I'm seriously considering it. It just seems like my life is going nowhere right now. I really would like something to jump start my life and get me going in the right direction. Maybe it's all the great benefits and such, but it just seems like a good idea to me. I wouldn't do anything until the summer because of previous commitments...but I'm really thinking about what I should do. With the economy in the shape it is I can't find a reliable full time job. It sucks, I look everywhere and nothing. I have a car to pay for, insurance bills, a cell phone bill...and without a job it sucks trying to get the bills paid every month. I'm trying everything I can, but it's so hard to get a job. No matter how many times I send out my resume or call places, no place is hiring around me. Moving out isn't even an option financially, I'm really lucky my parents don't mind me living at home and pay for my housing/food. Obviously joining the military would be a major commitment, I'm pretty scared to commit myself to something that serious. I don't really know just what I'd do, I definitely wouldn't want anything that would send me to war. It just seems like I could be happier doing it though, I'd be a lot less stressed out trying to make ends meet...and I could actually do something with my life. Anyone here have any experience with the military? Any stories, tips, advice... I'm not signing any papers or doing anything just yet, I'm definitely researching everything and stuff first...but I'm looking for anything anyone has to say about this.
