Day 3: Make something out of paper, but don't use scissors or glue or draw on it.
Warning, this is a lovey dovey mushy crap thing.
Well, I'm going to use scissors, and glue, and probably going to draw on it, too. But I can't tell you what it is. Because, J. is super supportive of this idea, and he's the only one I know, for a fact, will read this. It's his Valentine's Day surprise so this is a marker to say that yes, I did write today, but I'll have to put it up after I see him.
But how about today, I'll just say how awful long distance relationships are. They suck. A lot. And the sad thing is, I haven't been in a relationship that wasn't long distance since high school. They say, "absence makes the heart grow fonder, but it sure makes the rest of you lonely." Well, I have to admit, it makes my heart fond, but also a little sad.
And I have to say that this is by far both the best and worst long distance I've dealt with. It's the worst because I've never missed someone so much. I've never cared about someone so much and wanted to see them like this. But it's the best because he makes me feel like he's right here sometimes. I get long distance kisses through the phone and through Skype. On days we can't talk, there are videos telling me good night. We've figured out how to play games on the computer and keep up with the little day to day things so I feel like he's still a part of my day, every day. I wake up every day thinking, wow, I'm the luckiest girl in the world. Maybe it's the whole "beginning of a relationship" thing, but I've never felt like this even at the beginning.
Anyway, so yeah, I'm making something for Valentine's Day. Trying to be crafty and what not. And it goes along with the being long distance thing. But that's the only clues anyone gets until the 16th's post.
Have a super, fantastic, great day!
