As of late I've been feeling rushed.
I feel like a barely have time to do EVERYTHING that I need to get done.
I get so aggravated because I make schedules and then the next thing I know, a million MANDATORY things pop up that I have to tend to first. Like briefings. Yeah. I'm well aware that briefings will now consume the rest of my life since I'm in the military, but some of them are so pointless! Like today, I had a briefing, and then afterwards my entire squadron had a briefing about said briefing, followed by another briefing about that briefing.
It was ridiculous! I mean, all the information was so repetitive--- we literally wasted about 2 hours doing that.
But all of that aside, I'm still just barely getting everything accomplished. I just got my first credit card (yikes) through the AF so that I can start building some type of credit. I won't be buying a car or a house anytime soon, so I'm just going to use the card for the AF "club" benefits, like free shuttle rides around the base and access to the Enlisted Club. It has a fixed interest rate since it's through the military, and I won't get penalized for not using it every month. So that's nice.
Also, I opened a savings account! Right now I have it set to put about $200 a month in out of my paycheck, but I'm sure once I start having to pay "real" bills that amount will change... But right now it keeps me from blowing all of my money on silly stuff.
Oh yeah, GUYS. My first duty station is in California! More specifically the Santa Barbara region! I'm so excited! I should be there by June!
