Omg I'm so sorry to hear that!!! It's good that it there for
Him as much as u can. I'm happy that you'll be able to move w him soon!!! It will be good for the both of you. You both are so strong and I hope the best for you guys!!! Thanks Emily, that means a lot. If you ever need anything, I'm here for u too. It's good catching up with you as well. :)
Hey! Yeah it's been a while! I've been good. I spent the holidays with my sailor. He surprised me when he got here. It was a great having him home for two weeks. He went back to Florida on the second, so I'm getting used to him being gone again. I miss him so much and it sucks not knowing when I'll see him again. What about you? How have you been? I hope you had a great Christmas and new year!
Dang that sucks about your laptop. Thank you so much! I was so surprised when he proposed. Aww that's exciting that u get to see him! I hope Alan can get approved soon to
Come for Christmas. He's in Florida waiting to start aircrew school.

You're right. I would rather wait to figure everything
Out for sure b4 settling down and starting school. I can only
Imagine how you feel about wasting time. That hecka sucks but good thing that we're still young and
Everything will fall in it's place. My bf's job is an aircrew man mechanic. He has to
Have so much training and SERE school!
Yeah, I figured bc would be the hardest part. What's Dans job in
The navy? I thought I was going to wait
For Alan to complete at least 4 years of his contract b4 we got married, but I can't see myself w anyone else, so I figured a huge wedding
Isn't a necessity. It's good that you're waiting and finishing school. I'm going to the jc here in the
Town I live in, but I want to go to beauty school when I have the money to pay for it. I really want to know where he will be
Stationed after a school that way I can be better prepared w my plans, so it's frustrating right now
Not really knowing what will happen. Btw..how long was your bf's a school? Does it depend on their jobs?
Thank you. :) you're the first person to tell me that. This experience is making me much stronger than
I ever imagined! Our sailors left us w no choice but to toughen up as well while they are gone lol. My bf is barely graduating bootcamp, but he'll be off to A school on the Friday after
Thanksgiving. Was it harder saying bye to your bf when he left to bc or A school? I really want to move w
My bf asap because we're so close and we're eachothers rock, so the
Sooner we can be together, the easier these 8 years will be...hopefully. What about
You?? Are you planning on getting married anytime soon and living on base? Btw you're the first girl that I
Have met in n4m's that's my age :) yay lol.
Oh so he has a 4 year contract? My bf signed for 8 years! Well I'm going to hid graduation in a week. We're going to be
Able to spend thanksgiving together. I'm so grateful for that. Plus we might get
Married when I go see him. He wrote my dad a letter asking him for his blessing, since he
Can't see him in person. :] when are you seeing your sailor??
:) I know that's why I like talking to other navy gfs, cuz we basically understand how we
Feel. Wow your sailor has been in for a while now! That's awesome. My love left in september, so we're sorta new
To all this.
