When I'm driving in my car...

How many people finally sit back and think once they are in their car, driving to work or the mall? When I was driving home from work tonight blasting Ke$ha of course and stuck behind construction, I got to finally sit back and soak in how beautiful western PA is. I always complain that its too cold or rainy and its never just nice outside, but its home and what could be better then that? It is one of the only places that has a defined four seasons. Although we do tend to get some winter in summer and vica versa, we actually get to see the changing of the leaves, the snow, the April showers bringing May flowers, and then finally a comfortable 85 degree fourth of July. I am so blessed to live in such a wonderful place. Of course, I would much rather be living at the beach where I can walk the beach any time I want, but thats another story. As I was jamming out to KeSha, it came to me that no matter where you are in the country everyone seems to think their city is better. Well of course Pittsburgh is the best, duh. But honestly, what other city can wonderfully host 4 seasons and have an emergency shut down of the city for about two weeks because of too much snow!!

Who would have thought, I blog?

hey ya'll, so how do you ever start in these things? I am a typical 19 year old, except for the fact that the love of my life on a typical day is 600 miles away of me. My boyfriend is a marine, stationed at Camp Lejeune. While most other military relationships are still different compared to the "typical" relationship, being that we have to put up with the months and months of deployment, for the last 2 1/2 years, I have been living a long distance relationship normally, and on deployments and even longer distance. During down time, we see each other about every other month. During work ups, it is more then that. This month is a blessing, being that I just got back from NC, and he is coming back to the burgh' for two weeks after his eye surgery. So what I am trying to say is there has to be other people out there, just like me, right? Not every relationship in the military has to consist of having a kid or getting married right off the bat, or am I out of place? Am I being stereotypical? I feel so out of place every time I come down to visit and attend a cookout, or go out with a few other couples. It is a complete different lifestyle, and I love it. I love being such a hardworking, independent woman, and this lifestyle has given me that. I just want the next 18 months to fly by! I am so over this lifestyle, unless I can live there and be apart of it, but then what about school? I could never give up on school, or grad school. I know he would never want me to give up on my dreams, its not selfish is it? I love him and he loves me. We are more then perfect for each other. Why do the best things in life have to be so easy and hard all at the same time. 2 more years of undergrad, 18 more months as a marine. We just need faith.

Distance between two hearts is not an obstacle, rather a beautiful reminder of just how strong true love can be. - Unknown
