My view from the training center
Round two as a cadet, different type of cadet and different uniform... still managed to keep the same hairstyle though.
Enjoy this gem, be sure to turn the sound on.
Riley knocked my tooth back and out of place. If you’ve ever dislocated something think of it like that. It was crazy swollen and bloody. Putting the tooth back in place, by myself, was more painful than getting hit in the face. #puppylove🐶
I’m so in love with this piece. Thanks @tattoosbyturkey, you have no idea what this tattoo means to me.. especially for today.
If you take the time to read something today let it be this.
I’ve debated posting something like this for a while, but here it goes. Two years ago today a man I trusted thought he deserved more from me. Two years ago today I lost my voice, my power, my courage, and my strength. After my assault I notice that I didn’t speak out as much as I used to. I stopped singing in the car at the top of my lungs for eight months. I still look over my shoulder out of fear. Strange sounds late at night scare me. Certain smells remind me of that night. I shuddered and cried if someone touched me and I didn’t know it was about to happen. I made my close friends and family ask me for permission before they were allowed to touch me. I became a shell of the person that I was. Every day I try and take steps to get my voice back. To take control back over my life. I still zone out and think about that night on replay. I don’t drink because I was drunk when it happened. If I am severely triggered I have to sleep with a light on.
I am not saying any of this to get attention, but rather to open a dialogue we all desperately need. People don’t talk about things like rape and sexual assault because it is an uncomfortable topic. I didn’t tell anyone for the longest time because I didn’t want them to feel uncomfortable with what happened to me… how twisted? We need to create an environment that allows people to talk about what they suffered through. Internalizing something as serious as that can destroy a person.
Help me open a dialogue.
Here is a piece I wrote for class, I hope you enjoy it. #onlyhuman@onlyhuman
This woman is my savior, my guardian angel that is always looking out for me, and the love I never knew I needed. Her eyes are my home, her voice soothes my soul, and her laugh lights a fire in my heart that will never stop burning. Thank you for everything my love. @woodsoe3

Thanks for yet another amazing birthday 😘❤️
Definitely had a great time exploring New York. It was a beautiful city, but it doesn’t have anything on you @woodsoe3
My night was fun
Date nights are always the best with you ❤️❤️. I love you @woodsoe3
Doing both and looking awkward as usual
Great night spent with some great people. Definitely missed Master Sergeant (pic 2).
