    I give up on the mail.

    I'm so freaking done, this is stupid. Even my mom said "he's probably not going to write..." as soon as I walked in from getting the mail with no letter. 4 weeks and nothing? Whatever I got the hint. You should've known better than to get your hopes up Hannah. Why does everyone...

    I'm feeling lost without him.

    I'm feeling doubtful of our relationship. I'm so angry at him. I don't even feel like I'm waiting for him to come home. I feel like he's slowly disappearing from my life and I hate it. but at the same time I'm letting myself feel this way. I love him with all my heart, he's my...

    for boot camp and the horrible feeling I have in my stomach wont go away. Does the horrible feeling go away? Does it get easier?

    I'm spending my last week with my sailor

    before leaving...it's all kinda bitter sweet but so far I'm doing better than I thought I would. Just scared of when we really have to say goodbye.

    I miss my baby so very much.

    I cannot wait for his graduation. Us being apart has made me realize how lucky I am to have him. When I get a letter it makes me realize how mush I really do love him. A letter seems to come just about the time I need them. I love you Jordan!

    I don't know how much longer I can stay in a

    long distance relationship like this. It's one thing if he were at a different college but this is much worse. We haven't even made it to his deployment but this is really driving us a part. We argue like never before and I feel like I can't tell him about anything I'm feeling...

    Well I am pretty lucky,

    I met my sailor when I was 13 years old. We were next door neighbors and had little love crushes on each other. Our families became awesome friends but I ended up moving back to the state I was originally from. Our fathers became best friends and stayed in touch with each other...

    I missed a call from him this morning.

    . I'm feeling completely destroyed now. he left me a voicemail and said he would try and call back. I really hope he does I just need a little confirmation of our relationship by talking to him. I hope he's okay, he sounded miserable.

    The Wonderful World Of The Emotional Rollercoaster

    Anyone who had a loved one in any branch of the military knows this ride all too well, and sadly for us, it isn't a ride we can get off easily. Just when you have one foot out of the rollercoaster car, the ride takes off again. I am (of course) no exception to this wonderfully...

    I am overwhelmed with gratitude

    for the sailor in my life. Being with a guy in the military was the last thing I thought I would ever do... In fact, I had told God many times that I refused to accept that kind of challenge. Funny how God has a sense of humor. Not only is my man in the navy, he also lives 24...

    I haven't talked to him in over a week. This is the first deployment I've ever had to go through with him. Before I met him, I knew nothing about the military & didn't really care. The last person to be in the military in my family was my grandpa, back in like the 50s. I have...
