If I had to update on my life using one sentence, it would go something like this:
We’ve been doing a lot of eating, and a lot of chilling.
And then the sentence would be over.
I’m loving it here in Florida! Who wouldn’t??
Andy’s schedule isn’t too busy right now, so I get to see a lot of him.
And it’s a nice change not being so isolated for once!
My job keeps me pretty lonely, so it’s so nice having someone around all the time (a bonus that it’s my boyfriend)
I’ve been getting a lot of messages lately on Instagram from people asking me how I deal with long distance.
And it takes me so long to answer because I don’t think I do it very well!
But my answer is always the same.
Stay Positive. Give each other equal love. Know that if you can do long distance then you can basically do anything. And if you ever feel like your at your breaking point– then it’s probably not meant to be.
This time around, I get to see Andy for an entire month.
Andy forces me to stay on the positives of being able to see each other because that’s who he is.
He’s like a big ball of sunshine, that sometimes shines too bright in your eyes lol. But is always warm, and is always shining even when he’s covered in clouds.
I find myself sometimes thinking about how much it’s going to suck to leave him.
Because we got to spend so much time together, it’s going to suck even more when we leave.
This gets andy mad lol.
He’ll say something like ‘WHY DO YOU HAVE TO THINK THAT WAY? YOU’RE TORTURING YOURSELF!!’
And he’s sooo right.
But sometimes I can’ t help it!
My best answer is that every one deals with long distance differently, and although I might come off like I’m handling it well— I am not.
Am I insanely happy right now? 100% percent.
But will September be a low month for me? Absolutely.
You just have to keep trying to give yourself perspective and understand that there are more difficult things out there.
And yes, your commitment to each other is being ridiculously tested right now.
But the times you get to see each other are sooo worth it.
Have you ever tried cuddling with your bae before bed, and eventually just shoved away from each other because it just got way too warm?
When your in a long distance relationship… you still shove away, because its still simply too warm.
But you’re so okay with it, because the fact that your in the same room is enough.
I know it sounds like a such a shitty metaphor. But if you’re in a long distance relationship you’ll understand.
You get to get excited about the small things. And I’m so okay with that.
On a much more positive note, Andy and I are heading to Universal Studios next week!
You know what that means?
HARRY POTTER WORLD.
We originally bought the two-park package which included Universal and Islands of Adventure.
But once we were reminded of Volcano Bay (This massive, unreal new water park they just built), we had to add that to our list.
Stay tuned for lots of vlogs, lots of amazing pictures, and all the goodies I get while I’m there.
Sending you love and light wherever you are.
