On this day four years ago, a childhood classmate and I decided to catch up.
We went to Pho (my favorite meal, btw) then proceeded to play a couple rounds of putt-putt golf which I completely dominated. While driving to the course, I said, “This is what you have to deal with as one of my friends” which apparently was not the right thing to say (little did I know we weren’t just hanging out).
The evening ended with me sitting in front of his computer listening to the “music” of MC Frontalot. He’s not bad per se, but it’s nothing I would ever listen to on my free will. But he did grab my hand and peck me goodnight.
3.75 years ago, I started calling him boyfriend.
Two years ago, we closed the gap after being long distance for two years.
And today is our 4 year anniversary.
This past year was probably the hardest year thus far. We faced loss, frustration, and sleepless nights. In spite of everything, you’ve managed to keep straight A’s in your classes and work two jobs while still finding time to relax with me.
And on top of that, you’re there to listen to me rant about my day or lend a ear so I can practice for big presentations. You’re there to take care of the cats when I work late and when I’m not feeling well. Basically, when I’m down and out you’re up at ’em.
As Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Thank you for making me a better person and challenging me to grow. As we’re approaching the final stretch of our student lives, I’m so excited to see what we’re going to accomplish in the future.
I love you to the moon and back. Cheers to heading toward our 5 year anniversary. 🙂
