i miss the days where photosynthesis was just defined as a plant gaining energy from the sun to make food. We could’ve left it at that but no! Now its all about thylokoids and electron transport chains >_> simplicity how i long for your presence. ♥
off to hang with my favorite people in psychology.
sn: my interview went great and Andy’s care package is on it’s way to him as we speak, and I found out my new addiction is cherry coke.
“Long distance is hard. You have to trust that as you each change on your own, your relationship will also change along with you. It takes hope, good humor, and idealism. It takes a massive dose of courage to protect the relationship at all odds. It is hard, but worth it. You’ll both be stronger as a result.”—Craig M. Mullaney, The Unforgiving Minute: A Soldier’s Education (via simply-quotes)
I’m going to agree with this one in even in between the lines :] I have a job interview at 1 so wish me luck, I’m sure my optimistic attitude will get me a long way. Life hasn’t been this good in a while, I’ve never been one for reading my horoscope due to inaccuracy but today they got me to the T.
What makes you care so much about my relationship with Andy that would make you say such mean things about us. I’m in this tough situation because I choose to, and I’m not even complaining about it. As far as I’m concerned this will be worth it for me regardless of what you anons have to say.
do you smoke pot? and how do you feel about people who don't?
I won’t lie, I used to and i liked it. But since I’m all about school, my future, trying to get a job, my boyfriend, and just a new life, pot is in my past.
To be honest, I don’t care whether a person does it or not, kind of their own business and not something for me to pass judgement on.
I won’t go around celebrating them like COOL STORY BRO, but i won’t be the one telling them to quit either. If you don’t smoke more power to ya, it’s a silly habit so you should feel happy you haven’t bothered with it. :]
Thanks for such a thought out answer. Its been tough recently we were together all the time and now we cant be.
I understand where you’re coming from there, Andy was only home for 4 days and I ended up getting used to his presence being there at all times. Like waking up to him, going to lunch, dinner and breakfast, even meeting up with him after my classes. When you get someone you love taken away from you so suddenly it’s hard, i know, but keep your head up, keep in mind you have to be strong for each other and look forward to every chance you get to see her from now on. Every minute is a new memory you can hold on to while you’re apart :]
How do you cope with your boyfriend being gone? I go like 3 weeks without seeing my girlfriend and i hate it so much and shes only away at school
Long distance is a tough situation to be in and it honestly takes the two people in the relationship to make it work. With a lot of trust, patience and love it can definitely work. Long distance isn’t for everyone, because it includes a lot of hurt, yet when you both mutually realize that it will be worth it at the end when you’re able to be together, then by all means it will work :] Andy just left 2 days ago and its so tough not waking up to his face in the morning, yeah 7 months seems like a long time, but keep yourself busy and concentrate on you. The more you do with your life the faster time will go by and the less time you’ll spend thinking about what your significant other is doing at the very moment. I’ve seen through other couples experiences that one of the toughest things happens to be communication, and not having something to talk about because they never saw their significant other they tend to drown them in I love you’s which can get old. If you’re able to see your girlfriend how you say then this should be the least of your worries. When you are together try to make the best of the time and create some memories, plan what you will do the next time she’s there. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, if the both of you are equally dedicated. As far as for Andy and I we attempt to talk every day at night through skype, we send each other surprise letters in the mail, and we try to support each other on everything we do. Girls like detail, so every now and then when you get the chance send her a letter, some flowers, a bag of skittles, etc. You’ll be surprise with how much a girl appreciates the little things! Best of luck to you both, hang in there it’ll pay off in the end! :]
Bio major, Theater minor?? Seems a little like polar opposites lol Must be smart and creative??
haha I get this a lot around school when I mention my subjects of concentration. Biology is the major I’m taking to have a foundation when I apply for Dental School where I want to be an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, science is also my passion, never history, nor math, just science. When it comes to Theater as a minor, I’ve always found it fun, the acting, the personalities, plays, I did theater through out high school where I became a thespian, and to be honest with all the stress of being a Biology major I could use a little fun in my schedule. :]
You write the sweetest things. I love reading your stuff. I hope 7 months go really fast for you. In the end it will be a strength for you guys. If you ever need anybody to talk to...My name is Megan, and i would gladly talk to you. :)
Thanks Megan :] you have no clue how much appreciate the support considering this is all so new and unexpected to me. You can be sure you’ll hear from me every now and then. Andy and I look forward to how all this will pay off in the end all the time :]
Andy said he wishes he weren’t going to Afghanistan anymore. I never thought I’d hear him say that considering he’s so passionate about what his job entails. “Distance makes the heart grow fonder” was proven to me these past 4 days. We have our ups and our downs but I couldn’t ask for a better relationship to be honest.
"We are the perfect couple, we’re just not in the perfect situation."
I dropped him off at the airport this morning, looks like its back to normal UCF life for me once again, can’t wait to see him again in 7 months which I’m hoping will pass by in a flash.
