My Boyfriend Graduated The Police Academy

There were so many emotions running through me - proud, emotional, fear.

My Boyfriend Graduated The Police Academy

Milestones are something I love being able to share with my boyfriend. Times of celebration and spending extra time with family is one of the best things. We spent this weekend with each other and his family and I was in total bliss, but there were so many thoughts and emotions running through my head.

Being an officer isn't an easy job and my boyfriend's abilities and knowledge are not just impressive, but admirable. Listening to him talk about his career and his hopes for the future is one of my favorite things to do. This happens quite often in the car and all I can do is sit there and smile. Sharing our life together is something I look forward to every day.

But I am also so scared of what's to come because there is so much unknown.

Right now, we don't know when we'll see each other again because of his schedule and adjusting to the crazy 12+ hour days and my moving back to school in a month. Time is limited and scarce, which made saying goodbye so insanely hard because I don't know when I'll see him again and be able to physically see if he's doing okay. When we first met, we saw each other just about every day because we were at the same college. It hasn't been like that for a year but the added element of danger and unknown doesn't help the constant worries that come with doing long distance.

It isn't a secret that being an officer has the potential of being dangerous - which is terrifying to think about. It's terrifying to think that one call could drastically affect his life, our life together. At the end of the day, with lots of prayer and hope and optimism, I have a lot of hope for him and his career.

This weekend was just a small glimpse into our future and I'm so looking forward to all of the adventures and milestones to come. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have found someone so driven and motivated in regards to his career. I'm so hopeful for everything he's going to do with his career and for our life together.

I love you, babe, be safe and come home to me.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
