I finally got a day off! WOHOO! Lately, we have been working our ass off. Lately it has been about 4 to 5 hours of sleep a night, and almost out in the city twice as long as a normal 8 hour shift. Though, it has been very quiet. Probably that is a testament to all of our hard work lately. I won't be able to probably blog for 3 or 4 more days because of the work schedule.

Not much else has been going on. I have been watching season 1, 2 and 3 of the Family Guy for something to laugh about. It is funny out in the field, because when we are all just bull shitting with one another out in the city, we joke about stuff we see in funny movies or Family Guy. It is a great escape from reality.

You don't feel the stress put on you from all the dangerous stuff we have to do. Until, you go to sleep and start dreaming of bad stuff. Recently, I had a dream me and a buddy were in the United States but it was like Iraq where we were occupiers but the suburbs we were in very nice. Me and him raided a house, and as I looked out of the window I saw a car speed down the street and jump the curve onto the yard with grass. I yelled to my buddy "Fuck! It's a car bomb!" I ran but as soon as I started to run the car blew up and sent shrapnel all over through the house. My buddy was seriously hurt in the leg, I was miraculously unhurt. I woke up right after my friend was moaning from the pain and I ran to go an assist him. My buddies that had their vehicle hit by the suicide car bomber have report of having bad dreams every night of always seeing their truck getting blown up or something else. It is strange how you don't feel really nervous or stressed, but subconsciously, you are under alot of stress.
