Whats the best decision you ever made?

I joined the Air Force about a year back. Finally helped me get my life together. Best choice I ever made.

Thats awesome! What were you doing before you made that choice?

Cutting down trees around power lines in the great state of Maine. Now I work on the most advanced fighter jet in the world in Alaska, the last great frontier.

What area of research are you in?


Patelved1738

Not my formal area of study, but my university requires all first-year students to write a full research paper by the end of their first semester in college. In mine, I proved that private blood plasma donation companies in the US are intentionally/maliciously putting their clinics in poorer parts of the country to incentivize the very poor to sell their plasma in exchange for a (relatively) largish income source ($60-100 a week), in spite of the many health risks.

Damn. Well as long as it was the right decision for you. I hope it all worked out great for you in the end. At the time, I think the best decision for me was to admit to myself that I needed therapy. I spent months pretty much in mental agony, but going to therapy helped me realise a lot of things that are so obvious now: I quit my terrible job, went back to college, rediscovered hobbies I'd forgotten 10 years ago. I'm still working on making my hobby my job, but so much weight has been lifted in the last three years.

I worked hard in online school and finished both semesters of my senior year before Christmas. I lost so much sleep and was really stressed, but now I’m done with high school and just have to wait to graduate. I also unfollowed everyone from school on social media, (like people I know but I’m not friends with and it was awkward and I felt like I had to follow them to not seem rude) It helped my mental health a lot and now I don’t have to put up with all the drama and attention seeking, self deprecating, posts. Now I’m using this extra time to work on improving my mental, spiritual, and physical health
