And, try something new now that you have more “me time”! I was bored and lonely so I took up yoga, and now something I look foward to every week!

i second (third, fourth) staying busy.  Also, enjoy this time with your college girls friends and people you won’t see as much, if at all after your college years are over!  4 months seems daunting and in the moment it will still feel like a long time, but once it’s over you’ll think “4 months?  no big deal!”

take care!

IT will be hard but you’ll make it  🙂  And four months is nothing!  Though compared to 5 days it’ll seem a lot.  AND the fact that it’s within driving distance, take advantage of this opportunity to really appreciate each other and appreciate date nights, which you can jazz up.  :]  Make sure you stay in communication with each other, perhaps set up a phone conversation every night at a certain time so you’ll know when to expect each other, or every other night, or whatever works for you guys.  Just something to keep you guys connected.

(1) stay busy

(2) learn to be independent – I will actually say that as much as I miss my fiance, the 5 years we’ve been long distance have been good for me – I am far more my own person than I would have been if we’d gotten married several years ago. My parents got married young and my mom doesn’t know how to be on her own at all. I’m sure this sounds really harsh and not helpful, but let yourself have your own independent life – it makes your time together that much more meaningful.

I find exercise has been one of the best ways to get through long distance.  You have extra time on your hands (well at least I did!), so you might as well get in the best shape of your life!  Plus the endorphins keep you happy 🙂

The best advice I can give you is to not let yourself get down!!!!  Try your darndest to stay positive and upbeat.  It is of course easier to be upset, but it will be so much harder if you give into that temptation.  Go out with friends, pick up a hobby, seriously commit to your homework, talk on the phone with you Fiance, and definitely count down the days till you see him again.  Good luck!
