Thinking of Joining the Military
Some guys need adrenaline in their life. They're just not complete unless they've got something that they can focus their energy on. So, Ok. I didn't win my research grant. That's not a problem. I've met with someone who can retool it and help me resubmit it. It was under the wrong program in that submission. I won't stop the work in my research.
The problem is that the life I'm living isn't quite right. I can do more with my life. There are benefits to military service as well. And I'm fairly clear about the fact that once I'm in-country - the orders that are given are the orders I will take. Something tells me working with more on the line that just money - will help me out. Tour of duty, maybe 5 years.
I don't know. I'm considering it. What do you think I should do?
