    It's official, tomorrow morning my fiance

    leaves again to go back to base. It sucks so much because he's taking it just as hard as I am and I hate seeing him upset. I know he'll be back, but it still sucks.

    My boyfriend asked me to marry him a few days before he left for boot camp a week ago. I said yes of course but the actual marrying will be going down after I graduate and he finishes his 5 year enlistment.
