Is it winter break yet?

Despite the fact that it is only the 5th week of class, I am ready to live with Matt again. I am ready for winter break. I am getting tired of now I see him, now I don't. At the same time, I am more used to it and it is going much better than last year. This weekend he is off to Nebraska to cheer on the Hokies and see his family, which is great...for him. It also means it will be 10+ days until I see him again. Granted I have 3 exams and a quiz to pass between now and then, but that only makes me feel marginally better, or worse. One of my classmates says she just immerses in her studies when she misses her significant other, so I suppose I'll have to do the same.

This weekend was quiet and involved some good sleep and productive library time. Matt is studying for his LEED certification and I studied for bacteriology. It was quite productive. I look forward to studying with Matt again in a few weeks until he passes his exam.

We went for a nice run at Pandapas Pond, the September Blacksburg weather has been absolutely beautiful, which makes long library days a necessary crime.

Today when Matt left he looked at me and said, "just keep plugging and remember why you're here." I know I want to be a great veterinarian one day, but why does it have to hurt this much sometimes?

when do classes end for you? we're only in our third week, bwah! also, i know this may not help much, but have you tried Skype? calls are for free and you can see each other on video if you have computer cameras (like on my Mac). my boyfriend and i have been together for 8 years and he's alllll the way back in the states so Skype does help...a little. i find it's a lot better than regular cell phone calls because i can actually see him.
