New Tricks!

Haha I finally learned something new at work today!!! All I knew how to do before was to just take orders at a register, and today I finally got trained in drivethrough, I did the 2nd lane, on the outside, and sure I only had like 5 customers but still....I DID IT!!! I feel like American Dora.

Day 5 My Favorite Quote(s)

Okay, it is several quotes, but hey, I am a Marine Gf and daughter, and I am darn proud of the Corps.

Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps will pay most of your share.

I have just returned from visiting the Marines at the front, and there is not a finer fighting organization in the world!
General of the Armies Douglas MacArthur; Korea, 21 September 1950

The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!
Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, 1945

Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.
Ronald Reagan, President of the United States; 1985

Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat.
RAdm. "Jay" R. Stark, USN; 10 November 1995

You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth- and the amusing thing about it is that they are.
Father Kevin Keaney
1st Marine Division Chaplain
Korean War

The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle.
Gen. John "Black Jack" Pershing, U.S. Army
Commander of American Forces in World War I

The American Marines have it [pride], and benefit from it. They are tough, cocky, sure of themselves and their buddies. They can fight and they know it.
General Mark Clark, U.S. Army

They (Women Marines) don't have a nickname, and they don't need one. They get their basic training in a Marine atmosphere, at a Marine Post. They inherit the traditions of the Marines. They are Marines.
LtGen Thomas Holcomb, USMC
Commandant of the Marine Corps, 1943 *Oorah I love you Mama!

Memorial Day

I won't say "Happy Memorial Day" because there is nothing happy about this day in America. It is a day honoring our fallen heroes, and it should not be celebrated like a holiday. It is in truth a day of mourning, a day when we should be going to national cemetaries and laying wreaths and flowers on the men and women who died for our freedom. Now, this is just my opinion, you don't have to agree, but if you do then thank you.

This Memorial Day, take a moment in between hotdogs and barbeques, and say a prayer for our Servicemen, alive and fallen, who have fought, and are STILL to this day fighting for our freedoms. Pray not only for them, but for their loved ones who don't get to be with their Soldiers, Marines, Coasties, Navymen, Airmen, etc. Just take a moment and say thank you, I know I will :)

My New Button!!

It's a Semper Fi Kinda Love
Grab it!!! It's my new button peoples!!!! Thanks to Karissa!! Who is AMAZING!!! She's GREAT!!! *So is her blog :)

I am a good person, I am a good person, I am...ah hell I give up.

I am not in a very good persony mood right now. We had a steady stream of customers from the time I walked in the door and it was still going on when I left. Why does it take 20 minutes to decide what you want to eat? I mean really???!!!

It doesn't help that today makes a week since me and Mister have talked. All I have to say is that he had BETTER be on a field op, and it better be a suprise one too. Otherwise we're gonna have some problems. Big time. Is that mean of me?

Day 4 My Favorite Book

Oh dang...hmm...well it's not a book, its kinda a series mmk? If ya'll haven't read them yet, you totally should, I got into these in middle school, the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. These books can make me laugh so hard I pee myself. They're like comedy mixed with some mystery, and they're just really really good, I promise they're grown up books though, I was readin adult stuff when I was in 6th grade :)

Day 3 My Favorite Television Program

Uhm...*eyes glaze over in thought* Well since there's new seasons of different shows all the time, during the school year I like Greys Anatomy and Private Practice, sidenote- DUDE the season finale of Greys had me about to pee my pants!! And during summer, only the BEST SHOW EVER Army Wives!!!! That show can always keep my interest, I'm pretty sure that my favorite character changes every episode...did ya'll watch it this past Sunday? Poor Roxy, she lost her baby! I started crying...I'm way too into this show, lol. I'm about to go to Charleston when they're filming and be the crazed fan who wants the autograph of the guy who plays Pamela's husband, he is seriously HOT...Roxy's man is too...See that's a good show: It's got good story lines, and some serious eye candy :)

6 Short Months

It's been 6 months since I decided that against all odds me and Mister were gonna try it again and this time we would make it. Six sometimes long and sometimes short months. Sure, I've only seen him 3 out of those 181 days. But In those days I've come to love him more than I love life itself, and that in itself is different to me than we were before, which in turn makes me happy and scared at the same time. I get scared when I think of him going overseas, I worry about him and not me and it's at these moments when I realize that I have grown up alot these months.

