does this sound like a good life plan?
I don't want to live a regular life. That is. Go to college to study something you hate, work a boring job just for the money, retire. I was thinking of becoming active duty Marine right after high school. I'm currently a junior. After my service time is up I was thinking of becoming a Cop in my city of Philadelphia. Do you think this would work? or Do you think I'd forever be living in a bad apartment in a crappy neighborhood.
