    Confused Alright, I'm finally going to ask!

    Advertisements
    Okay, don't judge me, but I'm totally new to the whole military lifestyle. What does everyone mean when they say, "DB", "DH", "SO" and so on... I've been trying to be smart and catch on myself but had no luck haha. Can someone explain? haha

    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    No problem, I was confused too! And some of threads are hard to miss at the beginning. If you go to the main threads there are some awesome stickies right at the top.

    It can also mean Darn (when ranting & such, usually people specify if it's darn, though )

    I was also confused in the beginning. I felt like I needed a cheat sheet.
