Still tired from MEPS

Well I'm in the AF now. DEP. Probably won't be able to go to BMT till Januarary. I want to go now but I suppose it ok cause I'm trying to get a second job to go towards getting my car paid off. Anyways I got the com ops, load master, (some assembling computers job), in-flight refuling, and space and missile com ops. My friend laughed at me when I told her I picked that last one. If I get it she said it was likely I'd get stuck up in Minot with her. Which wouldn't totaly suck cause she's my best friend and she'll be having a kid this coming year and I'd love to be there for her. So I guess I'll post later and let you guys know what job I get placed with. Caio!

I've more or less decided!

I talked to my friend and her husband(both in the AF) and they helped me figure out exactly what kind of job would work best for me. So here they are the top 3: 3COX1 -Computer Operations, 3MOX1 -information managment, 3C2X1 -Tech Control. First one they said is a good job, not too hard and pays well in the civilian world. Second in line they said had easy hours, easy job, and can pay well in the civilian world. Third is the hardest out of them all. I'd learn server maintence and a bunch of other things. But they said the school for it will be really hard if I don't know too much on computers. I know some about computers and want to learn more but not a whole lot. Don't know if I'd be able to keep up with the curve. Then as a job to throw into the five I have to pick I got 3POX1 , a personel job learning how the Air Force works, paper work jadda jadda. But I'm happy that I've finaly figured out what I want! : D yay! And thanks everyone for teaching me and helping out!

I Don't Know What I Want To Do!

I'm going in for my physical at MEPS next Wednesday/Thurs. Still don't know what I want to do as a job. A lot of people have suggested flying and linguist. Flying looks like it'd be an awesome job. Go out and see the world around me. I've always wanted to learn a second language(Japanese in particular). There's also computers. I could make a lot in the civilian world with computers. My mom (PebblePie) says "DON'T DO MAINTENANCE!". Maintenance isn't that bad is it? If your really into fixing things. I was thinking of server maintenance...do they have that? lol...
See I still have no idea!

Feel Free To Email Me Advice ~ Help Me Decide on Anything!

My recruiter called today and said that I got 80's in every subject on the ASVAB. I could have done better but I suppose it doesn't matter. She said I can choose any enlisting job I want. So now it's a matter of figuring out what I want to learn. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated ! Go ahead and give details if you can. Just email me! I'm thinking maybe something with computers to start with. Or anything space related. I also want to learn Russian or Japanese but I just might do that for cross training... if I do. Dunno, that's why I'm asking.
Thanks so much you guys, for helping me out!

ASVAB

So I was just taking a pretest of the ASVAB online and it got me thinking...maybe I should put off going to MEPS for the moment and study?!

First Visit To The Recruiter

I didn't really ask any questions at the office. I registered to vote, filled out the paper to take the ASVAB test (Request For Examination), tomorrow and took the pretest for it. I scored a 54 but that's just cause I accidentally clicked past the instructions to the vocab and didn't know what it was asking me to answer. And WOW it's been a long time since I've done math. I'm not good at math but I love it. I would like to get a person who can teach more of it to me. Oh and I told them all my health stuff. Did my recruiter need me to bring documents proving all of it? Hmm... She also said something about a school related program where they take 100$ a month out of your pay for your schooling? I need to ask about that again. She also told me that the Air Force has their own community colleges and that you can go to a local college and earn/keep the credits for the classes you take. Also that they pay for all the classes you take while enlisted even if the class is unrelated to your job. I know I would like to learn at least one other language (Japanese and Russian are my top two. She also said that they are in need of more Russian and Arabic speakers), I would like the learn about computers, medical field, and space related programs. When I heard about the space jobs I got all star-eyed. That'd be amazing to be a part of no matter how small the job. I was told that the Air Force works with NASA on projects. That got me excited. I read in the Airman magazine that you can learn to fly a jet even if it doesn't have anything to do with your job. I quote, "For some Airmen, flying in an aircraft has nothing to do with their job duties. But don't let that keep you from flying. Find out if your base has incentive programs to fly in military aircraft, or hop on a training or refueling flight.". That's about it. Any more advice, or if anyone knows some questions I should ask my recruiter let me know. Thank you everyone for your support and advice. I've really appreciated it!

First Post

I'm talking to an Air Force recruiter. Have not signed anything yet. I'm waiting for feedback from friends who are in the military.
