College is a big step. When I think about the possibilities, I have several areas I am interested in. I am interested in studying business or becoming an athletic trainer.
Also, while attending college, I plan on being in ROTC. I've thought about becoming a Marine Corps officer. I've always felt like serving in the military was the only way to truly repay those who have come before me. Perhaps, I may be able to help protect the freedoms we take for granted. I would like to serve in the military for as long as I can.
My thoughts don't end there. I think about life after my career. When I retire, owning my own muscle car restoration business would be an amazing second career. My friend and I have already made plans about what cars we want to fix first.
I've always loved old muscle cars. My father and I take on projects at home. I'm in the middle of restoring a 1971 Ford Maverick. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, "Why a Maverick out of any old muscle car?" Well, I wanted something that isn't well-known and that nobody else has. I like to be different.
When I think about the upcoming chapters of my life, it is a lot like that movie trailer that replays itself over and over in your brain. Sometimes it's hard to stop thinking about it. My possibilities are endless. I can't help but wonder how this will all unfold as I near the end of my high school education.
What makes you sit down and think for hours on end? Are you filled with thoughts about your future, too?
