Like you all need to hear anymore about my personal life, but I reckon this bit is fairly important. For anyone who doesn't know, I went and joined the Air Force and I'm now waiting to enter basic training. I think I brought it up last night in mooble, but just so everyone knows, I'm headed out March 8. It's a bit sooner than anyone expected, but I'm still excited nonetheless.

So what this means is starting (roughly) March 8 I'll be pretty much completely disconnected from technology for seven and a half weeks, and even when I'm out of basic, my spare time will be incredibly limited as I'll be training in whatever job I happen to choose. For anyone who's curious, I'm entering basic under Electronics Aptitude Area, meaning I'll choose a specific job in the electronics area about six weeks into basic, and considering my obnoxiously good ASVAB scores, it means I could pick any job on that list.

So there you have it. Your little baby bear is growing up. Gotta go out there and be an adult whether I like it or not. I can't spend my whole life jobless and living with my mom. Just figured I'd update you all since I have a bad track record of disappearing without warning.

Congrats Bear. I'm happy for you. Of the five services to pick from, this was probably your best choice. Nothing against the other branches, but the AF tends to attract an overall brighter group.

I hope you like it an it suits you well. My girlfriend's younger daughter was an above average student in high school a few years ago, but college just wasn't appealing to her. She joined the Air Force and ended up in some type of job in aircraft control. Not like at an airport, and I didn't really understand it, but after a tour in Iraq and Afghanistan, and taking online classes all along, she got accepted into the Air Force Academy.

She's a junior there now, has traveled all over the place. She is majoring in something to do with foreign relations and will likely get stationed in Europe, be able to retire before 40 and if she chooses, walk into a six-figure job in civilian life.... with a pension. Very bright future ahead of her.

Good luck and if you get the opportunity, give us your mailing address, if you want, and maybe some of us can drop you a line while you're in basic. Not sure anyone here knows how to use snail mail still, but I'll help them figure it out.... 😬 Take care.

Howdy all! Airman Bear here with some good news! I'm all done with basic (finally) and I'll be headed out to tech school early Monday morning. Now I won't divulge on where I'm going or what my job is (not in text anyway, they like to be careful about that information) so I'll keep that a little low, but I just wanted to let you all know that I'm all done with that crap and I'll be in a better position to be on my computer and stuff soon. Obviously when I'm at tech school, I'm not going to have nearly as much free time as I did a few months ago, but I should at least be back at all, which will be cool.

I reckon I can say how long I'll be there, which should be about four and a half months then I'll move on to my first duty station from there. I'll be in contact soon, I just figured since I'm at the library on base, I could shoot y'all a quick update. I still miss you all and I can't wait to play some video games again! (after studying of course)

I'll talk to you all in a bit!
<3 bear

Good job Bear. Good to hear from you and I look forward to maybe hearing you in Mumble sometime. GW is a lot different since the last time you saw it. Take care and write soon.