We've had our fights, and we've made up every time. He's not perfect, and neither am I, but if we've made it this far we can do anything :)

Day 2 My Favorite Movie

Oh this is a seriously my favorite movie changes according to my mood and to be honest sometimes I don't even have a favorite movie...but at the moment it's Jarhead...that movie makes me laugh, cry, and wanna shout Oorah til I lose my's just a darn good movie, period. Plus, look at how Bubble Boy grew up...Mmmm

My Very First Award!!!!

So Shayla over at Sunshine and Sprinkles gave me an award today! Thanks girlie!! :) Okay, now I tell 7 things about myself and then pass it on:

1) Today is mine and my Marine's 6 month anniversary

2) I'm actually really shy in person and blush alot

3) I would be completely content to be just a homebody housewife when I get married, I don't feel the need to have a large career if I have a family, it's not a must have for me.

4) I just drove in the rain for the very first time today!! Yay me!!

6) I used to be hardcore wanna join the Marines, but then got back with Matt and decided one in the family was enough, and didn't wanna seem like I was just doin it for him.

7) I care WAY too much about what other people think of in a bad way will change my behaviors because of it.

And my friends to send this to: ( I don't really know how to do the link thing with the name so it'll be url form :) )

Marine's Final Inspection

The Final Inspection

The Marine stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, you Devil Dog,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my Church, have you been true?"
The Marine squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was rough.
And sometimes I was violent,
Because the streets were tough.
But I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills just got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
And I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I've never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was a silence around the throne,
Where the saints have often trod,
As the Marine waited quietly
For the judgement of his God.
"Step forward now, Marine.
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully in Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

USMC GF Prayer for her Marine

"Dear Lord, before I close my eyes to sleep, I pray thee, Lord, his soul to keep. Keep him here, safe and sound. Keep his boots on American grounds. Allow him trips to go back home. Give us time for our love to grow. But when the day comes, and we're oceans a part, give him peace to calm his heart, give him sleep to ease his soul, and keep his eye on the goal. Show him miracles throughout each day, so he knows that I am continuing to pray. Surround him with angels and watch over his bed. Keep him safe so his blood isn't shed. Give him the strength to survive each day, knowing your grace is never far away. Provide him with memories of me by his side, so he never once doubts that I remain SEMPER FI. You see, Lord, this Marine is my friend, my love, my life... and I pray for the day that he calls me his wife. I know he must first serve your purpose, so I sit and patiently wait... But if something happened to him let him enter your gates, because you see.. God, he is a selfless and sacrificing man, he's already given so much for the people of this land. My lips he can not kiss, and my arms he can not embrace, he sleeps alone in his rack in a bare and confined place. He's missed his mom's cooking and the hugs from his baby cousin too, this is why he is part of "THE PROUD AND THE FEW." So please reserve his pass, tell Peter to let him in, he's already gone though hell, don't make him go again... But please don't take him from me yet, Iraq and heaven can wait, I need to grow old with him, I want to join him at the gates. Can't you see dear Lord? As true as it already seems, I can't live my life... Not without my Marine. AMEN!!!"

It's a Hard Job

Found this on

It's a Hard Job…

Being a Marines Girlfriend is a harder job then it looks.
Unlike other girls, we don't see our boyfriends every day… or every week for that matter.
Sometimes we go MONTHS with out seeing the man we love.
When other girls are upset because their boyfriend hasn't called today, we just think "You're lucky. You get to talk to him every day. I haven't talked to my Marine in almost a month."
When our friends talk to us about the date they had this weekend, we remember the last time we saw our boyfriend, as he was leaving to go fight for our freedom, and the sad, sweet kisses that we shared. Sometimes we feel like we don't have anyone we can really talk to about our fears and concerns… none of our friends have an inkling of what we're going through.
They think we're crazy because we put ourselves though the separation and anxiety of a deployment.
But we just look at them and don't say a word.
Because we know what it's like to be a part of something bigger…

