long distant problem

Yes I’m in a long distance relationship, no we are not just playing.

10 things to appreciate in your LDR:

  1. You don’t always need to shave
  2. The texts you get from them make you smile at your phone like an idiot
  3. You still get butterflies just hearing their voice
  4. You get to have the cutest Skype dates
  6. You get to be a total romantic when writing letters and mailing them stuff
  7. You always get excited planning visits and talking about closing the distance someday
  8. Every visit is technically an adventure
  9. You really appreciate the little things that close distance couples overlook
  10. You know that if you survive the distance, you both can pretty much survive through anything
I hate the feeling when you have to say goodbye to someone you want to spend every minute with.

Neither Leo nor Guang Hong have been in a serious relationship before the relationship between the two of them. That and the fact that it’s an extremely long-distance relationship with two completely different cultures can sometimes cause problems. Some of them are funny- like that time Guang Hong burped rather loudly while having dinner with Leo’s family and didn’t excuse himself- but others have almost ended their relationship, like the month or so Leo kept missing Skype calls because of a sudden increase in school work and Guang Hong felt neglected and accused Leo of cheating. The issues have always been resolved, but some instances still sting. 

i miss you.

For once I’m trying to not procrastinate on a reading assignment. Whenever I have assignments due a week from when I learn about them I always make homework immediately due the priority and that’s primarily why I procrastinate. But today I was scheduled to work an extra hour so I used the extra time to map out how many pages a day I need to read to finish this book a day before it’s due. It’s called The Three-Body Problem and it’s a lot more interesting than I expected. My professor certainly didn’t do it justice when he described it in class. 

A quiet afternoon with some tea and reading is just what I needed. I’ve been having some relationship stress and I think today we finally found a way to make the situation work. It’s hard to care about someone far away and I’m learning whether or not long distance is something my heart can handle. 

I’m looking forward to having off from work this weekend. My hope is to use one day to sleep and another day to get as much work done as possible! 

Long distance relationships are hard, but they’re also incredible. If you can love, trust, respect, and support each other from a distance then you’ll be unstoppable once you’re physically together.
