Goals & Objectives

I am a terrible blogger, just so you know. But I'm giving this a shot so that the next "me" who comes along can find some answers, camaraderie, and maybe a little inspiration.

I'm a girl in my twenties who is in the process of joining the US Navy. Already there have been many joys and frustrations, and I haven't even signed on the dotted line yet! One thing I've been wishing for this whole time is a first-hand perspective from anyone else who is doing or has done the same thing. I hear from boys, I hear from retirees, I hear from military spouses, but finding a twenty-something single girl in the military to have a heart-to-heart with has proved difficult.

My hope is that documenting every step of my experience, from signing up, to saying goodbye to friends and loved ones, to boot camp (I'll give permission to a friend to post my letters), to A School, to deployment, & beyond, will give other girls a resource for following their own dreams into the military.
