Although I think its the fault of my roommates girlfriend- she posted a link on facebook about crime stats in Arlington- which included multiple things about girls being robbed late at night cause they were walking by themselves.
Good News... I have great friends who are willing to help me through this- by walking with me and not making a big deal out of me inconveniencing them.
More Good News... Despite the deadbolt on our apartment door being broken (which freaked me out more than a bit) and only had the extra little swing latch (like hotels have) closed- I managed to fall asleep both nights without too much worry/trouble (as soon as my neighbors stopped slamming doors that is). AND Its now fixed- so I can stop worrying!
Even Better News... Best weekend Ive had in quite some time. Dinner with some of my favorite girls- who are fellow Hokies and sorority sisters of mine Friday night, amazing Brunch with my the best ever former roommates Sunday- and making tentative plans for brunch/lunch/dinner/drinks/ whatever we can fit into the schedule with both groups for when my favorite dashing news anchor visits from Detroit in May (im pretty excited for my friends to meet him!).
One last comment.... Long distance relationships are miserably hard. I miss him all the time. But every second on the phone or skype lifts my heart in a way that nothing and no-one ever has before. Nothing worth having is ever easy and nothing easy is ever worth having. I survive day to day on the knowledge that this is making our relationship stronger, Ill get to talk to him every evening and Ill see him again soon (Only a month and a half left to go!!).
In the mean time I really should channel my pent up emotional energy into something constructive- like my Thesis. LOL.