We are the biggest supporters of the Marines, standing behind them
Even though we didn't go through the training to become a Marine, we are SEMPER FI, always faithful.
Our love for our Marine is what gets us through the day.
We live our lives every day, with a smile and a will to make it through.
At nights when we lay down in bed by ourselves, we think about our Marines, and know that, even though it feels like this separation is the hardest thing in the world, they are going through the same thing, thousands of miles away.
As much as we want to cry whenever we talk to them, we know that we have to be strong, for their sakes and ours, because they're doing the same thing for us.
And when we pray to God to keep him and his brothers safe, we also pray for the day when they get back, and for the day that we will be joined together, for the rest of our lives.
The days are long, and the nights even longer, but in the end its worth it.
In a matter of months, our men will be here, by our sides, and then we can start this life, our life together. And we will remain to the end SEMPER FI.
No questions asked.

Just stop while you're ahead. Seriously.

14 Questions You Should NEVER Ask A Military Wife/Girlfriend/Fiance

People with stupid questions about the military. listen up!

What not to say or ask a military wife/girlfriend/ fiance while they have a loved one that is deployed or has been deployed.

1. "Aren't you afraid that he'll be killed?"

Of course we are terrified. The thought always lingers at the backs of our minds-- but thanks, you just brought it back to the front. Maybe next you can go ask someone with cancer if they're scared of dying..

2. "I don't know how you manage. I don't think I could do it."

It's not like all of us military wives have been dreaming since childhood of the day we'd get to be anxious single moms who carry cell phones with us to the bathrooms. We're not made of some mysterious matter that makes us more capable, we just got told to take on a challenging job and we rose to the challenge.

3. "At least he's not in Iraq."

What do you think is happening in Afghanistan? A huge game of golf? Guys are fighting and dying over there too.

4. "Do you think he'll get to come home for Christmas/ Anniversary/ Birthday/ Birth of child/ Wedding/ Family reunion, Etc?"

Don't you watch the news? No. They don't get to come home for any of these things. Please Don't ask again.

5. "What are you going to do to keep yourself busy while he's gone?"

Try to keep my sanity. Maybe there's a military wife out there who gets bored when her husband leaves, but I have yet to meet her. For the rest of us, those with and without kids we find ourselves having to be two people. That keeps us plenty busy. We do get lonely, but we don't get bored.

6. "How much longer does he have until he can get out?"

Many of our husbands aren't counting down the days until they "can" get out. Many of them keep signing back up again and again because (Gasps!) they love what they do.

7. "This deployment shouldn't be so bad, now that you're used to it."

Sure we learn coping skills and we figure out ways to make life go smoother while the guys are gone. But it never gets easier and the bullets and the bombs don't skip over our guys just because they've been there before. The worry never goes away.

8. "My husband had to go to Europe for business once for three weeks. I totally know what you're going through."

Do not equate your husband's three week trip to where ever with a one year or more deployment to a war zone. Besides the obvious trip length difference, one nobody shot at your husband or two tried to blow him up with an I.E.D. or any other explosive. Your husband could call home pretty much any time he wanted to, he flew comfortably on a commercial plane, slept between crisp white sheets and ate well, paying for everything with an expense account. There is no comparison. We do not feel bonded to you in the slightest because of this comment and if anything we probably resent you a bit for comparing a combat deployment to a business trip.

9. "Don't you miss him?"

No we like being single parents for the length of a deployment. Are you nuts?! Of course we miss them. If we didn't we'd get divorced.

10. "Where is that?"

This is almost like asking a Jewish person from Germany in the 40's who Hitler was. By now all you non military folks should be able to at least know the basics of the war. Anbar Province is in Iraq, and Kabul and Kandahar are in Afghanistan. Muqtada al Sadar is the insurgent leader of the Mahdi Army in Iraq and that Sadr City is his home area. Know that Iran is a major threat to our country and that it is located between Afghanistan and Iraq. We have been at war in Afghanistan for six and a half years and at war with Iraq for four years. These are not Government secrets they are on the news every night and they still make some headlines in the morning papers.

