As time moves irreversibly forward, I am slowly accepting my fate as a future member of the civilian world – a normal, average college student. While I have found that a career in the military is not a proper fit for either my personality or my ‘life goals’, I am still somewhat unaccustomed to any variety of ‘normal’ life – the notion of ‘free time’ is lost within my psyche, and I find myself frequently inquiring as to the lives of the friends I had made in my previous life.
While I am infinitely excited for this radical life alteration, I cannot fully repress the ideas of what may have come, if I had continued the previous path. Either way, I have no regrets.
Accept everything about yourself – I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end – no apologies, no regrets.
– Henry Kissinger
