Message from the army
It's been quite nice staying here in the army, now I'm going to share you some of my stories:

Day 1:

Today we found out where we will live for the next 8 weeks, we also got to meet our team mates. I was shocked by the lack of weapons we had when we received our first pack of items we're going to need every day here in the army. First day was busy, just like in any mmorpg.

Day 2:

Hurray for early wakeups. I didn't sleep at all during first night, just rolled around the bed all the time. During second day, we boosted our stamina by marching to the military restaraunt and back to our group appartement. I think I'm going to be good in this mmorpg.

Day 3:

Have to go, been busy. First time I reached computer. Nights are good. We got our weapons, but our skill isn't high enough to shoot em. Tomorrow we will learn how to disarm and re-arm those pieces of mass destruction. This mmorpg is coming better all the time.
