thus far. 
      How did i meet this realization? I won't lie to any of you, i cried like a small child, many times. The funny thing is; in the midst of my greiving for my previous life, i realized that, contrary to popular belief, i am more ready for this now than i will ever be!! and i felt God Almighty Above give me the strength to carry on. 
      As for the other cliches..... it's all pretty standard: all the girls telling me they'll miss me, visits and conversations from people i haven't seen in years, people telling me things that i already know, amazing amounts of support from those who love me, friends who i cared for deeply trying to avoid me as if i were a lepur, and listening to enormous amounts of music.
      Recently i starting communicating with a current cadet at the academy who is full of useful advice to help me through. He has told me to think of him as a big brother. And ( like most other people) asked about my size and was amazed. (sigh)

 hey whats up guys i really don't have mch to write about but i felt that it was time for an update. 

so here's whats going on.................

just yesterday me and my mom went and shopped for several hours to purchase the items that i'll need to bring with me to school. we visited four different stores and still haven't gotten a few items, it's not too much to worry about b/c  i still have a few weeks until i depart.

meanwhile i'm feeling both excited and nervous about leaving home for the first time. my mom is doing her typical routine of stressing out but still maintaining her cool for the most part. Bob's definately also nervous about me leaving but isn't really the type to show it but he's been stressed also.

we're planning two party's the weekend before i leave, one with my parents friends( who are, for the  most part, just as proud of me as my parents), and one with my friends that are my own age who don't quite understand why i'm leaving but are non-the-less excited for me and are going to miss me.

sister still annoying, little brother still loud and cute, and friends still rather odd ( teens AND adults!!!) and ect ect ect on such fronts

my dream

My name is Joey Glover and my dream for the next four years is to go to the New Mexico Military Institute. I have this dream for many reasons;

 1: I intend to pursue a career in the United States Armed Forces as a United States Navy Seal.

2: I dream of attending college at the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.

 3: I yearn to obtain a higher education than can be given to me by the United States pubic education system.

4: I’ve heard my entire life about how my generation is the future and if that’s the case I want to do everything that is within my power to ensure that the world becomes a better place.

And 5: Like many young people in America I’ve always to belong to something bigger than myself.

As for the school, New Mexico Military Institute (also referred to as NMMI) is not only one of the best military schools in America; it’s one of the best in the world. This school has a very proud tradition of producing successful individuals and world leaders. Here are just some of its famous alumni:

  • Conrad Hilton, founder of the Hilton chain of hotels.
  • Hal Mumme, collegiate football coach
  • Chuck Roberts, news anchorman for CNN
  • Roger Staubach , famous quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys
  • Major General Edwin Walker
  • Frank D. White, Governor of Arkansas
  • Owen Wilson, famous actor

       This is way different than most kids that ask to go to a private high school. I’m doing this so that I can serve our country and protect the ones I love.
