In roughly two months, I’ll be retired from the United States Air Force. I actually learned about it earlier but I didn’t want to write about it until now. In fact, I would like to make it my new career.
But then I wonder, what makes now different from before. Will I actually stick to it this time? I’d like to think I’ve grown up enough to distinguish between a passion and a phase. To be honest, I’m still not so sure. All I can hope for is a continued desire to write about anything and everything up to this point. My only goal at the moment is write something, anything, whether it’s undeveloped plots, half-baked characters, quotes of the day that I like, stream of consciousness rambles, or just what happened that day.
In about 51 days (not that I’m counting), I’ll leave the insane but secure life that is the military and embark on something that is possibly even more insane, but less secure…civilian life.
Here’s to fucking up, and getting better at it every step of the way.
