Hi this is first post on here - put it in this forum because I'm in the signals! Basically I've been at my unit for going on 8 months and no matter what I try it just is not what I was expecting of the army. As soon as work is finished at half four everyone is in there room with the door shut no one talks to each other and at weekends everyone just goes home. I am too far away from home to do this every weekend and I didn't join the army to do that anyway. Also at work there is nothing ever happening all it involves is turning up sitting around for 7 hours and then going to sit in my room again. I'm well aware of the "it is what you make it" saying yet no matter how hard I try to make it enjoyable it doesn't seem to work! Is it just this unit or do I have this to expect of every unit I could go to?
