Why don't you just suck it up and do your military service? I do not understand why so many people have such an aversion to it. It's no big deal at all.
Well, after a higher education I can teach in a college, earn money, doing army I don't earn anything, besides, do you know that in general, they do some abuse on the little soldiers, the ones with only high school degree? My uncle served in the army when he was 37, doctor degree and they put him in a room with AC working on a computer and his army service was more like working in an office. Many chinese parents try to get their kids to go study overseas to avoid the army and the abuse that goes inside, which only the locals know about.
