I'm a freshman in college studying to be an elementary teacher. I am also the fiance' to the most wonderful man. He just left for boot camp 3-16-11 and it's been hard I miss him terribly. I can't wait to see his graduation in May. I love you John <3
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
In the NROTC program
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
To remember that their thinking of you just as much as you think of them. That them being gone doesn't chance what you have or how you feel.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Not long, a week today, but its killing me! ha No communication is what is killing me. I can do long distance with communication but I'm dying. We got his address today, so I'm really excited about sending him his letters. I've been writing one everyday since he's left.
I love kids too! I am working at my churches preschool his summer so that will be really good for me. Right now, school is really the only thing that is distracting me, and I don't like school so its not really a big help. I only have about 5 weeks of schooling left though. Being around my family and his family I think will really help this summer.
How long as your guy been gone? What does he want to do?
thanks for the add!! Hope all is well. feel free to ask questions of message me if your ever having a bad day. My boyfriend went through boot camp back in the fall so I have somewhat of a fresh take on what to expect if you ever have any questions.
Yeah I know. I'm already ready to go see him! It's gonna be amazing. But yeah he should have got your letters yesterday and as long as his division was good I'm sure you'll get a letter weds. :) and that's how I am. And I hate spending too much on clothes so that's an even bigger problem with shopping lol
I have like the cutest outfit in mind but I just gotta find it lol. How did you figure out the number of divisions?? I'm waiting for my phone call now. I talked to his mom and she said she understands I'm Probably gonna be with her alot this week just in case he calls so we can split the call that way and he doesn't have to call two different people. It's crazy waiting tho. I don't even know what in gojing to say to him! Lol I'm just gonna be so excited to hear him.
