I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to sit and type a long post tomorrow (May 19) so I’ll just go ahead and do it now.

So, tomorrow afternoon I will be taken to a hotel in Tampa and will spend the night there, and the next day (Tuesday, May 20) I will be at MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) finishing the very last of the paperwork and medical check-ups. After my final swearing in ceremony, I will board a shuttle and be taken to the Tampa Airport, where I will get on a plane and be flown to San Antonio, Texas. And from there on, go to the Lackland Air Force Base and begin basic training.

So I will be gone for at least eight weeks. After I graduate, I may try to get some Internet access, but I will likely be very busy heading to Tech School and settling into my dorm room and doing classwork. I likely will not have my laptop, all my belongings will only be sent to me when I get to my duty station, whenever and wherever that is. So I will not be around for a few months. As soon as I have a job with a steady schedule, and my own laptop back, I will make a return post. Until then, I must say goodbye.

Of course this account will remain open, but I will not be able to respond to anything you send me after tomorrow. I apologize if there is anything urgent you need to tell me, but I simply will not be able to get to my computer during basic training. There will be no time whatsoever, heck I’ll barely have a chance to talk on my cell phone with a single family member.

I’ll miss you guys, and I’ll be sure to tell you everything once I can. Just wish me luck, I am extremely nervous but very happy at getting to do something with my life. I am an adult, it’s about time I take charge. I have signed up for at least six years, but I hope to make a career out of this and go for twenty years. After which, I can actually retire. And then I can pursue further interests, such as publishing a novel or doing art commissions or something to bring in extra money. Here’s to hoping I make master sergeant or something. :D

So bye for now, and wish me luck~

Am I the only one that is quite honestly sickened by these kinds of posts? Dads don’t act this way around their sons’ girlfriends. Neither do the moms. Yet they feel the need to ‘protect’, or should I say, possessively guard their daughters as if they’re property. They’re not. They are living, thinking people with their own choices and opinions. It is their choice who they date, and I wouldn’t appreciate a parent attempting to intimidate my partner, that would only cause me to hide the fact I’m even dating anyone.
Yes, boys are dangerous to girls. We know this. But trying to scare your daughter’s boyfriend with a shotgun and crap? That is very threatening and unnecessary, in my opinion. If the boy does something that the father finds worrying, then he can do it. But the mere fact that he is dating his daughter does not make him an immediate threat.
So dads, stop acting like your daughter’s boyfriend is a wild animal. Wait until he actually does harm, or try to harm, your daughter. Then you can fill him with lead and bury him in the woods somewhere.
and let’s not even get into the history of men essentially considering themselves superior to women and treating them like property and absolutely controlling their daughters but letting the sons run free because you know that is still the mentality even today
(and to make things worse, my dad reposted this. If I ever get a partner, I am NOT telling him without my own shotgun in hand)

I just want to let everyone know that I jogged about three-quarters of a mile without stopping and it only took me about eight minutes.

that may not sound that impressive but considering i’ve been a lazy SOB since graduating back in 2013, who could barely run about fifty feet without being out of breath, it’s some vast improvement

i’m probably still gonna suffer during basic training though they make you run like a mile and a half without stopping aaahhhh
