To me, I pride myself in doing the best work and making my career.... my life. Long story short: I am force into a military job that I didn't sign up to do. I have no passion for it, and when I try to become passionate about it, I can't. I would love to study it 24/7, but I can't. I hate it so much... I rather be homeless, and would LOVE TO BE UNEMPLOYED. I been unemployed, so that's an okay lifestyle for me. Yet I can't be.

So to get through the time, I think I have to be a great "employee", make people happy, use a lot of people skills, "busy" work, look good and keep myself occupied...when in fact I am doing the bare minimum. Do the odd jobs people hate, clean, and overall when people think of me they think I am a great help to the job. Yet, I want to avoid the actual job itself as much as I can.

The people at my job expect me to work on getting certifications ((I don't want to do that...)). Yet, I want to leave my job there, and when I go home, or whenever I get free time... I focus on my life.

Has anyone done this before?

Honestly, it doesn't sound like I am avoiding my job, but I want to leave my job at the job. I don't plan on taking it home.

I also have 95% job security, and if they don't think I can handle the job, they'll make me do the dirty work.. I hope. I just don't want to tell this.

I have 1 YEAR of this.

I would seriously recommend you go see someone to discuss how your feeling. You are making yourself miserable. It's not the Army, it's not your job, it's you. YOU have 100% control over how you feel each and every day. Get some perspective. Seriously, go see the chaplain, mental health, someone.
