Same for me. Well that is good insight to have on the date. Why did you recruiter say to expect that?
I'm not sure of the details on where they got that date, they just told me to expect it, with the caveat that it's not final until I get the FINSEL.
 
How is everyone keeping themselves occupied? I moved back home and I am starting to become a little stir crazy. Only so many hours in a a day that I can workout.
 
I've been hitting the gym a lot, studying Appendix B, and basically trying not to go crazy. I moved back home too. As much as I love my parents, they're driving me crazy. I was living on my own in NYC before this so it's quite the change.
 
I feel y'all. Went from living in New Orleans by myself to shacking up with my parents in a sleepy small town. So ready for Newport.
Y'all know where you wanna be stationed/what kinda boats you want? Anyone read any interesting books recently?
I've been reading some of stuff from here: http://www.navy.mil/ah_online/CNO-ReadingProgram/canon.html
San Diego and a Destoryer.

Read this book called Stealing Fire. Part of it went through all the neural science that SEAL Team Six has been doing to optimize performance. Really fascinating.

Anyone else thinking of heading out early to Newport a few days before we (eventually) start OCS to explore/acclimate to the area?

I'm planning to get there at least by Saturday mid-morning/early afternoon. Not sure if I'll want to show up too much sooner than that, maybe one day earlier, if anything. What about you?
