C.A.M.A: Day Forty-Four

C.A.M.A: Day Forty-Four
January 19th, 2013

Three weeks have past, but I have done nothing but studying and dreaming of what's to come for me in the future. Days go by like clockwork and hours feel like minutes. The dreams have taken a toll on me and I do not fear Timberwolves anymore since I kick their sorry butts most of the time and I have become proficient in my use of my equipment. I was thinking of documenting my improved performances, but I thought it would be best to describe when i'm faced with reality. Since I have not wrote anything of interest in such a long time period, I thought it would be good to do an update entry and what's happened so far. So, let's begin two days after the Tactics and Duties unit.

First, let's mention the fact that it's now the year 2013! Still can't believe it's been three months since i've arrived in Equestria. The first day I was alienated at first, but look at me now, i'm training to become an agent and like Night Hunter mentioned, most ponies in Equestria probably know about me.

Apparently, Equestria doesn't have New Year's Day, so that kinda sucks. To make the New Year's Eve more enjoyable, me and Night Hunter spent most of the night in the rec room having a pool and ping-pong competition that lasted four hours. It was eleven o'clock at night before we went to bed. Even Night Hunter made fun of the fact that we had a bedtime of eight o'clock.

"Oh-no, Caleb, it's past our bedtime. Princess Celestia's going to be mad." Night Hunter said sarcastically.

What Night Hunter said actually surprised me, but i'm pretty sure he was a little drunk that night, so he probably wasn't thinking straight. However, I decided to play along.

"Oh-no, I shit my pants." I snickered to the comment, so that was a good laugh for us both.

As I laid in my bed that night, I wondered what my family was up to. I wondered if they moved on from me and continued on with life or if they're still searching for me or not. It must suck for my little sister to not grow up without a brother, so I felt really bad and didn't want to think about it anymore real quick.

Five days after New Years Day, Night Hunter took me out to that secluded valley to do some target practice with the Iggy and the Timberferno. The snow had also gotten much deeper out there, probably two feet, had to use the Timberferno just to melt a path for me and Night Hunter to walk on. With the target practice and my dreams combined, i've become quite a crackshot with the Iggy and a real pyromaniac with the Timberferno.

About a week later, Night Hunter informed me about the finale exam that will decide if I graduate or not. He wasn't very descriptive, but he said there would be something big for the part two of the exam. He said he'd inform me about part two, one week before the final exam. I'm guessing part one is going to be on everything i've learned from Night Hunter's teachings, but part two, I do not have the answer at the moment. A theory that I came up with at first was that the two parter would be a dream about Timberwolves, but that seemed a bit redundant. Perhaps i'll be dreaming about something else then a Timberwolf, but who knows.

My little calisthenics past time exercise routine has also been showing results. I've mostly been doing push-ups both two and one handed, sit-ups, crunches, planks, and all that kind of stuff. Most results have been shown in my pecs, delts, tri's and biceps. So, as you can see, a lot of upper body results. I might start doing lower body exercises such as squats so that I have more variety. In order to keep my strength up, i've been consuming more MRE's than Night Hunter. Unfortunately, there was no meat related MRE's for high amounts of protein, but the MRE's we have right now contain some protein.

Speaking of physical changes, I think I grew about an inch or two about two weeks ago. I figured it out when I clonked my head on the doorframe for the bunks room, so i'm either seven foot-nine or seven foot-ten at the moment. Who knows, maybe i'm not done growing yet and will reach eight feet in height, but that may be a problem with getting into the Defender, yeah.

Another note, I finished reading the whole Equestrian history book. One memorable story i remember reading about is the "Sonic Rainboom." This event apparently happened on July 24th of last year, and Rainbow Dash was the one responsible for this event. What happened was that Rainbow was flying at incredible speeds at a downwards one-eighty degree angle and right when she was about to impact the ground, she broke the sound barrier. Most ponies described seeing a rainbow wave stretch out for more than half a mile before dissipating. Now from what I know, breaking the sound barrier is a phenomenon that only jets can achieve. So if Rainbow Dash were to break the sound barrier and create a sonic boom, she would have to be flying at speeds over seven hundred miles per hour. I was absolutely blown away when I read that story. Sure, Rainbow said she was fast, but I didn't think she was that fast. I'll have to talk to her about this.

Now focusing on the present. Today, I took the test for the Tactics and Duties unit and passed with an A+. This unit was pretty easy because it's what i've been doing in my simulated dreams. I don't know what the next unit will be on, but I do know that this will be the last unit and will last for six weeks and four days while the Tactics and Duties unit lasted for three weeks. I counted up the days and the last one landed on the 27th of February. So I guess i'll leave off until tomorrow morning.
