PostSubject: How are we feeling with our men gone?   Sat Sep 11, 2010 12:34 am

I just wanna check in with the other ladies who are dealing with their men being at BMT currently!
Or have been through it before and have some wisdom to share.

I can't believe it's almost been a month!
I'm hoping the next month will just fly by because I'll be busy with school and the sorority.
I got another letter today, it was in a cute little Air Force envelope and on A.F. stationary :)
Nick said he's been made weapons manager (i think thats what he called it) and told me about how well he's doing with sit-ups/push-ups/running, I'm so proud of him!
My parents and I are going to meet with his parents in a few days to talk about me going to graduation with them.
I've been writing letters everyday and he says they're helping him get by and he dreams about me every night.
People are still skeptical and insensitive about him being gone but I'm almost half-way there!
Why would I ever give up now?

How is everyone else doing?

That's awesome that you're almost halfway through it now! You've definitely got the next few weeks :) I bet getting a letter was a great feeling though! Do you for sure get to go to graduation? I definitely hope so, I've heard it's such a great experience!

My boyfriend isn't at BMT but he's still gone since he's deployed so I can definitely relate to being apart at least and I know it isn't easy. Let me know if you ever need anything or just to talk! :)

Well, I don't have much longer left.
Nick starts week 5 Monday. It's been over a month since he left! I can't believe it! I posted this on facebook eariler in the AF Girlfriends group; Time seems to go by SO slow during the moment, by flies by over all. I can't believe I'm almost done.
I just push myself forward everyday. I have my days where I feel super lonely, but I just have to remind myself that it's worth it!
So weapons manager is his job during BMT? I believe Nick said that he is "Academic Advisor" or something like that and that he has to clean the T.I.'s office. 0.0

And I know what you mean about people being insensitive. My dad was saying the other day that he doesn't know if he wants me to go to Texas or not next month. But I assured him, with a few choice words, that I am of the age now to make THOSE decisions by myself and that I will be going to Nick's BMT graduation one way or another.

Well, I tried talking to my parents reasonably about me going to Lackland and using my OWN money and they tried to talk me out of it, but I kind of lost it and was like, "I'm sorry but whether or not you give me your blessing, I'm still going with MY money!"
They'll warm up to it after meeting Nick's parents, they are incredible people!

@Chrissy, I love that our men have the same name and are there at the same time!
What TRS is he in? (can we post that here?)

Eh. I'm not sure if we are allowed to post that or not.
But to play it safe, I'll just say that he has a pretty tough T.I.
But Nick says he has HUGE respect for him and says he is a good guy.

And I call Nick "Nick" but it isn't his first name. It's actually his middle name. I can't tell you his whole name, but it's funny because it's 3 first names. :D

I felt fine while Jake was gone, I'm a odd person. But I was in my second semester of my senior year. Actually Jake left like 2 days after it started, so I couldn't go say bye at the airport. If you keep positive about the whole thing and VERY busy time will go by so fast.

I played basketball, had school, & went to work during the 8.5 weeks and couldn't tell you when I had time to think about him being gone. It was sad of course the first few days and then we would write & everything.

Don't look at the negative and just be positive time will fly. :)

Same here. First year of college has kept me so busy, that I'm always so surprized by the time Friday comes around.
Weekends and night time is the worse though. I hate going to sleep at night knowing Nick won't be there in the morning. And the weekends drag on forever, because I get all jumpy about getting a phone call.

I think part of it being so hard for me is because I'm still home for the summer and bored!
And hated my job and had wayy too much time to think.
Also, that's where I met Nick, at work haha

BUT I get to leave in 4 days to return to school and finally move forward and have a life!
:D

I still had a week left of summer when Nick left, so that was the hardest week for me.
I've lost about 5 pounds since he left though because I haven't had a boyfriend to feed me junk food all the time now. :P

And I know what you mean about the thinking part. I think so much that I give myself headaches sometimes. =/

Haha I'll probably lose weight because food isn't really as appealing to me anymore, as cliche as that is!
And yeah I get headaches so much now, I know the feeling haha

Haha probably!
I feel like a cliche because you know when you're in love they say "can't eat, can't sleep, can't think about anything but them" etc?
That's me :P
Cliche, I know hahaha
