Maiden name? Married name? Some combination thereof? Which one should you use professionally, especially if you marry after you’ve established your career ... and your name isn't Beyoncé.
When you hear 'Beyoncé', you know exactly who she is, no last name needed. Her husband, Jay-Z, is also known by only one name, and that name isn't even his birth name or a ‘real’ name. But when the two tied the knot, they both legally changed their last names to Knowles-Carter, paying homage to both sides of the family.
I have these down-in-the-dumps moments when my husband is deployed, and I’m playing the single-parent game.
It’s so hard. I’m tired. I don’t get a break. It’s lonely. I’m never alone.
I just want to pee/eat/shower/read a book without the constant “Mama! Mama!” and grabby little hands every few seconds.
Like most military families we’ve moved, a lot. Eight times in 15 years.
Three years ago, when I started college, I learned …well, I learned a lot of things. But one of the most important things I learned was that writing assignments and their due dates in a planner did not work for me, and neither did physically carrying everything I needed to study effectively.
Why didn’t it work, you ask?
Samantha Mahon is preparing to PCS next year.
With two little boys, two large dogs, and a husband who has dragged her up and down the East Coast during his Navy career, she’s got a lot to juggle.
Toys. Furniture. Family records. Bees.
Three whole hives of them, to be exact.
The school bell rang, class is in session. Are you still standing outside the front door?
Are you just waiting to apply until you save enough cash to attend?
We can help you get started. At Bryant & Stratton College military spouses automatically qualify for a $6,000 scholarship to work towards their online degree.

So, here’s the good news: It took less than two weeks for me to get a referral under the Priority Placement Program (PPP), Program S (Military Spouse). The not-so-good news: It’s for the lowest position I said I would consider and I’m not sure I want the position now.
But, I’m getting ahead of myself.
