I met someone from Tinder.

And, surprisingly, he’s awesome. We’ve been on four dates. He’s such a gentleman, like more so than any other guy I’ve ever been out with.

Seek respect, not attention. It lasts longer.

Drove to Michigan to kick it with these dudes.

Six-Word Stories That Are Absolutely Heart-Breaking

OH MY GOD.

You forgot the original six-word memoir by Hemingway - “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” 

When I did push-ups at home by myself, the most I could do in a minute was 15 (probably only 10 correct). For my PT test yesterday, I did 26 correct push-ups! It’s crazy what outside motivation can do to you. The sergeant counting mine was very encouraging.

Yesterday drill was pretty brutal. We did the PT test, random combat training with fake M4s, learned facing procedures, and then got fucking SMOKED when this kid left his weapon unattended. My body has never been so sore in my life. I did more exercise yesterday than I have all year!

Today was very chill and we got released at 12:30, so that was RAD.

Not trying to be rude but you realize recruiters will tell you ANYTHING to get you to enlist? They aren't required to tell you the truth. They told my brother he could finish college before they would send him anywhere and that was a load of horse shit. My grandpa was a recruiter and has told me they encourage you to lie your ass off to get people to join. Just keep in mind all the things they are saying to you may not be 100% true.

I’m gunna start this reply off by disclaiming and saying I don’t know everything there is to know about the military, but I have done my fair share of research on it, and I think I have a good understanding about the enlistment process (Again, this is just from what I’ve read and heard from people who have been in the Air Force).

But anyways, different branches of the military operate differently. Right now (As I’ve read), the Air Force isn’t desperate for recruits. I also read that the Air Force has the easiest time meeting their quota, so they aren’t likely to lie their asses off just to get you to join. And when I spoke to the recruiter on the phone, he read me the exact documents that state that single parents can join the Air Force. And when I asked him about Bell and tech school, he was honest and said, “I’m not really sure about that, but here is how I believe it will work.”

And as far as I understand, you sign a contract before enlisting. Everywhere I’ve read says, “If you’re recruiter promises you something but it’s not in your contract, it’s not a guaranteed thing.” So if your brother didn’t read his contract and enlisted, then it’s kind of his own fault he got fucked over. Before I sign any contract, I plan to read it through thoroughly and make sure everything is in there how it should be.

And also, everyone keeps telling me horrible things about recruiters, but who else are you supposed to talk to to get information and get enlisted?

I had to sign acknowledging my MOS, ship date for basic, length of AIT, and return home date approximately a million times before I swore in. If you somehow get duped into thinking you’re shipping at a different date, you’re hilariously stupid.

I swear, you could make a post saying “I think I want to fly hot air balloons” and suddenly every single one of your anons would become a hot air balloon specialist and tell you everything you’re doing is wrong.
