"You don’t look like you’re in the military."
I must hear this response 9 times out of 10 when a person learns I’m in the National Guard. And it makes me really fucking happy.
When we’re introduced to a person who is fulfilling a given role at a given moment, it’s easy to assign that role to the individual as an identity. In actuality, you’re only seeing a facet of a complex, wonderfully multidimensional being.
Let’s all agree to remember that every single person is probably ten other people. Fighting ten other battles.
And also…wear as many goddamn hats as you please. Just make certain you do your best to wear them all really well.
I like her mindset. Wear the uniform, do the best job you can do, but don’t lose yourself in the process. Diversity is a key element in building a strong society.

Hey guys! I know it’s been awhile but I just got home (2 wks ago tbh just been lazy lmao) from basic training and AIT. It was definitely an experience, one that majority of people won’t really understand unless they’ve been through it. It definitely has changed my perspective on many things and made me see the change in myself which I’m very proud of. There’s still moment when I don’t believe I actually got through it but then I put on the uniform and it tells a different story. One of a nervous girl who left in January who has grown into a different person. Enough of my rants lol it feels good to be back home :) I said hooah
