Monday, April 24


I was sitting in Economics class before the bell and overheard two students talking behind me. A boy was chatting with the girl behind him about why he would be out on Wednesday. He said he was joining the Marines, and would be out for a physical test. He said he knew if he went to college he'd "drink every day and fuck up," so he chose the corps instead. I noticed that his head was shaved, unlike the last time I saw him, and his demeanor considerably less carefree. He hoped the Marines would bring structure to his life.
