An aspiring YouTube star explained why her joining the Army National Guard was a mistake, claiming the training was “too hard” and that she was too attractive to be a Citizen Soldier.
In her comically misspelled video, titled, “Why Joining The Army Was The Worst Mistake Of My Life | Why I Stopped Making Youtube Vidoes,” YouTuber “Nesha Love” said she initially enlisted so that she could have a leg-up on life.
“The reason why I joined the Army is because I wanted to like, start like, I wanted to have a good future,” she said, adding that she wanted to go to college.
Once she got to the Guard, however, life was not as she thought it would be.
“When it comes to the National Guard, you have to go to drill practices before you actually get shipped off,” she said, noting that she began drill in January but was not due for Basic Training until September.
“First drill, you guys, I cried,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh, this ain’t me.’ When it comes to me, I feel like I’m my own boss, I don’t like people telling me what to do.”
After three weekend drills, she had had enough, and tried to talk to her recruiter about dropping out. Much to her displeasure, her recruiter showed up at her house at 0800 and explained why backing out of her commitment was not a smart move.
Still unwilling to serve, she stopped going to drill and hid out at a friend’s house, as not to disappoint her father.
“I did not want to tell my dad yet that I didn’t want to be in the Army,” she said.
Despite the recruiter “blowing up” her phone, she repeatedly declined the calls, opting to spend time with her friends and eat pizza.
Needless to say, her dad found out after her recruiter called, asking why she was absent without authorization.
Going home, she faced her father, telling him “I don’t wanna do the Army no more.”
Not long after, she confronter her recruiter, telling him that she had watched several YouTube videos on how to get out of her commitment without being “AWOL” or getting an other-than-honorable discharge.
While it is unknown whether she found a loophole or her recruiter was simply tired of dealing with her, Nesha Love is currently in the process of getting out.
For now, the YouTuber with an unknown number of subscribers is focused on becoming a star on the social media platform.
“I’m back on the grind,” she said. “Nothing anybody will say will stop me from grinding, doing what I got to do.”
