Well, im currently in my second semester at Long Beach City College, graduated High School Class of 2008. HOOAH. My military career was over from the beginning. haha I got rejected 2 years ago on Christmas Eve, so i consider it an early christmas gift. hahaha I got rejected from the Regular Army, but i also tried the Army Reserve, California National Guard and California State Guard. ALL rejected me.
Funny story (kind of) about the State Guard is that when i talked to the Sgt. he had told me that they just put in place a new rule that no Diabetics could enlist after one of their diabetics had died during Operation Fall Blaze. Operation Fall Blaze consisted of the State Guard helping to put out the freak forest fires that occured in the mountains about a 1-2 years ago. Basically the soldier forgot to take his inslin and something happened where he perished on the frontline and wasnt accounted for when they had to report back to base. So, the Sgt. basicaly told me I had just barely missed my chance. Blargh.
I had also made a pact with a childhood friend that we'd both go into the Army as Airborne Infantry after being inspired by watching Band Of Brothers. Since we were little we had both wanted to get into the military. When i was rejected, i tokd him to continue on with his dream and enlist. He enlisted in the Marines and has 2 weeks left until his graduation. We correspond with each other, and unfortunately due to having class the day of, i wont be able to go to his graduation at 29 Palms in San Diego.
So now im at LBCC majoring in Psychology with a minor in Human Development. Im studying Psychology so that i can be a Psychiatrist/Psychologist and work with children who just found out they have some kid of health ailment (Diabetes, Cancer, etc.) so that they can just let their feelings out. The minor for Human Development is for Early Child Development since im going to be working with little kids. I plan on transfering to Califronia State University, Long Beach (CSULB) to continue my higher education there.
