Another option, if the Army can't offer you what you want right now, go home and see how things work out. If things don't go the way they need to go when you get home then you can go back to the recruiter and see what other options they can offer.....

The needs of the Army change constantly...wait six months and everything will change....patience baby sister....patience....make sure you get what you want because another 3 years of doing something you don't like, or being somewhere you really don't want to be, can create other problems..

Go slow and take your time....

Well its official.......377 days left in the army.
(Absolutely terrifying thinking I'll be a civilian again. Like I do not even know hahahahaha)

Germany dropped. They want me to MOST to 35Q......I absolutely hate that job....and if I don't MOST then my only option is Gordon.

I could reup for need of the army and get a bonus.....of less money than a single paycheck. Yeah no thanks.

Or I can get out, try college and a part time job and see if I survive. And I'll have Charlie. So that's always a plus.


If I can't then hey I can always get back in. and maybe they'll have 88M (truck driver) or MP
Just time to get out of this 3 yr rut I've been stuck in on this island. Maybe Australia or Germany will open up to me later. Who knowssssss

You survived the Army......everyday after these are gravy.....just a matter of do you eat peanut butter today or do you eat steak today....????

You'll be fine no matter what......you can do anything your heart desires....be anything you want to be.....all you have to do is want it enough and try your best.

Now quit second guessing yourself and get busy with the rest of your life.

Besides....I think Charlie is ready to have you home....

Haha you nailed it. I second guess every decision! Lol
I've just had it so cush for the last 4years in the army I think I'm gonna have a HUGE wake up call outside. Not sure I know how to be a civvie lol


But I will have Charlie. I'm sure he's secretly dreading it because hell actually have to *gasp* work and be I. Shape lol

Idk. I'll miss the army for sure. I just wish it was like it was 3 years ago, when it was an awesome job to be in. Now its a joke.

What I'd really like is to convince my mom to get a nice beginners horse so I can take Red with me and Charlie to college. Then I'd have 4 yearss to whoop his butt into shape for her AND charlie would be happy to have his brother there.

Work has been....annoying. to say the least. I finally wrapped my head around the whole "get out" idea and then they can out with this new program in Reserves and NG.
Basically
-I could get out up to a year early.
-I could MOST to MP (what I tried to enlist for in the first place).
-I would get my training while still doing my active term
-Autopromote to E-5
and they would help me score a job related to what I would be doing NG side. I.e. something in law enforcement.

AND then there was an article about border patrol and customs looking for vets specifically to hire.

And the retention rep in my company is still trying to push for me to reup and trying to tell my the career counselor could score my duty station of choice....but I don't believed him.

Grrr decisions. It a sounds awesome. And all is something I would totally be interested in doing....minus reuping.

My friends are going off the deep end. Like I do not even know what is happening. They've lost their minds. They're b****y, pulling that whole "if you don't agree with me, You. Are. Wrong. I know everything and you're dumb" and I'm about ready to fight.

My stupid roommate is stupid and refuses to clean while acting all hoity toity I'm better than you. I'm gonna choke her out


But on the bright side.....
Soccer
Soccer is amazing and makes me happy lol. Our company decided to make a team for this indoor tournament that the post is having in April and our first practice was yesterday....we have a lot of work lol.

Only downside to it is o e of said crazy friends is being all grouchtastic and saying shell only play if she's goalie, making a big old deal about it. Just whatever nobody wants her attitude on the field (court? Indoor. PSH. Never done indoor. Just league and tournament outdoor haha)


Any who. Castle= very confused yet happy when playing soccer hahahaha

Also I was bores so I started making a list of stuff I want to do when I get my freedom
Freedom being getting off this rocks and going home lol.

All this rock is good for is sitting here and thinking of what you could do if you weren't here.

1. Buy my truck. Because yes
2. Buy a trailer
3. Teach Charlie to drive. Because there has been NOTHING I have thrown at him that he hasn't been willing to learn. That kid soaks it all up like a sponge. And I call him a plow horse anyways so.

I'm sure we probably have some harness materials in the giant car shed on the farm. Because there's EVERYTHING in that shed. Everything

4. Teach Charlie AND Red to drive together. Because they're lazy bums and need to work.

5. Skijoring. Also because yes.

6. Donkey.

7. Compete in Extreme Mustang Makeover

Obviously this all is over time. Not just immediately when I get home lol.


Enough randomness for today!
