I'm a proud army brat and Air Force girlfriend. I am a proud member of Alpha Omicron Pi. Definitely not your typical sorority girl. I just graduate college with two degrees in Children's Studies and Applied Developmental Psychology. I am also a Certified Child Life Specialist.

I am sickly this week. Another cold. I swear my immune system is the worst ever.

I'm seriously running on zero energy yet I somehow get up every day at 6:30, make it to the hospital for my field study, go to class, and work until ten at night. I can't wait for the weekend. I need a break desperately. Of course, It sucks being sick on the weekend. Now I can't do anything fun.

I'm jealous of people who are never sick.

I don't have time to be sick.

I really just want to be able to cuddle up with my man but alas...he is busy. He started Team last week so we barely talk. Hopefully we can see each other this weekend though. Fingers crossed!

The Beginning...

I've started this blog because I feel as though there are so many feelings I need to express; but don't ever get the chance too. I lie in bed every night trying to work through the non-stop ramblings in my head.

I don't know if anyone will read this or even care about a word I write. But I figure it might be a little therapeutic for me. So I guess I should tell a little bit about myself. I'm a senior in college but not graduating until after summer (hopefully). I'm double majoring in Children's Studies and psychology; with an emphasis on Child Life. For those of you who don't know, a Child Life specialists works in hospitals with children who are undergoing traumatic hospital experiences (i.e. cancer, surgeries, etc). They are kind of like counselors.

I'm currently dating a man in the Air Force. We've been together about two months and I'm very optimistic about this relationship. For once, I feel loved and safe.

I'm also a proud member of Alpha Omicron Pi. I love my sisters!

I think that's all for now. Later!
