Hey guys, I'm really thinking about joining the military, but I'm not sure if it's THE thing for me. We have a career day kinda thing, and I'm debating between doctor (infectious diseases) or military. I'll list out some traits, I guess. I'm 15 right now, btw. No problem being treated like dog shit. At all. 7 minute mile time Pretty apathetic. No problem obeying orders. Like in that one episode of Malcom in the Middle, I'm like Reese. The world's happiest tool (as long as the work doesn't require thought). Good shot. I've only fired 2 different rifles ever on a couple of occasions, but I'm an excellent pistol shot. I shoot isoceles. Bad penmanship. I'm trying to improve through the use of stencils (sad, I know) though. Good with uniforms. Former boyscout, in the Police Explorers thing. Don't like talking, and kinda reclusive. It's not like I don't have friends though. It's like. I don't like making people my friend, but I have no problem having other people make me their friend. Don't like being oily. I hate having lotion or oil on me. It's such a nasty feeling. Mensan. If height and weight matter, I'm somewhere between 5 7 and 5 9. I know it's broad, but I've no idea. I weigh somewhere between 130 to 140. EDIT: I have bad eyes. Can't believe I forgot this, lol. I'm under 1000, but I'm over 800. Right now the PRK surgery recommendation thing is 800, I think. 4 years ago, eye surgery wouldn't be used on people with over 300, so there's hope. Besides, I'm correctable to 20/20, and besides a self diagnosed small (but medically sound) bladder, I'm good to go. Sooo...Is military my thing? Will the military help me become a doctor? I think that being in the military is quite an impressive thing, and looks good on a resume. And that GI bill will come in handy, too. Can't forget, a military ID gets you laid. Or so I've heard.
