    New around here :)

    Advertisements
    Hi friends!

    I literally just made an account today so I thought I'd make a little intro post about myself to continue procrastinating on this paper I need to write lol. My name's Sia, I'm a junior in college, and my SO is in the Army.

    I came here mostly looking for people to talk to who understand what it's like to be a milso! My guy is currently on deployment and like everyone I have good days and bad days. Most of my closest friends have no idea what I'm going through and are generally insensitive about it on my bad days, though I don't think they mean to be. Since I don't live near post, I have to seek out online milso communities (and watch Army Wives lmao) to feel heard, so here I am!

    Looking forward to (virtually) meeting y'all :D

    I cannot imagine how bad my procrastinating would have been had I gone to college when things like reddit or memes were things (I am going on my impression that reddit is a meme site and not for porn, so if I'm wrong forgive me).

    Anywhooooo

    WELCOME!!!!

    That’s a pretty big call (and honestly quite a mature one) to make in high school. What drew you in?

    It makes a nice contrast with your screen name too. I’m going to assume your boyfriend’s name ISN’T Marius?

    Well I've always liked punk and hardcore (I've never really been involved in the scene though because my local scene... severely lacking lol), and I've never been into the idea of drugs and alcohol. I'm a bit of a control freak so anything that makes me feel out of control freaks me out. So when I found a whole community of people who felt similarly about drugs and alcohol, I finally felt like I could be heard, especially since when I was in high school I had quite a few friends who would get fucked up every weekend and would tease me about not being into it. :p So I claimed edge!

    People have multitudes ;D But omg no it's not Marius Love that you caught the reference though! It's my favorite musical

    I get soooooo sucked into Reddit lol. I could spend hours on the SkincareAddiction subreddit! And omg yeah Reddit is like a super large forum... definitely skews more towards memes

    Honestly I started watching Army Wives ~ironically~ and then got hooked I just felt like I could relate a lot to the characters (even though I'm not married), whereas all my friends irl either can't understand the nature of my relationship, or refuse to :p Plus it's waaaaayyyyy dramatic and I love all the drama lol. I don't think I'm emotionally ready to do army movies yet, I'd probably cry the whole way through! But omg the army songs!!! I had to learn an old Soviet WWII song called Katyusha for a class (I'm a Russian major) and it's about a girl whose lover goes to war and she writes him letters... I was telling DB about it and he goes "does she fuck Jody at the end?" I laughed so hard, so now I can listen to that song and not be emo over it

    Thanks for the warm welcome y'all!!

    I used to work with a guy who knew the whole musical off by heart. We'd be doing prep before service and he'd suddenly begin BELTING it at the top of his voice, including pushing all the way up to falsetto range for Cosette. I have no idea why he did this, but it was...strangely impressive.

    I also read the book last year. Vastly pregnant and forbidden from doing anything remotely interesting, I went for the thickest book I could find, and the average copy of Les Mis is very like picking up a brick.

    If you haven't read it, I honestly do recommend it. It's long, and he has a tendency to wander away from the point so he can go on long tangents about Waterloo, but it's so good. You say you're a Russian major...you should be very comfortable with sprawling epics where almost everyone dies, no? That's the heart and soul of Russian literature? So what if this one is French, it feels Russian.

    Jody, no. Stepan...maybe.

    My husband has the habit of using those slightly morbid army songs as lullabies for the kids. Based on purely what he sings to babies, I could teach you at least four you probably don't know.
