August 15th

Dear Dan,

You left only hours ago, but it feels like days. I know grad school is only two years, but at this moment in my heart it might as well be an eternity. I know you are only 100 miles away, but not having you across town it feels like you are a world away. I miss you, sweetie, can you tellJ.

Mom and I got into it tonight. I have got to learn to not get sucked into her drunken moments of fury.  She said some pretty mean things about you and our long distance relationship. I just have to steer clear for another week before I head for school. I am so ready to be done with college.

Enough whining, tell me your news. How are the roommates? Will they be as focused as you on their studies? Either of them gamers? Of the three of you, who’s going to be the Felix? Cause I know it’s not going to be you…J.

I’m headed out with Jen tonight. She’s trying to convince me that yoga is the answer to all my stress. Do I seem over stressed to you?

I love you and am counting the days until I can give the kisses on this page in person.
