9 Days Until I See My Man Become A Marine!

Hello ladies. So the time is drawing near. I have my last final of the semester tomorrow, and I'm having trouble studying for it because I cant help but think about the fact that I see Eddie in 9 days! Boot camp has been difficult, and I know that this is only the beginning when you're in a relationship with a Marine... But DANG! I went through a lot of emotional obstacles during these 12 weeks, and I feel like I am definitely a stronger woman now because of it.

Anyways, the reason I come to you wonderful ladies, is because I'm looking for advice. What should I expect on Family Day and Graduation day? I will be in San Diego on the 19th-22nd. I am very excited!!!! But getting very anxious about what to expect. In his letters, he seems like the same person, more mature and driven, but still the same man I fell in love with. But will seeing him in person be different? My mind is racing as I get closer and closer to seeing him. I CANNOT WAIT!!!! Thanks in advance for any advice you may have. :)

lol sweety focus on your final get that out the way first - good luck with it hope you do really well in it!! I'm SO happy for you i cant believe its 9 days already and that's awesome you did really well. you know all those feelings you've been trying to put a lid on while nows the time they come out you going to go through so many emotions in one day that you wont know whether you coming or going and thats ok go with it get out now!! However be warned that this isnt going to end until he's standing in front of you for the very first time because only then EVERYTHING is going to make sense - hang in till you done with the exam then you have absolute permission to go a little insane right now you allowed to but not before you write that final lol good luck hope you do well!!

With how little I ended up studying, I actually ended up with an 80 on the final!!! Works for me :) Once I walked out of the exam, my mind immediately went straight to EXCITEMENT! I cannot believe how quickly the time has flown! I am so ready to see my love :) I hope you and you and your hubby are doing well. I saw your little rant on the frustration of a love-hate relationship. It was very cute. I cant wait to marry my man and feel those same things. hahaha. :) Thanks for your advice!

Do not worry!! I was so nervous that he would be so different, but in my opinion he was the same just a little stiff at first. It freaked me out at first, but he got out of "boot camp" mode in about two days. Family day is probably going to be the best day of your life honestly, when you get that first hug you will understand what I mean. Everything just comes together all in one hug. You both are stronger people who are different and remember that you are also different and you have to let him figure you out just like you will have to do for him. Most of the women I talk to fall even harder for their men and it makes your relationship so much better! I cannot explain to you the feelings you will have in the next few days, you have to experience them yourself, but I promise they are wonderful and you will never forget. Congrats to both of you!! Drive safe to see him =) God Bless!

Oh my goodness! I cannot wait to have that first hug from him (after 90 days)! I hope I'm able to maintain my emotions and my ugly cry doesn't come out. haha. Every time I imagine hugging him, I start to cry. haha. I guess I won't know until it happens.

Just two days ago I was able to see a video of him and his PLT online. I almost didn't recognize him because of how much weight he has lost!!! He lost 20 lbs!!!! He looks like a whole different person, but very handsome and mature. I am incredible proud... oh goodness, Im gonna start crying again. These emotions are killing me. lol

Thank you so much!!!! I will be flying, so pray for a safe flight please! :)

I will pray for a safe flight! And it is hard to recognize them at first. Your emotions will be high until like 3 days of seeing him haha just let lose! Don't be afraid to be you :)
