Hey everyone.
Sorry I'm so sporadic lately, but I discovered my midterm marks and damn near choked. So I'm knuckling down and getting it done.
this is really just for the anonymous poster who asked "Can you even carry a rucksack??? or shoot a weapon?"
Despite my initial irritation at these questions, I remember not everyone knows everything about me, so here we go:
Can I carry a ruck? I've been on four wilderness challenges which attached a ruck to my back for two days each. two of them totalling over 50 miles. When I was 15. The ruck weighed more than me. To be fair, It's not as much as I would have to carry if I was truely enlisted, but it's a start and more than your average civvy.
Can I shoot a weapon? While I don't have the extensive knowledge most military guys posses of all different types of firearms, I have had the fortune to fire .22's, .303's, and C7's. I've also fired Daisys but I'm train to gain a little respect here. :P I actually qualified for my crossrifles and crown with the C7. It's been a while since I've practiced, but I can still remember how to strip and clean the rifles. (funny joke we had a .303 with 2 riflings. !!2!!)
The difference between getting fucked at my cafe job, and getting fucked in the military is: I'm expecting it in the military. I've acknowledged it. But it's also more likely to be legitimate, by-the-book fucking than some spontaneous back-stab from some low self-esteemed fucktarts who decide they don't like me.
Anonymous also expects that I'll have to let everyone into my pants to get anywhere. I don't know about that. I've heard rumors the the military promotes based on hard work and dedication. Can anyone set me straight to this effect? Not like I have issues with using my body to get ahead. It would just require more thought before joining. Do I want to respect myself, or get ahead?
All in all, I appreciate you telling me the way it is anonymous. I want to make an informed descision about this. The last thing I want to do is run off to play solider girl. I have absolute faith that the military has too many G.I.Jane wannabes.
So if you've read this post and laughed at my pathetic efforts, that's fine. I like laughing people. but, give me a chance. I miss the CF Greens.

Came to your post by clicking on "next blog".Think twice before you decide on anything.Anyway good luck in what all you do...and by the way regarding "Bride and Prejudice" the actress is Aishwarya Rai,an Indian.She must have refused to do the kissing scenes..because public kissing is still a taboo in India..(oh by the way I am an Indian working in Middle East)

Take care..and please enable word verification for adding comments.
