I don't write here very much any more. Since I'm no longer a military spouse, I don't really feel like I connect any more.
But I did want to write this. Because I'm sad and I need to get it out.
My friend Nicole is moving away. I haven't gotten to hang out with Nicole as much as I would have liked in the past year, but, I would consider her one of the closest friends I have here.
This is the shitty part of living in a military town.
This is where I just want to scream "I HATE YOU MARINE CORPS!!!"
I hate the fact that every friend I make is subject to moving away in as little as 3 years. (And sometimes even sooner!)
I haven't been this emotional about somebody moving since it was me moving away from Ohio.
I know it seems silly, because I haven't hardly seen her in an entire year save a handful of times, but, I love Nicole to itty bitty bits! I love her step-son. I love her husband. I love their dog.
I didn't even shed this many tears when my "best friend" and I got into a huge fight and she decided that she didn't want to be friends with me any more. (I sort of knew that one was coming anyways, and she did say some extremely unnecessary hurtful things which made it easier to not care.)
I just don't want her to move, and I know it's selfish of me, but I can't help it. It's not like I make friends easily, and I loved Nicole from the moment that I met her.
I just hate it. :'(
