    One reason among others that want to join the Navy is because my Dad was in the Navy and he loved it more then anything. He went in with no high school education, got a GED became an ET and learned advance math. I have pretty much been heading down the path of failed education. I made it to college and finished almost two years not with the best of grades. It took me two years to figure out how much I hate writing papers about Hamlet. So me not liking school and my degree being useless is a pretty big reason. I really don't know if thats a good reason to join.

    Another reason is I think the military is one of the most respectable jobs out there plus the experience gained from it. If I made it through boot camp wearing a Navy uniform would make me and my family very proud.

    The last reason and I suppose this is the worst reason is that I HATE THIS TOWN. I fucking hate it.... God damn college town full of fucking liberals. I hate the Gators. l4zy knows how much my life sucks because I don't like UF's damn football team. Friday-Sunday all I hear is TIM Teabow!!!

    I just feel the Navy would give me a push in the direction I want to go. A direction away from this town and an education not involving writing papers on Hamlet.

    FSU? What does that mean? And your reasons for joining the Navy or heading towards that resolution is a decorous choice if it suits your interests and what you might enjoy. My sister joined the Air Force a long time ago.

    Oh i see, i read through the beginning post rather quickly so may have missed it. And i don't live in the Florida area to have that randomly "pop up" in my head as a "what if".

    You will not get a college degree without going to college.

    I would shoot myself if I lived in Gainesville too. And no, those aren't bad reasons to join at all. Go for it man.
