Beginning Number Two - Tech School
He made it to Sheppard safely, woo. He texted me last night while he packed for 2.5 hours, and today through while he made his way by bus up there. Allll day we talked! It's such a dramatic change from two months of nothing, but he's the same old Seth. Well.. through texts haha. It's nice to have him there, knowing I can text him and he'll be able to read it and actually reply. (So girls going through or just starting BMT, look forward to the weekend they graduate, I hope you get the same thing I did)
He said he found out a lot more about his job as an Aeromedical Evacuation Technician. His class has only 40 people and his roommate said only 5 people passed when he did it last time (he had failed out). Apparently the rules have changed a bit and if you fail out of a job you get kicked out of the Air Force. Does anyone know if that's true? He's really nervous about it. I know he'll do great, he just has to remember to focus (which is good for me, because that means I can encourage him to stay on base and study THE WHOLE TIMEEE MUAHAHAHA) This job is important to him and he had picked out what he wanted to do before he even went to the recruiter, he studied and got the scores for the job, all he had to do was graduate BMT. Now he has to keep his head on straight, and try his hardest! He's so cute when he's nervous.
Oh, he also had to point out that he had "the most amazing shower ever" because at BMT the showers are short and he didn't feel clean after. Hm lol.
Anyways, I'm kind of being cautious about how long this dream will last. I'm sure it's only for today, and tomorrow I'm sure he gets into routine and the time we get to talk is cut into like an eighth. To be honest, I'm okay with that and I'm prepared. We will get to talk and I know these next 6 months will go by fast. I'm confident in our relationship and our friendship and that our love is the real thing. It's a nice feeling. :]
Before he left for BMT he gave me this quote:
"Immature love says 'I love you because I need you,' mature love says 'I need you because I love you'. "
We always thought that over the last 3 or 4 years our love had matured, but going through this process makes it true. When they get out of BMT (or anytime in this process) their love either matures or it doesn't. I got lucky.
Have a good night ladies!
