    Ugh idk what's wrong with me.

    Suddenly like a wave of emotions just came over me. I've been ok all day. Quiet, but ok. Today was my day off which I haven't had in over two weeks. And I guess since I haven't been occupied, I've had too much time to miss my boyfriend. I just really want to call him right now...

    How would you go about telling your parents you

    plan to follow your soldier wherever he goes? They keep asking me what our plan is. We have one, just not one I know how to tell them. They're going to freak.

    My boyfriend just sent me a letter asking me to

    send him a charger portable? I think he means a portable phone charger. I'm not sure though. If he needs it I don't want to wait for the whole time for him to get a letter then have me get his response back... Has anyone else's bf asked for a portable phone charger in basic?
