Post 200

And it's about me falling down. I wouldn't say i ever truly passed out...

We were marching outside for freshman orientation (and since i wanted to be a squad leader, i had to attend) and it was really hot. So everyone knows that I get really dizzy and can't see and then fall and whatever when it gets too hot. So obviously that's what happens today as well. I go, "Sean, I need to sit down" and he probably said something back, but I already took a step forward and then fell. Now this is where my memory of this stops. According to over a dozen other people, I got right back up, and then immediately fell back down. Mr. Lavelle and probably Mr. P (since he was around me this whole time) along with Tricia and my squad (Moria, Blair, and Sean) assisted me to sit down, and this is where I remember Mr Lavelle asking me if I was okay. I got water poured all over me, which i honestly did not mind. Everyone was sent back to continue marching, but not for long, because it was getting too hot. Mr. Lavelle stayed with me until it was time to go inside, and then i was helped by like thirty or so people inside. Jay was on my poison ivy side, i remember, and Blair right on the other. Then there were people everywhere else, but I still had trouble seeing, so I couldn't tell you who they were. My squad, Tricia, and Jay then stayed behind with me to get all bandaged up. It hurt a whole lot (not as much as it hurt to get it off though as it stuck to my knee). I really appreciate everyone helping me out. I'm so glad I have such good friends. I just hope this doesn't ruin my chances of squad leader...

Congratulations on your 200th post!

And yes, it was also very hot up here yesterday. I almost passed out myself. But the rest of the day made up for it.
