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~
