Should I join the army?

Should I join the army?
I'm 18, jobless, I left college because I am too indecisive about what I want to do with my life. I am a little overweight, but lift weights three times a week on average.

I'm kinda withdrawn sometimes, and shy. But I want to change those things about me and better myself somehow, and I thought the army would be a good way to do it.

I want something mentally challenging like Intelligence or the Engineers, but am completely unsure of what to do.

Any advice?

would you like to go through life thinking "WHAT IF".........get down the recruiting office........you'll only know if you give it a try...if you don't like it, you can leave, but at least you'll have had a look.

GOOD LUCK.

No ............... don't bother you indecisive bastard.

If you can't make a decision now, what are you going to be like after a couple of beers and don't know what you have to lose ?

Try the Navy !

Join the Army? Your lucky you have a option mate, 90 years ago there was no choice!

If you have to ask, first person I'd ask is yourself!

What what job choice, Reg, what are you qualified for?

*yawns*

If it is going through your head now as something you fancy doing, it'll still be in your head when you're 60. It's up to you whether you can then look back at having served and seen it for yourself or whether you look back with regret and think 'if only....'. If you only go on to serve for 3 years, you'll still be plenty young enough to do something else afterwards. Do it - you know you want to.

Hmm, yeah. I agree that there isn't much to lose, you know, apart from my life. lolz.

JK, I don't want to look back and regret not doing it, so tomorrow I'm going down the career office.

Thanks everyone :D

You're going to lose it eventually anyway. Living it is the fun part. Wasting away doing something you hate is not what you should be doing when you suspect another route you never took would have been a better bet. I had 12 years in one of the best jobs the army the army had (IMHO) with the best mates you will ever find anywhere. No regrets at all.
Or you could flip bburgers or work in a call center if you'd like.

Go for it. The army changes lives and it changes them for the better. Even if you come out in three years you'll have skills, memories and self-discipline.

Get yourself down to the AFCO and talk to the recruiting SNCO.
