So I've been thinking about joining the marines, whether combat or the marine band is to be determined (do you have to march if you join the marine band? I suck at marching and would prefer not to). I think I am going to be a music performance major, but I just feel like I should join the marines for a year or two because it would be good for me. I've got some bad habits, would leaving for a while and starting fresh after 2 years help me break these habits? That's not why I would leave, I was just wondering. Also I wanted to say I think this forum is great. Most forums I go to (although they are usually full of younger people) are jerks and not helpful or polite at all, and I always get helpful feedback on here. I never get the vibe that someone is saying "If you were as good as me you wouldn't have this problem" or anything like that. Just something I noticed and thought I would put out there.
