Alexa, 20, California. Kinesiology major at the University of San Francisco :) This is where I blog about my life and the things that make me smile. I am in love with an amazing man named Randy, who is a Medic in the U.S. Army. He is stationed at Ft. Bragg in North Carolina and he was deployed once. Although we may be miles apart, our love knows no distance. We have been together for 3 years <3
elksongs said: It’s really sad that people do see if that way still, but generally older people because their ignorant older generation hasn’t died out yet. -_- You two are perfect though and that’s plain as day to see and the only thing that matters. c:
I definitely agree with that. It’s just sad to know that there are still those opinions out there! This is so sweet though. Thank you love :) I miss you!
When Randy and I were at the USO at the airport we were watching that show “What Would You Do?” I love that show :) On it, they had a Caucasian girl and an African American boy (both actors) who were playing a couple in love. They were in a restaurant telling the girl’s father that they were together and in love. Keep in mind, they were in a part of the country that apparently looked down on interracial relationships.
The father (also an actor) blew up at the couple and was outraged that his daughter was with an African American man and not someone that was white. As the couple left, real people around the father (who did not know that it was all fake) started to comment. An older woman was in tears saying “how could a pretty girl like her pick someTHING like THAT?” I was outraged watching this because never in my wildest dreams did I think someone could be that ignorant. She also said “people need to stay with their own KIND.” Aren’t we all human beings? All children of God?
This hit me hard because Randy and I could be considered an interracial couple. I am White and he is Latino. It is completely clear that we come from 2 very different backgrounds. I started to wonder if people looked at us like that. It made me really upset because I don’t see Randy as a different race…and he doesn’t see me in that way either. We are 2 people completely in love. But then I realized I don’t care what other people think. He’s my everything and we fit together like 2 peas in a pod :) No matter what the color of our skin is! What do you guys think about this?
Thank you sweetheart :)
The only word to describe this past weekend is AMAZING.
Friday: my flight was supposed to leave from San Francisco at 2:30, but it didn’t leave until 4:30 because of the fog :( that’s what I get for flying out of SFO lol. I ended up getting to Raleigh, NC at 1:00 AM. It sucked, but we made the best of it :)
Saturday: Randy and I went to Waffle House for breakfast (how is this not a thing everywhere) and then ended up relaxing all day and cuddling in bed until we made the drive to Ft. Bragg to see Darius Rucker in concert on base! We were all excited and even paid $30 to be in a VIP tent with free food and great seats. However, there was major thunder and lightning and pouring rain which pushed the concert late. We decided to leave because it was getting late and we had about an hour and a half drive back to Raleigh. We were disappointed that we couldn’t see the concert, but it was the right decision. Darius Rucker didn’t start performing until about 9:45 PM and that would’ve made us get back to Raleigh at like 1 AM. Nooo thank you.
Sunday: Waffle House once again.. Lol don’t judge me. Pretty much cuddled all day and then had a really great fancy dinner at Sullivan’s Steakhouse :) I will post a picture later. We looked so nice together and dressed up!
Monday: I left :( it was great that I had about a 7 PM flight. We cuddled all day and went to Cheesecake Factory for lunch/dinner and then spent time at the USO at the airport. They are so nice there!! We said see you soon and it was really sad:( but we are so in love and had such a great weekend together that we were happier than we realized. It’s just a matter of time before we are together again ❤️ hopefully about 2 months:)
