My degree is in Recreation & Leisure Services, and I work in a hotel downtown in the Gaslamp.

That's great you'll be here for the next few years.... I know we're here until t least April and then after that I don't know! It's a little stressful because I finally found this job that I LOVE and we are having a lot of fun in San Diego so I'm just keeping my fingers crosses!!

You know, since you'll be here for a few more years I think it would be okay to get a pet. You still have time before you'll be moving and it's not that hard to move with pets these days! It really is great to have Kelly around when my husband is gone! Are you on Facebook? There's a group on there for navy wives without kids.... They plan all kinds of get togethers and girls nights and stuff and they're a fun group of girls!

Oh wow, I seriously thought I replied to your comment a loooong time ago -__- I'm so sorry!

But um, we both grew up in Oceanside and met in high school during a music concert we both were in. That was about 5 years ago. We didn't actually start dating until 2 months before he left for boot camp, and am going on to 6 months now. It sucks that more than half of the time we've been apart, but that's the lifestyle of the navy right? How bout you two?! How did you guys meet?

And yeah, I work and go to school here. Trying to get my BS at UCSD in the next year or two while working this boring intern job for an online company. How about you? Do you work or go to school here?

At 12:32am on July 11, 2012, kling said…

Yeah, in total I think it's like 1.5 years worth of training. In some ways though, him being in one place for sure for that long is a little reassuring. I agree with you though, boot camp helped us grow "apart" enough to prepare us for all this distance. Haha A School doesn't seem so bad after those 2 months of nothing but letters.

But wow, an entire year! Have you two been together the entire time?

He's been here since November for A school and is now in C school. He's set to graduate next April but we'll see if that actually happens! We'd love to stay here and are keeping our fingers crossed that since I'm already out here they'll let us stay! How long do you have left here?

Work and school full time is a lot of work! But so rewarding once you finish. I graduated a semester early and worked all through school also full time!

I work full time, downtown, and I love it! That's another reason I hope we stay :) although I do miss staying home with our puppy!

Mine's a Sonar Tech (STG). He's here for school for now but hopefully we'll get stationed here as well! So do you go to school or work out here?
At 4:50pm on July 10, 2012, kling said…

That's so awesome! He and I grew up in Oceanside, so we're reeaaallly hoping that he gets stationed here in SD too, but people keep telling me it's not going to happen because the navy likes to station people far away from home. Glad to know that it happens though! :)

Sadly, I'm stuck here while he's in A School. But he's a Nuke ET and is in Goose Creek for A School for the next...year? Then there's Prototype, so he won't be getting stationed anywhere for at least another 1.5 years.

How long has your guy been in the navy?

Hello there! I'm so new to all this that it's always great to meet new Navy SO's! :) What's your bf/husband's rate? My boyfriend's finished boot camp a month ago and now he's in A School.

Hi! Always great to meet other Navy wives in San Diego! What's your husband's rate?

Good luck to you and yours as you go thru the stages of his training and then out into the fleet.

Thee's alsoa group snipe moms (engineers) that seems to have more responses on.  Yes DC is damage control.  My daughter has been in the navy 3 years and has been in Japan since April 2009.  Yes,it is true from what I have read and what has been posted that you would not be able to go with him to Japan if he is not an E-4, so for your sake, pray he gets his first assignment in the US.

Experiencing the ups and downs of "being military"

So, I'm sitting here, sewing patches onto the upteenth uniform after my husband got promoted. I've sewn quite a few on the wrong side, wrong flap, etc before I got it right. I'm wondering, what are some of the things other navy wives/girlfriends have had to deal with and look forward to now that they are part of the military life style?I know everyone deals with under way time, deployments, duty schedules, etc. But what are some of the small things that exemplify your life as a navy spouse?For…See More

Venting about Duty Days

So my husband has been home for a while (Yay!) I'm so happy because he was gone for a long time. We  have finally settled back into married life and living together. Things are stable again.<Rant>I know its a little thing and I should be grateful for all the time I have, but today is his duty day. I've noticed that I'm always in a bad mood when it's a duty day. Everything is just harder to deal with, and easier to tick me off. I find myself telling my co workers, "I'm sorry, it's a duty…See More
