    Reserves with a full time job.

    Ill talk to the recruiter Monday. The union seems to be pretty military friendly, so they might be able to work something out.

    Anyone else feel like the spotlights on them?

    Get a job while you wait for the forces. I started down my excellent career five years ago by getting a minimum wage job at a factory. I have not looked back. On another note. The substance use/abuse. Ask yourself, is this just a phase in my life, or am I doing this because I am unhappy with...
