So, I've been thinking of joining the United States Marine Corps. Quite a bit, actually. I honestly think that becoming a Marine will benefit me in so many ways, such as people actually gaining respect for me, the fact that I'm actually doing something useful, fighting against terrorists, and I think that it would help me with me self-confidence. I'm 17, so I can enlist next year, but I don't know if it's something that I really want to commit myself to, since I don't want to disappoint my dad. I also want to go to college, but that can wait till after i guess? or vice-versa? I honestly don't care if I die in the line of duty, because then people might actually give me some respect, even after I'm dead. Better than none at all right? Plus it would just end the pain of life in general, but that's not what I'm trying to do here. I don't know, what do you guys think?
