    filled out the fucking paperwork and will probably re-enlist tomorrow if all goes well ...

    i wanna go to the drill field but i cant till i earn my 3rd stripe for Sgt so i have to wait on that shit ...

    so instead i was thinking of asking for a duty station ... either Hawaii ... MCRD in San Diego (still in cali but closer to the city and with the recruits) or do something crazy and try to get one in Texas close to Houston cause i met a really great girl there during the meat ...

    to me its no big deal to go to Texas, its just another duty station to me so even if shit doesnt work out with said girl, i will still enjoy my tour there ... but i like Cali a lot ... fuck

    yeah i'm just venting ... oh and i'll be getting a 15k bonus but after taxes it might be more like 11k, :o

    dude, let me be the first to say, do NOT move to houston cause you met some OP.
    If you want to move to Texas, go cause i'm getting stationed there.
    I wouldn't leave Cali anyways

    I lived in Houston for several years. DON'T DO IT. 100% humidity, with 90+ degree temps, with clay for dirt meaning that every fucking time it rains it floods... Couple that with the fact that you are moving from CALIFORNIA, and you will want to kill yourself because of how stupid you were to cash in your big opportunity to get something worthwhile for your reenlistment on something as dumb as a cooter call in fucking HOUSTON. :ugh2:

    yeah, i'm pretty sure the detachments in texas are very limited as far as i know and most are far from Houston but i'm gonna ask anyway, i think i'd rather be in San Diego though, :o

    I couldn't do that shit. You can't let anyone know you're having a subpar day. Always gotta be on fire and shit. I have my "fuckit" days every now and then.

    I don't know which is worst.. Recruiting of Drill Instructor. Both keep you away from your family so much. If you're single, it's not an issue.

    most people look at all the negatives of the military ... when in fact it has some rather outweighing positives ... its all about perspective meng, :wiggle:

    ah fuck me, i got denied the re-enlistment cause of my article 121 2 years ago, :o

    but now i have to make a lat-move which might be even better than staying in this MOS, although I would have been Sgt by next year, :hsd:

    i cant stay in my MOS due to me stealing in Japan, :o

    so I was looking through the MARADMIN at the bonuses for Lat Moves and I hope i get one of these two

    Morale, Welfare, Recreation Specialist- 4113 LM Bonus $37,500
    Combat Correspondent - 4341 LM Bonus $41,500

    combat correspondent would be cool as shit and the MWR would be skate as hell ... either way i'd like it ... :coold:
