    Sometimes I am shocked at how bad a judge of

    character I am. But am I a bad judge of character or are people just not really who they are until they're tested. Holding punches is not my cup of tea and pretending to be perfect is always an exercise in futility so I just SKIP that 'getting to know you' step. I want to meet...

    I'm young, I have so many options. My boyfriend proposed and I haven't said yes. With him, I'd lead the life of a Milso (Military Spouse). We'd move around. I'd lose and gain new friends every day. I'd have the faithful love of a honorable man. My ex contacted me recently. He's...

    Don't Always

    There's many things I understand as much as there's parts I don't always understand.  There's things worth the effort knowing or trying to understand and the other parts, sometimes, I think it is better not to or just letting it be.
