Hey guys! I know it’s been awhile but I just got home (2 wks ago tbh just been lazy lmao) from basic training and AIT. It was definitely an experience, one that majority of people won’t really understand unless they’ve been through it. It definitely has changed my perspective on many things and made me see the change in myself which I’m very proud of. There’s still moment when I don’t believe I actually got through it but then I put on the uniform and it tells a different story.
