    This year has been one of growing up for me. Dealing with relationships, responsibilities and working on my weaknesses. In my pursuit to become more mature (and to get the hell outta my parents house) I’ve enlisted in the United States Air Force. In a few days, I'll be heading off to San Antonio, Texas to start of my life as an American Airman. I've been in the pipeline for quite a while and now my time to go is almost here.

    Although I haven't been all that active in the forums, I'm usually on IRC. Most of the people I got to know here don't frequent these forums anymore. It's full of a lot of new people who I really don't know and haven't spent the time to get acquainted with. I'm not leaving these forums though (which reminds me, when I first went here to post this I saw like four goodbye topics. I felt it best to wait a few days [​IMG] ) There are still some things that keep my interest around here and still projects I want to complete, so I won't be gone forever.

    I've met some of the coolest people on these forums. If I wrote a list of them then it's be so long I'm bound to leave someone out. I hope to one day get to meet some of you guys (and gals [​IMG] ) in person. Which reminds me, I finally got to meet up with one of’em! mthrnite hopped on the road a few weeks back and we hung out at the fair. Lots of eating and talking ensued. [​IMG]

    As a community we’ve gamed, bullshitted, argued and joked around together. Y’all were there for the good, the bad, and the depressing. My life would’ve sucked had I not met this awesome community. This website has introduced me to some of the best people I’ve ever met, and I’ll try my damnedest to stay in contact.

    I'd be all "I went through AF training here's some tips", but now that I think about it part of maturity is being able to adapt, so good luck. >X3

    you WILL do make so much more money then me and you ARE required to do less time then me, sounds like a go, just remember that sometimes it's hard enough to stop even willpower

    Advice number 1 - Save money inside a bond, don't spend it all.
    Advice number 2 - RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!!! - This is what Air Force P.E. all about, run!
    Advice number 3 - Security clearance is vital to your life, betrayal or espionage = Death.

    Good luck young birdman.

    Wow I actually kind of want to join the Air Force when I'm older but I don't know if I could do it.
    Atleast your not really leaving just being less active.
    Enjoy life my friend.
