Should I join the Army (seriously)?

Alright, so I'm 20, heard the recruiter spill whenever I was graduating HS, but I talked to another recruiter yesterday while I was at work. He wasn't saying anything new or anything, I just seemed to be listening a lot more. I think I'm just kind of bored with my life. I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything. I work full time, go to school full time, and have talked about getting married to my girlfriend here in a couple of years... but I just feel... Like there should be more.

The recruiter brought up a good point about how a lot Buisness students (my current major) are graduating, and then having nothing to do, can't get a job or anything. Besides, I go to the Univ. of TX @ Arlington, nothing fancy that will pull a lot of weight in an interview.

I don't really know what I want out of life other than to be happy, and he was taking the approach that the Army would make that easier. Just kind of saying that you're guaranteed what you want out of life.

I've never felt the urge to join before; I don't have OVERWHELMING patriotism for my country or anything of the sort, but I'm really uneducated of what joining up would entail. If anyone could give me their opinions, I would appreciate it. Thanks.
