My first post

So, I finally decided to get a blog. I have not, however, given in to the world of Twitter.

I plan to use this blog to I suppose 'blog' about whatever I please. This could include anything from my life as a wife to the most amazing man in the world to what it is like to be a college student. I want to write this blog to keep my mind strong and to improve upon my writing skills.

So I will just jump right into it!

I am currently a junior at the University of Northern Colorado. Not only am I a full-time student but I am also a senior resident assistant in the residence halls and an intern reporter at the Windsor Beacon. To top it all off I am also a wife to a deployed soldier. He will obviously not be deployed forever but it sure feels like it.

One main reason I decided to start this blog at this time is because my amazing husband is returning home for his two-week leave this Friday. I am pretty sure that everyone I know is starting to get sick of hearing about my hubby coming home so this way I can tell the world all about it.

My husband, who's name is Simon (in case you were wondering) and I have been married for just over a year now. Our wedding was on January 2, 2009. It was a simple and sweet courthouse wedding. We knew that he was going to be deployed that April and we figured the whole deployment would be easier if we were married. I know many people think that we got married at that time for finacial reasons but that is not the case. I can say for sure that we would have gotten married at some point. We were and still are madly in love so it was inevitable that we would be married. We chose to get married at that time because it would be much easier for us to communicate while he was over there if we were married. Even though we have spent the majority of our first year of marriage apart, I can say with certainty that I am still crazy in love with him. I realize that I am only 20 years old (soon to be 21) but I know what love is and I know that I want to spend the rest of my life with Simon.

I read in Cosmopolitan the other day that marriages of younger people (under 25) are more likely to fail than marriages of "more mature adults" (older than 25.) I personally think that is crap. I think that many couples rush into marriage (not that I am an exception) without thinking about the fact that they are going to be with that person for the rest of their lives. I think that in today's society, not many people look very far into the future and therefore dont think about the future of their marriage. My husband and I only knew each other 6 months when we were married. Yes,that is a very short time, however it was love at first sight. I know that it seems clique but it's not. Many people my age are busy thinking about getting laid that they don't stop to consider the fact that they might find someone they love. And yes, I know that is a stereotype (at least for the most part.) When I first saw my husband I just knew there was something very special about him. He was sweet and kind...not to mention sexy. I will explain the whole story in a future blog because it is quite a story and deserves it own blog.

Anyway, I suppose I have made this blog long enough so I will end it for now but there will be a lot more to come.
