I didn't get to talk to my boyfriend today and it nearly killed me.

I went to eat sushi with two darling boys; one of which is gay, the other has been happily married for ten years. I drank wine and I studied. It feels like we've been on campus for weeks. There were six peacocks frolicking around the picnic tables and the rain let up for nearly a full day.

I love learning. I'm questioning my idea for a research paper only in that I think I may need to do a thesis instead. I love talking about communications and things we've done at work so they show a positive example to others. I love that my fabulous colleague (and boss) has so well prepared me for anything I could encounter here.

I get less sleep than I do back home. I go to bed hours later and wake up earlier.

I often find myself bringing those I love into my conversations. "Oh yes, the drive through Brooks is the smelliest drive ever. We do it whenever we drive to my boyfriend's parent's place in Cypress Hills."

I love school, but I didn't get to talk to my boyfriend today and it nearly killed me.

I felt exactly the same way whenever mine was away on work for a few days - before we moved in, we'd always at least talk once a day, but afterward it was so much worse because not only were you not talking for a day or two you weren't used to a big empty house!! *hug*

Still it sounds like a positive day - I wish mine were full of frolicking peacocks :)

Hang in there doll. You're doing great and embrace frolicking with peacocks while you can.

Oof! I know how that feels- texting is really good to help stave off those near death feelings but I hope you can have an overnight soon. This sounds really hard.
