Why things are worth blogging

I don't think that I am an exceptional blogger or writer, but I do feel as though I have a lot to talk about. And why else blog other then to let my feelings out, if people do or do not listen, it does not really matter. I am not sure if I am going to be blogging as much as I like or not either.
But anyways, this blog is about my life being a Sailors Girlfriend. Sadly along with the happy times there is rough times, my boyfriend just graduated boot camp last Friday and I am ecstatic about being able to text him. But sadly calls are rare still and I have spent most of the last three days pitying myself. Which is unlike me, but my relationship as a Navy girlfriend makes things extra difficult on me, the military pushes people into marrying young, granting those who are married separation and housing pay, along with being more likely to get stationed where you'd like. I have always been a careful person, not impulsive in any way, defiantly not on getting married young, but even I am wanting marriage. It feels like it will be a security blanket, like a promise to me that I am not waiting for no reason, that there will be a less chance I will be away from the person that I love so much.
Me and Pryce have been together for over two years, we were seventeen when we started dating and were best friends for a long while before that. He is currently in "a school" and will be there for a year, all the way on the other side of the country from me. Plane tickets cost 400 dollars round trip months in advance, I have considered moving there, but honestly that would be a very lonely idea since he does not have much time off away from class. That and costs, jobs, and the other obvious reason on moving on an impulse. But hey, I can day dream cant I?
I will have a better, navy inspired layout for my blog later. I have some cool ideas :] So we shall see how that goes.


  1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. It is nice to see some Navy ladies on blogger! I know what you mean by the military pushing people to marry young. My husband and I almost got married before he deployed and we only knew each other for 5 months! But we decided not to rush into anything (even though we could have cause look at us know! haha) but it is good to wait. I see too many people getting divorced right now that are my age (20).

    It am excited to read more of your blogs!

  2. Thank you for following my blog! I am your newest follower now! Yay for another addition to the military girlfriends/wives family. We are a strong group around here and you will fit in perfectly! Be sure to check out the blogs I follow…a lot of them are military related written by some inspirational ladies (Like DELAINEY ^^^)! These ladies get me through the day sometimes…especially now…during our first deployment :(.

    I get what you mean about rushing marriage in the military. I am 25 and could totally be married if I wanted without age really being the factor, but I am scared to push marriage just because of the benefits in the military. I have been married before and it clearly failed (I was only 21). I want this time to be the last time so I want it to be for the right reasons. Just remember, you can do whatever you want. Just because other military couples seem to get married young doesn't mean you have to. :)

    Looking forward to getting to know you through your blog!!
