So it’s not REALLY really long distance. Two hours…. that’s how far it is from FI’s hometown, where I’m currently living with his parents, to MY hometown, where he just moved in with MY parents!
Crazy, I know.
Fiance just graduated in December, and since August we were both living with his parents. The plan was, I get a job (well, I have one, just not a well paying job, so pleasepleasepleaseplease let there be good news tomorrow!) and he would start grad school under an assistantship with his prof. Just in case, he also applied to a job down close to my hometown. Well, long story short, his prof isnt quite sure he’ll have the assistantship grant, and the job is seasonal anyway (although re-occuring), so he accepted the job from March – Nov, and he should (*should*) start grad school NEXT Jan.
Which is why I’m staying up here in this area, to keep searching for a job, and also to take care of the house we are hoping to buy (seriously, real estate is MAD cheap in this neck of the woods.) And basically we’ll see each other hopefully most, or at least every other, weekend until Nov.
We’ve been “long” distance before… the summer we first started dating we weren’t together 24/7, although we were only 45 mins apart. And then that fall, we were more than 5,000 miles apart because I was studying abroad in Rome. We fell in love during that time, and when I came back, we knew we were in it for the long haul. And when I graduated in 2011, we were 2 hrs apart until last August when I moved back in… so we’ll survive 🙂 we’ll make it….
It would just be nice to hear some kind words. It was tougher than I imagined driving back up today, and now, at night, I’m looking around his room and realizing I’ll be by myself a lot more than I had been over the last 6 months, and it made me a little sad.
