    Just got the last phone call

    for a while from my boyfriend who just arrived at boot camp in Illinois. The 30 second one saying "I love you, I'm here". I don't know how I feel... I feel torn maybe.

    It's been about three weeks now

    and I still haven't gotten a letter, I'm wondering if this is normal because I'm starting to lose hope. I knew I wouldn't hear from him for awhile, but should it be taking this long? Am I just being paranoid?

    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.

    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.

    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 :(

    i'm kind of sad that he wasn't home to celebrate, but I made him a silly, cute card to hopefully bring some smiles and giggles on his face. he also graduates in 28 days. i'm so excited. I just wish that I could go. i'm so proud of him <3
