im currently studying on a military college (extreme military life and drills with education) to graduate as lieutenant not on the army tho but interior security sectors, but the military life is required to become a strict officer as u will have many soldiers under your leadership, this is my second year now and it is very tough, especially with saudi arabia extreme heat on the summer which is now, it reaches 50C here. and yes we get out from the college on the weekends, but sometimes u get punished and be locked for 1w or 2w depending on the violation. The college is far away from my city like 1100km, and i cant see my family and friends for almost a whole year. im only doing this for money because the government pays A LOT to lieutenants here in Saudi Arabia. and i understand why they get that much, cuz its hard to become one and pass these 3 years, educationally, physically and mentally. oh btw u cant bring your phone, smoke or anything that u can enjoy doing it, but we have chromebooks for education purposes as New Heaven university teaches us here in English too.
