    I'm at that point where people ask me about my

    future. Some assume that I'll be going into acting. Although I enjoy the art, I realize that going in that direction as a career is slightly unrealistic. Everyone else asks if I'm going into the military. One person was like "you'd be perfect as a navy seal."....Women can't be...

    An Epiphany

    Apparently that's the problem. I don't know what my future holds. I keep thinking the way it should be in different thoughts. That could be why my future hasn't progressed any further. So a few days ago I had a great thought on what I need to do. I have a life to get together...

    No, I don't know what the future will bring,

    but I know what I will bring in to the future. I am bringing the fight of my earlier experiences for the sake of others, and fight for the smile it can bring for future generations. I will do my part for the future.

    Starting ROTC in a year

    or so. Working toward publishing a book before graduation this year and both seem like long shots at this point. But on the bright side; a year until I can meet my best friend. That'll be splendid.

    I bought a crystal ball, I've stared deeply into it, I've spoken to it nicely, I've fondled it lovingly (well everyone knows how much balls enjoy being caressed). All to no avail, it still hasn't told me my future, all it does is make pretty pictures instead. Go figure!
