A little bit about me and who I am...

 Image hosted by

Hey everyone! Welcome to my little self-centered corner of the web! My name is Darcey (aka Java Hussy, Silver Moon Hawk, Squeak, Daria...I answer to all of them) and I'm from Moline, Illinois.  I am currently a elementary education major at Black Hawk College. After I finish at BHC I will attend Western Illinois University (Quad City campus) where I will get my bachelors degree. As you can tell I'm a very patriotic person...and my theory is this: America, love it or leave it. Nothing pisses me off more than people who bitch and moan about how bad we are but don't have the balls to leave. We have Canada to the north and Mexico to the south and for those of you who are fans of the movie "Titanic", there is a ocean on either side. Get out or shut up. Okay, now that we've got that over...lets go on! :-)
I work at the Coffee Hound Coffeehouse. Being a barista is the coolest job on the's like I'm a drug dealer (caffiene)...but it's legal! haha I'm involved with the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) which is a medieval re-enactment organization. I regularly attend SCA events such as Jubilee Olde English Faire and Warriors and Warlords and others whenever I can get to them. I'll be adding more and more pictures of me whenever I get the time to. Oh yeah, I'm also OBSESSED with the cartoon Invader Zim. If you don't know what Invader Zim MUST check it out.
I also have the most WONDERFUL boyfriend in the world, Eric. He's in the US Army and currently deployed over in Iraq and I miss him like crazy. (I love you Eric!) He's due to come home from Iraq in January 2006. I can't wait!!! Anyway, please take a spin through my website and let me know what you think! Oh! And please sign my guestbook and let me know you were here! Make me feel loved!
Lovin' my soldier,
(aka Hussy)

I Am A Military Girlfriend

I am a military girlfriend. I hold no formal recognition with the powers that be. I am at the bottom of the chain. I hold no Military ID card, I am not a dependent or a parent. The man I love may face unspeakable dangers, and I am at the mercy of those who possess this recognition for news. I understand this and accept this.

I am a military girlfriend. I have promised to be here for him upon his return, no matter how long he is away. People may say I am insane for making such a commitment with no guarantees, but I hold onto our promises and have faith that he will come home safe to me. I know full well that my love for him fuels him in the worst of times.

I am a military girlfriend. there is no ring on my finger to symbolize our commitment, though I love him no less for it. I hope every day that he will be able call because a simple 30-second phone call can bring the greatest spectrum of emotions smiling with tears in my eyes from so much joy and pain. My relationship is based on a brief communication where "I love you and I'm okay" speaks more than volumes and gives me the strength to keep going.

I am a military girlfriend. I take no moment spent together for granted. I hold onto every touch, caress, kiss, every word. I have memorized the feel of his skin, his smell, the sound of his voice, and I play it over and over in my mind so that I will not forget. I cry myself to sleep some nights because missing him hurts so badly, but wake up the next morning, brush myself off, and start a new day.

I am a military girlfriend. The events of the next several months hold my life, my love, and my future in the balance. When you watch the news reports, you may turn away and go about your business relatively unaffected. When I watch news stories of the war I do not see nameless soldiers a half a world away. I see individuals who will be forever changed by war. News of every casualty causes me physical pain and deep sadness.

I am a military girlfriend; not a spouse or family member. When you say your prayers for the wives, mothers, and fathers, please don't forget about me.


The ARMY has my soldier, but I have his heart.
