I've been thinking about joining the Marines for the last three years, and now that I'm graduating from high school in three months I plan on going through with it. I want to join the Marines because of the opportunity to go around the world and the chance that I might find myself doing something I can take some pride in after being bored by high school and wishing I didn't have to deal with the idiotic rules I've been subject to.
