- Wedding: March 2015
I hope this post doesn’t sound too pathetic (apologies in advance), but I’ve spent the last few weeks moping. My FI is away in different parts of the country at academic conferences, which is soo amazing! Even better, a month or so ago we found out he would be spending a large chunk of next year in the U.S. at a prestigious research institute and has an amazing scholarship to do so. So of course I’m always acting super excited for him because it is the opportunity of a lifetime!
But since he has been away at these conferences in the last weeks I’ve realised how much I miss him! And if I’m in tears and can’t sleep when he is gone for a few weeks I just don’t know how I’m supposed to live without him for 6 months? I can’t even make myself a decent meal at night without him! We’ve been together for almost 7 years – including through Uni (college) so I’ve not lived as an adult without him. All my friends are leaving town (I live in a college town) because they are graduating and moving away so I guess that won’t keep me busy.
My question – how do so many of you do long distance relationships? How do you manage to plan a wedding? I know I will have Skype and email but with the time difference I’ll have to be up super early or super late to speak with him 🙁
