Life Changing

Well, my Cory left this morning and I didn't get to see him off. But at least this time there was a reason for it. I was up late last night studying for the ASVAB that I am taking at 2pm or so today. I have made a very big decision to join the Navy. I got a 35 on the practice test which is above average. They said if I can get above a 50 on the actual test I can be placed right away. They are looking at making me a coreman, medic, because I have been in the field for 3 years already. Which means I'll be on the front line with Marines, Air Force, Army, you name it. I made this decision after talking to Cory's Marine Corps recruiter. I would have got with the Marine Corps but I have a tattoo which disqualifies me from the Corps. Navy can waver the tattoo. I can start boot camp as soon as next month... only one friend, one brother, and Cory knows. I am hoping that everything works out. Today is going to be a long day, I can already tell. I am very nervous about everything because I am not sure how my family will react to it all. I am ready to embark on this new journey, but I'm not sure my family will accept me once everything is set in motion. My family is how you'd say very stuck up and set on what they already have, they don't like change. They were pissed off when my brother joined the Army and I'm pretty sure that they might disown me for joining the Navy, but it's my decision to make not theirs. When I originally to the ASVAB in high school it said I should go into military science or medical technology. I can do both through the Navy. I just hope I don't lose everyone once everything is said and done. everyone I've told supports me, hence the reason I told them. I am though worried about my mom and sister. They are the Main people in my life and they have no idea what is going on. I don't want to tell them til it is for sure. Is that a good or bad thing to do?
