Not entirely sure where I go from here. My enlistment in the United States Marine Corps is nearly done, only a little over a month left. In a year or so I go to college, I don't want to wait that long, but I have to get surgery on my spine, and between time in the hospital and time in rehabilitation, going to school this semester is not going to happen. On the bright side of things, I'll be getting paid disability the entire time, and I will (when I go to college) have all my school paid for, so I won't be in debt. Also, I will have plenty of time to write over the next year, which is good. Not entirely sure what I'm going to major in, I've never bought into that "follow your heart" crap, so I definitely will not major in English or history, as they are not marketable skills, unless you want to be a teacher (underpaid and over appreciated), which does not appeal to me. I do still want to write novels, but since I want to write science fiction, I think it would be better to study engineering, so that I can have a good job and be more knowledgeable in the field of science. During my paid year off I think I'm going to try visiting a foreign country that is not a war zone, as I'm sick of being shot at.
