its been awhile since ive had a reason to post here. recap: i broke up with travis at the end of feb and briefly dated ross during summer session at school. he broke up with me and i was kind of set on not dating the rest of college (only two years). of course- things dont always happen the way we plan them to. im on myspace and had been receiving a fair amount of weird guys messaging me. one day i got a message from this guy joe. it wasnt the typicaly 'youre hawt! message me back baby!' message. he just said that he liked my profile.. and i was cute to boot. so i look at his profile. hes in jax, but from margate. im in st augustine, but from coral springs. for those who dont know-> st augustine is just south of jax, and coral springs and margate are right next to each other. so i message him back saying thanks and didnt expect a reply. well- he replied and we started talking through myspace messages. eventually we progressed to aim conversations.. took us long enough lol. during our conversations i learned that hes in the navy stationed on the uss jfk. im a huge military nerd, thanks to my dad, so i was intrigued by this. the converstaion turned to the different activities we like to do. so i mentioned how i was in band.. turns out his older brother graduated two years ahead of me at my school! also- his best friend growing up was my best friend in high school. talk about weird. joe went to a different high school, so that explained how i didnt know him. the coincidences dont stop there. we end up having quite a few friends in common, and we were at the same places sometimes, but never actually met. right when i moved back to st augustine for school he left for norfolk for a week. i realized at that moment that i was starting to like him, even though we had never met. oct 1 we actually met. i drove up to jax and he gave me a tour of the ship. i was sucking in all the information and asking questions about everything. he thought i was pulling his leg for a while. after that we went back to apt so he could change out of his uniform. we caught a movie and ended up grabbing a bite to eat. all of which he paid for. after that we watched down periscope and goofed around. then it happened. he kissed me. that was all she wrote. i ended up spending the night b/c it was nearing 2 am, and i was getting tired. driving back to school was out of the question, according to him. we've been dating ever since. i seriously couldnt be happier. we are constantly laughing. we do cute things together, like going to the zoo. we are very comfortable around each other. sometimes it takes a while to get that 'connection'. with us, it was almost instant. ive only had one rough day since weve been together, and that was because it was final week. hes genuinely interested in what im studying (deaf ed/elem ed) and is always asking me for signs. we finally met eachothers parents during thanksgiving break. this is the first guy my dad has actually told me that he likes. his family cracks me up. we havent dropped the l-bomb yet, but i know its getting there. its freaking both of us out because weve only been dating just over two months. of course- we're taking things one step at a time. neither of us were expecting to even date, let alone fall in love. hes underway right now, but im driving up to jax with his mom on friday so she doesnt have to do the 6 hour drive by herself. i cant wait to see him again. even though its only been two weeks, i miss him immensely. maybe its because ive been rushing around to different dr appointments (for checkups, everything is gravy).. but who doesnt love to be cuddled after being poked and prodded? neither of us have ever had a 'song' before.. but i was listening to my ipod and matchbook romance's if all else fails started playing. it just reminded me of us. we cant always be together physically, but he is always in my heart and thoughts... so i sent him the lyrics and he agreed. its my first time having a song. guess theres a first for everything huh? anywho- here are some pics of the two of us:
joey and me on the hammock in his back yard.

we're a bunch of goofs... this was at my schools fall ball

its a bit blurry, but i love this picture of us regardless
thats my english mastiff max.. he just kinda plunked his butt down on the couch, even though joe was already there
