How I Love the World of Blogging

Well ladies I just have to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the kind comments you've left me. They truly make my day and I usually can't quit smiling for at least an hour after read them all.

Matt and I started dating when I was 16 and he was 18 and have been together for almost 6 years. I had friends in high school but by the time my junior year rolled around they were all interested in sneaking into the nightclubs, drinking and partying not just on the weekends but usually every weekday too. I've never been one to party or drink and neither is Matt. When we would go out to parties we just both said no to drinking, it's always easier to stand your ground when you have someone by your side.

Needless to say, my friends and I drifted apart because we just didn't value the same things anymore and lacked anything in common. I made Matt the priority in my life and since none of them were in a serious relationship, they just didn't get it. Since then I haven't had many friends, but, the few I did have were quality relationships. With me, it's all about quality, not quantity.

Melissa is my closest friend and I've missed her so much since she moved to Louisiana and now to Italy, but I'm also so excited for the adventures she'll get to experience. It's been hard to reach out to the people that I go to school with because I dont' live on campus and my time is pretty consumed with my family and Matt. The university I go to is small and 2/3 of the students don't live on campus so it's not really a tight-knit community among the students. I'm hoping that when I start the nursing program things will be different.

The friendships I've made in the past few months on blogger really mean alot to me. I'm continually surprised that anyone, especially someone I've never met in person before, would care to know about my life. I'm also overwhelmed at times at the kindness and support that is poured out through this network of people.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks
I hope you all have a beautiful day!

Welcome to the blogosphere! I understand trying to make friends! I'm living in a new state and know absolutely nobody! Good luck with that!

Yes! Isn't blogging fun :) And I of COURSE do not mind that you used that pro-life button! I actually got it from another friend, so I feel quite certain that the more people that see it, the better! :)

i think you're totally right, it's about quality friendships not quantity. that's something you learn fast growing up as a military brat, but somehow it's still hard, even knowing.

you seem like such a grounded person, i'm so glad you started a blog so we can learn more about each other!
