    ” Recruit Guaman’s arms shake in the front leaning rest position over a puddle of his sweat on the quarterdeck. There’s nothing restful about that position. “Mountain climbers,” screams the drill instructor as his fists rest on his green duty belt, “in cadence, exercise: one-two-three.” Guaman limply lifts his left foot from the floor. The muscles in Staff Sergeant Baker’s square jaw flex as he grits his teeth. He kneels, jabbing his index finger with laser precision at the air near Guaman’s face, “What do you think, Goo Man?” The Drill Instructor turns and barks to the platoon, “Did they make some kind of fucking mistake in MEP’s? Are you supposed to be polluting my beloved…

    “Down, But Not Out.” “There it is Privates!” Drill Sergeant Gonzales yelled. As we all rounded the narrow and winding road through the Ozark Mountains, my heart began to race. All 250 of us slowed down to form a formation in front of what appeared to be the biggest climb we had seen and were not expecting to see for the next few weeks. Screaming at the top of his lungs, Drill Sergeant Galloway said “This is Engineer Hill, and starting in two minutes you all have thirty minutes to make this…

    tiring, I still couldn 't close my eyes. There were so many thoughts racing through my head. My drill sergeant 's orders on what to do and not to do, my squad member 's names, and where everything was. My day started rough and ended rough, and I assume it is like that for many other people that arrived here today. The drive to the landing strip consisted of our drill sergeant yelling orders at us and claustrophobia. We rode here in a small cattle truck barely large enough all of us. The…

    The central advantage of CTD is its ability to drill underbalanced (closed wellbore) safely.

Drilling underbalance also increases drilling bit performance and does not run the risk of inflicting formation damage during formation penetration (Kumar, 2011). Another great asset of CTD is the elimination of the repetitive process of…

    I was scared that my mom would be the first one, but as luck may have it, she was. When we were all seated she looked at me with a smile full of nerves and angst. Every emotion was racing through my mind as the plane came to halt. I was laughing, yet felt terrified as my mom stood up. All eyes were on her. I was holding on to my seat in fear and anticipation. Before I even had time to process what was about to happen, my mom and her instructor were gone like the wind. I remember feeling so proud…

    demanding perfectionist instructor, who both share the same dream but have different ways of achieving it. Terence Fletcher doesn’t hesitate to use his own technique of racial, religious, and gay slurs, throwing chairs, and playing degrading psychological game to “motivate” his students and Andrew Neyman doesn’t hesitate to back down and use it to push himself beyond physical and psychological limits. In the last scene of the movie where Andrew is playing the song Whiplash and plays it in…

    seem odd that a place associated with sweat, blood and physical pain mean so much to someone. However, in my eyes it's almost like a second home. A certain familiarity is developed over time that makes it home. Sitting here I can vividly picture being there. I drive my car into the pot-hole filled parking lot off the highway and park in the same spot I always have, people just seem to know that's my spot. Walking around to the back I open the brown door and enter. The familiar damp…