11. "Well he signed up for it, so it's his own fault what ever happens over there."

Yeah well your parents made you so what ever happened in your life they dealt with. Does that seem fair if you had uncontrollable sickness or handicap? Our guys did sign up for it he signed up to protect you and your right to make stupid remarks about his choice. He didn't ask to be blown up, hit with bullets, or see decomposing bodies. Yes it's possible he will but he is doing it not just for a pay check or his family but for everyone.

12. "Don't you miss the sex?! I couldn't do it!"

Well that'd be why you aren't a military wife/ girlfriend/fiancé. We know that sex is not the basis of a strong marriage/ relationship but self control and being able to be self reliable. If sex holds your relationship together how sad. Love holds ours together.

13. "Just call him. Just call him back. Etc.."

Oh sure do you happen to have the number to Iraq on you I Left my phone book at home. I didn't think about it they had to have had installed American outlets in their foxholes to plug their phones in! How could I be so stupid to not think he's a phone call away. Enjoy that you can call yours as for us we will continue to hold on to our cell phones for dear life because it might be the only time we get to talk to him for months

14. Don't you worry he will be different when he comes home?

Of course i worry he will be diffierent when he comes home, you dumbass. how could he not be, he's in a bloody war zone not on a vacation. he will be different, we will be different, but b/c we love eachother everything will be just fine. now please shut up you've given me a headache

Despite all of the bad...

There is alot of good in our relationship. We love each other for one, if I ever doubted that all I would have to do is text him and I'd know for sure how he felt. I've never doubted that so it's a non-issue. When we talk on the phone his voice can still make me smile so big my cheeks hurt, and when we text my heart still jumps a little when I see that it's from him. He always gets what I mean when I say something, even if I don't quite understand it myself. And I can still tell when we're talking on the phone and he starts to smile, because his voice changes, and he's just different. So despite all that bad, which we will get through because we're both stubborn enough to make it better, there is still good in our relationship, and that keeps me going.

Well then.

Today has been a total bummer. Worked from 8-4 and in the process got frusturated at my friends for trying to play manager and boss me around. I was doing something for a manager and my friend just looks at me and goes "You could be taking orders you know" I was like Well, you're not my boss so...and let it trail off. I think that I'm just really on edge right now and so far my Civi friends just do not get it! When I told them what was going on yesterday they were just like I'm sorry. And then we talked about them and their problems. But that's how it always is so I can't say I'm too awful suprised. I mean, they always do that. We'll talk about me and Mister for about oh 5 texts, and then it'll be them and their guy problems for the next few DAYS. Ugh. I mean, i don't want to be the center of attention okay? It makes me nervous, but I would absolutely love to be given at least some attention, LIKE I GIVE TO YOU, when I try to talk to you about my problems. Is that too much to ask?

Saturday, May 22, 2010

I talked to him.

And it's good I guess...he said It's good I understand. So...I guess I'll take it at face value and not really analyze it like I want to. Plus we barely talked after that. Ho Hum.

Friday, May 21, 2010

Help Please.

So I am going out of my mind with these random thoughts running through my head. He said he was gonna request leave, and then I just found out that his mom is gonna try to take a trip to see him in July, she wouldn't just do that if he was gonna be comin home. So...I feel kinda lied to in a way. Or out of the loop, thats a good way to put it. Did any of ya'll ever go through this? I just feel like I'm never told ANYTHING and I'm so sick of it. I'm tired of being the last to know, and the whole "I didn't tell you because I didn't want you to worry". That got old REAL QUICK. I'm so conflicted about what to do, do I confront him? Ask him why I'm NEVER told ANYTHING? I don't even know who his friends are. Or who he works with. Nothing. Or should I just let it go, like I let everything else go, and act like I don't care? I just really don't know what to do. I think I'm going crazy.

Answers to Questions

From Shayla:

SO what do you see for your future? Do you want to have a career in something? How many kids? Where do you want to live? etc

How did you and your Marine meet?

