I'm a twenty something blogger living a complicated life that many people don’t understand. I am a girlfriend to a U.S. Marine; soon to be fiancé! We met on Facebook almost 3 years ago but after a couple of weeks talking, we lost touch. In August 2009, we started talking again and immediately started dating. Due to him being stationed in Japan, we finally met in December during his Christmas leave. We made it through his 15 months in Japan and he is now stationed at Camp Pendleton.
I’ve always seen myself as a fighter. There’s a red journal next to my bed full of thoughts and stories of mistakes, hurt feelings, crazy ex-boyfriends, engagements, and lyrics that have been my expression to get me through this crazy world. Writing is what I do. It’s my escape. I’m writing this blog to help me get things out that people don’t understand, to vent, to help others, and maybe to even try to get over things I haven’t faced.
I am… many things! To wrap myself up in a paragraph would be impossible, but what you should know is that I love God and I like to write. I like the idea of capturing moments of time and saving them forever – possibly why photography is such a passion of mine. I scrapbook, write music, blog [duh!], and try to do devotionals every night. I enjoy meeting new people and fascinated by people’s stories. I’m always laughing and I bet that I might be the biggest dork you’ll ever know. I am a Marine’s girl which I think says a lot about myself. I am independent and strong, but ever since I realized how amazing it is with Mister in my life, I can’t even imagine life without.
Who Is Mister?
Mister is many things too! Every day I learn another piece of him and every time I do, the puzzle of him becomes more and more beautiful [at times I’m cheesy too!]. He loves God and does devotionals daily with me. He has a smile that could light up any room and the personality of that guy everyone wants to know. He cherishes his family and his friends. He plays guitar and has a side to him that makes my heart melt. He’s a Marine and is strong and proud. He loves me, protects me [even from thousands of miles away], and truly is my everything. MTYLTT babe! BTW... have I mentioned he looks uber delicious in his uniform? Oh yea, he does!
"Distance is not for the fearful... It's for the bold. For those who are willing to spend a lot of time apart in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough..."
I ended up changing my settings on my blog to make it more private. I'm not quite sure if this is something that I will change back in time. I just needed privacy. I was tearing myself up over if someone had found my blog. What would I say? Better question: what would they say? I hope that I keep up with this. I need to. I'm going back to the basics; back to the reason why I started this blog: to use it as my diary. I started to stray away from that concept. I started freaking out about followers and how to get more and what they might like. I wasn't writing nearly as much about what I wanted. Part of that had to do with the public setting. I want to be able to write and not be criticized for what I have to say. I have a lot to say... things that have been shown a little on here but no where as much as I would like. All because I know what would happen and I don't want that. Maybe one day I'll start another blog, one to keep me in contact with family and friends. Maybe not. Only the future truely knows...
