My military career ended up quite short, four days to be exact. The whole thing turned out to be the greatest motivatinal killer ever and simply felt like a waste of life. It would probably be possible to stay there if I didn’t have anything else to do and as I am now I’m always doing a bunch of stuff, especially when I’m bored. It would problably have gotten more interesting in the future but the boredom of not getting to do anything except smoke made it intolerable to even consider waiting for it.
There was one habit I found quite hilarious in Dragsvik considered rewards and punishments. As the only thing you basically were allowed to do except sitting on your ass and wait was smoking. The higher ups also rewarded our company with extra smoking breaks whenever we did something well enough. As a non smoker and someone who wouldn’t even consider smoking if I got paid for it I found it kinda unfitting and generally rude. You can smoka all you want but are not allowed to go for a run or hit the gym… It’s kinda setting a incredinly serious image for anyone who would actually tried and I would defenitely have kept trying if I was allowed to actually do something physical, the sole reason why I decided to try out the army in the place.
Oh well, going to do the required civilian service asap. Though I see it more as a punishment where you’re basically told not to do aything usefull for a year. I will hopefully work for my university and maybe get something fun to do, and I may always go for a run once the workday is over.
