- Wedding: May 2013
Hi everyone! I’ve decided to join the Waiting Boards after being a general Weddingbee lurker for a few weeks now. 🙂 Like I said, I’m still brand-new to all of this, so any help would be appreciated! Since this is my first post, I suppose I’ll tell a bit about myself!
I’m fairly young–20, I’ll be 21 in less than a week (yay birthday!) and I’m a college student in Michigan studying religious studies and currently applying to seminaries. I’ve been dating my college sweetheart E for almost 2 years and we were best friends a year before that. He’s studying philosophy and psychology and soon will be applying to law schools! We’re both super nerds who love creative writing and superhero and Disney movies…almost all our dates have been watching Disney and Superhero movies, especially Tangled, our favorite.
We knew when we started dating that we were each other’s “one” (we’re mushy romantics like that: but we’re also fairly practical in it–my parents were married young, and we’re really good at solving conflicts when they come our way: which is good because we’re fairly argumentative!). Since as someone going into a religious occupation & studying to be a pastor, my denomination frowns on me living with my SO, so we’ve already decided after graduation we will be getting married. So the proposal will probaly happen soon, which is pretty exciting. We’ve talked about it a lot, and I know it’s happening this summer.
The main reason I joined right now instead of waiting until I was officially engaged is a) I’m a big fan of the waiting bee community, and b) E is in Ecuador right now for 4 weeks for research studying medicinal plants in the Amazon, so he’ll be out of contact for the next ten days. We’re both pretty independent, but we’re also used to talking everyday, so it’s going to be hard not hearing from him: I need all the support I can get!
So hi, everyone: I can’t wait to hear about you all and get to know you & your stories!
