the work section thing was more of a surprise, because i didn't realize how much it was bothering me. and the thing is, that i was transferred for a disciplinary reason. i committed, what i have been calling an ethical violation against two other Marines. As a side note, i really don't care that i am in trouble over it because i did write and say what said and wrote(i'm like that, i'll take responsibility for what i do *ahem*). but when my MSGT told me how disappointed he was and all that, and told me that i was being transferred, i all of a sudden got happy.
it was weird. i went from being sad at disappointing him to extraordinarily happy at leaving in the matter of a few seconds.
then i reported into my new unit and all of sudden, i felt like i was back in the Marine Corps. I didnt feel like a bastard, unwanted piece of shit that was just dropped on a unit that didnt want me. they actually didn't know that i was coming, but when they saw the orders, they just kinda accepted and welcomed me.
It was like the world all of a sudden righted itself and the fog of the twilight zone disappeared and i could breathe again. it was weird. i should have been disturbed when they asked me why my pft was so low, i said basically everything, and the previous new guy laughed and stated, "thats gonna change". but i'm not disturbed, not scared. eager. I'm home. they have a Sergeant, Corporals, even a Warrant Officer. (in my previous shop, for a while it was about 6 lance's and a MSGT, then a few months later a SSGT showed up, and yes that did suck. alot.)
everything is different. i didn't realize how hard the past 6 months have been. how much stress that place put on me. how much i put on myself. how depressed i've been.
everything looks different now. i went to brunch this morning, and i felt as if i could finally breathe.
everything just seems different now.
i can start breathing again.
yes i listened to alot of music writing this...
