Propulsion means your jets, still maintenance but you're at least a spec, albeit a rather busy spec. If you're flightline, you'll be doing just about anything related to engines, gearboxes, and generators (Remove and replace, part swaps, Ops checks, etc.). If you're backshop, you'll be part of test cell testing out new and/or refurbished engines (That's where I'd want to be personally). Strenuousness of the work will ultimately depend on your airframe and duty station.

As for tech school, it's actually pretty easy. When I went through, we actually had Phase 1, 2, and 3; ITP/ATP are just simplified versions of it. When you're on ITP, best I can suggest is having a computer, tv, or a book to keep you occupied while trying to fit in as many room inspections and open ranks as possible to get placed in ATP. And remember, MTL's are not MTI's. They're essentially just military babysitters so don't feel too intimidated by them. And especially don't be intimidated by ropes, they're just brand new Airmen on a power-trip that will quickly get knocked back down to size at their first duty section.

Sheppard's actually a relatively nice base, but the surrounding area is a total waste. When I was there about 4 years ago, I spent most of my time outside of class either at the community center-thing (Hard Rock, I think it was called) playing my buddy's Xbox on their giant monitors, or at the less-than-stellar-but-perfectly-functional paintball fields. Other than that, my buddies and I would just go on long walks with no discernible destination ("Adventures", we called them). It past the time and kept me far away from my roommate who never showered (that's a story for another time). All in all, tech school was a very easy and relaxing time looking back on it; I'd try to enjoy all the good things about it before having to really face responsibility at your first duty section.

I remember this rant being at the top of the page when I made my first venture into OT.

I remember writing out a huge rebuttal only to delete it all because I thought I was "too new" to face off against the OT big-wigs.


If only those days were back; I'd be forcing TL;DR's out the ass!

This one's a bit more relevant because the guy's name is Kevin.

I've sort of had a falling out with metal over the years. I used to listen to it all the time back in high school but have mellowed out much more since.
I now primarily listen to indie groups (Metric, The Faint, Brad Sucks) and classic rock (Jefferson Airplane, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, CCR) as they seem a bit more real to me.

Or perhaps I'm just getting old.
