Today I came into the ROTC house to work on some homework for another class and our Msgt came up to me about the APFT coming up. He asked if it was possible to make it to the APFT they were holding at Fort Bragg for the contracted cadets. He told me that he knows I'm not contracted yet but since I have my packet already submitted he wanted me to take it with them anyways. That was a pick-me-up! About an hour later, our Captian comes into the house and asks to see me. I was pretty nervous since he's been having people come see him about contracting and letting people know whether they might be able to contract or not. I was pretty nervous I'm not gonna lie. As I'm standing at parade rest he tells me "Here's the deal Gilfranzo" (Yes that's how he says my name lol) "There's only one MSII scholarship they are giving out this year and you've been nominated for it. You're competing against one girl from FSU and she's high speed like you. So you better be at the APFT at Fort Bragg and score a frikin 300 on that PT test you hear me!" I felt my body go numb....a scholarship! I was freaking out about not getting contracted and now I'm up for a scholarship!!!! I want to hug the crap out of him LOL. I've never felt so nervous and so proud at the same time!
So for the next week and half I will be training hardcore for this PT test. I need to be in the best shape of my life and run the fastest I've ever ran in my life if I want this scholarship. Which I do! I want it more than anything else! I really do hope I get this, it would seriously make my year official. So I'm asking ALL my friends and family to keep me in your prayers while I train hard for this and the pray REALLY hard for me at 0600 on the 16th of November LOL. Tomorrow is Friday! Yay! Have a great weekend ya'll. =)
