Dealing with being Long Distance
My boyfriend and I just celebrated our one year anniversary and its been very strange for me. My boyfriend are in a long distance relationship. We met last year while I was studying abroad in Tokyo and were together there for about five months. In that time we moved in together and traveled to Thailand. After that we did about three months apart before he came to spend two and a half months in the US with me and my family.
Now we're doing long distance again until who knows when. That's what so strange and scary about it. I'm about to graduate in May and I'm looking for a job, hopefully in Japan. But there is this large amount of uncertainty and that makes me really scared. Unlike before I had a date in my head of when I'd see him again but now I'm just guessing, maybe June or July. I hate that. I don't like not knowing things as it is but when it comes to a job too it makes me stressed and scared.
Being long distance is extremely hard but I'm lucky that I'm still in school working on my thesis so keeping busy is really helpful. We also try and talk everyday but the time difference is pretty bad so we make do with what we can.
