    So tonight I tired going out with some of my

    friends to get my mind off missing my boyfriend but just seeing them with guys or with their boyfriends honestly was the worst. All I've been doing is thinking about how much I wished I could just simply talk to my boyfriend. I miss him so much and it's only been 4 days :(

    What Really Grinds My Gears

    Ladies, Just because your man is away doesnt mean that you exactly have to be super girl, Do not lie to him about your feelings. Don't supress things that bother you until he comes home. And dont be overly worried about stressing him out. BREATHE! It is ok to show some emotion...

    It has been like twenty days

    since I've got to hold him in my arms. I hope that he's doing okay, and from his letters, it seems like he is. I am so proud if him and everyone who goes through all of this for our country. God bless America.

    asked me to do while he's gone. I'm putting myself first and thinking about my future. I've been applying to colleges and filing out scholarships. I've been thinking about army reserve to help me pay for things. This is one of those times I really want to talk to him. :(

    Has anybody else realized how much we took

    for granted having our boyfriends here ? Being able to touch them , feel them , talk to them and even see them. I swear I will enjoy and take advantage of every minute with him when I see him next week.

    He called today and I literally felt like my

    heart was going to jump out of my chest. I have really missed his voice. I had all these fears that he would question our relationship while being apart, but he made them all disappear. Just 40 more days stand in the way of being in the arms of the love of my life.
