Well, I got the civvy job because they cancelled my shot at going to Afghanistan. Now I’m kind of settling into it, and who knows when the next chance to go over might be…
There really isn’t a whole lot left in terms of stuff for a reservist to do, and I don’t need any more years in the infantry to become a financial analyst, I’m already 23 and not getting any younger, it feels like I’m just running out of time and if I don’t go over this year then I really don’t want to go in 3 years.
My parents are virtually screaming at me to do it, I never listen to them of course, but they might be right this time.
Hopefully, the Calgary real estate market will go for a nosedive soon, then the civvy job won’t be quite as attractive, and then I’ll go back to being a mo bum.
