What am I doing? (11)

So I graduated from high school with high hopes of getting into the military- but since I started getting more "active" of trying to go in- the longer the process- the more I feel a bit "skeptical" about my decision. I recently came back from an anime convention- and thought it would be great to go to community college and work my way to a college of choice- and enjoy friends, anime and cons. But right now- I'm not doing much- the delay for the military is biting my nerves. I don't have a job, though I wished they hired sooner... I just sorta feeling like I'm torn between things I think I should do and what I want to do...

I actually decided not to join the military for the same reason 6 years ago. I just didn't want to spend my late teen/early twenties doing that sort of thing instead of having fun and the like.

Borrow money and go to college. Get a credit card and help finance your con trips. :3

Going into the military is way too big of a decision to be doubtful of.

I think if you're not 100% sure it's what you want to do, you should wait awhile and go to college and enjoy your college years.
The military will be there in a few years; your youth won't!

>>3True, but if he joins the military and makes it out alive, they'll pay for his college. 's what my boyfriend did (although now he's several years older than most of his school peers...and draws disability 'cause they fucked up his knees....) On second thought, if you can afford school without the military, don't go!

It takes four years of your life that you never get back!

Only go if the alternatives are worse!

I joined the military in 1999, and I wished I would have just gone to community college! Now I'm 27 and still a year away from graduating.

I have a friend from work who joined the army back before 9/11. He ended up going to Afghanistan. The stories that he tells me are horrible. He hears the screams of his dying comrades, he has nightmares where he recalls times where he traveled over a landmine with his fellow men, and ended up wearing his comrades flesh over his uniform. He can't even watch firework displays on television, or he finds himself huddled under a table. He works at UPS and doesn't even have a shot a college because he has neither the finances nor the stability of mind to do anything but labor jobs.

My advice: Avoid joining the military if at all possible.

a friend of mine dropped out of college twice and is now in the army repairing helicopters. hes not happy there either it seems. maybe less miserable than before, but i think hes starting to realize its a dead end as a career path and it depresses him. as someone with a useless liberal arts degree who is currently back in school for an actual useful degree, i agree you should go to college, but make sure its for something that will get you a job in the end instead of leaving you in debt while you work for barely over minimum wage.
