So yeah, decided that I'm probably enlisting. Went into the recruiter with a friend today.. was originally going to look more into the Air Force, but apparently they don't have a recruiter in the area anymore. So, we talked with the Marine recruiter and we were there for three hours or so. Guy was pretty cool.. actually only a year older than us. He was a Corporal at age 19 and led twelve soldiers.. found that pretty crazy. But yeah, not sure what I'll do if I do join.. I'm definitely going to go for an officer, though. Going to take classes and such while I'm in. I can still be a pilot, too.. so yeah, that interests me. But right now I just want to get the test out of the way and look into everything else. Kinda might suck to be an officer though, I mean.. it'd be better.. but I don't see myself commanding others, y'know? xD They start you off with a fire team (you and three people), but still.. I dunno.
It's just.. I want to do something, y'know? I know later in life I'll look back and regret never joining. And no, I don't believe in the war over in Iraq.. frankly, I may choose something that doesn't involve fighting, something simple. But still, getting through boot camp would show me that I can overcome a tough challenge. I just want to prove to myself that I can do it. ;/
The video about boot camp was kinda funny. xD Right when the bus arrived the drill instructor got on and was like "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING ON MY BUS, GET THE FUCK OFF". xD I dunno. I could take that, but I worry more about small things like.. WHAT THE FUCK WILL I DO IF I HAVE TO TAKE A CRAP WHILE WE'RE OUTSIDE ON A COURSE? Haha. Ah well.. Sark and I are both going to think it over. He wants to finish his classes first, which are almost done.. and I gotta get this all medical ordeal done and over with.. so we'll see.
Who knows what'll happen though. One thing that's cool is I may be able to get stationed in Japan, which would be awesome. ;o He said that it's not always 100% chance you get to pick where you go, but you have a better chance on getting to where you want than not getting to. Heheh..
