fopylo Posted May 2, 2022 Share Posted May 2, 2022 I'm soon (in a little less than 4 months) turning 20. I'm then getting recruited into the military (at a month before 20), so basically starting my military journey at 20 years old. The military lasts a minimum of 2.8 years of service, which you can lengthen if you choose and then you can get into higher positions and higher payment. So the minimum age I finish the army is about 23 years old, and mind you, but that sounds quite late already. Most people get recruited at like 18-19 and finish at around 21 years old. After the military service then you start your real life (college, uni, living on your own). About the military, I have a somewhat desire to become an officer, just like my dad was, but than means to sign for another year in the military (finishing at 24). Since I'm in some unique program, they are more flexible with me, so if worst comes and I really want to end my service, they'll allow me to cut my service shorter. Thing about becoming officer is that currently on my profile I have a low match for it, but it can still change during my service. But in any case my leadership skills aren't great and below average so I might not be able to become one. In that case, it could make more sense to decide to cut the service shorter. So I am finishing my army service at like 23-24. This feels like I've already spent all my early twenties. Now that I'm out of the army, the question is what carrier should I pursue. Say I start at 24, which sounds already late, what should I study? Should I even go to uni? (Luckily, here in Israel it costs about 5,000 usd a year) What should be my job? I know I also want to be financially free, but when will I have the time for this, for building a new skill that I can sell online? It takes 3 years for a bachelor's degree, so minimum age for when I get my first degree is 27 years old. 27 years old. Do you understand what this means to me? Where is my life? Goddamn, starting life in my thirties? What if I require a second degree? And what if I want to start an online business for financial freedom? Before all that I also have a desire to learn Shaolin Kung Fu in China. I want to go to the Qufu school for like a year. I also want to travel the world. I want to also create music, maybe even a Youtuber. You know, I want to live enough life when I'm still young and physically capable. Man... but in the military I will barely have freedom for like 3-4 years (won't have freedom to travel). But for travel I need money, preferably passive income, or a remote business. But I will be in the military. And I'll need to somehow live off once I finish the military. And also, I want to have relationships with women and start testing this kind of ocean because marriage won't be far away (don't want to get married later than 35) Quote Mention Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
