Seeing Daniel Again!

Seeing Daniel again was amazing. He is back in town for 2 weeks, and I am so happy and excited that he's back. I had a good time in Missouri, although it was really cold! Below are some pictures from our time together there.

3 Days!

3 days!
3 days!
3 DAYS!!!

In 3 days, I finally get to see Daniel again! I am going on a roadtrip to Missouri to go see him again, and I am so very excited. It's been 3 months since I saw him last, and these past few months, we've only been able to communicate through letters and occasional phone calls. Being able to see his face and hold his hand and just be in his arms again is going to be such a blessing.

I. Am. So. Excited!

If you've ever been away from a loved one, you know the excitement when you finally get to be with them again, and I'm feeling that immense excitement as we speak. I could bounce off the walls!!



I'll see you soon, my love.

And now, exhale.

I can finally breathe!!!!
I have officially finished my first semester at UNF, and I'm so stoked about it. My last final, in ordinary differential equations, was this morning, and I'm so glad that the semester is over with. I wish I had an ultimate countdown for how many semesters I have left, but that all depends on pacing and what classes are offered when and whatnot.

Or in my case, I can blog again!

Random Picture Post

I have decided to start a new "series", I guess you can call it, of random pictures and the stories behind them. Kicking off the random picture posts is the below image: 




This is a picture of Daniel and I, taken when I graduated with my AA degree from Florida State College at Jacksonville. I was very tired in this picture; my high school grad bash was the night before my college graduation, so I had about a 5 hour window from the time I returned from grad bash to the time my graduation ceremony for the college started. I graduated with high honors, and after the ceremony, my parents were taking tons of pictures of me. I didn't notice this one until months after they had been taken, but someone was giving me bunny ears! (The mischievous face should have revealed all.) 

It's all water under the truss now...

As of today, I have survived my first engineering class!

I took my final in statics today, but won't find out my final grade for a while. For those of you that don't know, statics is pretty much the study of structures, of things that should not move.

Like this truss bridge. 
It's been a fun class, I really enjoy the subject material that was taught. Now, I have to survive the rest of my finals, (calculus III, ordinary differential equations, and chemistry), and I will have made it through my first semester at UNF. Woo!

Define Yourself (A mini-rant)

For those who know me, I am a very tolerable person. There aren't many things I dislike or many things that bug me, but there is one thing that really grinds my gears. This may be an "unpopular opinion", but I can't stand it when I see other people letting their significant other define them, particularly when your signigicant other is in the military. I see many young women who are seem to heavily define themselves based off of their boyfriends/fiances/husbands jobs, and it bothers me.

One thing I see are blogs who are solely dedicated to their man's job, and to me, it just doesn't seem right. Honestly, I would think it a little weird if Daniel had an entire blog dedicated to the fact that I'm an engineering student or something along those lines. There is much more to you than what your guy or gal does for a living, you are your own individual.

And yes, I also know that being in a relationship with someone in the military is hard, and some people seem to wear that as a badge of sorts, but many relationships are difficult. It also bothers me when people 'wear' the fact that their guy is in the military as another sort of badge. Like with those "Proud military girlfriend" t-shirts and similar merchandise, like I said previously, that's like having your boyfriend's job define you. Be proud of your loved one, but be proud of them no matter what they do. Would you still have that sense of pride if they were doing another profession, and were never in the military?

I guess this is the end of my rant. I hope nothing I said offended anybody, that was not nor ever will be my intention.
