    Well Ive been meeting with the local recruiter and really getting the ball rolling with this Army thing. I still believe its a good thing but Im getting nervous. Im positive its what I want though.
    I took my Army aptitude test yesterday, and did well. When I was in the waiting room I met a bunch of dope niggas that was joining too. Tomorrow or Friday Ill be getting a physical and then Ill be picking my job. I still have no clue what I want as a career, but Im not worried. Ill do something fun in the Army - right now Im contemplating a job where I jump out of airplanes or some crazy shit like that, if I dont want a career yet, might as well get something that will be fun. Ill take a few classes, play alot of bball..make cash, get scholarship money, meet dope mothafuckas, get out of the house, get in great shape. Then I get out in 3 years, Ill have college paid for with at LEAST 25 G's in the bank. And Ill be on my way to UF. Hell yeah this shits gonna be ill.

    it'll be ill until george dubya sends you to Iraq and you get smothered with Saddam Insane's wonderfully illegal aerosal chemical weapons.

    itsa good way to get $$$ for college, couple of my friends did it, but not very fun.

    I can't believe anyone who writes could possibly pretend to get along well enough with authority to have a successful military stint.

    if the army was all just money and fun everyone would be in it...they make it seem like it will be aweosme till you get there...some peopel do go for it and love it but alot of people end up getting brainwashed and coming back different all togther..and be careful with the money they say theyre giving you....somethhing like only 15% actually get the money they are promised.and then theres that whole pesky possibility of dieing over oil.

    the jumping out of airplanes thing isnt a job with in itself.. you pick a regular job.. and then you also ask for airborne (jumping out of planes)
    if i were you.. id go for air assault. you repel out of helecoptors ad shoot guns while falling. thats the shit.

    reconsider this shit. the army is not the way to go. i was going to join for awhile.. because i was only listening to the recruters input. listen to other people.

    i have considered the army for as long as i can remember. the military (especially the special forces) have always been of interest.

    i have talked to a recruiter about it. it seemed like a good idea at the time, but now that i think of it i'm glad i'm not going to go. whoever said that college will be harder is right. it's hard enough right out of high school. don't take offense to this, but in the military you're basically somebody's bitch for 4 years, and it's not all boy scout camp. except for special forces, most soldiers only fire a gun a few times and throw like one grenade. that one grenade is what most peoples' opinions are of "blowing shit up". correct me if i'm wrong, but unless you're a demolitions guy and/or in special forces then the grenade is all you get.

    you did mention airborne though. if i were you i'd try to be a ranger if i was going in. they get to do the most shit. that is what i was going for til i realized that i have a girlfriend and in a near comatose state of laziness.

    on the positive side, though, don't forget that (as far as we know) you only have one life. if blowing shit up and shooting guns sounds like it's what you want to do, go for it. there is plenty of other time to grow old and settle down. no time like now to go out and have fun.

    what most people on here are telling you is right - about it not exactly being the most fun ever. talk to people in the army. no matter how excited they were to get in, most are extremely glad to be out. that should say something.

    probably the best advice is : "i was only listening to the recruters input. listen to other people. " - jungle cat.

    i hope i helped you in some way. good luck on whatever you do.

    Shit, Futura is the fuckin man.

    I know army life isnt all great. I know there will even be times when I downright hate it. I dont really think there will be a war. I honestly dont. Besides, right now Im thinking more along the lines of these jobs.
    -Firefighter
    -Water Treatment Specialist
    -Preventive Medicine
    None of them will be on the battlefield if there is a war.

    The firefighter job sounds good as fuck. They work 24 hours straight..but then get 3 days off. Shit I would love that. Most of the time theyre working is just waiting around - which means tons of studying time.
    Then the 3 days off where I can play ball, go to classes (which will barely be necessary with all the studying Id be doing), working out or whatever. But unfortunately it seems there arent many Army firefighters out there so the chances of there being a job opening are slim. Ill give it a shot anyway.

    I just think Army is a good balance of things. Its like Im on my own and out of the house, but I have most bills paid for and Im still under guidance. Its just a smooth transition from child to adult in my opinion.