For my future I hope I end upwith a family and kids. I want 4 kids at most, my ideal would be 3 boys and 1 girl, I've always wanted an older brother and I like the idea of having a little girl always protected by her older brothers. I know, its really romanticised, she'll probably hate me for it.

I want to be a Psychiatrist or a Pediatrician, or a Neonatologist. Idk yet, it all depends on what stage I'm at in my life at that point. I know I wanna help with people, and make a difference in somebody's life. And it all depends on what career will let me move around alot.

I sincerely hope that me and Mister will be together when I'm at the point where I'm moving out, so whereever the USMC takes us is where we'll live. As long as I have him, and a dog, I'll be happy :) My dream would be for us to get stationed in Japan, that's where Mom was when she served, and she always talks about how beautiful it was, and I really think that Mister would like it, he's got that adventerous spirit.

Me and Mister met when I was in 8th grade and he was a Sophomore, I had this scary obsessive crush on him, like I was in *love* with him. We started dating when I was a Freshman and he was a Junior, we dated for 9 months, and then broke up :( But we started talking this past summer and we wrote letters while he was in bootcamp from August to November of 09 and decided to try again, and so here we are! We broke up the first time because he moved and we never got to see each other, so I realize that it's kinda weird that we decided to get back together now, but I think we've both really grown up and needed the time apart from each other, because I'm realizing how much he's changed, and I think he's realizing the same about me. I hope so anyways!

Delainey said...
Summer is coming up, what are your plans? Maybe a trip to the good old CA to see the BF?!

OH girl do I wish!!! But unfortunately, not...I'm only 17 and my parents aren't quite ready for that yet...So my summer looks like 40 hours work weeks at McDonalds wishing I was in CA. And working out whenever I can because I'm tired of bein a fat ass! Lol

Well thanks for the questions ladies!


I'm sitting here staring at my phone, realizing how utterly pointless it is to sit there and stare at a phone that isn't gonna ring...feelin kinda snarky at the moment, not sure why. I think I'm gonna turn off my phone now...

Worked last night from 5-10, and it wasn't too bad, the people who came in actually had manners!!! *shocked gasp* I was so proud of the general population. I got to work with the awesome peoples last night too, Krissy Martin, and Meaghann. Krissy is my friend Kayla's sister, and she's a lesbian, and she's super freakin sweet! She's probably the nicest one there to tell you the truth. Martin is the manager over the grill chefs, and he's Hispanic. He speaks English though, and also Spanish, so it works out for when we're trying to communicate with the grills chefs. Meaghann is also a manager, she's pregnant as well! She's really nice, and laid back, doesn't yell like the other managers do.

I got to drive in the dark last night! It wasn't bad at all, except for when I got the the woods near my house, and I though beasties were gonna jump out at me! Can you say sped home?? Well I definitely did, then got home and talked to Dad for awhile, and then proceeded to text some people and fall asleep.

Is it just me or do I have an amazingly boring life??

Help with buttons!

Can anybody tell me how to make a button? thanks!

Falalala feet hurt, I feel like a greasy french fry, but I made money today! And got to drive by myself!!! I didn't wreck!! Yay!!! Haha I felt so cool drivin by myself, I'm such a nerd. It's gonna feel great when I get my checks cashed, and have my own money and stuff.

So I went to bed last night at 10, Mister said he would call but I was just TOO TIRED, and I rolled over at 11:38, and woke up. I picked up my phone to see if Ariel or Tayler texted me back and lo and behold, it started vibrating! Mister called! How is it that this always happens? I always wake up like 30 seconds before he calls. I swear we have telepathy with each other! We talked for a few minutes, but he did the whole you have to be at work early, get some sleep, we can talk tomorrow thing. So I was like okay. And we talked for like 6 more minutes, lol. We're both too stubborn for our own goods. :)

Random Ramblings Bio

Random Ramblings of A Military Wife

Okay, so I hope I didn't break the rules too much by being only a girl friend! Okay so a brief bio about me:

