I have lost some people, gained some, made some decisions, forgotten some stuff. Become overly happy with my life. Yeah, alot.
So, first I will start with my biggest, and most thought out, decision. In approximately seven months...and seventeen days, I will sign with the United States Navy for a five year contract. I have decided that this is the best route for me for numerous reasons. I figured out that in order to become a PR specialist and a war journalist, my best route is to join a military branch. Me being me, chose the Navy. I am greatly excited and very,very nervous. But feel that I am completely ready for anything the Navy may throw at me. I am ready to go to basic training at Great Lakes for 2 months, and then to proceed to a 6 month training in Fort Meade, Maryland. I am ready. For anything. I will become a Mass Communications Specialist. Doing photo journalism, video journalism, graphic design/editing, as well as website design...I will learn all of this in Maryland. I can honestly say that the worst part about basic will be cutting off my Red Bull; That's why my best friend, Nate, will bring me a 24 pack of the good stuff at my graduation. I feel as though I am destined to do some duty to my country, and I feel that joining the Navy, even if it is just for one contract, will suffice my internal need to represent and defend this great nation.
I broke up with my boyfriend. That was tough, but needed. That was a whole thing with interpersonal issues. Regardless, that affected me a bit. But I mostly needed that. I work best as my own person when it comes to personal life.
Ever since I made my decision to sign with the Navy, I have been very happy. Extremely happy. I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and that I don't have as much worries anymore. I only have to worry about my ASVAB scores now. I have to achieve a 110 in two selected areas. On my first practice test, I got a 180. On my second test, I received a 190. Oddly enough, you need a 190 in order to do my brother's job. Exciting,no?
Speaking of my brother... Him and I are basically stopping our relationship and friendship. Given the fact that he is the only person to not offer some sort of advice with this vital decision, I also have attempted to speak with him about random stuff, but I haven't talked with him since Christmas. Therefore, I am done with him. We may be brothers, but we don't have to be friends. Although this was a tough decision, it had to be done.
I guess not alot of stuff has happened lately, or maybe it just feels it to me. I guess. I don't know. Once again, I love see y'all's ideas and comments towards my life, so please do leave something...even if it is a "Military sucks"; Yes, I have already received negative comments towards my decision...too damn bad to them. I love my country, I don't care what other people think.
