For Those Who Love Someone Far Away

For everyone going through a long-distance relationship.

For Those Who Love Someone Far Away
Carys Jeffrey

It's no secret that being in a long-distance relationship is hard.

Hard isn't even the word for it — it can be painful being so far away from someone.

You don't get to spend every day together. You don't get to enjoy mundane things like running errands and driving around town. You don't get to walk to class together or meet for lunch or have date nights.

You don't get to do a lot of those things.

Sometimes, you miss important days, like anniversaries, birthdays and holidays. You miss celebrating achievements with them, both big and small.

But it's the small things that you really miss the most sometimes. Like hugs and kisses, holding their hand, walking side by side, watching dumb movies, ordering pizzas, helping each other with homework.

Some days you feel distant like you aren't in sync with each other. You might be busy and miss a phone call, or just stressed and emotionally exhausted. Your schedules just might be opposite each other. You may just have an off day.

Some days you might just want a hug and a kiss, or just someone to sit with or bring you coffee.

Some days you go somewhere new and wish they were there to experience it with you.

Sometimes it's just really hard.

But then there are other days that are so much better. The days you get to plan trips and buy plane tickets. The countdown leading up to a visit and the anticipation of when they'll arrive. The excitement of picking them up at the airport.

The few, short days when you get to be with your person are the best days. The excitement of holding your person's hand on the bus or walking around in the hallways. Making dinner for each other or even getting to go on actual date nights out.

It's a feeling people lucky enough to be in a normal relationship will never understand.

For those who love someone far away, these few days make up for weeks away from each other.

We live an entire month of our relationship in just a few days, trying to pack in as much experience and love as we can.

When those few days come to a close you have to say goodbye and transition back into your normal routine. You have to live the next few weeks alone before you get to see your person again.

Some days are harder than others. Some days get tense and frustrating and others are just a little sad. But when you love someone who lives far away, you get used to that. You learn not to dwell on those sad days, but know that soon enough you'll be reunited with your person once again and pick right back up where you left off.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
