Soooo.... Nick got stationed at Misawa AB in Misawa, Japan. When I heard this, I was devastated. I was like great now I'm gonna be here going to grad school and he's gonna be thousands of miles away for 2 years. He is leaving at the end of March and I won’t graduate college until May. So I was just going to stay here in the states and finish up school (I’m going to school for Physical Therapy). BUT I made a different decision that I can’t wait to tell you girls about. School will ALWAYS be here. I can go back anytime, and even if I didn’t go back, it’s just a job. I can always find a job. However, I can’t always go to Japan. SO, we decided that when he comes home for Christmas, we’re gonna get married and I’m gonna go back with him!! I am so EXCITED that I can’t even stand it. Here I was thinking I was gonna have to be here for 2 years without him and just like THAT I’m going! Holy crap! JJI just love him! Is anyone else going with their husbands to Misawa? I’d love to know!

He leaves at the end of March, but we're not getting married until December/January, then I'll go! So he'll be there almost a year before I come over.

I had to make the same decision (except i'm in my second semester of my soph year, i wish i was in grad school already haha). David and I are getting married in a few months and then going to Yokota AFB together! School will always be there, Japan with the man you love is a once in a lifetime experience :) <br />

When do you guys leave?

Congrats girl ! I'm so happy for you (: This IS a huge opportunity and it's so great that you're taking advantage of it.

Thanks everyone! I knew you guys would be happy for me! Some ppl here (who don't understand the complexities of a military relationship) think I'm being hasty, but I think I'm making the best decision for me!

OMG Japan! How awesome!

Congrats!!!! I would do the SAME exact thing. Japan is such a great experience. If my boy gets to go...he BETTER take me! lol...but anywho...CONGRATS! you will love it. My friend lived on base over there for a year I believe with her mom && stepdad! She loved it soo much. She actually took classes over there && got a job as a substitute teacher. By the way, she was only 18 when she moved over there...with NO college degree..soo Im sure you would be able to get a job if you wanted to. smile =)

CONGRATULATIONS! this is a great story.. I am so excited for you.. =D im sure it is such a relief to go from havingto be away from him, to getting married.. its such a good thing to hear stories like this..

Awe!! Congratulations!! Your right school is always goign to be here.. but japan is a once ina lifetime thing! I am so happy for you!=)

Ahhhhh! That's a fantastic decision! I'm so excited for you. What an amazing adventure. :)
