Ways I'm Keeping My Mind Busy, What About You?

So Evan is away at Basic training so i'm trying to do things to keep my mind busy, not to forget about him, or try not to miss him, but to just make the time pass more quickly.

First of all i started a project to keep myself busy but it is also a present for him when he graduates. I am making a scrapbook with a daily entry of something interesting that happend to me that day, or anything that happend that day and a daily picture to go with it. Like the first day says "I burned my neck with my flippin curling iron!!" and took a picture of the burn to put with it. I'm a pretty silly person and all of these things is what I would have sent as a random text message to him that always made him smile lol I am doing this every day until he graduates and then mailing him the final product to his tech school.

I also decided that since he is most definately going to be coming back totally RIPPED i should work out and look good for him too. So as of this week I am going to start working out. Nothing extreme just to tone up.

I am also going to start really cracking down on my schoolwork to get really good grades so he will be as proud of me as I am of him.

And lastly, I am writing him a letter about my thoughts, feelings, anything i did that day (that isn't in my scrapbook) in a letter and addressing it, stamping, it and sending it out each morning. Without fault. One letter per day. It lets me vent and feel like I'm talking to him.

Something else to keep my mind busy and feel closer to him is researching what the USAF is having them do each week in basic. By going to the official USAF website they have a rundown of everything they are learning and doing plus videos and pictures. There is also a Facebook page called USAF baisc training or something along those lines that has pictures posted of the people in training, so hopefully (fingers crossed) they'll end up posting some with my Evan in them :)

How are you guys keeping your mind busy and making time pass more quickly?
