Wow, I never thought I’d actually take the plunge into the blogging world, but here I am, writing my very first blog post!
For those who don’t know me, hi! My name is Kayleigh, I’m a 20-year-old English major living in upstate New York (and there’s a whole lot more around here than just cows!), and I created this blog for a multitude of reasons.
For starters, Unkayventional is the final fruition of an idea I’ve had in my head for a longggg time. I’ve always loved writing, and it’s a my dream of mine to have a book published someday. But I have also always wanted to help people- perhaps through my writing!
Unkayventional is my attempt at creating a space of learning and growing for both blogger (that’s me!) and reader (that’s you!) about a lot of life’s unconventional twists and turns, and finding the good in the bad- particularly with the military!
The military has always played a role in my life, and now that I’m engaged to the man of my dreams- who happens to be in the Navy- it’s about to play an even bigger role!
But, as anyone who knows anything about military life, being a girlfriend or fiancé is completely different from being an official spouse. And even more different? The fact that I’ll be living across the country from my future husband while I finish up college.
I know what you’re thinking: a college-aged girl in a long distance engagement to a Navy sailor? That’s exactly why I made this blog, to share my experiences and connect with other military significant others, and prove that military relationships, although difficult, are worth having and totally doable, especially when true love is in the mix 🙂
I would also like to note that, as I stated earlier, I am just a 20-year-old English major living in Upstate New York and yadah yadah yadah. This all just for fun. I only speak from personal experience and would never advise anyone to do anything that could potentially cause harm or distress. That being said, take all the advice you read on here as suggestions, and with a grain of salt.
Please feel free to comment and share advice and ask questions, but take heed that rude and obscene comments will be deleted and your access to Unkayventional could become limited. This is a safe place for growing and learning; let’s vow to lift each other up, and cheers to an extraordinary life!
