    Looking For Friends I Could Talk To

    Hello, my name is Kandas and I'm pretty much new to the whole being an Army Girlfriend thing. Its been a crazy emotional rollercoaster for me. One minute I'm laughing, smiling, and happy. The next minute I'm crying, depressed, and in a bad mood. It scares me that maybe I'm not...

    Hey, my name is Azareel

    and I've been a Sailor's girlfriend for a year now. A friend and I decided to made a Facebook Group called Navy Sweethearts to help you all through this weird, but fun journey. Please feel free to join us.

    Today has been one of those hard days

    where all I want is a hug from my baby. I had a super loaded and stressful day at school, and I got in a car accident right after school. Now I'm home alone and things at home haven't been going well either. He always knew what to tell me, how to instantly make me feel better. I...

    So I got what will probably be my last letter

    from my guy, the good news is that he past his last PT test, the bad news is, he nearly cracked his sternum, he is sore, but he is alright, I guess, I just tend to over worry, so I hope that he is okay, and can still graduate in a week.

    Today was the last day

    that I will be able to hang out with my man until Christmas besides his graduation. I tried to stay strong but I ended up breaking down in front of him. He leaves from basic in 3 days but now I'm counting the days until graduation. Only 108, I hope they go by fast.
