Make Specialist by the time i get home
Decide on whether to stay in the national guard or go active duty. there are many pros to both...going active I'll make more money in the long run, but have to work every day, national guard i can go back to college and focus on finding a civilian type job, I've been really considering becoming a professional photographer, one that doesn't charge an arm and a leg for photos...if I stay in the guard, going to talk to my advisor at school on which classes to take to get into that field.
Focus on myself instead of attempting to get into a relationship for the sake of not being single. This is going to be the hardest one, but I just want to better my own self so that I am ready for a relationship whenever it happens.
Focus on making more friends and networking with other people, I've got alot of philly connections now since being attached to this unit...opportunities for work, parties, etc. are plentiful. just maintaining those friendships after I return home may be a little difficult considering philly is 2 hours from where I live.
Read more books...I want to read at least 5 books while I am here. right now I am reading 'The Tiger's Way' it's a book about survival stuff. pretty useful.
Last night was the best new year's eve I've had in a few years, maybe cause 2 girls I like wanted me to dance with them...good times, feels weird not being hungover.
Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.