My name is MJ, I'm 17. I am the girlfriend of a United States Marine, "Mister", who is 19. I am currently a Junior (almost Senior!) at a High School in Tennessee. I'm pretty much addicted to blogging, I usually post at least something every day! Me and Mister have a pretty serious relationship for being so young. My favorite color is definitely red. Uhm...I could honestly just ramble about our relationship for days, but that would get a tad bit excessive. But what I will say is he's in California, 29 Palms, and I'm in TN, oops already said that, and we don't get to talk as often as we would both like, but we get by lol. Oh, sometimes I swear the USMC is out to get me, or at least that's what it feels like! Takin Mister away for 2 weeks on a Field jk. I am seriously your uber Marine GF, pretty much my life revolves around him, and I know that my family and probably his mom, doesn't like that too much. Oh, I LOVE HIS MOTHER. She is absolutely amazing. She went through this with his dad, and she's been a Godsend. I love ya Lori! If I see that somebody's wearin Marine GF stuff I have a flip out moment and totally wanna be their new best friend. I'm really friendly, I love meeting new people, but...I blush, alot. Over nothing. Idk why, just started up in 6th grade. I work at McDonalds, and sometimes I hate it, sometimes its tolerable. Just depends on the people who are workin with me really lol.

Well thats all I can think to say, if you wanna follow then hi friend!

Army Wives (Spoiler Alert!!)

So I just got done watching Army Wives from last night. I'm not gonna lie, that was a very heart warming episode. It just made me go from crying to laughing in seconds. I think I started crying about the part when the soldiers got R&R from Iraq and Iran and suprised their families on Mothers Day. I think I stopped at the end? I hope I'm like Claudia Joy when I grow up...she's just so smart, funny, pretty, and she has the perfect husband. Like for real, I want her life when I'm older. Lol. She's also pretty strong, her daughter died, and she got through it, and she's an inspiration. All women like her are. :) If ya'll havent done it yet, and I think the majority of ya'll have, you should check out this blog. This woman is so much stronger than I could ever even dream of being. I hope I never have to be that strong.

Saturday, May 8, 2010


So I found this on someone's blog, and she found it on Facebook. I think this is amazing :)

Drivers License

OMG I'm going on Tuesday to take my road test to get my license! Yes, I know 17 is a little late, but better late than never!! Yay!!

People, period.

Okay, just a small vent. I hate the crabby people who come into McDonalds. They just ruin my day. I just got off of an 8 hour shift, my feet hurt, I've been stepped on, yelled at, talked about, and frankly, I'm tired and smell like a french fry :( And on top of that, my drawer probably came up short, because I mischarged this woman but was too distracted to notice until after she payed and left. Frick. I really wish I could talk to Mister now, he would make me laugh, and be like Baby I know, it sucks. That's all I need right now. We would make fun of people together. I just really miss him right now...and I don't know why its hitting so hard all of a sudden :( Lol I need one of those dang McFlurries to cheer myself up. Oh well, lol

Loving A Marine

Found this on new obsession with this website, not gonna lie, lol


Loving a Marine is not always gay
Loving him truely is a high price to pay.
It's being alone with nothing to hold,
It's being young, but feeling old.
It's loving him whisper his love for you,
It's whispering back, you love him too.
There's always a kiss and a promise for more,
As his ship slowly glides away from the shore.
Reluctantly, painfully, letting him go,
While you're dying inside from wanting him so.
Watching him leave with eyes filled with tears,
Standing alone with your hopes, dreams, and fears.
It's sending a letter with the stamp upside down,
To a far away love, in a far away town.
It's going to church, to kneal and to pray,
And really meaning the things that you say.
Days go by - no mail for a spell,
You wait for some word to hear that he is well.
Then a letter arrives and you're given in,
To open this letter and read with a grin.
Yes, he is well and misses you so,
And filled with the love you wanted to know.
Weeks are like months, and months like years,
You wait for the day you'll have no more fears.
Days go by slowly - how many have passed?
Then suddenly you realize it's here at last!
Yes loving a Marine isn't much fun,
But it's worth the price when the battle is won.
And remember he is thnking of you every day,
He's sad, he's lonely, while so far away.
So love him and miss him and hold your head high,
Be strong and have faith - wipe that tear from your eye.
Your man is a Marine, like those who have gone before,
It's a high price to pay for loving a Marine

People of Walmart

Ya'll my southern must be comin out bc all I can say is Lawd have mercy...have ya'll seen those People of Walmart things? If you ever need to feel better about yourself, or need a laugh, just head on over to these people will make you scratch your head and laugh your butt off.

