My current state of affairs

Well school starts soon and I couldn't be any happier. I will be getting paid to go to school and living life on easier (not easy) street. I deserve it because i served my country. I haven't felt this good since I came back from Iraq in 2007. I made a lot of mistakes with people and with myself. I have owned up to them and corrected them as much as I can. I feel like I am ready to date again yet it is hard to get into that whole scene. I'm not about to throw a one man pitty party so don't think that is what this is about. I feel I have a lot to offer someone, I feel I am able to share things with someone which I was unable to do for a while. I know what I will put up with and what I wont. I want to find someone around my own age, educated, and genuinly nice like me. Well we will see what happends.

I have started laying the foundation on to the career I am hopefully heading for. I have been accepted to an officer program for the military, and I drill with a unit who is in the area in which I want to pursue a career in. I am very excited to see what the future holds for me. I just need to remember to sit back and keep a postive mental attitude. It's different coming into the Army from the Marine Corps. I was always taught that the Army was pretty heinous and those who joined the Army weren't good enough to be in the Marine Corps. It's just different. It's different working out here in the world as well. This 40 hour work week stuff is bullshit. People are lazier and less willing to help you out. Anyway like I said I am looking forward to the future.

I tell myself this everyday. I am not a victim. I am a survivor. The war will not make me a casualty. I will be someone someday. The world doesn't owe me a damn thing. However, the world better ready for me.
