Needless to say, 2013 is looking quite promising. Bring it, new year!
Moving onto what’s been going on with me and my Officer candidacy. I’m feeling extremely unprepared with OCS prep coming up this weekend. I’m in a race against time and I feel I’ll never win. There's this little voice in the back of my mind that keeps telling me I could easily just run away from this. Stick to my cozy little life. Maybe go be a normal pilot for the airlines or something. But for some crazy reason, which I can’t explain no matter how many times I try- I want to go through this. I want to see if I have what it takes. I want to go through hell and back, just to know I can handle it, or maybe know that I cannot, and even if I couldn't I wouldn't be ashamed. The reason being, I tried. Would you be able to say the same? Not many Americans even think about going into the military, and even fewer consider the Marine Corps. So, do I have what it takes? How should I know. If you were in my situation doing what I was doing, would you be able to answer that question?
