    Saying Goodbye

    My boyfriend left for BMT yesterday. Saying goodbye to him was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I took him to the airport which happened to be in Connecticut. The 3 hour drive back home alone was horrible. He's finished with BMT in September and will be coming home after...

    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.

    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...

    I still think about him constantly but I haven't cried in over 15 hours which is good because that's when he sent me the snapchat saying "i love you". I know a lot of people are thinking I'm over reacting but oh well... I miss him but I'm pushing through. Hopefully I can go all...

    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. :(
