    7 Hours

    7 hours. It might not seem like much, but to mean it is the longest time in the world. Meaning that we are apart, that we aren't together. I know things could be a lot worse, but right now it feels like hell trying to deal with those 7 hours difference.

    -6 Hours, And I Consider Myself Lucky

    I consider myself lucky for a few reasons, the top couple are; I feel that it's probably more difficult to be the person in the advanced timezone. The restraint from contacting someone for most of your day (because they're sleeping or whatever reason) would be an intense...
