I’m sure every girl was jealous of Kelsey DeSantis at the 236th Marine Ball Convention with Justin Timberlake as her date.  The singer turned actor kept his promise after Friends with Benefits co star was asked, and accepted, a date to a Marine Ball.  Justin got in on the deal and this weekend kept up to his end of the bargain.  Timberlake enjoyed his evening, taking to his blog to describe Kelsey and the event:

She also simultaneously seemed like she was nervous about the whole evening and if I was going to enjoy myself. “Are you ok?” she asked 2 or 3 times. “I hope you are having fun. I know you will once my crew of friends get here to the table.” I have to tell you, it’s not every day that I meet a 23 year old girl and she’s more worried about if I’m having fun or if I’m comfortable! It hit me all of a sudden that these were the type of people that look after us and our freedom… Humble, concerned for others before themselves… This was the type of person our Marine Corps was building. I was really blown away.

Justin, you’re a stand up guy in my book. Every one who is serving or who served in the armed forces - you’re heroes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Floating Lanterns, by: { Dwight K. Morita }

These floating lanterns memorialize those that have passed away at Ala Moana Park in Honolulu, Hawaii.  As the sun sets in the background, small boats with Buddhist monks and church volunteers help to launch and shepherd the small armada of lantern ships, each inscribed with sentiments from family and friends.  This traditional Buddhist practice began as a small ritual, but has since grown to become a major event attracting thousands of people of all faiths from around the world.

Expect to feel alone at times. Expect to miss calls and when you wake up to that missed call to feel upset. Expect to hear from them every day and then you freak out when he doesn’t call for 2 days, 5 days, 7 days or 14 days. Expect to feel that your mind is just going crazy and you’re about to lose it. 

When you feel alone, go out and hang out with your friends. Unless you’re already so deep into feeling alone and don’t want to do anything, lay in bed and watch romance movies or comedy movies the whole day and just make the next day a new day. When you miss their call and you get upset, just remember if anything was wrong, he would have emailed you to let you know why exactly he called, so just get up and continue your day and maybe you’ll get the call later that night. When you hear from him every day for a week straight, don’t take a moment for granted that you guys are talking. And when you don’t hear from him for the 2 days, 5 days, 7 days, or even 14 days try not to freak out and think worse case scenarios, chances are he’s tired and has been super stressed while he’s at work. When you are about to lose your mind and you think you need that good cry, then cry it out. When you are about to lose your mind try to do things that you know will soothe your mind and make you feel better. 


Distance really is just a mindset. Its a mental test. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been dating 5 weeks or 5 years if you can’t handle it, then yes it will put a strain. But you have to put all doubts and fears out the window. Write them down and burn the pages. Distance doesn’t ruin relationships, people ruin relationships.
