Free Man Walking

Today marks my first day as a civilian in 10 months. I guess it’s all in the mind, but the sun seems to be warmer, the air sweeter, and the world more colorful and beautiful. Not as nice as being in love, but good nonetheless.

And although I thought I might feel nostalgic about my experience and the friends I’ve made during NS, the “sad” truth was that I don’t. Sure, it’d be nice to hang out with them in future, but given the differences in age and life experiences, I imagine I’d do just fine.

Real world, here I come.
