So I came to a decision about joining the military... and since I mentioned it on here earlier I thought I would just post my final answer, which would be: eh, no.
I was seriously thinking about it up until last night at work, when one of my customers compared working at Safeway to being in the military. Strict, all-consuming, soul-sucking. And I absolutely can't stand my job, so how would I do in the military. Probably not to well. The more I thought about it, the more I think that it's not the kind of life I want for myself. I want personal freedom and honestly, that's not what the military is well known for. I want to have kids and get married and I can't do that if I'm always gone. I want to wear what I want, say what I want, do whatever I want when I want to do it and so, the military isn't a good place for me. Money-wise, hey, maybe it's great, but that's the wrong reason to join. Besides, I don't take directions very well.
On another note, I may be going to Portland, OR in a couple weeks. I want to check out a couple schools down there. Oregon Culinary Institute and Reed College perhaps. Check out the job scene and housing options. I would love to live in Portland, it is an awesome place.
Anyway, just another day in the life of me. I'm going to go now, talk later.
Today I shall be witty, charming and elegant...
Or maybe I'll say "Um" a lot and trip over things.
