Would Appreciate A Little Insight!Time is ticking down until my long-term boyfriend flies out for BMT, and I already have concerns about graduation! I am extremely proud and excited for him. I know I will miss him (and cry and be depressed, it's a given...), but our relationship has withstood some major tests (we were in a situation last year where I was literally allowed no contact or communication whatsoever with him for three long months),
but we have never seen "breaks" as an option and take our relationship extremely seriously. I am not too too concerned (yet) about the distance since we've been in numerous long distances situations before and I am very aware of just how much having little to no communication with the love of your life for long periods of time can hurt (the AF is going to be a different beast entirely, I'm sure, but I'm doing everything I can to avoid going in blind...)
That being said, I do (already) have some concerns about his graduation from BMT! I am a full-time college student, and of course, just my luck, it appears that his graduation is going to fall on the Friday during my FINALS WEEK this semester... May 3rd!!
Fortunately, as of right now, the finals for all of my courses are scheduled early within the week, but between studying, moving out (I have to have all of my things out of here and stored elsewhere by noon on Saturday May 4th since summer semesters will be starting), and figuring out what the heck to do about this graduation situation, I will be running around like a chicken with my head cut off.
Worst comes to worst, some of my exams get moved, or other reasons will prevent me from attending the ceremonies entirely.
I am using every ounce of energy and time planning that I can muster however to avoid that!!!
So I guess I have a few questions I want to pose to ANYONE who can help or give any remote form of advice!!!
1) Should I start making hotel reservations and booking plane tickets now?? I am guessing the earlier I do this, the better, right??
2) If I am unable to attend the Thursday ceremonies due to super conflicting travel arrangements (which I already foresee happening), will that prevent me from attending the graduation on Friday and seeing him for the rest of the weekend in any way?? Is it possible to miss out on the first day, or do I have to sign in somewhere on that first day to be able to see him at all that weekend???
He is very very understanding and has already told me not to stress myself out if I cannot come, but I am trying my absolute hardest to make this a priority; he has been there for me in every situation imaginable so I genuinely feel like I HAVE TO be there! If there's a will, there's a way. At this point I feel like I would fly out to TX just to spend five minutes with him... so I hope you guys have some insight!!!
I am sorry for how super lengthy this post is. Summarizing has never been a forte of mine.
