The Places In Between

When I came home, I wanted to start this tumblr up again. I have tried sitting down and writing about what has been going on in my life countless times. It usually ends with me getting to frustrated and my word choice and just turning everything off and taking a nap, only to wake a few minutes later and try again.

I came home about two months ago, I was in the Marines for just shy of a year. I got into a training accident in October 2011 and injured my feet, back, hip and shoulder. I spent the rest of my time in the Marines in a medical rehab unit. Those who were there with me can attest to the daily hell it was. I wont go much into that, I am kind of tired of telling that story.

Now, here I am. I am having trouble deciding where I should go next. I never really thought about it, I was pretty focused on joining the Marines. I guess I was a little too focused on one thing. I guess that is a fault of mine, I tend to get a little too focused on one thing and fail to see whats going on around it. 

I have taken time time to look around me and the opportunities in front of me are pretty stellar, I still have my benefits and can basically go to school wherever. But, it all seems boring and I am having trouble finding the right path to go down. I cant decide between settling my life here at home or just picking up everything and pointing to a place on the map and going there. I am both excited and terrified of whats going on.

The title of this blog seems particularly fitting to where I am at in life right now. The places in between. It’s the title of this book I read a couple years ago. The book was about this man who walked across afghanistan, his story is incredible. Go read it. That is not what I am getting at though. I found the imagery of those words pretty interesting. It’s the places in between that make everything interesting. It’s the journey that I love. The beginning and the end are kind of inconsequential, at least for me it is. It’s all about how I got to where I was going.

Sorry for the disconnectedness of this post, I am a bit rusty and a little to frustrated to go back and fix everything. I assume it will improve with time

Defeater - White Oak Doors

now get down on your knees
on the tracks where you shamed me
but this time, the dodge ain’t going to end so pretty
either a bullet or that train
steaming just ahead
is going to end your days
you coward little kid
