I don't really like the idea of doing something for somebody. Don't get me wrong, I love giving people presents or helping them with their uni assignments or paying for their coffee. What I don't like is changing things about myself and my life just to please or satisfy someone else. Or maybe I just… Continue reading Moving For My Partner
I wanted to make a post about my boyfriend so that he has something nice to read while he's away - kind of like a love letter that you all get to read - but I also wanted to let myself spend some time thinking about all the lovely parts of our relationship, so I… Continue reading 13 Reasons Why I Love My Boyfriend
One of the biggest stereotypes about army life - or just military life in general - is the army wife culture. We've all heard the stories about catty fights in facebook groups and spouses who overstep the mark. There's this whole big idea about how any army town is awash with army wive and that… Continue reading Where Have All the Army Wives Gone?

Today has been a whirlwhind! The internet has been down all day, and has taken many attempts to get it back. Turns out it is very difficult to tutor, do uni work, or post on this blog without it!

I've been really sick this past week, a combined effect of changing meds, catching a cold, and it being that time of the month. Because of this I've spent a lot of time at home, doing a whole lot of nothing, and feeling pretty sorry for myself. As a result of this, I spent more… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
I've been feeling pretty trash lately, so I thought I would take some time out to focus on positive things and share them with you. So today I'm creating an anti-bucket list, which celebrates all the things I have achieved so far instead of setting new goals for myself. I'm going to stay within things… Continue reading My Anti-Bucket List

Living in three houses in three states in under a year has wreaked havoc on my support network. The first thing they teach you in mental well being school is to establish a good support network and as for their help when you need it.
