It's been a week and a day since he's been gone and I feel completely emotional. I'm mad, I'm sad, I'm irritated, I'm lonely the list goes on.. i miss my boyfriend so much. I keep telling myself "7 more weeks its just 7 more weeks." I'm trying hard to be patient and keeping myself busy but lately I'm just getting more exhausted than usual. I remember when me and him had to count down 8 weeks till we can see each other more often when I lived in San Diego. It did go by fast, but it was easier then because we would be able to talk everyday, text every second we could and skype'd until we would fall asleep. Now it feels harder than ever because I'm still waiting on his first letter let alone his form letter and I'm by myself so it just simply SUCKS. I miss my boyfriend so bad. I hate waking up knowing he isnt home. I just miss my love so much I can't wait for these 7 weeks to pass by faster. School please start already!!
Boot camp can be hard because you just don't know what is going on. Is he miserable, is he hating it? Is it better than he thought it would be? So many thoughts go thru our minds while waiting for that first letter. Generally that letter will reach you between the second and third week of boot camp and then it won't be long and you might be planning a trip to GL to see him graduate. They also have an opportunity to earn phone calls both individually and as a division for different reasons. A lot fo that comes down to which RDC he has but hang in there - it does get better once you actually know ..he is OKAY!!!
The best thing to do is keep busy. You need to concentrate on YOUR career. Do all the things you didn't have time to do before he left. Do things that will develop you as a person. He will be growing leaps and bounds as a man. You need to keep pace; otherwise, you will appear to be standing still. Not that I am suggesting that you'll break up or anything. Just that he is out there being exposed to a large groups of men and women and experiencing many things for the first time. You may be home but it doesn't mean you couldn't continue to grow as a person too. Good luck, besure to join all the groups, make some friends.
