    Bored in life, want to go military even tho good job/education SRS

    Title says it all. Sick of my officeling job, pays okay, around 30/hr, Relatively low stress, but its killing me inside lol.

    Miss the excitement that. football/throwing/boxing gave me. Im too old for football, too small and weak for throwing, and too heavy and low skilled to be a professional boxer IMO. If I get joocy or train uber hard I could possibly be a solid journeyman, but then Ill be a CTEbrah.

    My thoughts are thinking about trying to get into ranger school or some special forces type shiet. Im handy with a AR, am well conditioned/strong/fast and am strong willed. I was going to join before I had colleges giving me scholarships. I have a degree in finance and information systems. I want to still make money, but I need some adventure in my life.

    Any advice brahs? I know I have a otherwise good situation and this is the definition of a first world problem, but Im too high test crew for this officel chit so early on.

    The military isn't as glamorous as you think brah. If you don't make it through the special forces pipeline (which most people don't), you're gonna end up cutting grass, sweeping the motorpool, and standing in formations all day. You'll want to kill yourself for giving up the sweet life that it sounds like you have now.

    Op I'm 29 and also thinking about joining the Air Force. The Something about it that sounds so exciting.

    How smart are you? Try to become a Jet/Bomber/AC130 Pilot to avoid boredom. The military does have a lot of office politics. Also get into boxing, at least try it and get some amateur fights in. I actually started this month


    Otherwise just stack up money and travel or something? Or get a dangerous job like fire fighter?

    Don't romanticize the military. If you want to join then take an objective look at the job you'll be doing, where you might end up at and what your day to day life will be like.

    Fire fighter is a good idea, but they got wait lines and nepotism out the wazoo.

    And fuk brah I would love to be a pilot, but I got lasik and my nightvision isnt the greatest.

    As for boxing, I was a pretty high level shot putter for about 7 years, and I picked up boxing for a year or so after I cut down a lot of my bulk. I have a more powerful left hook than anyone Ive ever met in the gym, including professional heavy/light heavyweights, but there are obviously a hundred other things that make a good boxer that I currently lack, chiefly reach, even if I fight at 205.

    Idk brahs, what are some more high test jobs?

    the thing about the military is there are plenty of days where you dont do anything and you hurry up and wait. even for rangers/special forces/EOD guys, there will be high optempo moments and down time, training, etc.

    my recommendation to you is to follow your gut. you dont want to let the years go by, look back and realize that it's too late to even try.

    if you do join, have a back up plan if you dont make it through rangers/special forces. make sure you pick a MOS you enjoy doing

    Tbh brah there were two things that attract me to it. One is the adventure/risk, but I understand that 98% of the time youre doing bullchit like cleaning/conditioning/formations ect

    The other thing, is those private military brahs make absolute BANK. I was shocked at how much those dudes make. In theory, I would join a special forces unit(pipe dream Im aware) and then try and become a PMC once my tours over

    On a scale of 1 to autism, how bad of an idea is this? Been thinking about it for a long time.

    I've always regretted not joining the military. Went the typical college route, officecel job and now work for myself but still have days when I wonder how much more exiting my life would be otherwise. Kinda jealous of my old highschool buddies who are nearing retirement with lifetime health benefits while I have atleast 10 more years before I can even think of calling it quits.

    My thoughts are thinking about trying to get into ranger school or some special forces type shiet. Im handy with a AR, am well conditioned/strong/fast and am strong willed. I was going to join before I had colleges giving me scholarships. I have a degree in finance and information systems. I want to still make money, but I need some adventure in my life.

    Any advice brahs? I know I have a otherwise good situation and this is the definition of a first world problem, but Im too high test crew for this officel chit so early on.
    im with you brotha lol you seen my threads i feel exactly how you are right now

    Ill check it out. Im actually a really good swimmer, always felt I could go D1 for swimming but thats a NARP sport.

    As for my weight, its a non-issue for me to get down to 200 lbs. Just running two miles everyday for a few months would do it.

    And not interested in the cop route. I understand that youre a storm trooper either way for the american empire regardless of being a soldier or cop, but for many reasons the police force does not appeal to me.

    before doing this try a little experiment.

    Work all day then get up at midnight and go walk around a big empty building for 4 hours. Go back to bed but of course be back at work the next day. Oh, and do it for free and also do it every 4 days.

    Now go find the worst least qualified boss you can find and do whatever he/she tells you to do no matter how stupid or idiotic it is. Then get yelled at for screwing up the task even though you followed their rules to the letter.

    of course do this besides doing your regular job which of course is not getting done right because that boss too is an idiot.

    My personal favorite was working the 4-midnight shift, Then have an 8 hour watch, then get called into work at 1pm for a special meeting. Soon as you show up they tell you the meeting was cancelled so seeing as you are already there, day shift will be going home early. A little overtime wont hurt you.

    Of course, you dont get paid overtime, you just do it for free.

    This is what every military person goes though,. This is just day to day stuff too, nothing out of the ordinary.
    "To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other."-- Carlos Castaneda
