Last month I wrote this post after finding an old journal I had kept as an 18 year old.
And, since so many people requested that I reveal more indiscretions of my youth, I've decided to feature a new entry every month for the next several months.
From what I've read so far, this journal is chock full of embarrassingly naive and humorous "coming of age" revelations... perfect material for all of you.
But this particular day, however, wasn't quite so funny - and instead features a scared young man-boy facing the reality of having to go to war for the first time. In fact, the only thing funny about this entry is how much hasn't changed in the last 28 years.
You be the judge.
It's weird, I remember being concerned about having to register for the draft, but I don't remember writing this - especially the part about draft dodging. But I guess when you only live a few hours from the Canadian border, this option makes perfect sense.

Coming up next month, more of what you really came here for:
|...The first thing is "old cupid" has struck me down. Her name is Christine and she's wonderful...|
I think you'll want to stop by for that one for sure.
