School life was a bit odd more me. I started homeschooling up until the winter of what would have been third grade. It was then that I presented to my mother my desire to try my hand at public school. It was in third grade that I then met the bloke who would turn out to be my closest friend for the next 9 years, ending with him being a highschool dropout, doing nothing but smoking pot while I gladly signed the next 6 years of my life away to the military. From 3rd grade till probably the middle of 7th I went to public school until I finally got fed up on the bull sh*t of how teachers would favor some students over others. From 7th until 11th I was enrolled in a parent/teacher parternship program(sort of a public school layout for homeschoolers), my grades were low here as I just never got around to doing homework. From 11th to finally graduating after working on schoolwork all through the summer of what should have been the end of 12th grade.
After graduating my intention was to join the Marines but due to the local recruiter being to lazy to tell us how to fix a minor problem with my homeschooling diploma , tried feeding me a load of bull about how I couldn't join. Instead what happened was the Air Force saw what was going on and explained how simple it was to fix the problem. From there I ended up taking the ASVAB, going to MEPS and swearing into the Air Force.
A few months after being in the Delayed Entry Program I finally got a call from the AF recruiter saying that a job I listed had opened up(Aerial Gunner), so I took that. I didn't stick with looking forward to that job for long as, after taking the Physical Aptitude and Stamina Test for the third time I finally qualified for the Air Force Special Operations job TACP(Tactical Air Control Party) on March 23rd.
