    I am beyond mad right now.

    A few weeks ago my boyfriend sent home the list of people who he wanted at his graduation to his mom. His sister had to tell me, she's in a different state. And on top of it all I just found out that the same list also had all the information about graduation and the password...

    As some of you already know if you've read any of my stories, I work as a singer in a bar on the weekends. Needless to say, I have my fair share of men and sometimes women that hit on me. It's no secret to the regulars at our bar and my coworkers that I'm in a relationship...

    She may not be in the military

    but she has fought one hell of a war to be where she is today. She's fought civil war, war with others, and even had to break a few allies along the way. She's the strongest person I've ever met and I'm so happy I get to call her my fiancée. I love you Baby Girl. <3
