It's been awhile since I last posted, but today starts one of the best days of the year. I'm finally heading to vacation in the Outer Banks with a bunch of family/friends. We embark upon our journey at 4.30am so I should probably try to get some sleep considering I will be one of the many people driving. I've got my books and my music to keep me company while I'm not driving and also to have something to do while I'm basking in the glorious sunlight. :)
I can't wait to get back though. I've met, well started talking to an old friend of mine again. We went out on a date this past Monday and things went well. He's in the Army and has been for the past 10 years. It's actually how we met. But we talked about me joining the Air Force and the more we talked the more I realized it is something that I want to do. So when I get back from my week long vacation I'm going to sit down and have a talk with my parents and let them know that I am joining as an Officer in the United States Air Force. And then it's off to the recruiting office to sign up. Somehow, deep down, I always knew I was going to end up in the military. I just never gave it real thought until recently. And I can thank my ex, Kyle, for that. My love for him will never diminish, but will always have a place to call home in my heart. I can honestly say that he was the first man I ever truly loved and that I will always thank him for allowing me to know what love is. But it's time to pick myself up and move on with my life.
