    I would think not seeing my bf

    or talking to him while he's away would motivate me to do homework but yet I'm still failing 2 classes and have no motivation at all to go to school, has this happened to anyone else ?

    I think I needed him today more

    than ever. You ever have one of those days where everything seems to be going wrong? They were little things...but without him here to comfort me I lost it. I just want to know how I learn to deal with things without him. He's my other half, I just feel lost.

    It's For The Bold Not The Fearful

    Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough.

    right after we met he had to go back to Oceana where he is stationed. He says that he's in love with me but some days I just don't feel it. I know he's tired or busy all the time, but I'm not sure how to adjust to all of this.
