First Christmas Away From Home

I’ve had plenty of holidays away from my family. I’ve done Thanksgiving on my own a few times now, and plenty of birthdays and Easters without my family by my side. But Christmas is a first. I did it with my in-laws two years ago (they were just my boyfriend’s parents at that time), butContinue reading “First Christmas Away From Home”

A Child Called It ::: Book Review; Spoiler Free

This book chronicles the unforgettable account of one of the most severe child abuse cases in California history. It is the story of Dave Pelzer, who was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother: a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games—games that left him nearly dead. He had to learn how toContinue reading “A Child Called It ::: Book Review; Spoiler Free”

The Tattooist of Auschwitz ::: Book Review; Spoiler Free

In April 1942, Lale Sokolov, a Slovakian Jew, is forcibly transported to the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Backtrack… He’s NOT Going to UFO?

Y’all, it’s been a roller coaster around here lately. Adam’s deployment team got canceled, after he got pulled from it, after shit’s going down where he was supposed to be going… not to mention my mental health is on the fritz, both of our emotions are haywire, and I’m half a sandwich away from beingContinue reading “Backtrack… He’s NOT Going to UFO?”

What I’ve Learned From Medication; Mental Health Awareness

I am a basket case. Maybe not in a literal sense, but sometimes I feel that way. I feel overwhelmed with life and underwhelmed, all at the same time. I have a heart light with joy but heavy with pain for others. I have chronic depression. I have anxiety. I- unfortunately- have let these beContinue reading “What I’ve Learned From Medication; Mental Health Awareness”

One Month Before Solitude; Managing The Military

Well dang. We’re just a month away from Adam being deployed for up to six months. How can this be possible?! Now, he and I have survived the long distance thing before. We’ve done more time apart and long distance than being physically together, I believe. We’ve been together since the very beginning of ’17,Continue reading “One Month Before Solitude; Managing The Military”

Tasked For Deployment

Well… here’s the article that I was hoping I’d never have to write but knew that I would at some point. Adam is tasked for his first deployment. Yes, I am internally screaming. In all reality, I’ve known about this for a while now, I’ve just failed to update a majority of the world. I’veContinue reading “Tasked For Deployment”

Airman Leadership School (and how I survived)

First off, this post isn’t about me- but it does concern me. Adam has recently graduated from Airman Leadership School (ALS)!! This means that he is now a Staff Sergeant and is allowed more freedom to be in charge. That’s kind of an oxymoron though, isn’t it? The freedom to be in charge. For theContinue reading “Airman Leadership School (and how I survived)”
