I have a quick question for anyone out here who has ever been through the security clearance process. I am thinking about joining the military, and I am hoping to get into a military intelligence MOS, an MOS that requires a security clearance.
I have used illegal drugs three times in my life: marijuana on two occasions and cocaine on one occasion. I've never been arrested for any offense, my financial record is clean (no delinquent debts), and I've never been terminated from any position I've worked at.
I'm intending to disclose all of this information, as dumb as it may sound to a lot of people out there, I'm pretty sure that interviews with people around me would reveal the drug use if I tried to deny it. My questions are as follows:
1. Do I have a chance at a clearance?
2. Should I continue with my enlistment (I have not taken an ASVAB as of yet, so nothing has been set)?
3. Is there a way I can delay enlistment until my clearance investigation has been completed?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

This might seem odd, but how do I get my in-laws to take my husbands side?
He's always been the fuck up of the family. They love me because I'm quiet and smart. He helps them out whenever possible, but isnt easy in social situations so is sometimes awkward. They usually greet me first and out of the two of us theyll focus a conversation more on me. If he's short with me or anything they give him tons of shit, it's ridiculously out of proportion
> ex, he tells me to get him a soda instead of asking and his brother starts calling him King -name- and sorta yells that he needs to get his fucking own and get me a tea while he's at it
> ex. I tell him to grab me something they dont mention it, or say things like "chop chop" and make it seem okay in some way!
I dont know how to bring anything like this up (with on at a time or just shout at everyone at a party!) or even what I'd say. I dont want things to get awkward or for them to dislike me.

how come some girls seem to have enormous grasp on a guy? you've seen it happen.
one of my best friend was one of the coolest guys i know. always up for a party, everybody loved him, got plenty of attention from girls but never got in long term things.
and now there is some girl, she's fairly average. they've been together for 5 months, and he just isn't the same anymore. He never comes drink with us anymore which is really weird considering he was always inviting us, i think his gf tells him not to. she's not a straight up bitch but she's really quiet when she's around and the two of them are always the first to leave (this guy was usually the last to leave and propose to bang prostitutes before we went home).
furthermore he told me she doesn't give head, for whatever reason