Greys Anatomy and Private Practice

Oh gosh...Grey's Anatomy last night was AMAZING!!!! Who knew Yang had feelings? I totally almost broke down when she started to cry about her dad, and when she just needed Owen to hold her, that was fantastic. I love episodes where people don't die! Super sad though, Callie and her gf broke up...because Callie wanted a baby. That made me super frusturated, I mean Callie wants a baby, but her gf was just like no, I don't want one :(

Private Practice has me biting my nails this season!!! At the end of last night's episode, when it showed Dell and Maya in that accident, I literally gasped. That one woman who was on there because she had a brain tumor got on my nerves. I mean, she was happy with the brain tumor, but when it came out she turned back into a witch. And she blamed her witchiness on the doctors. For real? I woulda told her to get over it and move on!!! But thats just the way I am...

I love these shows!! Army Wives is another definite favorite, just haven't blogged about it yet! Lol


So I now know why I haven't talked to Mister in so long...he's in the field for two+ weeks...guess who he told (who also forgot..). That would be me...oops...I swear he should just stop tellin me things like that over the phone, I just hear his voice, I don't pay attention to his words, and this is a bad habit of On the upside, the time before the last time I talked to him, he said he's gonna try to request leave. Idk how that's goin, I kept forgettin to ask lol. The badside of this is he may not get predeployment leave if he gets this leave, which means if he gets it around oh say...July, then I won't see him for a whole year...because he won't get predeployment, so he'll leave in January and I won't get to see him for a whole year, I keep repeatin a whole year because I absolutely have NO idea how I'm gonna handle, or be able to do that. Lord, I am really gonna need some help when he's gone.

Field Day!!!!

So inspiration is gone right now, so this may be a tad bit rambly!!! So I'm sitting here listening to a fellow freshman mentor ramble about golf...this is sad...on the upside, today's field day, which means I may get to talk to Mister, which means that no matter how shitty this day is its about to get 10X better!!!!! I haven't talked to him since Saturday morning, and it was like a 5 text convo. Really though, I'm excited. I now look forward to weekends, and Thursdays. Wait...I just realized that McDonalds OWNS me this weekend...When I say owns I mean 700-1500 both days, saturday and sunday...Well I'm dreading the weekend.
Got my first paycheck yesterday, made a grand total of....$33!! Turns out I only got one day in beore the pay period ended on the 30th :( Oh well, I'll have tons of money on the next check, which I get the 20th.

Ugh gotta go corral my freshman, I swear this kid is worse than a 2 year old on crack!!!!

We have power!!! And I got a job...

Okay so last night as I'm lying there sweating to death in my bed trying to sleep, a huge thunderstorm comes up and destroys our power...This was at 2 in the morning. Imagine my frusturation when I wake up to shower for school at 5 in the morning and the power is still not on...We have a well and our water don't work without electricity no going to school...Which means MJ doesn't get to turn in her 400 point research paper for AP English 11...I had to email it to the teacher, and then realized I forgot a works cited page...ugh...another of those FML days lol.

Have I mentioned that I have a job now???? Yep, working at Mickey D' it throught above mentioned english teacher lol. And suprisingly it's really easy, and super fun...I think its the part where I get to use the touch screen computer lol. The people who come get the food tho...Why are people so stupid? Look, i'm sorry that the price is different this time, maybe you ordered differently last time!!! I thought this old man was gonna chop my head off!!!! People get scary when they're hungry and tired at 9pm...*shudder* On the upside, I'm now a pro at soft serve ice cream cones and Oreo McFlurries...although the oreo always ends up on my arm...and shirt...and nose...ugh Idk how...But yeah...this is what I've been up to lately, getting killed by heat and humidity and gettin yelled at at my new job! :) Don't you just LOVE life sometimes??
