Wow good luck man you motivated me to go talk to the recruiter for the coast guard yesterday and im definately going to give it a whirl. I've made poor decisions in my short life but this one is going to be a good one I just know it.

To anyone thinking of it, I say go for it. At times it can be rough..... but looking back on it now, I'd trade thoses rough times in a heart beat for the problem I encounter now on a daily basis.

Well, got back from MEPS last night. MEPS for those who don't know, is physical (Which is a LOT more than say a physical for a regular job), and random screening/briefing. Yeah, this also invloves about 45 minutes of random exercise, running around a building, and for people who need to take the ARMs test like I did, add another 10 minutes onto exercise. All in all, not bad. My thighs kinda hurt, but that's about it. Swore in at the end of the 11 hour day, (Got there at 6AM, left at 5PM) and came home to bed (I got 1 hour of sleep the previous night). How fun it was..
