This is the first semester I've had a 300+ level course, and I'm taking three - genetics, virology, and parasitology. They're challenging, I wish this semester was over with. Come October 22nd, it should go by fast. That's the date my girlfriend leaves for marine corps basic training. As you can imagine, I'm a little nervous. In a 5 month time period, we haven't gone more than 3 days without seeing each other. We'll be spending 3 months apart while she's in bootcamp.
I'm proud of her. It's a great opportunity for her to establish her future, and I am very excited for her.
This is me reminding myself that I have to stay strong. In the past week, I've had to stop myself from shedding a few tears in her presence multiple times. I know that she'll feel more secure knowing I am secure and without doubts, so I try my hardest to keep a positive outlook. I think it comforts her, and I know that's my job, to support her wholeheartedly. And I do.
I'm in love.
These next 3 months. They're going to be tough, but it's the make it or break it stage at this point. And I have a feeling we're going to make it.
