I know. I’m horrible at keeping up at things. The thing is, these last three months have literally flown by. Today is actually my birthday (so cut me a break?) That boy I was talking about is now my boyfriend, and an amazing one at that. I’m the type of person that will only date someone I see a very strong future with, so I think long and hard before dating someone. That might explain why I’ve been single the last three years. I have pretty high standards, and I love being alone. He meets all of my standards and then some, and I enjoy being with him more than I enjoy being alone. He’s goofy and fun and he likes that side of me (and I feel comfortable being that way with him) and he is so sweet to me. He treats me the way my mother always said I should be treated but never thought was possible. But he’s also a bit rough and tumble and strong and a little sarcastic and very stubborn. He is so handsome and has this amazing smile, it makes him look so happy. He also has ridiculously soft hair. The problem is, I haven’t seen him in two months. He lives 1500 miles away and is in AIT (the army) and I am in school. I have more freedom than he does, but I don’t really have the money to fly down there, pay for the 2 hour shuttle from the airport to the post, and then pay for the hotel, and I don’t have enough time to drive 48 hours in one weekend and still see him for more than a little. The good thing is, with the distance we are learning to work through our challenges together and we are creating a very solid foundation for later years. He should be out of training by the summer, so that’s only a few more months. I am just so lucky that I get to talk to him every day and that I get to facetime with him occasionally.
February has just been a crazy month for us, my birthday is today, his birthday was last week and valentine’s day was the week before that. Valentines day he had access to his computer so we both ordered dinner (the plan was to both do chinese, since that’s how I spent all my single valentine’s days, but he couldn’t get chinese so he went with pasta) and skyped while we were eating, then we both watched Bandits with Bruce Willis on Netflix. It was hysterical and we texted the whole time. We love watching movies together like that. We just watched Side Effects while facetiming, we both got distracted occasionally making faces at each other. I hope to keep this Valentine’s tradition for years to come, I’m not big on the whole fancy thing, it’s supposed to be a day to celebrate your love, and what better way than to be alone with him doing what we love? Our anniversary will be a blowout any way!
Our anniversary is New Years, so March 1st we will have been dating 2 months, it feels like he’s always been a part of my life, but it also seems like it has completely flown by! Which is good, because being away is hard on both of us.
One day I will do a post on how we started dating! It’s quite adorable.
Anyway, that’s things on the boys front. Life is just changing so dramatically all the time. I have grown so much through college and I am almost done. I actually have a bit more of a plan for my life now, which I will post an update on soon, and I have my soldier, who has been the most supportive in this process.
Hope all is well everyone! Two of my classes actually got cancelled, so that’s a great birthday! My 17th birthday and my 21st were probably my best, although they were both pretty sad- nothing awful happened and I had some friends by my side. This year will be good, but I have a feeling next year will be amazing!
