Well, well. Hey guys. Know what? I'm back!

"How is it in the army?" you ask me, heh. The answer to that, sadly but luckily, is "It's not."
Yeah, I don't have much time now, so I'll be fast with this:
I started the army just as everyone else doing it the same time as I did. I was even placed in my unit's top team. The first week was pretty great, don't get me wrong though, it wasn't exactly fun, but it was great. The second week started out good too, what en experience, throwing nearly 30kg (66,1lb) of field gear on your back and heading out to a shooting range at 7 in the morning with bikes, the temperature being something like -20°C (-4°F) and not wearing enough clothing just because you're not allowed to! :D We left before sunrise and returned after sunset. That continued every other day that week until friday, when suddenly my old knee injuries started showing symptoms. To the doctor it was, and after that, I spent about 3 weeks either hanging around doing nothing, or doing really little. I was diagnosed with an afterstate of this old syndrome that I had when I was about 13 years old, where my knees develop this repetitive stress injury. It was supposed to dissapear before I turned 18, and they kinda did, but now, just before I'm 20, they reappeared. This meant two weeks of walking with the aid of painkillers (since I wasn't able to walk without them). After that, I suddenly got a high fever, so I was hospitalized for a week. After I got released from the hospital, the doctor examined my knees again, and decided that it was only good for me that I didn't hang around there any longer.
So, here I am. Done with the army, not in 362 days, but 39.
I'm not allowed to run, or do anything more than walking with my feet for 3 months.

That also means that I'll be here on a regular basis once again. So feel free to send notes, comment or whatever, I'm here to reply!

Now I'm heading out to the gym to work out, except for my feet, sob. Oh well. Take care everyone!
Cheers :)

You poor thing!

I've had knee problems and I have a great deal of sympathy for anyone with limited mobility.

Take it easy.
