My name is Timisha, but I go by Misha. I am still missing my boyfriend a whole lot but I have found ways to keep myself busy while he is gone (I joined the gym). His PIR is on 02112011 and it is so close that I can taste it. :-D This has been a learning experience and I feel like it is getting me ready for those times when I might not be able to talk to him for an extended period of time.
I am here to support my
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
I am stronger than I ever gave myself credit for.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

aww I feel terrible for u, that u might have to miss graduation, jobs& bosses sould totaly be willing to work with an employee for this! how dare they ! afterall it is your child definding the USA ! once again so sorry I hope by the grace of God U get there
Ok. I was trying to send a message to your inbox but I don't know if it was going thru cuz I'm on my phone. Well my SR called today because he needed me to fax something. Well, he said he's cool with your guy & some other stuff. I can fill u in if you want btw my # is 225.573.9844
Don't worry, you will get your letters! Believe me, i felt the exact same way not long ago. BC is really overwhelming (as you can imagine). He told me that he thought they would get phone calls for Christmas but then they didn't...he didn't say why. Someone in the division might have been acting up. I didn't get many of my questions answered cuz it was clear he had not received any of my letters when he was writing. My boyfriend said it wasn't too bad & they were all adjusting so i think letters will start coming more easily & eventually maybe even phone calls! I just hope our letters are getting to them although letter or no letter they know how much we love them :)
STAY POSITIVE, if all else fails just write me. we can talk through this thing cuz everyone needs support.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Well, i got 2 letters & his mom got 1. He seemed positive but i wanted to know more. I was worried because his letter had a different return address than the first one he sent. SO i had been sending my letters to 3145 Sailor Dr. when it's actually 3415 Sailor Dr. Do you think he will still get my letters?!
