Anonymous asked: Still atc?

Nope.

Anonymous asked: Where are you now?

McGuire still.

Anonymous asked: What base were you at when you were in ATC?

Keesler AFB, Mississippi for tech school, then I did a bit of OJT at McGuire. 

Anonymous asked: How did you enlist? Were you an ROTC?

No I wasn’t ROTC. I just went to a recruiter and said sign me up.. haha

Anonymous asked: Hello. I'm a female who wants to join the AF. I'm obese, but am currently losing weight. So far I've lost about 25 punds, but I seem to be stuck. My ideal weight should be 175-180, I weight 245, and am 5'9". Got any and tips for losing weight?

Eat CLEAN. Drink water. Get SLEEP. And of course exercise. But the exercise will be useless if you don’t do all of these things together. I’m not an expert on weight loss at all, but if you stick to a clean diet, eat until you’re full, drink lots of water and exercise regularly you’ll see results. Good luck to you! Let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to know.

geezgab asked: i'm trying to train now to get my body ready before I make a recruiter appt (so I can be 18 and be at my qualified weight) what exercises would you recommend to be for for meps and basic?

Push-ups, sit-ups, and running! Lots of running. You won’t have to do any kind of physical exercise at MEPS, but it helps to be in shape when meeting your recruiter for the first time because they tend to be more adamant to help you get the best jobs and stuff. Every PT test though is push-ups/sit-ups in a minute, and a mile and a half run. It’s really not hard at all, just takes a bit of conditioning beforehand!

Anonymous asked: Ok I'm going to be honest. I want to join the AF because I've been super poor growing up & really want financial security. I'm in college, got debt for days & studying theatre. Perhaps this is an easy way out but, am I wrong thinking this will help?

You’ll definitely be financially secure. You’ll get health and insurance benefits like no other, and you’ll get a paycheck every 2 weeks no matter what. It’s definitely nice. My husband joined to pay off his student debts as well, but there’s a lot you’ll have to consider if you want to join. It’s not just a 9-5 job like anywhere else, and there’s lots of “extras” you’ll most likely have to be involved in that to some people, make it completely not worth it. It depends on how you look at it. You seem like the kind of person who would be grateful though, most Airman I know are spoiled brats anyway.

ashaz52 asked: Hey girl! Sooo, I'm thinking about enlisting in the USAF & I just wanted to know what's your job? How do you like it?

Welllll a little update really quick; I was previously Air Traffic Control but just got reclassed so I’ll be attending tech school again in October. I did not like ATC haha

Anonymous asked: Your so beautiful (:

Thank you so much! You’re so kind :)

Anonymous asked: Do you think it would be possible to have a YouTube channel when in the Air Force? I wouldn't say/do anything inappropriate or unprofessional, or talk about any sensitive information from the job. Its just a hobby & something I'd like to be able to do if I joined the Air Force. Obviously it would be after basic and tech school, given that my job does not take up all of my time. I just wasnt sure how days off/free time was spent, and if your superiors would care about you having a video blog?

I had one for a while, but I deleted my videos mostly because I just lost interest in making them. I don’t see it being a problem, I’ve seen lots of Air Force youtube channels and as long as you aren’t making videos about anything sensitive or secret then there’s really nothing wrong with it. If it were me though, I wouldn’t advertise it at my job. Just keep it online you know? You’ll have free time, trust me. 

Anonymous asked: you know how to lose 5 to 7 pounds? I need help, pleas (:

RUN! Eat clean. Drink water. Sleep well. 

Anonymous asked: I'm SUPER interested in being an Air Traffic Controller. I've just started my enlistment process. What all can I do to give me the best possibility at getting that career field?

Just put it as your number one on your list at MEPS, and make sure your recruiter know you really want it, that’s really all you can do on your end. Good luck!
