Ditto!!

Definitely. But I’d say I’ve found myself leaning more into my previous experience the further that I am away from my time. I suppose eventually I’ll be back

I definitely am softer, but that probably has more to do with two bad knees and burn pit asthma than anything else. Still sucks going from maxing my PT test to staying at a dad-bod gut in a few years.

If by soft you mean fatter, YUP! I've become more driven in my career since being out but I can't seem to find the want to for staying in shape. I've been out for 2 years and I'm just now feeling like I have my crap straight. I've been in a haze of "who am I" until now and it took a lot of mentors etc to help me get here.

Don't need to be a hard charger anymore friend. Give yourself some space to feel safe at home and relax. If you feel like there's an unforseen battle coming, talk to a professional, a friend or even reach out here. Or get a gym membership if you don't wanna get physically soft 😉

I’m not 21 anymore, but still super fit and strong at 50. I run trail races regularly (up to 50k) and lift 3-4 times per week. When I say I have a “dad bod” it’s not an insult 🤣

Anyone do graduate school full time while working full time? I've got about 4 semesters of GI Bill left and want to use it up but working plus school seems like an endurance test and a recipe for burnout, and if I took a break from work, I'd be taking a 50% pay cut if I was only going to school. Anyone have any opinions or feedback they want to share about this?

I don't have an SO or kids so I don't really have many obligations outside of work, if that makes any difference to your answers
