    Guys if there is one thing I would say to NOT

    do...it's act like you know more about the Marines then any other girl on here...I understand that some of you who have had more experience know more about later on in the journey but the rules haven't changed...We all come up on questions and when we do we'll ask but don't...

    I love him more and more.

    I've been so stressed because of finals and work and he has stuck by me. I can't believe it's already December and I will be picking him up from the airport in 28 days! I miss him so much and these past couple days have been hell but it's worth it to see him.

    Just got off the phone with him.

    Kind of surprised he was still awake, but then remembered he has tomorrow off. It's nice to hear his voice before I fall asleep. We've hit this rocky patch lately but he reassured me everything will be ok and it's just something we have to get through. We are both stressed out...
