On Separation
   by stacy <>

I'll be graduating in May, moving to another state, getting married, and finding a job. These are all new things, and most people ask if I'm not scared. Well, I'm not. I'm not even especially excited, which is the other thing everybody wants to know. I'm just ready!

I've been living several hundred miles away from my fiance for as long as we've been engaged, and frankly, I'm sick of it. I'll be very glad when I can see him everyday and quit counting the days or the weeks til I can see him again. Long distance relationships deserve every PFFT!! you want to give them. They leave you drained, emotionally because you spend so much time thinking about and wishing you could be with the other person, and physically because, at least in our cases, we drive to see the other every other weekend or so. That's really exhausting.

I have a few really selfish complaints, too. Most of my friends have graduated or otherwise left the university I attend. I have a few close friends, but they stay busy with classes or work, and we rarely see each other. That means I spend most of my time by myself, bored, with nothing to do besides think about my fiance with whom I cannot be! It sucks!

I keep telling myself it will all be over in less than two months. In less than eight weeks, this will all be over, and I'll be able to focus on the stuff I should be focusing on, like getting that job and living in another state and having very few friends nearby. But first things first. PFFT! to the rest of the stuff.
