An Open Letter to My Boyfriend

Distance makes the heart grow fonder.


Dear Boyfriend,

It's been twenty-four hours since I left you in Pennsylvania and I am still numb. I know I can't get over something like this overnight but it feels like I left you ten minutes ago. I feel there's so much that I didn't get to say. I know I could tell you anytime but I could never get the words out of my mouth in time. So here I go.

I took all our lunch/dinner dates, movie nights, island adventures, and mini vacations for granted. I never realized how fast time would fly and here we are: one hundred and twenty three miles apart. Eventually, those one hundred and twenty three miles will turn into two hundred and forty. Living five minutes away from each other really made this extremely difficult for me. There's no more calling you to hang out or getting Wendy's 4 for $4's at night. I don't know what to do.

There is no one more that I want to spend time with than you. Don't worry, I will make friends. You know I will. I'll never have a best friend like you. You know me better than I know myself sometimes so it feels weird to be four hours away from you.

I want you to know that I'll always be supporting you. I know you'll work your hardest to get to where you want to be. You're one of the most hardworking and determined people I have every met. There is not a challenge that you can't find a solution to. It makes me a little jealous yet, you inspire me to do my hardest every day.

Facetime does wonders for long distance relationships everywhere. Even though we lived five minutes away from each other, we still were on facetime every night so you could help me fall asleep, although, you were always the one to fall asleep first. I'm always a call away but seeing you in person is a thousand times better. Either way, seeing you on my computer screen will do. I miss hearing your voice and laugh.

Despite how much I didn't understand you, I miss you explaining car terminology to me. I loved the way you felt about working on cars. It made you special in a way. Sure, other guys have a passion for sports or good looking cars but you're different. I could feel the love you had for fixing your car. Although it needed so much repair, you took time to make the car seem brand new despite it's appearance. There's this confidence that just came off of you and it made me love you more.

I heard some fireworks last night and it made me think of all the times we would talk on the phone and ask each other if we heard the fireworks or the ambulance driving by. I miss that. In that moment, I wanted to call you and asked if you heard the fireworks but earlier you told me all you heard was frogs and crickets.

I miss you more than I can express. I can't wait to visit you and I can't wait for you to visit me! I love you to the moon and back. Don't forget about me. I mean I know you won't but might as well say it.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
