    Well it's getting harder being away from Austin

    especially since I don't know when I'm going to see him again. I'm feeling like it will be soonish but there's no telling. All I know is that I miss him so much. It also just makes me feel so much more disconnected from him. I just can't wait to be with him. This sucks.
